I suggest she find a counselor to talk to about all of this. If she feels uncomfortable with her daughter around her father, she should listen to that feeling. The gut often knows things that our mind doesn’t know.

My family had a similar situation with my grandfather. It took many years for this to come out in the open. Unfortunately, many family members were fine with hiding things and pretending things didn’t happen for a long, long time.

In my grandfather’s case, there was child pornography involved and he did end up touching at least one of his granddaughters. The family secret finally came out 10 or so years ago. 

Encourage her to get help. She is not crazy. The family is ill from all these secrets. The family is trying really hard to hide what is going on and it is making your friend feel like she’s the ill one.
