Advice for Teens

Dear Dish-It,

I'm 14 and my parents told me tonight that they are separating. My mom gave my dad until the weekend to move out. I really need to talk to someone.

Dear havenskie,

Wow. I feel for ya, and I am sure lots of our members do too! There are, unfortunately, a lot of teens going through this exact problem. There are also a lot of teens who have made it through a divorce already. So, it may not be a comfort, but you aren't alone. Do you have any friends with divorced parents? Pick their brains on how they felt when it happened and what they feel now. Here are some sites that may help you out too.


Helpful Sites that Deal with Divorce

  • www.kidsturn.org has the answers to some questions you might have.
  • www.teenshealth.org has some first-hand stories of peeps just like you who have gone through a divorce.

  • Also, don't be afraid to talk with your parents. If you have any questions or fears about all the stuff going down, tell them. You also need to remember that you didn't do anything to cause their split and you can't do anything to change their minds, either. Your 'rents still love ya the same as they did before.


    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 .

    The best thing to do is to be simple and direct in a nice and tactful way. You can start by saying, "I need to talk to you. I know you really believe we have a friendship, but I don't feel comfortable with you on that level yet. This doesn't mean we will never talk again, we can be nice to each other, just that we aren't friends like you think we are." Try to be as nice as possible!!!!
