30 Days of Honesty

Day 10 :: Someone you need to let go or wish you didn’t know
My oldest friend's daughter. I believe she's a nice girl, deep inside, but she's running amok, and I'm sorry I know about it. A high school freshman, she began smoking pot and cigarettes over the summer, has been making out with other girls, and posts comments like "Itz Halloween motherfuckers" and "u r a fag but my fag" on her Facebook page.

I have mentioned to my oldest friend that her daughter needs a tighter leash, that more attention should be paid, but to no avail. I realize that since I am a barren spinster, mothers don't appreciate my parenting tips. I plan to "unfriend" the girl if things don't look different by the end of the month. Reading her words and learning of her activities bother me, and there's nothing I can do about it, so knowing it serves no purpose.

  1. Hm, have you considered sending a message to your friend's daughter yourself and explain to her that you are worried about her wellbeing. Since you aren't her mother, or even a relative, perhaps she'll listen to you.

  2. Unfriending her is your smartest move. It's a shame that some moms think that having a child gives them all the answers with it. We barren spinsters couldn't possibly have any perspective. (insert eye roll)

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
