Dear Dish-It: I Read My Sister's Diary

Dear Dish-It,

I read my sister's diary... And well she likes a boy. And our mom doesn't like us liking boys... So should I tell my mom?

Dear Copper Spy 3,

No, you shouldn’t tell your mom something that you read about in your sister’s diary. Why? Well, because you really shouldn’t have looked in her private, personal diary in the first place! Technically, the information you have about your sister liking a boy is not something you should even know – so what you need to do now is forget you ever read about it!

If knowing that your sister is doing something that may not be safe is bothering or worrying you, then the only person you can talk to about it is your sister. That, of course, will mean that you will have to reveal to her that you read her personal diary – and I’m pretty sure she’s not going to be too happy with you about that.

Still, if you are worried about her, it’s probably worth it to say something to her. However, I don’t think her liking a boy – even if your mom doesn’t think it’s a good idea – is something you need to worry about too much. Lots of people have feelings that others may not agree with – and many of those people use writing as a way to deal with their feelings without actually having to act on them. So, as long as your sister isn’t doing anything to hurt herself or anyone else (including you and your mom), I think that this is something you should probably just forget you ever read about.

And, in the future, DON’T READ YOUR SISTER’S DIARY!

Who Do You Dig More - Jessica or Ashlee?

  • I love Jessica!
  • Ashlee is so much cooler than her sister.
  • I think they are both pretty talented.
  • Neither. I'm more of a Good Charlotte fan.

The loss of my grandad was horrible. I felt so sad at the time. I felt like i would never stop crying when my parents told me. It still makes me sad today...

Tbh, your mom is kinda, you know, right about it. I mean, net is not as safe as we think it is. All I can tell you is that don't talk about her in front of your mom and don't give your friend any personal details about you.

I am sorry for what you are going through. I feel that it is time for you to find new friends - true friends. Try finding friends with same interests as you. You'll have more things to talk about that way. I hope things get better with you and your friends.
