Dear Dish-It: No Money for Mother’s Day

Dear Dish-It,

I love my mom with all my heart but I have no money so I can’t get her a really nice gift for Mother’s Day. I feel really bad; what can I do?

Broke Kid

Dear BK,

Sounds like you and your mom have a wonderful relationship – I’m sure that as long as she knows that you love and support her, she won’t care whether or not you can afford to buy her a fancy present for Mother’s Day.

Fab & Free

The best gift – your love – doesn’t cost anything. There are lots of other ways to show your mom how much you care without having to spend a cent:

  • Make dinner for her one day – or even just a sweet treat for dessert!
  • Offer to babysit your little brother or sister so that she can have the afternoon off.
  • Make her a card that tells her how much you love and appreciate her.
  • Cook breakfast in bed and surprise her with it on Mother’s Day.
  • Clean your room – or even the whole house – without waiting for her to ask you to do it.
  • Make a date to have a stay-at-home movie night – just you and her!

Have Your Say

Got any good advice for Broke Kid? Leave your comment below!

Thanks,

Dear Dish it

Its almost all about online safety. My parents don't check my online activities anymore but they always did and that was to make sure I was not online when I was supposed to be sleeping and that I was safe. There ARE unsafe people talking to kids everywhere online, even on sites like this one. It took my parents three years of me being online before they trusted that I was able to be safe on my own.

You don't have to be forced to fall in love with someone if you don't want to. Let love come in its own time.And to keep away from any problems with her if she may become mean, try just forgetting about what happened and treat her like a normal person you know, and try to avoid any arguments. If she becomes mean, maybe just walk away for a bit. And if she is still being mean, maybe confront her asking what you have ever done to make her this way towards you. If you have done nothing, then she will have no reason to be mad at you so its not your problem she is being mean so you don't have to be stressed about it.I hope this helps! :) Thanks for the advice. This takes a burden off of my head. "Bloody Wings" wrote:ignore her be the cool kind of guy dont talk to her even if she comes and talk with you.well thats my opinion Thanks for the advice. Now I know the appropriate reaction. "Dear Dish-It" wrote: Hi there! My most important advice would be to be yourself! live your life! do the things you want to do. If you've moved past what happened with your feelings for one another, just go and enjoy your time. If things are weird, it'll be because of her, not you. Stay positive and calm and I'm sure you'll have fun!   Hope you have a good time! Thanks for helping me out Dish-It. You did not only help me out, but also wished me well. You are more like a care-taker, and you made me feel good. Thank you. Moderators can now lock the topic please.
