Dear Dish-It: I Like A Karate Kid

Karate Crush

Dear Dish-It,


I have a huge crush on a boy in karate. What should I do?


makena1999


Dear M1999,


You didn’t really say in your question whether or not you are in karate with the boy you like, but it sounds like you are. In which case, you’re off to a good start! Sharing the same interests and liking the same activities and hobbies is often the foundation of what makes a good relationship.


If you’ve read some of my answers to other kids’ questions, you’ll know that I’m not a fan of telling a guy that you like him. If that’s what you feel like you have to do, then go ahead and do it. Just make sure he hears it straight from you – the worst thing you can do is send your friends to tell him you like him or, worse, send your friends to tell his friends to tell him you like him. Those kinds of things never work!


What I really think you should do is keep on being friends with your crush. Show him what a fun, smart, cool girl you are and he will probably realize he likes you, too!


If you've got a burning question, need some love advice or find yourself thinking about things like sex, depression, self-esteem, boyfriends, girlfriends, best friends, bullying or peer pressure, don't hesitate to Dish-It here. Send your questions to deardish@kidzworld.com. And if you hang out in the chat rooms with other Kidzworld members who know you by your username, just send in your secret question using a different nickname if you want to stay anonymous – we promise that no one will ever know it's you. Remember: Dish-It gets a load of letters every day so it may take a while to reply to yours. Keep checking back for her reply, or watch for answered Dish-It questions that are similar to your own.

    I'd also shift the blame onto the parents. It's disgusting and appalling to know that parents don't care about their own child's wellbeing.

Her parents didn't tell her do anything with anyone , She did. Her parents isn't involved in this case!!  She's 13. Kids that age base some of their decisions off of what their parents say. Her parents should have told her what's right and what's wrong, which they most likely didn't do since apparently they didn't care.
