Ask Amy: Parents teach daughter how to be a 'sugar mama'
Dear Amy: You should not have encouraged “Hate to Ask” to ask for a portion of her mother’s inheritance gift to a friend.
The mother DID know that a mutual fund could grow, and the inheritance to her daughter wouldn't, and this was her choice.
I believe that the friend got what they deserved, and so did she.
Dear Disappointed: I do believe that people sometimes designate others as beneficiaries to accounts, and then basically forget about it – but your response is valid.
