Just learnt that my teen is known as the “bad influence” by the parents of his mates.

Parenting: Doing it right since 2003.

Unless you are abusing your child then there isn't really a right and wrong when it comes to parenting - just different.

Do you want to say more about it?

You’re not really proud are you? I hate it when my DS is seen as the bad boy which is often

What does he get up to that's seen as a bad influence?

Why is he seen as that?
Odd post.

I think the OP is using self deprecating humour!

Your child being a bad influence is funny? confused

Don't worry my DD is too , because their wonderful children only smoke/drink/rebel due to DD 🙄. I think those rose tinted glasses need to come off.

Ah when I was a teenager all my mate's parents thought I was the nice, sensible one. They were wrong. Your son's probably just the one taking the flak for everyone.

I’m sure the OP is being ruefully sarcastic with the “proud mum” title.

I have a friend that does this with our toddlers hmm I think it’s called rose tinted spectacles. Your children are responsible for their behaviour at all times imo.

Yeah this was my son too, he was the only one that would get into trouble because he is fairly honest and would admit what had happened but wouldn’t snitch on his mates.

Depends on what this bad influence is, surely, folks? It could be that it's something fairly innocuous. OP hasn't told us.
