My former SIL is also my best friend. Her teen son lives w/ his dad b/c to say he's a handful is an understatement. Over the last few months, some of his behavior effected me & my family- & bottom line is, my husb & I dont trust him & dont want him in our home. How can I tell my best friend of 25 yrs. that she & her daughter are welcome -but not her son. I'm scared to lose her as a friend. Even tho she knows how he is, it will still hurt to hear it from a friend.

I'm not going to say anything different than anyone else, but you need to tell her like it is. There is nothing worse than having someone in your home that you do not trust. You can not turn back to them, it is ridiculous. We have had that problem with my little brother's friend. Nothing was safe in the house and I would not let him in. My brother got mad, but started hanging out with his friend some where else. It may hurt your friendship, but she may be more understanding. Good luck.
