Dear Dish-It, I Want to Find My 7th Heaven


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


Dear Dish-It,

My parents have been divorced since I was five, and I live with my mom, so I really miss my dad. Please give me some advice on how to deal with this! The theme song to 7th Heaven says, "When the world doesn't treat you right, to go home; it's the one place that you will find 7th Heaven." The problem I have is what home to go to - my mom's or my dad's?

Dear Walkbifaith,

Though it would be nice if everyone's life could be as happy and idealistic as the members of the Camden family, real life rarely plays out like an episode of 7th Heaven. We're not all going to grow up in a house where there are seven kids, our dad is a preacher and fresh baked cookies are waiting at the end of every bad day. Real life cannot be resolved in an hour and we can't try to compare our lives to a TV show theme song. It totally sucks that you have to go back and forth between your parent's houses but at least you have two parents who you really love. If you're unhappy with the amount of time you get to spend with either parent, sit and talk to them about it. I'm sure they'll be willing to work out a schedule so you can get as much face time with each of them as possible. Instead of worrying which house is the best, think of it as having two "7th Heavens" to go to. Because we all know that two is way better than one.


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 .

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

    When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

    You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

    Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
