48. There were plenty of details here, provided by the OP.

Sometimes, believe it or not, the most helpful response is the truth. Supporting someone in bad behavior just because she is one of your crowd is what adolescents do, not adults.

If the OP is, in fact, being as childish as her OWN description suggests, perhaps some honest feedback will nudge her to think about her attitude and start trying to show some gratitude to the parent who is SUPPORTING her, rather than acting like a spoiled adolescent.

Here's an idea: Try looking at this from the mother's perspective. The one who took in her daughter and is supporting her, and is now being called a BITCH on a public internet board because of a disagreement over the phone.

I know it's hard, since you don't know her...but she is a human being, too. Imagine that.
