Dear Dish-It, I'm Having Problems at School


Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

I have some problems at school. All of the girls in the "popular" group pick on me. It's been going on like this for 5 years now. They call me fat because I'm the size of some adults and not petite like them. I hate it!!! They make fun of me for no reason!!! I've come home crying over a dozen times. I feel alone a lot. I do talk to my mom, and she's had numerous talks with my principal, but he never does anything about it. Please help me. I don't know what to do about it. And I really don't want to be bullied anymore!!!

Dear Claddagh,

Your email really got to me, because I know it's something that so many kidz are going through... and it's something I think every kid has gone through (or will go through) in their life. It's sad that we all have to be so stupidly mean to each other. All the advice I can give you is this - do not lose hope. These "popular" girls are not better than you. In fact they obviously aren't very good people at all. They don't know what they are talking about and you shouldn't let it bother you. Do you have any after school activities or weekend activities you participate in? If you don't, you should think about joining something - take an art class, volunteer somewhere, join a sports team, take dance lessons - anything. It'll give you a new way to meet decent people and something fun to do to take your mind off these losers at school. It's amazing how it'll make you feel better about yourself too.


If the principal keeps ignoring the problem, skip him and go above his head to whomever his boss is. Your mom might be reluctant to do that, but it's for the best, and may be the only way this problen gets resolved. These "popular" girls may be picking on other people who aren't as strong as you and may not be able to handle it as well. And why should you have to handle it? It's not cool behaviour and these girls should be told as much - and punished if need be. Hang in there, Claddagh! You just have to keep believing that you don't deserve to be treated this way and that, one day, it'll all pass. Because it really will.


We've had lots of peeps writin' in about wanting to have sex. Here's what one member has to say about all the girls wanting to "get it on."


Dear Dish-It,

To all the girls that are young, like 13 or 14, and having sex - that is so stupid! Yes, I know it feels good and everything, and it is enjoyable but do you think that one night that you enjoyed is worth nine months of hell? Then, after that nine months, there's however long the labor is! If your going to have sex please don't be stupid and have the guy WEAR A CONDOM! BE SAFE!

EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
