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?

    Are Your Parents Too Strict?

    • Yeah! My parents won't let me do anything I want.
    • I think they could lighten up a little.
    • They're cool most of the time.
    • Are you kidding? I get to do whatever I want!

    Your style is simply whatever you want to wear! Just wear whatever feels comfortable, or whatever you think looks good, and it is your style (: It doesn't matter if it's not entirely individual and unique, as long as it's what you feel happy wearing.

    I love both my parents equally, but I prefer to spend time with my dad. My father works abroad so I see him a lot less than my mother, but it means that when I see him it feels more special :3
