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.

She is 15 so she is older than me and thinks she is the boss of me and sometimes she pulls my hair or hits me. Does anyone else have annoying siblings? Well I am the same as well. Just ingore her and when she is mean to you don't fight back go tell your mum or dad.

You never really know how they feel or why they act the way they do. I am totally with Kirsten and just like her there is no one that I particularly hate or anything and f they do something that you hate there may be a reason behind it and we can't judge them on that :3
