I stay away from her because of my daughter
I have had a friend for more than six years. We had a disagreement last year. I really miss her, but she has ways about her that I can't stand.
I talked to her. She told me she's not what people say she is, but my mom caught her in the act. I got mad at her because I have defended her a lot, even when I was not sure.
She's upset with me for calling her a bitch, which I didn't. I have heard men call her worse names, not saying it is right.
I really miss her and wish to have her around, but she won't change. I have a daughter who loves her. What should I do?
Dear S. H.
What you need to do is not condemn your friend. Assure her that in spite of what she has done, she can rely on you as a friend.
However, if you know the type of life she is living will have a bad effect on your daughter, you should not allow her to visit your home or go out with you if your daughter is present.
