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 .

    You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

    For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

    Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends
