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 .

    This would be quite odd behaviour, especially if this is the first time he's done it. You should talk to someone, like your mom? Or report it to a child safety website?

    Hi so many of you know me, because I'm mostly trying to help others, but I just need help. I'll try to explain best I can. Okay, yestrday I came home from work, and went over to my neighbors. I wasn't in my room long enough for a minute until my dad came busting in, extemely mad, and um, #####. Not even explaining himself, he just went on a rampage and threw away a lot of my stuff, while I was in the shower. I've never seen his anger like this, not to me at least. And, I just don't know what to do, because I hate to admt it but I'm scared... So.. any suggestions? thanks.

    Cyberbullying is just as serious as bullying offline. You should report them, block, and ignore. But if it's a continuous thing you should talk to an adult about it! It doesn't matter if you're on the other side of the world, there are many things law enforcement, even worldwide, can do to take steps in making sure it stops and doesn't happen to anyone else.
