Dear Dish-it: I Want To Grow Up

I'm a young teen, just finishing puberty, but I really want to be an adult. No one will hire someone my age, so I can't get an after school job. My parents buy a lot of junk food; I want to be able to go to the store on my own and pick out a better diet, but I can't do that either. I also want to move out and get my own place. Is there something wrong with me? Back to Article

Dear Dish-It in the forums

I know how you feel, except I have two sisters, 6 and 7. I know this sounds weird but, it works with my sisters. When you get the time to talk to your brother you should tell him that it bothers you. If that doesn't work, either tell your parents before he lies again and explain that he wants to get you in trouble or tell your brother you will say lies about things he does if he continues to do that with you. My sisters still tell on me about little things like that but, if I remind them that I will tell on them they will stop. I hope everything will be okay and my advice helped a little.

I've got a question: How does one get the qualifications one needs in order to get jobs? Like, I just don't get it. Do you like, get the qualifications sent to you to show that you're qualified? It just doesn't make sense to me. Sorry! The best thing to do when trying to get a partner online is to just be yourself. Pretty much, the very same you would do in a real life situation. I'm not very good with relationship advice though, most of my methods would probably more for boys than girls...

You should ignore her and/ or tell your parents.

My brother is 5 years old and he constantly tells lies about me, and my parents believe him. Like this morning, he told me off for using a butter knife to cut toast. Small things like that are what drive me crazy. Any advice to at least ignore him? I've told my parents but they don't believe me. They always say that he doesn't know better, or that I never said before.
