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

Dish-It serves up some hot advice for teens about talking with their parents about their lives.
Advice For Teens About Parents

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.
