The Big Parental Split

Maybe it would be a stretch to say girls’ lives return to normal after divorce, but usually things do, well, a new sort of normal...

Mod mod mod! So my mom and my step dad are getting a divorce. My parents split before I was born and I have my dad in my life but I still felt rejected when he wouldn't call so I want to protect my siblings from that as much as I can how do I do that. They told my siblings that they would split the week up and I'm worried about my sister because she thinks that I'll be going to her dads too so how do I explain that to her that I'm not.(I have a 11year old sis and 5year old brother)
Another thing my mom wants to get an apartment and my SD a house but that means that it'll be in a smaller living environment so I how do I help my mom out. What should I do when it's just me and my mom when sibs are gone because this will probly be hard. What should I do to get everyone back up when it's over. (they informed us yesterday I'm not sure how long it will take I just want to be prepared) thank mod

I'm so sorry, babe.  Divorce is one tricky beast.

However, most of these questions shouldn't yours to handle.  Have a talk with your mom and stepdad about making it clear to your siblings that you won't be going with them and that they won't skimp on the attention.  Tell them how hard it was for you to deal with when you were younger and that you want to make sure they don't get hit as hard by it.

As far as helping your mom, you can start by making it easier for her to focus on work and relax afterward.  Make sure that you stay on top of your chores, and maybe offer to help clean or make dinner every now and then.

It's hard but you can get through it!

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD I'm an awful girlfriend. Whenever I'm around anyone, I'm this big flirt. I NEVER stop flirting. I hate it because my friend's new friend Alex, I think he likes me. He asked me to a midnight movie thing, but he doesn't know I have a boyfriend, so now I don't know if I should tell him that I have a boyfriend, or just go to the movies and take my chances of him "putting the moves on me". What should I do?



Hey chickadee! If you have a boyfriend, then I'd take a rain check on the movie with Alex, unless it's with a big group of friends. Just think, would you get jealous or mad if your bf went on a movie date with another girl?

2 of my friends like the same guy and one of them is my BFF. my BFF is always complaining about how depressed she is bacause of our friend liking the same guy. it makes me really angry when she complains about stuff like that because her life is so perfect and she dosent even appreciate it. my parents split when i was 7 hers are still together, my dad and i fight all the time and she gets nothing but love from her father, i am hit and punched and she was slapped on the hand once when she was little because she bit someone. i want her to see how great her life is but i dont want her mad at me. can you help me please??? thanks!!!


Hey girl, just tell her once that she is super-lucky and that while she may dislike her life at some times, she could have it worse.

I'm sorry this is kinda long but it's the only way i can explain it.
So when i was two my mom left my dad. tHey fought for custody over me and she won, but he has secured visitation. Which means that i would go into a secured area and my mom would leeave and then my dad would come in and we could talk. He has to pay for it though and it's cheap but he hasn't asked for it. My mom and i have been talking and i keep trying to lside her into a conversation of how i would like to see him but hse just doesn't get my clue. Is there any idea that i could try???
Thanks in advance,


 Hey girl! It's probably best just to tell her flat out rather than hint at it. Make sure she has time for a conversation, sit her down and let her know what's on your mind.

If he asks you why hen you should talk to him about how you feel. Tell him how the things he says make you feel. Good luck girly! xoxo kerra
