Dear Dish-It, My Parents Won't Let Me Wear Make-Up!


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


Dear Dish-It,

Ok, I'm almost thirteen and everyone else at my school is allowed to wear make-up but me. The only thing I'm allowed to wear is lip gloss and sparkles, and I give my parents credit for that. But I'm not even really into putting that much make-up on anyway. I was thinking maybe a bit of eyeshadow or lip liner cuz I'm more natural. Do you think my parents are over-protective?

Dear greeneyes,

It's always hard when you're the only one in the crowd that's doing something differently - especially when it's your 'rents that are holding you back from doing your thing. But, whether it's wearing make-up, wearing a certain namebrand or even lighting up that first cigarette, it's not always best to follow the leader. Yeah, I know that wearing a bit of eyeshadow is totally different than smoking but the point is that your 'rents are just looking out for you. Parents sometimes have a hard time letting their kids grow-up so what you need to do is just sit down and have a chat with them. Let them know that you aren't really interested in wearing very much make-up anyways and you would like to be able to wear a bit of eyeshadow once in a while. Try and work on a compromise that will suit both you and your mom and dad. Maybe suggest that you can wear a bit more make-up once or twice a week and you can see how that works. Hang in there and be patient cuz you are going to have a ton of time to glam it up in the future!


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 .

    Are Your 'Rents Overprotective?

    • Yeah! My 'rents won't let me do anything.
    • Not really. They're pretty cool.
    • Not at all - my parents let me do whatever I want.
    • It depends on the situation.

    I have a really good friend, but she keeps humiliating me! First of all, she asked me something embarrassing, and I think some people heard... Secondly she told a few guys I liked them, and I wanted to be their friend..... She`s done way more, but I don`t want to get into details. How do I tell her to stop, without her getting angry, or acting like I`m wrong?

    There is this guy at my school know my best friend likes, the problem is I like him as well and I think he may have been flirting with me. My friend says its okay but I don't think she's being honest. He's the first guy that I've liked that actually notices me. I like him but I don't want to lose my best friend. What do I do?
