Dear Dish-It, How Can I Make Money?

Dear Dish-It,

Hi! I am a 12 year-old girl and I am going to Chicago in July. I want to make some money for the trip, but I have a dilemma. We just moved to town and I don't know anyone I can babysit for, and my mom only pays me and my sister five cents per chore and together we have 15 chores. I also have to pay for my way there. How can I make money?

Dear AC's girlB>,

Wow! Sounds like a cool summer vacation... bummer about the money thing though. Here's what I suggest - post up some flyers advertising your babysitting services, or go door-to-door with your mom to introduce yourself to your neighbors and tell them you're available to babysit or even petsit if they need some help on the weekends. You could also get a paper route. It'll be a good way to get exercise, get to know your new neighborhood better and make some cash. And lastly, if you're experienced with a lawnmower, you could offer to cut people's lawns on your street. Good luck making cash and have a great time in Chicago!

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 .

    ​Dear Dish-It,              I have a huge crush on this really cute boy named Austin. He is so sweet and shares many character traits as me. I am super worried since next year we have our first dance and I'm worried about if he'll ask me. But, that's beyond the point. His best friends keep telling me that he is madly in love with me so I really want to talk to him. I am so worried about what will happen though. We are already great friends and I don't want to ruin what we have no. I am so confused. Please, please help! :love :mad :sad PS. Did I mention that I have a HUGE crush on him?                        Sincerely, Love-Sick and Confused Youre worried about a dance for next year? ​Anyway, just talk to him, and maybe even tell him how you feel.
