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

Dear Dish-It gives great advice for teens on topics like peer pressure and talking with your parents.
Teen Peer Pressure

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.

    You really like this guy :p Hmm... my guess is that he does, in fact, like you -props to you chica! (: However, I can not be positive. From what I can see, you really have two options here (okay, I suppose there are more...): 1. You can wait. If he does like you, he'll let you know eventually. From your description it seems that he might be a little shy when it comes to such feelings.I could be wrong...- but if he truly does, he'll be able to overcome that. Note: A friend's looking at you they'll probably continue to do so after you've turned to look at them. Guys who like you often turn away or make funny faces (friends make faces as well). It  really depends on their personality.    2. Talk to him. It'd probably be hard, but  (ehhh... I'll have to continue later...)

    Punch him. I'm kidding, don't hit.  Now, I WOULD suggest talking to him, but people had alredy done that. so here's the devil way to do it. :devil 1. Eat all HIS food and yours, give him a taste of his own grape-flavored medicine. 2. Next time he's out steal back your's and your mother's speakers. 3.  Refuse to do your chores too, when your parents question it, just say if your brother doesn't have to do it, then you don't have to either. there, hope this helps. :) For more devil tips go to.
