Our expert says:
Its a sad fact of life that as one grows older, good friends die, and it becomes harder to make new ones, for various reasons. Her friend's daughter sounds like an immature and deeply selfish creature, sponging off her parents and apparently uninteretsed in genuinely helping them or even her own children. Why is this girl not even paying to feed her own children - too mean or too greedy to spend whatever she can just on herself ?
She should surely at least not only get the best paying job she can, but also should go to Maintenance Court and get proper maintenance paid for the kids expenses by her various ex's.
This girl is as hard-hearted as they come, and not at all tender hearted. Like all sociopaths, she may care deeply about her own feelings, but not, apparently, about those of anyone else.
The problem is that it is NOT your problem. You have apparently tried, as any good friend would, to persuade the mom ( I'm guessing that's Natasha ? ) to stop babying her awful daughter, but if she chooses to continue to be exploited she's entitled to do so.
I hope she is being pressed into at least getting proper medical attention for whatever her current ailment is, and that her doctor might be clued up as to what is happening, and could strongly advise her to stop all this hard work for her lazy daughter. But none of us change habits easily, even really bad habits like spoling a rotten aging child.
