[ - ] Dd keeps on finding friends with dysfunctional parents. I have no problem with the kids but I find myself getting pulled in the drama. Why can't she just be friends with kids with nice parents who are either together, amicably divorced, or at least legally separated without any weird soap opera drama.

I want to be sympathetic but his reaction to the situation is so negative and alienating and overshare-y that I wish he would just vanish.
