I'm gentle with peoples' feelings. i don't want to hurt anyone. I am SO concerned about my friends' daughter. My friend knows that her daughter is sleeping around but she's afraid to speak to her (daughter is 24). She knows, not because her daughter tells her but because she doesn't come home some nights. My friend provides everything for her kids (she has 3 kids -24, 19, and 14). She's a caring mom. She hates when her kids are mad at her and will do anything to make them happy. Her husband loves his kids but feels that child raring is for women (he just brings home the bacon).
Her daughter is having unprotected sex with some of the boys in her college. Her reputation is spreading, she's taking Plan B and having 1 night stands. I know this because my cousin goes to college with her daughter.
It's none of my business but I'm torn between talking to the daughter, my friend or leaving it alone. The daughter is legally an adult. My problem is am I failing her by not trying to express my concern? I am failing my friend because I avoid telling her to talk to her daughter?
If I tell my friend what i know, it'll only hurt her. If I mind my business, the daughter may do something that destroys her life.
What would you do in this situation? Talk or leave it?
