Dear Dish-It, My Brother Keeps Beating Me Up (pg.2)

Dear Dish-It,

My brother is five years older than I am and he's using physical violence. I've told my mom a million times but she is always saying to keep out of his way. I've got loads of aches and pains from him. What should I do?

Dear hippychick,

Even though your mom hasn't been too helpful with this situation, you need to try and talk to her again. Arrange to talk with both your mom and brother at the same time, so you can let both of them know that you're really getting hurt and you want it to stop. Hopefully they'll realize that things have gotten out of control and will work to fix things. If for some reason your mom and brother aren't responsive to your concerns, you need to talk to another trusted adult - maybe an aunt, a teacher/school counselor, or friend's parent. It can be totally confidential, or you can probably arrange to have a meeting with your mom and your school counselor to talk about your troubles. Sometimes having an impartial person in on your conversation can really help. Good Luck!


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 .

Maybe, sweep/mop floors, clean tables, and maybe (if you have one) babysit a sibiling or dog/cat. If you are a person (like me) who likes to spend thair money as soon as you get it, take a coco box and glue the top on. Then cut a slip on the top ( 4 inches long and 1 centimeter wide). You can save coins and dollars in it till it is full and maybe you will have 40 dollars. You never know. Fun Fact: No matter how yummy hershey's chocolate is, don't buy it! They use slaves! (they got sued in 2012 for useing slaves)  I also heard Hershey uses bugs 0.o

ATTENTION PLZ! It's clinically proven that lipsticks make your lips black and I have no wish to make my natural lips black so I would prefer Eyeshadow and instead of lipsticks, I would rather apply my pink jelly lipgloss!  :)
