Dear Dish-It: My Mom Hates My BF

Dear Dish-It,

If my boyfriend is acting weird because my mom don't like him and he knows it, what should I do!!

worried


Dear worried,

If you think your mom isn't giving your boyfriend a fair chance, why don't you try and set something up so the three of you can spend some more time together, getting to know each other better? If that's just not possible, you can at least try talking to your mom and communicating to her (in a calm way) why she should be more open-minded about the guy you're seeing and why you feel he's really a great person.

Your other option is to listen to your mom. Parents usually want the best for their kids, so maybe your mom has some legit concerns about the guy you are dating that you need to be aware of. Ask her why she doesn't like him and see if any of the things she says seem true - she may be trying to protect you from getting hurt, in which case you should take her advice!

I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.

No. I don't like those people at the mall. Sometimes, they ask my family and I (usually directed at my mom and sister, but sometimes at me, too. Even though I'm under 13. Not for long though.) if they want their hair done. And sometimes I'm so tempted to say, "No thank you. I did my hair today. Do you think I want it done?" But of course I never do. It's kinda disrespectful. So we just usually say No thank you. My mom, sister, and I now have a solution for that (my idea when I was maybe ages 9-11) Don't make eye contact with them and pretend that they aren't there.
