I have a classmate whose ‘mother’ is not her real mother but just a caretaker who takes care of her until her own mother went to jail. When I met this caretaker, I cannot help but observe how she was behaving abnormally. For example insisting my classmate is her daughter and forcing her to call her mom, alienate my classmate from her parents and relatives, move to our city to get away from anyone who used to know my classmate, create dependency and reliance so that my classmate always feel a need to run back to her. She is possessive and would get angry when my classmate went missing for probably just an hour. The thing is my classmate don’t seem to think there is an issue.
This caretaker genuinely believes that she is the mother of my classmate and would share with me stories about her growing up and while being pregnant with her. It being all false. I would just like to research more about this condition but I don’t even know where to start. Can someone give me clues ?

Psychosis? (Can't determine real vs. Imaginary)
Non mental health diagnosis issues: grooming a child, control issues.
