Fear Factor?

Ask Janet anything.
Dr. Janet Taylor

Lions, tigers and bears ...oh my. If only it were that simple. Now everywhere you look there's been an attack by some wild animal. Eagles are swooping out of the sky, sharks are looking for a take-out order and, well, you get the picture.

It makes you wonder if a grizzly attack at your local mall is next. Not. Cuz as a recent expert put it, "You have a better chance of getting attacked by your toilet than by a shark." So chill out. Don't be scared.

What gives you the jeeper's creepers? Is it walking by a spooky house, or some creepy guy in homeroom? Have no fear cuz chances are no matter what your worst nightmare is, it will never happen.

Fear does things to your mind, plays tricks. It can keep you up at night, give ya butterflies and make you think you're losing your mind.

The night before your first day of school were ya nervous? Did ya imagine all kinds of scenarios that were totally wack? By the end of your first day, it was probably all good. Right??

Well, here's a word of advice. Don't waste your time on "what ifs." Deal with reality. Buckle your seat belt, don't talk to strangers and stay away from drugs and alcohol. Stay on the positive tip and then do the best that you can.

    Hi there! My most important advice would be to be yourself! live your life! do the things you want to do. If you've moved past what happened with your feelings for one another, just go and enjoy your time. If things are weird, it'll be because of her, not you. Stay positive and calm and I'm sure you'll have fun!   Hope you have a good time!

    I think that rubber band bracelets are totally in right now. And they are easy to make on a loom! Head scarves are also in as well. Hope you found this helpful!

    Wow! This sounds so frustrating! Maybe talk to your mom about what's going on. Ask her why she's doing it. She might just be worried about your safety online. More and more there are unsafe people talking to kids on the internet. I'm sure your mom just has your best interest at heart. See if you two can agree on how to keep you safe online!   Good luck!

    One thing that I have noticed is that a lot of people seem to think they should have a boyfriend or a girlfriend as soon as possible, but they don't need to until its the right time just for them. You don't have to be forced to fall in love with someone if you don't want to. Let love come in its own time. And to keep away from any problems with her if she may become mean, try just forgetting about what happened and treat her like a normal person you know, and try to avoid any arguments. If she becomes mean, maybe just walk away for a bit. And if she is still being mean, maybe confront her asking what you have ever done to make her this way towards you. If you have done nothing, then she will have no reason to be mad at you so its not your problem she is being mean so you don't have to be stressed about it. I hope this helps! :)
