Dear Dish-It, I Don't Like My New School

Dear Dish-It,

I just moved to a new school and I don't like it at all. I am trying to get to know people, but sometimes I think they don't want to get to know me. I say hi and what's your name and some questions on what they like, and most of the time they give me like one word answers. I want to get to know people, not like someone I just met... I'm talking about like having fun and laughing and playing around. I wish I was at my old school.

Dear honeychik,

Going to a new school is tough for everyone, even for the most outgoing and friendliest people. Too bad you've had a rough first few days of school, but keep in mind that everyone is starting a new school year and may be a little nervous, which is why they may be giving you one-word answers. Just give it time - making new friends in a new school isn't easy, but it isn't impossible. You're going to have to put yourself out there, even more than you already have. Try joining sports teams or extracurricular clubs at school. It's one of the best ways to meet people who you have stuff in common with. And by getting to know them, you'll eventually meet their groups of friends and pretty soon, you'll have a whole new crew to have fun and laugh and play around with!


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 Dish-It here. Send all of your questions to deardish@kidzworld.com But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checkin' the column cuz she's prob'ly answerin' somethin' very similar to your question while you're out doin' somethin' else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if ya've got words of wisdom you wanna share,We'll dish 'em up, too.

Does School Suck?

  • Yes - it totally sucks.
  • It sometimes sucks, but usually it's not too bad.
  • No - school rules.
  • I don't know, I'm home-schooled.

Dear Friend, I am really sad about your matter. Ignore them. Yes, I do understand your feelings. You care for your family, everyone does. But Family isn't always right. If you pay attention to them you may get addicted to alc*hol too. It's normal for every person to care for their family, kith and kin. But not every person whom you care is good. I am totally not talking anything bad about your mom or you sister. But I've experienced this in my own family. Hope my message helped you out. It was a pleasure to help you out :) Thanks, Siyali (Delancy)

I grew up around violence, dr*gs and alc*hol and my mum was always fighting and on dr*gs she stopped ages ago but still drink's sometimes and these days I still think she is doing dr*gs still. My sister is addicted to dr*gs (but I wont' say what kind ) and is using them nearly every day. I know I shouldn't be getting into my mum's/sisters business but I am really worried. The other day we went and picked up my sister (who is 22 just to let you know) to go and get something for here down the street and before she got out of the car she said to my mum have u got any dot and I knew what it meant I am really worried about them and don't know what to do.
