Dear Dish-It, My Parents Just Won't Listen!


Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dish-It gets a ton of letters from you peeps about sex and, although she's here to answer any of your questions, she thinks a lot of you need to stop worrying so much about it. You've got your whole life ahead of ya - you don't need to be rushing into sexual relationships and risking pregnancy and disease just to say you've done it. Kidzworld's received some positive feedback on this topic from one of our members, so take a look at what she's got to say!


Dear Dish-It,

I can't believe there are so many children (yes that's what you are - children,) writing that they want to have sex. Honestly, what has happened to the youth of America? I'm 14 and I'm picky about who I even have a crush on. Plus, everyone preaches "safe sex." There's no such thing! Even if you use condoms there's still a chance of getting pregnant. It's amazing that so many people think that they're old enough. Whatever happened to abstinence? For those of you who have never heard of it, abstinence is waiting until you're married to have sex. Sex is supposed to be a very sacred thing that happens between two people, and it should only happen in a marriage. I'm not trying to sound like a nun, but it's the truth. If religious reasons aren't enough, do you really want to risk your life for a little fun and games? Sounds like you need help. I'm serious. No one should "need" sex. Especially when there's a chance of disease and pregnancy. Please, do us all a favor and talk to someone - a parent, teacher or guidance counselor. At least do it for the sake of your unborn children. I'd be ashamed to have a mother only 12 years older than me.

Dear Dish-It,

I am a 14 year-old guy and I feel I can make my own decisions. I have had long hair ever since 7th grade and my dad HATES it. He makes fun of me about it and a few weeks ago, he made me cut it very short. I really don't like my new hairstyle but I have to pretend, or else my dad gets mad. I always wear a hat or a beanie or I'm walking around, constantly fixing my hair. I know hair will grow back but when it does, my dad's just gonna make me cut it. How can I convince him that I should be able to look however I want? Please help me. My hair problems are really driving me nuts.
I want long hair


Dear Dish-It,

My mom and I always argue. We argue about school, clothes, grades, my siblings, and other things. Almost every time we argue, it turns into a huge fight. Do you have any advice to help me?

    Your parents clearly hate you... Just kidding but maybe its time to talk to them and see if they understand where you are coming from.

    Okay, since I'm a girl and have helped many of my guy friends with this (even though I think they r too young for this but meh whatever), I can give you some advice.  1) Don't be mean or nice. You have to be yourself. Don't be nasty to her to get her to like you (it won't work), nor should you be Mr Nice Guy. Don't be there to carry her bag for her just yet.  2) If you want her attention, be creative. Writing a song is a good idea, but don't dedicate it to her. Just pretend you're aiming it at the general female population of your class. You can tell her that it's for her later, when she's into you. 3) Find out what she likes. Does she play instruments? Does she do sports? Does she fangirl over stuff? Does she play video games? Find out and DISCREETLY get her to know that you like it too, if you do of course. This is what worked for one of my friends: 1) Stay low until the perfect moment. If she falls over, come over and help her up, smile at her and blow her away with your charms, and then proceed to say hi and ask for her name as if you don't know her. It is creepy when a random guy knows your name and says it to you.... it just is idk. Walk away without looking back. This will make her curious for this stranger who helped her up. Do this for whatever situation. BUT JUST ONCE. DO NOT REPEAT. 2) If this happens again (she falls over etc), be sure to be really obvious that you're not going to help her up. Walk by without sparing a single glance. She will be reminded of you and wonder why didn't you help her. This is good - you want her to think of you. 3) Do something sweet for her. For example, if she likes a particular drink or cheap snack, buy it for her and walk up to her. Give it to her, but say something like "Hey _________! Here you go. I accidentally bought the wrong flavour and didn't want to throw it away. Don't worry - I didn't open it. Do you want it?" She should say yes, and ask for your name to say thank you. That's when you tell her. 4) Start to wave to her in the hallways and say hi sometimes. Don't do this too much though. Sometimes, if she waves first, ignore her. This should make her want your attention more. 5) Do something sweet again (like the song), but aim it not directly towards her (like I already said before - aim it towards girls in general). If you want some more, tell me! I hope this helped, but it might not - depends on what kind of girl she is.
