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 .

Do You Get Along With Your Siblings?

  • All the time - we're best friends.
  • Most of the time, but they annoy me sometimes.
  • Never - we're always fighting!
  • I don't have siblings.

No, never. Except for this once time, I took pictures of myself in different coffins so I could ask my friends which one looked best on me... not sure that's the same thing though.

Do you have issues at school with dress code? Well, rules are rules but outside of school express yourself and whatever you feel works, wear it. If high heels and earrings are your thing then go for it. If crop tops and butt shorts describe your personality than let it be known. Guys judge and so do some Ladies but express "You!" Be yourself and don't let anyone else tell you who you are or who you have to be. I can't express to all of you how much fashion and popularity have come together these days, clothing lines have gone so far up that the personality of a person can be known by what they're wearing.
