Complete enthymeme: A parent is not a friend because being a child’s friend can lead to a hindrance in discipline, because it is an unequal relationship, and because children need authority figures in their lives.

Reason# 2: Because it is an unequal relationship.
Warrant #2: A parent and child relationship is not equal.
