Dear Dish-It, My Friend Has Really Bad B.O.


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 .

    If you're having issues on KW then you can always report, ignore/delete, and block the person! Also let the moderators/admin know you're having issues! Same goes with most other places online.  It's also a good idea to tell an adult; you don't deserve to go through this! Whether it be a parent, a friends parent, teacher, principal, counsellor, family member, police officer, any trusted adult!  Unfortunately we here cannot stop what is going on for you, but we can remind you that you can get through this and things will get better. Keep your head up, and stand up for yourself. Take care. :)
