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

Dish-It serves up advice about family problems.
Dear Dish-It

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 .

I wouldn't worry about getting "in the middle of their relationship". If he makes a pass at someone else (you?) then that's HIS problem, not yours... and he probably wasn't worth your friends' time in the first place. Sorry, but you can't fix other people's stupid. And if it's you who's chasing, remember: friends are more important than some stupid/angsty short-term fling. Trust me-- I lost a few friends that way, and those relationships doesn't last very long afterwards. #TeenageWisdom

    I rather you tell them the truth.....It's better to get help during times like this.. But if you wanna go down THAT road. (which includes lying, deep guilt, and possibly more scars...just a warning.) Here's how. 1. Hide them, wear bracelets long sleeves, whatever. just do it. 2. LIE. say you cut your self from glass of a REALLY bad paper cut...anything. 3. STOP!. Don't cut, easiest thing to do. At least let the scars fade... Like I said, I don't really want to help you with this stuff. TALK to someone. I cannot stress this enough. Good Luck....
