Dear Dish-It, How Do I Get My Life Back Together?

Advice for teens about friends, bullies and parents.
Advice For Teens About Bullies

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


Dear Dish-It,

My dad is driving me crazy! He's always complaining and cussing and yelling and I'm fed up! My best friend won't take me seriously and has totally ditched me! People are constantly picking on me at school (and sticking gum in my hair!) and I can't take it! Whenever I try to talk to my "friends," they blow me off and tell me to get over it. To them, something as simple as someone sticking gum into my hair becomes a hateful argument between us. My hair (I know this sounds dumb,) means a lot to me. And that's just one incident. I need serious advice on how to get my life back together!
P.S.- I feel like everyone hates me! I need a friend or someone who cares and don't suggest my 'rents cause they're half the prob!

Dear Over The Edge,

If these are the kind of peeps you are calling friends, I'd hate to hear what your enemies are like. It is definitely time for you to break away from the losers you call your pals and find some cool kids you'll feel comfy confiding in. Have you considered joining an after-school team or club at school? If that's not your style, why not take a class at your local community center on the weekends? You could learn to make candles, cook or learn to relax with yoga. At the same time, you'll meet a ton of people who you may not have ever run into otherwise. It seems clear that your friends at school aren't there for you, so why not get out there and broaden your horizons? 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 .

I'm 12, not a baby need to be protected. now i can do noting to change her invading my privacy. I rather to talk with my fd on phone.  I hate to tell you but you are still 12 and not even a teen yet. I was 13 before I was allowed to keep my own laptop in my room. I have many friends who are 13 and 14 that their parents check what they do. You are going to have to live with it until they feel you can be safe on your own.
