Dear Dish-It, Kidzworld Member Feedback
Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".
Dish-It has given out a lot of advice lately - and she's received a lot of advice too. Here's what some Kidzworld members had to say on hot topics like, sex, eating disorders and suicide.
Teenagers Having Sex:
think the topic of teens having sex is ridiculous. Girls as young as 12 are laying it all on the line for a few minutes of pleasure! I was in science class watching a sex-ed movie and there was this 14 year-old girl who was pregnant. That means she was 13 when she had sex! She continued to speak on how she can't go to school or get a good education to get a proper job. For me, that's a wake-up call! I don't know about the other girls in our world and how they view sex, but I've taken a vow of celibacy until I'm married!

You can have sex when you are married because you are together for life and it's more safe if you wait 'til you're married. If you both wait, it will help prevent you from getting STDs. That's the correct way to do it. That's also the Christian way to do it. That's what I think.

A few years ago, my very best friend became anorexic. It was the year we started junior high and she was absolutly obsessed with this one particular guy - that's how it started. She decided that to get him to notice her, she would go on a harmless diet to lose a few pounds (might I add that she was not the tiniest bit overweight to begin with.) Well, she succeeded and lost about eight pounds and she looked great! But, it wasn't enough. She began to starve herself without telling anyone. I noticed that during almost every lunch period she would say that she wasn't hungry, and would refuse to eat a bite. I had a strong suspicion, so I confronted her. I told her that I would tell her parents if she continued her pattern. She started eating again at lunch, but later I learned that she would make herself throw up before school was out.
In the weeks that followed, she endlessly complained of headaches and being cold. One day, right in the middle of a pep rally, she fainted. She's a cheerleader, so it was in front of the whole school! Her body couldn't handle all the jumping. She ended up in the hospital that day. After that, she was always going to counselors or rehab programs. It took her an entire year to regain health. Now the doctors say she could have died if she continued for two more weeks. All I can say now is that I love her and I'm soooo proud of her for stickin' to all those programs she went through!

Whatever you do, people - suicide isn't worth it! Listen to me because your family and friends will be very upset, and you're not doing yourself any favors. If you're depressed try and make the most out of life and try and make everything right. You're at a young age, when you're older you will be able to deal with these things. At the moment, everything is just floating around you and you want to make it stop. Suicide isn't the answer - just hang in there until you grow up and can maybe make things better.
