Teen Puberty Questions

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 .

    Well you won't want to volunteer because that's unpaid.  Your profile says you're 11 which means you can't get a real job but you can babysit (you'll need first aid training for this), or you can pet sit or do yard work. Those are good jobs to have at your age.

    Maybe your overrating her personality while underrating yourself. Girls extremely like confident men so start working on your self esteem first because it stimulates interest to get to know you more especially on the romantic context and don`t forget to just be yourself so that you will know if she accept you to who you are and don`t let the "ideal boy" standard of the society bring you down. Remember that real happiness can be achieve when you are true to yourself so don`t mind what other people think of you and stop comparing yourself to the boys around her. Embrace your imperfections and wash away your insecurities and maybe she`ll like you back ;)

    Considering your age, it is normal that your parents might not accept it in case he likes you and the feeling is mutual and you must understand them. This is time when you need to focus in your studies and prepare for your future career and not for your future husband. You are still very young and trust me, you are still emotionally unprepared for this one heck of a roller coaster ride of emotions. Know the difference between loving that person and loving the feeling that you are in love. ;)

I am already back in school, I no longer have crutches thankfully. Also, i'd like to point out that they don't have social media, or at least, i'm not aware of it and I am out of school for two weeks for Christmas. Crushes are annoying lol. I have never been in a relationship either which makes things so much worst.
