Dealing with Bullying

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!

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.
