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.

Well I say don't deal with your friend I mean comfort her and all but if she's doing all that I would leave her alone let her parents deal with it you guys are just kids ending your life isn't the solution and you seem like a really caring person but ####### help from the internet isn't to answer Tell her parents or let her see to see an therapist or something But don't let other people drag you down into depression

I have 3 close friends at school. Outside of school I have one. I'm soon going up to Secondary school. 2 of my friends, Kathryn and Sophie, are quite mean to me and others in the class. They call me names and push me around. I don't like it but afraid to tell them. They are also quite rude to teachers. When it's just me and Kathryn it's fine and I am wondering if it's just Sophie making an impression. I go to a small school (81 pupils) and making friends is hard for me. Please help!!
