  • Sounds like you just need to tell her and if she just can't get it, stop talking to her.

  • Tell your friend to ask her, its not your deal ,if she has a big problem with it, tell her to confront the mom not you

  • She sounds too whacko in my opinion. And she's trying to be controlling too. Too much drama. Tell her what you told us. You just have to be honest and then tell her to back off.

  • Trying to suck you into the drama much?? I don't think there is any better way of telling her than to just come straight out and say what you need to say.
    And from your second post.... there is NO way in hell I would let my child around this adult ever again. That's messed up.
    Just shut her down by telling her that it's not your place to speak for another mother and that she'll have to get her answers from the horses mouth - so to speak.

  • So basically she's upset because she thinks your daughter stole her friend... sheesh...
    We can't choose our kids friends unfortunately. This woman needs to stay out of it and let the kids just all work out their own thing... and as for ANY person taking my child out in a boat of any kind, especially if she coudlnt' swim, I'd be oen pissed off Mom! If that woman took my kid out there all alone or did the questioning... I'd likely go over there and tell her I've got a little while, let's sit down and you can just ask ME all of the questions you want to know, I've nothing to hide... get to asking or I'll start talking!
