Dear Dish-It: My Dad's Girlfriend Is Too Young

Dear Dish-It,

My dad's 31 and I'm 12 and he's dating an 18-year-old. She's nice but I think she's too young for him. He's constantly saying she's boring and he's gonna dump her. Then the next minute he says she's gonna move in with us. Should I tell my dad how I feel about him going out with someone six years older than me?

Dear emo chick9877,


Suddenly having a new adult in your life and your home can be really tough. It sounds like you feel uncomfortable with your dad's new girlfriend, and you probably have a lot of questions you want to ask him. I think you should ask your dad if you can speak to him alone, and let him know how you feel about the situation. Maybe he'll be able to answer some of your questions about his girlfriend and her age, and his answers might make you feel better. You'll never know until you ask.


Unfortunately, your dad is an adult and that means he's allowed to make his own choices. While you can definitely let him know how you feel about the choices that he makes, you have to understand that he may not agree with you. But the good news is, if you keep an open mind, you may be able to understand where he's coming from, and that could also help you get used to his younger girlfriend.

    Sometimes I swear but I try not to do it around my teachers, parents or adults. I get away with a little bit at home but not too much.

    I say stuff like, "Who with the what now!", "What the what!", "What the freak!" The last one might not be such a good one but hey it's not exactly cursing.

    So here is the basic idea on what has been going on in my life. 1. My grandfather from my dad's side recently died but I don't Know how to feel about it. We weren't very close and I saw him once a year so how do I exactly feel about this? 2. One of my teachers didn't come today so there was a substitute. She was very strict. A boy in my class somehow ended up outside and was hiding. I saw him so I told the substitute. When I told my grandfather from my mother's side, he said I should stay out of others' buisness and that I did the wrong thing. So did I do the right thing or not?
