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.

There's an easy way to erase that "bully" label you're giving these people. Would you like to hear it? Rhetorical question. Words only hurt if you let them. I understand how harmful negative comments can be, but you need to try your absolute best to ignore them. The main goal bullies have is to bring you down; they want to see you get upset. Shrug it off. A tweet from the lovely Suzy Berhow states "When some is nasty or treats you poorly. It says nothing about you, but a lot about them". That's a quote everyone should live by. Just keep your head up. ♥♥ Even if your friend doesn't go to that school with you, don't worry. I'm sure she'll still be there to give emotional support when needed. "skylar245" wrote:I barely had any friends at my old school because I was too "nerdy"! I'm scared that no one will like me because I ruined everything at my old school! please someone send advice! New school = Clean slate If you don't like things that took place at your old school, congratulations- you're going to be in an environment with different people who, likely, act a different way. The absolute best way to make new friends is to be yourself. Don't act like someone you're not just to please people. Who cares if you're "too nerdy"? At least you're not fake. And remember - even if you can't make new friends, you always have the ones that are already there for you- including your internet pals. They'll all have your back. Good luck. x

    Socialize. Or drop your pencil in class next to someone, they will pick it up and you can say "Thanks, Hey, aren't you the kid from ____? I'm ___, nice to meet you!" And if all else fails {which it WONT!!} you always have us to escape reality. But still, good luck! I have a feeling you won't need it :)

    I know it can be quite embarrassing sometimes when you want to invite your friends on this site. But just give it a try. Tell them about the cool features we get and tell how fun you have and stuff. I am sure if they really take your opinion seriously, they won't bother about the name 'kidzworld'. In my school, everybody think that kidzworld is a cool site and stuff.  :)
