The difference is that parents cannot change but friends can. If you don't like your friends, you can let them go and get other friends but with parents, there is no way you can change that no matter the situation/circumstances.

You must to know that your brother or sister, and your parents are the only ones to help you when you need it the most. They give you the best piece of advice because they are more experienced by the age they have. And they want only what's best for you. Your family never betrays you. They will stay there.
It's a good thing to have friends. But, at the same time, we have to keep a close relationship with our parents. We should be aware of the fact that no friend can be a substitute for a family. Both family and friendship have to take certain different places in your life. You mustn't make a confusion between or family and our best friend.
Parents conceive you, feed & raise you. A parent can be your friend when you get older, but most of your friends will be about your age. Friends stick by you & you have chosen each other. We can't choose our families, unfortunately. And "Zhe" is wrong. Family members can turn on you worse than anyone! Sometimes family ISN'T everything. Sometimes your friends are your family. People with very little life experience should refrain from giving advice about some matters.
