Dear Dish-It: Rejected

Dear Dish-It,

I sent you two questions but they were never answered. I feel rejected.

Confused & Worried

Dear CW,

I’m really sorry that I didn’t answer your questions before now. The thing is, I get hundreds of emails from Kidzworld Members just like you each and every day, and it’s pretty much impossible for me to answer every single one of them! Here’s some more info about me – and the many other places on Kidzworld where you can go to have your questions answered!

Busy Bee

Like I said, I literally get hundreds of questions from kids each and every day! Can you imagine how much time it would take to answer them all? Basically, it’s impossible, even though I’d like to! That’s why, on the main Dish-It Page, we say: “Dish-It gets a load of letters every day so it may take a while to reply to yours. Or, if your question is one that she's already answered, search the Dish-It Categories on the right side of this page for her advice!”

More Advice

You can find all of my advice listed under seven categories on the right-hand side of this page:

Choose the one that best fits your question by clicking on it. You’ll be taken to an archives page that lists all of the questions I’ve already answered that fall under that category. Scroll down until you find a question that’s similar to yours, click on the “Read More” button and check out my advice! If your question is slightly different, feel free to ask other Kidzworld Members to help you out by adding a comment below my advice. Check back often to see what other kids think you should do!

Kidzworld Boards

Your other option is to post your question on our Boards. This is a great place to get advice from other kids who are going through or have gone through a situation similar to yours. Just click on “Boards” in the main menu, scroll down until you find the “Dear Dish-It” category, and click on the right topic for your question. Then post your question and watch as the advice starts pouring in!

Cheating - Is It Cool Or Cruel?

  • As long as you don't get caught, it's cool.
  • Totally not cool.
  • It's not that big of a deal.
  • I think it depends on the situation.

@rainbowpoptart  When I originally talked to my father, I was given the opportunity of good timing to bring it up. Luckily, there was no anger like I was partially expecting and I remained calm, which I definitely wasn't expecting. My fathers main concern was just worry and having seen other teens run away from something later getting themselves in trouble. He even brought up how he had run off at 18 and joined the Air Force, which I already knew. But, with this round, there is no perfect time to bring it up and he's always busy or we're having to do something so it's just very frustrating to find at least alright timing to bring it up, if that makes sense.

My advice on this may not be the best because I haven't personally dealt with this yet, but... Parents, or guardians, get used to having their children around. You're [usually] with them for 18 years, which is a long time, so of course they - or in this case, your father - is going to feel like he's lost something very dear to him once you move out. To me it seems like he does truly understand that you're growing up. He just doesn't want it to happen. He knows that you're leaving soon - he just doesn't want it to be soon. Parents/guardians who are close to the children usually feel that way. If you're really so concerned, talk to him about it again, in a similar way you have done already. Or perhaps just a "Wow, my birthday is just around the corner". Once you do move out, visit him as frequently as you're able to and feel like. I'm sure he'll appreciate it, and it'll help you maintain a close relationship with him.

Usually I wouldn't come here for advice, but I am really needing it. To sum it up, my birthday is in 21 days. Not only will I be leaving KW, but home as well. My mother has made it to where I have had plans to leave since I was around 11 or 12; so about 7 to 8 years. I won't get into everything, but we'll just say that my mother and I do not have a good relationship at all. My father on the other hand, I am very attached too and always scared of upsetting him. Things are not always very good between us at times, but we rarely fight. When we do, it is always bad nor ends well. So, having plans to move out are very scary to me and causes me plenty of anxiety that fights are going to break out when I have my help to get my belongings out.   For the record, I have talked to my father about leaving, why I want too, etc. But, more in the sense of that I want too, not that I am. Which, in a way, my parents understand I'm moving out as well as already pretty much know where I'm going without my mention. But, I don't think they, my father especially, understands how soon that is despite my saying of I want too when I'm 18 or when I say, "Soon." It doesn't help that my father told another that his "little girl is growing up" on him and that he is scared of the day I go because he will be alone. Which makes me feel guilty despite the fact I won't even be that far away. How should I talk to him once more and go about this or even when? I really want him to understand that I have thought everything through and that I will be in safe hands.
