This is a question Helicopter Parents

Back when young ScaryDuck worked in the Dole office rather than simply queuing in it, he had to deal with a claimant brought in by his mum. She did all the talking. He was 40 years old.

Have you had to deal with over-protective parents? Get your Dad to tell us all about it.

Good advice
I was going to do a long blather-y post as a mother, blah blah, but y'all beat me to the good advice. Don't say anything to her-even if she knows it's all going to shit, she doesn't want to hear it. 12 year old girls want to be with their mom even if Mom is Eva Braun.
Tell your friend to just be there to pick up the pieces non-judgementally and make her feel safe. That's the best dad he can be right now.

She'll be grateful in long run.

I'm starting to think you might be right.
If he writes to her it might come across a bit preachy and insulting.
