Dear Dish-It, I Found My Brother's Cigarettes

Dish-It helps with family relationship problems, peer pressure and other teen issues.

Dear Dish-It,

I saw some cigarettes in my older bro's car and I don't know if he's smoking them and I don't know how to tell my parents or if I should tell them.
to tell or not to tell


Dear to tell or not to tell,

Okay, so your discovery puts you in a bit of an awkward situation - it's understandable that you don't want your bro to smoke but unfortunately it's not really up to you to decide. No one likes to be ratted out, especially by their own sister. If you are concerned about whether your brother is smoking or not, you should probably go and talk to him. Tell him what you saw, and let him know that it makes you uncomfortable to have to keep that secret from your parents. Although it's natural to look up to an older sibling, it's also important to remember that nobody's perfect and we all make mistakes. So, instead of running to your parents and stirring up trouble, why not sit down and chat with your brother.

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 here. But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checkin' the column cuz she's prob'ly answerin' somethin' very similar to your question while you're out doin' somethin' else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if ya've got words of wisdom you wanna share, We'll dish 'em up, too.
