The original post was to vent my frustration in her telling her child off for doing things a child does. And she goes on and on and on about it. it gets embarrassing and uncomfortable.
We once went out to dinner with them (never again) her DD wanted to sit between me and my husband after the meal and she asked politely and we were happy to have her there but the friend then began to tell DD off for being a horrible child and being naughty. I had to leave skipping desert because it was embarrassing having her talk to her child like that when she had done nothing wrong.
My point is I needed to vent somewhere (and here it was) or maybe I would have told her how to parent her child
