If the mothers are your friends, then you should be able to be completely open and honest with them about the events that have transpired. Another option would be to have a group meeting with all of the mothers and their daughters and put everything out there on the table. Honesty is always the best policy. The second option may be difficult to do but it will clear any misconceptions. Everyone will be able to state their feelings which might be beneficial for all. The meeting must end on a positive note with no hard feelings.
I hope that this has helped . If so , please ACCEPT. Thank you and have a great day!!!
