Dear Dish-It: Getting Bad Grades

Dear Dish-it,

In the past few weeks I’ve been getting bad grades. Should I talk to a teacher or just forget about it?

Dear justinbieberfan21,

You should DEFINITELY talk to a teacher about your bad grades. In fact, the best way to fix these kinds of problems is to get help from someone who really knows their stuff – and who better than a teacher? He or she may offer to stay with you after school to go over the things that you’re having trouble with. If your teacher is willing to do this, use the time to pick his or her brain about what you’re doing wrong and ways that you can improve. Whatever you do, don’t let another week go by without trying your best to fix this problem – you’ll just wind up being more lost than you feel right now.

Another thing your teacher may recommend is that you join an after-school homework, study or tutoring club. Your school may very well offer something like this, and it can be really helpful. Sometimes, kids can explain difficult concepts to other kids better than adults. You can also think about aksing your mom or dad if they’d be willing to help you out with your studies in the evening at home, or if they’d be willing to get you a tutor who could help you go over and better understand the things you learn in school during the day.

Hi, I'm not really into fashion but I can tell you one thing. You can just dress normally, just the way you like! It doesn't matter whether you're a teenager or not. It's also really important to you feel comfortable in your clothes. Remember, your clothing won't define you! :D

Okay, so my hair isn't the 'best'. I have 'West Indian' Hair (it's naturally curly) and I have to use loads of products to make it nice when I'm straightening my hair. It then dries and all the softness and grease has gone ( :-( ). That's the annoying part. I would like a few nice, easy hairstyles that will look nice with my West Indian hair (that's all spiky and spidery when it's been straightened) even if it's as simple as peeling an orange! Anything would help!

I am a teenage girl, so I'm either supposed to dress colorful or just fully goth. I want to dress grunge. Basically 90's street kinda. My mom gets mad at my cause she doesn't want me dressing all black, I told her that's not what grunge is. So, I am dressing pretty grunge, but I need ideas on hair styles and makeup for this style.

Ok, so I have a Best Friend, I used to have 2, but one moved away and won't text me, and the other still "acts" like my best friend, but here is the problem. When I do stuff with other people, it offends her, when I don't reply to her text real quick, in her mind, im ignoring her. IT'S ALSO STARTING TO GET ANNOYING CAUSE SHE COPIES ME. She copied my halloween costume, i was gonna be a character off of american horror story. If i don't share my music with her, she says sharing is caring and she walks off.   Now I understand that this might be social and anxiety issues and she needs somebody to cling onto. But I'm just tired of trying. I need advice : (
