Dear Dish-It, My Mom's Having a New Baby


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


Dear Dish-It,

My mom's having a baby and I've been stressed ever since she got remarried. Then my aunt died and it really hurt me. Please help!

Dear abby,

It sounds like you've had a lot of big things to deal with recently, so it's understandable that you would be stressed out. To lose a loved one at the same time as your mom is beginning a new life, it must feel like your life is being turned upside down. Add a new baby to that equation and you've got some serious chaos. While this is definitely a tough situation, it's not one that is completely hopeless. You are probably feeling a little neglected by your mom who is focusing most of her attention on her new marriage and the soon-to-be new child.


One way for you and your mom to bond is for you to get involved with some of the baby stuff. You're probably not super excited to suddenly have a new sibling on the way, but the more you get involved, the easier it will be on you and your parents. It's also a good idea to try and schedule some time with just you and your mom once and awhile. Whether it's shopping, a trip to the movies or just lunch every once and awhile, it's important that you and your mom make time for one another, especially now that there's a new baby on the way. You need to tell your mom how all of these changes have made you feel, cuz she may not realize how disrupting this has been on you. You should also think about all the good things that will come out of having a sibling. There are tons of fun things you can teach and share with him or her like how to put on make-up or how to catch a baseball. Assembling some sort of scrapbook for the baby to look at when they are older is also a cool way of bonding and it's a good creative outlet. Hope this has helped - 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 .

    You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

    Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)

    Don't go out of your way to talk about it. A lot of people are off put by people who talk about their intelligence a lot. If it comes up in a conversation, you can talk about it, but you probably won't need to tell them. Usually with people who are genuinely intelligent, they don't need to talk about their intelligence, it's obvious to everyone around you, and therefore people who are not as intelligent might feel like you're rubbing it in.

    Maybe you should wait until you feel a little bit more comfy talking to them, and then tell them!  :D
