Dear Dish-It, My Voice Is Cracking

Dish-It serves up some great advice about going through puberty.
Advice About Puberty

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


Dear Dish-It,

I'm 13 and in the 8th grade. I went on vacation and when I came back after three weeks, my voice was croaking and was squealy for about five days. I went to the doctor and he said it's because I'm changing. I know what that means, but after six days my voice was back to normal. Why is that? Two days ago it did that, but then it got deep again. But now I think that it's going to stay normal, maybe because I talked to myself and I got used to my voice so that it sounds normal. Can you please help me?

Dear Ayman,

Sounds like you're going through puberty... but you already knew that. So here's what you may not know - puberty isn't a one day thing. It can last anywhere from a couple of months to a year! When guys go through puberty, their larynx (voice box) grows larger and their vocal chords get thicker. That's why your voice starts to crack, croak, break and get squeaky. It can be pretty embarrassing when you're talking to that cute girl in class and then all of a sudden you start squealing in the middle of the convo! But don't worry too much about it cuz it's just a part of growing up and most of your pals will be going through it with you. And when it's all over, you'll be left with a nice, husky voice!


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 .

I don't really think the word would be desperate. In the situation with your uncle, I think you we're maybe being a tad bit rude. I think you're mom may have been addressing a different situation if she claimed you were being desperate. Unless, of course, you have something against your uncle and really wanted him to leave, I'm going to assume your not desperate. Holley's right though. It was a little inconsiderate to tell him those things. Maybe an apology would be nice. As for what your mom was saying, she most liking referring to a different situation or misusing the word -it can happen when your frustrated.  Hope this clears things up a bit (:

I hate my school uniform! It's black and made of really thick material and the tie makes your neck all sweaty cos it's a dark red and ugh. You're not allowed coats either, not even in winter so it sucks when it's raining.
