Oh man. I am in so much trouble. Like, hiding-in-my-room kind of trouble. Who knew that dyeing my hair blue would send my mom into such a rage?

So here's the story. You know how I've been having some sort of mid-teens crisis of late. I keep whining about how I'm bored and directionless. So I thought, "Hey, if I can't change the big things, I can change the little ones." Then I dyed my hair blue. I seriously never considered that my mom would even care. I mean, it's my hair. Aren't teenagers supposed to do stuff like this? It's not like I work in a bank or something.

Mom was anything but cool. She even started yelling at me in Spanish (and that's when you know you're really in trouble). She's getting her friend to come over and dye it back. This is so embarrassing. I tried to talk her into letting me keep it until Halloween, so I could integrate it into my costume (my brother laughed at me and said I should be a Smurf - I was thinking just a '70s style punk). It doesn't even matter, though, because my mom is so mad that she's saying I'll be lucky if I'm even allowed to go out for Halloween. Why is this such a big deal?!

Anyway, I'm still going to plan a non-blue-haired costume in the hopes that my mom mellows out once my hair is normal again. What are you guys going to be? I think I'm just going to throw together a Grim Reaper costume. It's not my most inspired idea ever, but I don't want to put in a huge effort in case I'm not allowed to go out. if your parents are as controlling as mine are when it comes to how you look.

Later,
Simon

    Hello Amelia! Fellow natural ginger here. Your hair is a gorgeous colour and I don't blame your parents for not wanting you to dye it. How about the dye only be temporary? It won't stay on forever, so you'll have your cool rainbow colours and still have your natural colour. I do need to warn you, though, don't dye your hair too much. It's not good for your scalp. Good luck. :)

    They know what is best for you. But if you really wanna dye your hair, you should compromise with them. Like for instance: tell them you can dye the bottom of your hair the color, and then when you get older, you could maybe dye a little more, and so on. But your parents know what's best for you, and they want you to look presentable.                       ~PCG :)

    Hello players of KidzWorld! I am Amelia, feel free to call me Payton or whatever you'd like! So, let us jump right into this! :D -=+=- I have natural ginger hair and really, REALLY strict parents. I would like to dye my hair this blue color called "Atomic Turquoise" by Maniac Panic :) However, my parents don't want me to dye my hair as they think that these colors look "trashy". Girls whom I know, have dyed hair. One of them even has piercings I want. Another has had her hair every color of the rainbow and more! So, my parents are very strict and quite... I don't even know. They won't allow me to do anything really... Does anyone have anything I can use to have my parents allow me to dye my hair? Thank you! :D <3 ~Payton

    lisp or not, i'm sure you're a nice person. i don't even know if you can get rid of this lisp- maybe practice speaking at home, try different movements with your lips or mouth, i don't know. don't let a lisp make you less confident, that doesn't change anything about you as a person. be yourself and be confident.

    Dear Dish it, Im already a grown teen but I don't think I am that easy to get along whem meeting new friends in school. And I think its because I lose my confidence cause I got some speech defect which called lisp. I often sometimes looks weird when theyre talking to me and It really affects me. What should I do? I have read and tried all the practice and therapy I read in the internet for a year but it doesnt make a change. I hope you help me
