Dear Dish-It, My Brother Keeps Beating Me Up

Advice for teens about troubles with your parents.
Advice For Teens About Parents

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!

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.
