Dear Dish-it is Back and Ready to Help

Mar 07, 2017

Kidzworld is excited to announce the re-launch of our Dear Dish-It Advice section! We sincerely apologize to anyone who wrote in to us in the past six months. We have not forgotten about your questions and will be getting in touch with you through the forums if we do not post an article on your question.  

For other questions, we will feature a weekly article, which will be posted every Tuesday. Think of it as “let’s talk about it Tuesday” because on this day we will talk about problems, issues and frustrations, which are affecting you and try to provide helpful facts, suggestions and solutions, which may help you cope better with your problem.

Some articles will feature more than one question, particularly if there is a theme surrounding those questions. We want to formally address as many concerns as we can. We know that it is not easy to open up, and we appreciate you sharing with us. We never want you to feel like you reached out and were not addressed.

If you would not like your Kidzworld name mentioned in the article, simply state in your response that you would like to be referred to as “anonymous” and we will not reveal your identity.

Kidzworld is here to help, and our Dish-It section is designed for you. Express yourself freely and let us know what’s bothering you, what you want to know more about it, or ask us how you can better help a friend or family member. If we like your idea, we may post an article about it in a different section. We truly want to help you to figure out the things in your life that are bothering you. We know sometimes it’s not always easy to talk about matters with the people in our lives, and Dish- It can be a great alternative towards seeking advice.

Remember, it’s only advice and in the end it is up to you! You always have to do what feels right for you. We appreciate your feedback and understanding, and hope that you will write in as we re-kick-off the Dear Dish-It section!

Goodness... I see where your mother is coming from: if you eat too much, no matter how healthy the food is, and don't work off the calories, you're going to gain weight. But she's being very obsessive and dramatic about it. There is nothing wrong with eating pizza or a cookie every now and then, and there's nothing wrong with relaxing from time to time either. As long as you aren't constantly eating junk and not burning the calories, then you do not have a problem. Eating unhealthy things every now and then does not make you fat. EATING every now and then does not make you fat. Try explaining this to her, calmly and patiently. Tell her that you don't want to be forced to do all of this exercising - being forced to exercise makes it a lot less interesting. Do not take "This is for your own good" for an answer; if you do not want to do it, it is NOT for your good. (This, of course, would be a different story if you were actually fat.) ALSO tell her that exercising too much and not satiating your cravings is JUST AS UNHEALTHY AS BEING FAT IS. If you were to not eat healthful meals and not snack every now and then, no matter how healthy or unhealthy the food is, plus exercise so frequently, you would not be healthy.  Eating is good for you, even if the food isn't. Eating too little and eating too much is not healthy. Exercise is good for you. Not exercising enough and exercising too much is not good for you. If you talking to her doesn't help, try telling another adult how you feel, and maybe they can help get it through to her. Regardless of what happens, take care of yourself. Moderate how much you eat, but don't limit yourself to less than you feel you need. Exercise, but don't do something you don't want to; working out should be fun. Good luck with everything. I'm really sorry that she makes you feel so badly about this.

I'm perfectly happy with myself. I'm around 5'6" and somewhere between 140-150 pounds, and I don't feel fat. But my mom is constantly telling me that I am, or, at least, that I'm going to be. She forces me to go to exercise classes because I don't like many sports, tries making me go on diets, but I don't want to. She tells me that if I continue the way I am, having an extra cookie once in a while and only eating cereal for breakfast, that I'll end up fat, and she makes sure to emphasize how horrible that is for a person to live with. She rolls her eyes and sighs whenever she sees me getting a snack, and just in general makes me feel awful for eating the things I like and for relaxing. I've told her that I don't want to do these things and that she makes me feel bad when she says things like that, but she swears it's for my own good and that I should never want to be fat, that it ruins people's lives. How should I deal with this?

I know I need to tell her as I don t like keeping secrets from her. I know this was a bit ago, but I truly hope that you were able to be open with your mother. If you feel as if they won't get mad at you, then chances are that your guardian will not. Honesty is the best policy, and if you feel guilt keeping a secret, then it is one you probably shouldn't be keeping.

I agree with @rainbowpoptart. You really shouldn't worry about relationships that much given your age. I promise, they're better things to worry about than boys and more secure romances occur later on in life anyways. But, given the situation, you shouldn't worry about either. The boy is unfaithful and so is your friend. If your best friend really valued your friendship, she would not have put it in a position that could end it. Don't waste your time on those who will not put you first just as you do for them; better people will come into your life and they are the ones who you should really worry about.
