  • Absolutely, what kind of friend would I be if I didn't let her know. Ask yourself this... Would you want to know if the rumor was about you or your child? My answer would be YES!

  • Depends on what it is and who the information came from. I don't pass on gossip that is irrelevant and coming from people who are constantly stirring up drama.

  • there are only reasons why I would intrude in the business of friend or foe...Abuse (all abuses) or death/possible death (including suisidal thoughts)

  • Depends on what the rumor was and where it came from. I would tell them if it were something serious or something I thought I could help with, but some things are just not worth mentioning.

  • Now days you can never be too careful,it doesn't matter if it is just that-an ugly rumor-now days there are kids committing suicide over nasty rumors that are going around about them at school and if a parent knows about them then there might be something that they can do, if the rumors are true and their child is potentially at risk then the parent should know also.
