Dear Dish-It, I Have a Mustache!

Dear Dish-It,

I've started to grow underarm hair and mustache, and my mom thinks it's cute and I become really embarrassed. What do I do?

Dear PartyGirl,

I know that some of the things that happen to your bod right now can be embarrassing (like finding you have a lot of extra body hair), but the great thing about these embarrassing situations is that they are totally fixable. Moms aren't always the easiest peeps to talk to about these things, but I think if you let your mom know how you feel she will be more than willing to help you out. There are tons of options for dealing with unwanted body hair - bleaching, shaving, waxing, or even hair removal creams. Talk to your mom and you can decide together what's best for your situation. If you have an older sis, she might be able to help you out too. Just remember: we all have to deal with these things so you shouldn't let it bother you. Your mom will understand what you're going through, cuz believe it or not she was once going through puberty just like you are now! 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 have to keep sites where I have any kind of interaction with people I haven't met face to face a secret, and it gets hard sometimes because I'm on quite a few roleplay sites which obviously involve chatting/interacting with people. I trust everybody on those sites though, but try telling my mom that.     My parents have gotten a lot better since then, but they're still strict about the chat sites and all. My mom is still very strict, but not nearly as much as then. I guess it's because I've gotten older. I'll be 13 in a few days. c: ALSO. If any of you saw my other post, pretend you didn't xD For some reason I thought I'd posted the original forum post. xDD I guess that's what happens when you haven't been on a site in a couple of years, you start forgetting things.

    I know exactly how you feel.  I'm going through the same thing. The thing to know is none of it's your fault.  And you can visit your mom or your dad.  You can try to get your mind of it by hanging out with your friends at school.  I feel your pain.   And I feel bad that this kind of stuff happens in life.  But god will make everything better. :)
