One example....a mother of 3 asked me this. Every time they went as a family to someone's house for dinner, they were never invited back. I know exactly why. Her kids beat the Heck out of each other. Do this wier dying pig squeeal when they're angry, and their sister is following in suit. These are bigger kids. 10ish and under. Not to mention the screw you attitude not only to their parents but other adults. Bounce balls off all the walls. Break things constantly. All the while considering them self and outstanding quality character family. Well, OUCH.... I don't want to tell her why. It's quite obvious.
So....do you duck and dodge the situation? Or do you tell her like it is?
Note: this is just one example.

I probably wouldn't even be friends with her to begin with if she talked about how good a parent she is and her kids are awful. But pretending I am Yes I would tell her since she asked. And if she couldn't handle it, she can hit the door. One of my pet peeves about people is asking me something, and then trying to argue with me about my answer. It's rude to do so and it's my answer, not up for questioning. I even warn some when they ask me something now because I know how they are. And some aren't even worth talking to because they're just looking for support to soothe their conscience. She may not agree with you if you tell her why. But you need to tell her that if there was no problem at all you would not be finding yourself in this situation over and over. She is the common denominator so she needs to look within for that answer.
