Dear Dish-It, Should I Tell My Mom Everything?


Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".

Dear Dish-It,

My mom thinks I don't "talk to her enough." She is usually pretty cool about stuff like letting me do stuff and all that but is it wrong if I don't want to tell her every intimate detail of my life?

Dear loony_bin_victom,

There is nothing wrong with wanting to a have a little privacy when it comes to sharing your life with your mom. But it's also perfectly natural for your mom to try and stay in the loop. The key is to make your mom feel like you are willing to talk to her about what's goin' on in your life. If she asks you a question, try not to get too defensive. The last thing you want to do is make your mom think you have something to hide. Arrange to have a mother-daughter afternoon or evening once a week. If you make an effort to spend some quality time with your mom once in a while, chances are she'll lighten up about the small stuff and give you some space. 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 .

How Much Do You Share With The 'Rents?

  • I tell my parents everything.
  • I'm close with the 'rents and tell them a lot about what's going on with my life.
  • I rarely share anything with my mom or dad.
  • I can't remember the last time I even said hello to my parents.

If you really want to get rid of the romantic feelings for him, just try picturing a future with him, and also asking these questions in your head, "Is he a good guy?" "Would we last?" But maybe he's acting awkward around you, because your friend asked him to Prom, but he might rather go with you, but doesn't know how to say anything about the situation. I would suggest talking to him about it, and if he is a jerk about it, don't bother. But talk to him first, and if he has the same feelings, then talk to your friend about it. I just want to warn you, that if you do this, you and others could get their feelings hurt. Crushes are a risky, scary thing in high school. Anyway, that's what I think you should do. If you don't want to do that, then follow what your intuition tells you.
