Advice About Body Odor

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


Dear Dish-It,

There's a person in my year and she's recently developed really bad B.O. I really wanna know how to tell her without hurting her feelings. Please help!

Dear Jerbarcka2002,

Are you a good friend or just in the same class? I'm guessin' you're not close friends, but that doesn't matter. I think it's really nice of you to think about how to approach her. You don't want to hurt her feelings, but you need to be honest so she can deal with it. So here's what you wanna do - arrange to meet with her after school, but be sure to be alone. If anyone knows you're talking to her about her body odor and she finds out, she'll totally think you're making fun of her. Not only will you hurt her feelings, but you could end up with an enemy - and let's face it, people can hold a grudge. So keep it private, keep it honest, keep it kind and keep it brief. Tell her you want to let her know as a friend (even if you're not tight) that her body odor is getting a little out of hand and that you're around if she needs someone to talk to about how to combat it. You can also tell her she can check out helful tips on personal hygiene here at Kidzworld! Lastly, allow her a quick and comfortable escape... cuz this is going to be embarrassing for her no matter what. 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 .

    I think we all go through it,  I am right now. Keep your chin up, smile on, and remember that to be mean these girls have to sink pretty low, and if they are bullying you, YOU ARE ABOVE THEM!!!!! Keep your friends close, never forget to be who you are (as cheesy as it sounds, thats what I did and now I am really happy with loads of friends. I also told a teacher, she sorted it all out pretty quick to.) . Last thing-tell a teacher. I did, and she talked to the mean girl. Now everyone knows I'm not afraid to do it, either. Bad times will pass, and good ones will come. Look after yourself. Xx. *virtual hugs*

    Sure, I wear them a lot.  As long as you're not wearing the really tight kind, which should go with a dress or skirt or something, it's totally cool.
