Dear Dish-It, My Parents Are Forcing Me to Play Piano


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


Dear Dish-It,

I have this thing where I hate playing the piano. It drives me nuts just lookin' at it! On the other hand, I love ice skating! It is my life. My 'rents force me to play the piano and they say if I complain about it in any way, they'll make me quit skating AND piano. I told them I should be able to make my own decisions on what to do. They just won't listen. I have had a billion arguments based on piano - I have talked to my 'rents about how I feel but they won't listen! I have a piano test in May and my mom says I can quit if I want then (if I pass,) but it's getting harder to deal with it without complaining. Please help!

Dear icesk8er4eva,

It might seem like you're stuck between a rock and a hard place but it sounds to me that you're just not willing to compromise. Obviously, the 'rents really want you to stick with your piano lessons but have decided to let you off the hook if you put in the time now and make it through this next test. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me. It might seem like torture to have to sit in front of that piano for another minute but you are going to have to make compromises throughout your whole life, so you may as well start now. This way the 'rents are happy and you get to continue on with your ice skating. Just bite the bullet and put some extra time into the piano so you can actually pass that test!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    I understand and agree as well. I was worried my friends would think of me differently when I first started out on this and I waited for almost a year before showing it to them. They surprisingly thought it was cool because it was like a "beginner" social media.

    Dear dish it, my friend first met eachother on the first day of kindergarten we sat next to one another and we became close. we were BFF's throughout 1st to 2nd grades. then, the second grade teacher realized there were alot of kids in the class. and same w the 3rd grade teacher. so, we had to have a split class. my friend was in the split. I was not. It all seemed like the teachers were doing somthing... weired. all the girls (well, almost there were only 6 girls on one half) were in the split. and all the boys were in regular . AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE WAS WEIRED! :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( all the boy BFF's and the girl BFF's were SPLIT. me and my friend,kids named Nia & Georgia, Isaac& Ethan, and more. it was so sad for all of us.2 months later, I got homschooled. 2 years later im back in public with my 4th grade self. everything had changed. a bunch of people were obsessed w\ a girl my age named kassidy. im neighbors w\ kassidy and she is REALLY cool and nice. but the whole I  [s:sm3/1jw1] kassidy crew got mean. if I asked them to play they would say. "If Kassidy is playing I will" or I would want to be parteners with kassidy on something and they would freak out. anyway jasmine NEVER invited my to anything, and I am trying to be nice to her ( ice cream money, homework help, comfort when sad, ect.) And not to mention I invited her to 3 things!!! on the bright side she came to 2 :thumbsup :thumbsup she also embarassed me by saying that she was moving I freaked out  because I cared about her and I would cry all the time. I even held onto her and said sadly, "PLEASE DON'T GO!!  :sad :sad . later i found out that she was not moving, she was going to CA for a vacation. even the teacher was in on it!! :mad :mad anyways, my parents told me that i should just let go of her. But i am not ready. HELP??? :e :e :e :e :e

    When I was a child I wanted glasses SOO bad, cuz I wanted to copy my mom and sister. And also, I thought they looked cool. I wear glasses now. I have had them for 2 years and honestly I don't mind them. Although, this year I am gonna pry get contacts for swimming better and stuff like that. But if you don't need glasses I wouldn't recommend wearing them. They're not bad, but trust me after a while you will pry not like them as much. But hey, that's my opinion. If you want to do it I'm not gonna stop you. Do what makes you happy in the long run. And tell your friends that they are non prescription if you don't need them, but still get some.
