Throwback to UB - need your advice. Our family is quietly wealthy, we live below our means. I am proudly thrifty and trying to raise my kids the same. I heard through the grapevine that a 13 yo girl my dd considers a very close friend said in a group conversation (my dd was not there) that “oh her family could never afford that” about something expensive and then justified her logic with an example of a small expense i had declined for my dd as I didn’t feel it was worth the money. I am disappointed in the friend and beyond annoyed with the mom for planting these seeds in her kid’s mind. I really want to address this with the mom. She and I aren’t particularly close and my dd doesn’t go to school with hers so the friendship isn’t an essential one. And at this point it is hard for me to honor the girls’ friendship if that is how the other girl would talk about mine, There have been other issues over the past couple of years but this one is feeling like the straw breaking the camel’s back. Advice on whether to address or simmer? Tia.
