My Mom Doesn't Like My Sister.

I have a friend, let's call her Kelly. We're so close that I consider us sisters. So a few years ago, I was on FaceTime with Kelly. We were talking about if paranormal activity tends to happen in smaller or larger houses. I asked her if it could happen in my house. Kelly said to show me the size of my house, so I did. I wasn't showing her my belongings, just the size of each room. So, I get to the living room. My mom is sitting on the reclining chair, and she asks me who I'm on the phone with. When I tell her Kelly, she goes "why are you showing her our house? She knows where we live, she could steal from us." Kelly felt offended, to be honest, I would too. She said something along the lines of "why would I steal when I have everything I need at home?" My mom didn't like that, and she started being rude to Kelly. I didn't say anything during the whole situation because I felt as though my mom said something out of line and Kelly responded. Now, my question to everyone and anyone who is reading this: is my mom wrong or is my sister wrong? Was I wrong for not saying anything? It's been almost 5 years since this happened; I have been moved out of Kelly's state for almost 3 years, and my mom still scoffs at me when I FaceTime Kelly.. What do I do to get her to like Kelly, if I can?

Your mom was wrong to utter such a statement but she has her reasons of being protective. She personally don’t know your friend but she shouldn’t have judged her. The way the world is now it’s hard to trust people. Kelly was wrong to respond back as well. She should have just ignored that and if she values you as a friend, she would value your family as well. What Kelly did only destroyed her very chance of proving to your mom that she’s not the person your mom thinks she is.

Moms tend to be overly protective but young people don't realize that. They just say anything they like to older people. I think as @toniganzon said, Kelly was wrong to reply your mother.

I feel that your mom is wrong. She shouldnt have given such a reply to your friend. I dont want you to feel bad but its not right.

@HannahLeigh518 Your thought process is definitely right. Nobody should say such answers when you know that the one about whom you are saying is on the line.

Your mom was wrong.That was so mean!! You know about your mom and friend but you didn't do anything so she opened her mouth.If your mom doesn't like when you facetime with her till now,you will not talk her in front of your mom! Tell about your friend and her background to your mom that she can understand her or you guys can go to somewhere that they will know each other better.you can convince your friend about your mom's character.

your mom shouldn't have said that while your on facetime with kelly.. she should have at least tell it when it's done. It's rude to accuse someone but I couldn't blame her she was just being over protective perhaps.

Anybody who is accused of something unfairly will react harshly. Your mother has been hurtful and I cant blame Kelly for reacting that way.
