Dear Dish-It, I Don't Like Being Called Rich

Dear Dish-It,

This may sound crazy, but I don't like being called rich! I am rich, but if someone asks how do they describe me, they say rich. Sometimes I don't think I'm rich, but all the other kids do! Sometimes I even think of myself as spoiled... help me!!!!!!!!!

Dear hollywood111996,

I don't think they mean anything bad when they call you rich. They're just callin' you rich cuz you're the rich kid. It's like how you would call the school basketball star a jock... cuz he is. It's cool to be able to afford the finer things in life, but if you're acting like a spoiled brat, then you're not gonna be left with many - or any - friends. The best way to stop being a spoiled brat is to just stop being one. Don't throw your wealth in other kids' faces or brag about how much money you have cuz that's just not cool. Instead, why don't you show your pals how generous you are by sharing your wealth? You could treat your friends to an ice cream sundae or take 'em to watch Blades of Glory, which is hilarious! If your parents buy you a new outfit every week, you could swap clothes with friends once in awhile. If you get a brand new bike, let the other kids take it for a spin around the neighborhood. Start changing your attitude and soon, everyone will stop buggin' you cuz they'll realize you're a regular kid who just happens to have a few more dollars in your pocket.


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 .

    Next time she tells you, see if you can find any evidence that she did, bruise etc.  even if you find nothing that doesn't mean she hasn't. But she or you should tell an adult, or someone you can trust that is older.

I need help in school but no matter how the teachers word things i cant get it. How do I make my mom listen to me and take me to the doctor? Its been getting worst too. I have had problems remembering what we did the day before is certain classes. HELP ME!  At first, I thought it sounded like ADD, but it wouldn't effect your memory like it is. If not, catch your mom while she's not rushing around. Maybe before she goes to bed or while she's making dinner. Maybe even while she's sitting down or send her a text for her to see when she can. I wish the best of luck with the stress! It most likely doesn't help with the APD; stress can add to just about any condition!
