Dear Dish-It: My Mom Won't Let Me Sleep Over

Dear Dish-It,

My mom won't let me stay over at my friend's house because my brother cries if I'm not home. Once, I rented some good movies that I wanted to watch with my friends, but I couldn't even watch it with them! What should I do?
Mike Dollar


Dear Mike Dollar,

An easy fix would be to ask your mom if your friends can stay at your house instead of you staying at theirs. That way, your bro won't bawl and you'll still get to have a fun sleepover and watch fun flicks with your pals. But, I think your bro needs to deal. It's sweet that he loves you so much that he needs you around all the time, but he needs to adjust to the fact that you can't possibly be around all the time! You should talk to your mom and tell her that sometimes, you need time to hang alone with your friends, and that maybe your brother would get better with the whole separation thing if you did it more often. Even though you're pretty frustrated with the situation, don't freak on your mom. Just talk rationally and you'll have a better chance at getting her to understand how you feel. Good luck!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    • They're cool most of the time.
    • Are you kidding? I get to do whatever I want!

I got the  books and all i need would be extra graph paper and character sheets....  Anyways my dad gave me this idea on Friday and I was thinking of it today. Maybe find a few nerds like me... who knows. My dad told me people would make fun of me, but i don't care.... You will face a little making fun of, but as long as you can get past that and ignore others, I think you'll be just fine. If you're already aware of any others like you throughout the school, maybe you should look into making a group! Slip them a note or talk to them yourself, see if they're interested. Good luck!
