Dear Dish-It, I Have A BF But My Mom Doesn't Know


Dear Dish-It, is thinkin' about this some more, so TTYL.


Dear Dish-It,

I'm 10, about to turn 11, and I have a boyfriend named Jerry. How do I tell my mom? I think she will just say no... or should I not tell her? She thinks I'm still her baby, but I'm not. If she says no, then I'm still going to go with him.

Dear adw,

You should definitely tell your mom. What everyone always forgets is, parents were young once too. She may surprise you and not freak out. Of course, she may also not surprise you and freak out. Either way, keepin' stuff from your parents isn't a good idea. It makes you look sketchy and shady when they do find out - and they always do. If she's against the idea of you dating, ask her why - and LISTEN to the reasons. Then, tell her why you don't think you're too young to date and ask her to listen to your reasons. There may be a happy medium you can work out... like you'll only see him during school hours or you won't hang out alone with him. As for your mom thinkin' you're "still her baby," you are. You'll be "her baby" even when you're 82 years old. It's just the way moms are and you just gotta cut her some slack on that one.


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 here. But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checkin' the column cuz she's prob'ly answerin' somethin' very similar to your question while you're out doin' somethin' else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if ya've got words of wisdom you wanna share,.

    Parents - Strict or Laid-Back?

    • Laid-back - they let me do just about anything.
    • Strict - they monitor me all the time and are always on my case.
    • Somewhere in between. My parents like to know what I am up to, but aren't annoying.
    • They're always on my case cuz I'm always getting caught doing things I shouldn't.

    Your style is simply whatever you want to wear! Just wear whatever feels comfortable, or whatever you think looks good, and it is your style (: It doesn't matter if it's not entirely individual and unique, as long as it's what you feel happy wearing.

    I love both my parents equally, but I prefer to spend time with my dad. My father works abroad so I see him a lot less than my mother, but it means that when I see him it feels more special :3
