Teen Advice & Help

Dear Dish-It,

My friend Megan is having a sleepover on Monday night and I get homesick. But, I really don't want to go home cuz I'll be embarrassed. My friends are all cool and they don't get homesick. Plus, it's at my friend's dad's house so I have no idea what to do. If it was at her mom's, then I might be able to stay the night cuz it's only two houses down. I like my friend and I don't want to hurt her feelings, so what do I do? Please help!

Dear skinimini,

Feeling homesick (even though you're having a blast with your friends) is a perfectly natural thing. Tons of people just feel more comfy sleeping in their own bed, with their family down the hall. If you're planning on going to the sleepover just so you don't hurt your friend's feelings then you should probably just come clean. Explain to her that you just aren't up for a sleepover right now, but maybe next time. If you are genuinely eager to dish the dirt at this slumber-fest - why not arrange something with your mom (or sister) where you can give her a call up until a certain time if you want to come home. You can even let your friend know before going that you might just come over for a bit to hang out. I'm sure she'd rather have you come over for some movie watching, then not at all. Good Luck!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    Downside to Sleepovers?

    • Havin' to lug all my stuff to my friend's house.
    • Being the first one to fall asleep and gettin' my undies frozen!
    • Brushin' my teeth in the same room as my friend's creepy brother.
    • There's no downside to hanging with friends all night.

    Cyberbullying is just as serious as bullying offline. You should report them, block, and ignore. But if it's a continuous thing you should talk to an adult about it! It doesn't matter if you're on the other side of the world, there are many things law enforcement, even worldwide, can do to take steps in making sure it stops and doesn't happen to anyone else.
