M reader simleymiley101 wrote: "My mom's friend is always trying to intimidate me. She always comments on what I eat and says there are always healthier choices and makes me feel bad about myself. Should I tell my mom or just leave it because theyre really good friends?"
And M Girl's answer is: "Hm, this is a tough one! You want to make sure you're respectful, especially becaus she is your elder AND your mom's friend, but you also shouldn't feel like you are getting put down. When she makes comments, she probably doesn't realize how hurtful she is being and just wants you to be healthy and happy. Mention it to your mom and see how she wants to handle it. Maybe she can mention to her friend to lay off the comments about food without being disrespectful or hurting her feelings. Good luck!!"
