Mommy Dearest: Uncensored Friends

Mommy Dearest,

My friends love my daughter, and she can't get enough of their stories. The problem is that these single women aren't used to telling the abridged versions of their weekend tales, many of which are not appropriate for a 6-year-old's ears. I don't want to censor them, but I also don't want them talking about "hooking up" or their weight issues in her presence.

To read the response from Mommy Dearest,


Uncensored Friends,

Friendships aside, your responsibility is to your daughter and you have every right to request that certain topics like sex and body image issues not be discussed in front of her. Realizing it's in the child's best interest, I'm sure your friends will happily oblige or adopt some Samantha Jones "coloring" code words. If this isn't the case, you might want to leave your lil girl with a sitter the next time you head out for fun with the ladies and adult conversation.
