Dear Dish-It, My Brother Keeps Beating Me Up

Dear Dish-It,

I didn't think I wanted to have a birthday party this year, or so I told my mom. She said that I couldn't have a party anyway. Now all my friends think I'm weird for not having a party. (I didn't tell them that my mom wouldn't let me.) But I AM turning 12. Got any advice?

Dear ashz91,

If the only reason you want to throw a big bash for your birthday is to impress your friends, save your time and avoid a big argument with your mom. Your sudden change of heart about having a birthday party only came when your friends said you were weird. If your mom's not too cool with you having a party, why don't you ask to have a sleepover with a couple of your closest friends? You could rent a bunch of videos and stuff yourselves full of popcorn. Or, what about going for pizza and hitting the bowling alley? You have a ton of celebrating options, so sit down with your mom and figure out how you're going to make your 12th b-day something to remember!

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 .

Do You Get Along With Your Sibs?

  • No way! We fight with each other 24/7.
  • I get along with my sibs most of the time.
  • My sibs are my best friends - we totally get along.
  • I'm an only child, so I don't have sibs to fight with.

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

To be honest, this is probably just something you have to bear. I know that sometimes relatives can be irritating, but they only visit often because they care about you and want to see you (: Unless there is a real reason you don't want them to visit - for example, if they are unkind to you - then you should just endure it.  Or you could mention it to your parents and see if they can sort it out? This is something lots of kids have to deal with, me included, and it's just part of life! You are lucky to have grandparents who care about you so much c:
