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?
PartyGirl


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 .

    Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends

Behaviour like that is not acceptable in the slightest. ​Teacher said to wait for the Bus Driver and the counselor, she just talks to me and doesn't tell The Princible
