Daughter's ex friend and her mother can't stop lying

Last week I ended up being approached by the mum of one of my daughter's ex friends whilst at a school sports match. My daughter keeps this ex friend at a distance as she's a habitual liar and I just tolerate the mother for easiness.

She started telling me her really nasty opinions about her daughter's best friend, some things I was shocked to hear especially as her DD relies so heavily on that relationship. I didn't respond however, thinking that it was none of my business. Nor did I repeat what she'd said to anyone.

My dd comes home from school to tell me her ex-friend is going round telling all the girls at school that her mother told her I'd been saying those things and I'm absolutely furious. I've been onto her to give her a piece of my mind and now have to speak to the other girl's mum to explain. I can't believe I've had to become embroiled in this family's lies.

Why do you now have to speak to the other girl's mum to explain?

These people obviously have a lot of problems. I understand that you are angry, but whatever you do, you are not going to be able to control their behaviour. People who know you will know you are not the nasty person they are portraying.

IIWY I would refuse to engage, stay well away from them and advise my dd to do the same.

Ha, I know a woman/daughter drama llama combo like these two!

Just back away. Do not engage. Do nothing but rise above it. They will almost certainly move their drama towards someone else if you fail to engage at all!

Thanks, you're both right. I just feel my relationship with the other mum has now been compromised over something I didn't even say. I just hope my DD doesn't come home from school with more nonsense from this woman or I might flip my lid angry
