"YTA, your friend has lost her child, her other children have lost their sibling. The world doesn't revolve around you or your child, I'm sorry to break it to you but you two are so far down on her priority list you barely exist right now. Figure out a way to deal with your daughter's grief of losing her friend on your own, it's not her responsibility to look after your child as well." 💔

"YTA. You're allowed to put your daughter first, but you have NO RIGHT to ask another parent to do so. Especially because she just lost a child and has young children who are grieving also. You should be asking how you can help her and lighten her load--not ADDING to it!! She has been a SAINT to be so patient and to respond to your daughter's texts, and to answer you honestly about her feelings rather than going off on you. That poor woman." 😔
