My mom is becoming really buddy-buddy with my best friend. She asks her personal questions about me in front of me making everyone uncomfortable. What can I say to both my mom and my friend to avoid this scenario? I'm happy they like each other but this is too much!
It seems like you have to have a heart-to-heart with your mom. Tell her that you are proud of her and happy that you can introduce her to your friends but this is a case of TMI — too much information. You are a young adult now and should decide what you want to tell your mother about yourself. Your friend is probably being polite to your mom and is unsure of how she should respond. Maybe you could let her know about the changed policy after you speak to your mom.
