How Do I Get Rid Of This Hair?

Whether it's concerns about body image, personal hygiene or other health-related issues, we've got the info to help keep you fit and healthy. It doesn't matter if you're a boy or a girl, the Locker Room is the place to come for any probs you have with your bod. Check out what Kidzworld members have on their minds!

Finding The Right Support

I am 14 and I have pretty big boobs for a girl my age. It's really embarrassing in P.E. because, even if I wear a bra, my boobs still stick out and bounce in my school's polo top and the guys stare. What should I do?

One of the most annoying things about being a girl is dealing with breasts. If we have small boobs, we want them to be bigger. If they're too big, we desperately want them to stop drawing so much attention! First, you should look around for some full-support sports bras to wear in gym and when you are playing sports. There are a ton of bras on the market today that are actually designed to minimize how big your breasts look, as well as help to reduce bouncing. Take a look at www.Balicompany.com and www.Hanes.com for some ideas on what to buy. You could also ask for a bigger shirt to wear in P.E., which might make you feel more comfortable.

To Shave or Not to Shave

I have hairs on my belly button! Is this normal for a girl? I have a great body and I want to wear belly-baring shirts. Should I shave or wax? I get really self-conscious when I'm changing in the locker room for P.E. and am not sure how I am supposed to wear a swimsuit joeyscrush

Having hair on or around your belly button is totally normal - even for a girl. It's understandable for you to be self-conscious of the hair around your belly button but the last thing you want to do is shave your stomach. Shaving creates stubble and no one wants a prickly tummy. If you are set on getting rid of this hair, talk to your mom, older sis, or another female relative about getting your navel-area waxed. There are a ton of products that you can get at your local drug store or you can arrange to get it done by a professional esthetician.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

Goodness... I see where your mother is coming from: if you eat too much, no matter how healthy the food is, and don't work off the calories, you're going to gain weight. But she's being very obsessive and dramatic about it. There is nothing wrong with eating pizza or a cookie every now and then, and there's nothing wrong with relaxing from time to time either. As long as you aren't constantly eating junk and not burning the calories, then you do not have a problem. Eating unhealthy things every now and then does not make you fat. EATING every now and then does not make you fat. Try explaining this to her, calmly and patiently. Tell her that you don't want to be forced to do all of this exercising - being forced to exercise makes it a lot less interesting. Do not take "This is for your own good" for an answer; if you do not want to do it, it is NOT for your good. (This, of course, would be a different story if you were actually fat.) ALSO tell her that exercising too much and not satiating your cravings is JUST AS UNHEALTHY AS BEING FAT IS. If you were to not eat healthful meals and not snack every now and then, no matter how healthy or unhealthy the food is, plus exercise so frequently, you would not be healthy.  Eating is good for you, even if the food isn't. Eating too little and eating too much is not healthy. Exercise is good for you. Not exercising enough and exercising too much is not good for you. If you talking to her doesn't help, try telling another adult how you feel, and maybe they can help get it through to her. Regardless of what happens, take care of yourself. Moderate how much you eat, but don't limit yourself to less than you feel you need. Exercise, but don't do something you don't want to; working out should be fun. Good luck with everything. I'm really sorry that she makes you feel so badly about this.

I'm perfectly happy with myself. I'm around 5'6" and somewhere between 140-150 pounds, and I don't feel fat. But my mom is constantly telling me that I am, or, at least, that I'm going to be. She forces me to go to exercise classes because I don't like many sports, tries making me go on diets, but I don't want to. She tells me that if I continue the way I am, having an extra cookie once in a while and only eating cereal for breakfast, that I'll end up fat, and she makes sure to emphasize how horrible that is for a person to live with. She rolls her eyes and sighs whenever she sees me getting a snack, and just in general makes me feel awful for eating the things I like and for relaxing. I've told her that I don't want to do these things and that she makes me feel bad when she says things like that, but she swears it's for my own good and that I should never want to be fat, that it ruins people's lives. How should I deal with this?

I know I need to tell her as I don t like keeping secrets from her. I know this was a bit ago, but I truly hope that you were able to be open with your mother. If you feel as if they won't get mad at you, then chances are that your guardian will not. Honesty is the best policy, and if you feel guilt keeping a secret, then it is one you probably shouldn't be keeping.

I agree with @rainbowpoptart. You really shouldn't worry about relationships that much given your age. I promise, they're better things to worry about than boys and more secure romances occur later on in life anyways. But, given the situation, you shouldn't worry about either. The boy is unfaithful and so is your friend. If your best friend really valued your friendship, she would not have put it in a position that could end it. Don't waste your time on those who will not put you first just as you do for them; better people will come into your life and they are the ones who you should really worry about.
