A mother’s recent video has struck a chord with fellow parents.

Kristina Kuzmic, a YouTube star and mother of three children, posted the clip titled “I’m not your friend, kid! (Because I love you.)”

In it, she outlines how it’s her job to be her kids’ mother–not their best friend.

She urges other parents not to give in to their children’s demands when the kids get angry, insisting parents should “hold [their] ground.”

The video has received lots of praise. 

“All parents need to adopt this approach,” said one user.

“Woooooo! Go mama!!! My mum and I talk about this all the time hahaha,” said another. 

“I watched this TWICE because I thought it was so funny! Well done!!” added yet another.
