Hi i am nine but i have big boobs i have a family were the girls have big boobs with no surgery or anything like that but i were a bra and some people in my grade or school they have no boobs cuz there so small and i boobs that are bigger then people in like 6th grade and i am going into fourth

 Hey Sweetie,

Don't worry -- everyone develops at their own pace, and it's nothing to feel self conscious about. Especially since it's a family thing, it's nothing to worry about! Just be confident and comfortable with yourself - everyone else will catch up, I promise.

Don't worry at ALL! I have been flying since I was a baby, and I've been on more than 40 round trip flights, some lasting really short, like an hour; some lasting about 5-6 hours; and some lasting as long as 12 hours! I, to tell you the truth, hate planes, but NOT because it's scary... it isn't. I just get bored. But I love airports! They are so fun, IDK why! You get free drinks on the flight, and sometimes a free snack. There is usually a movie playing, and sometimes everybody each gets a personal TV! It's awesome!Check you flight to see if there are any movies/person TV's. If there aren't any personal TVs, no movies, or it the movie playing is one you don't like, make sure to bring a laptop or iPod/Pad if you have one to load movies/TV shows on! I'm going on a flight soon and I'm loading a bunch of Modern Family episodes onto it! So yeah, don't be worried!

I love to sing and i was thinking of making a video of me singing. I don't play the guitar or piano, so what should i do with my hands during the video?
Thank you Smile

Bonjour chicky! Just keep them at your side for you want your audience to focus on your voice - not your hands!

I dont need any of those tips as i am already a frequent flyer Smile considering my dad is pilot and i just came back from a foreign exchange program that was in Madrid!!! And i am only an 8th grader haha

Hey Madison, don't be scared of them. They're just peope. Who cares if they don't believe you, your true friends won't desert you. And don't be scared of confrontation. You say your thoughts and say what you really think about their opinion. Because people will like you so much better if you stand up instead of back down. If you need help on doing that, I'm here to help! I am the master of standing up to popular kids! ;)

Today we had a sub teacher for the teacher who hated me but then she started liking me and the sub left the teacher a note because I was talking and stuff, She's gonna hate me! What should I do? Please help!

Hey girl, your sub was going to leave your teacher a note regardless. But just in case, I'd be on your best behavior in class. Prove the worst of whatever could be in that note wrong through your actions.

Someone in my grade (10th grade) sent out a nasty and personal text message about the 10 most popular Girls in my grade. They're all going around blaming everyone, and I'm afraid they're going to get me. Even though I didn't send the message, I;m afraid they'll confront me and won't believe me. I think I know who did it. I'm just not saying because I might get blamed, but I think it's Sarah, a Girl who blackmailed me and some friends before. I don't know. The only time I heared about it was from my BFFL Mallory at lunch. Mallory got confronted, and they were mad at her, but Mallory proved to them that even though she's a rumor spreader, she still didn't do it. What should I do? Please help!

Hey girlie. The popular girls are actually just being really mean by blaming everyone. If they blame you, tell them you didn't do it. That's all you can do. Whether they believe you or not, it doesn't really matter. You will always have your true friends, like Mallory.

MOD MOD MOD I'm going to holiday world for a field trip in may. So, we're going on a charter bus and it will take 3 hours to get there. What can I do for 3 hours on the bus trip. I'm going take Girls Life Magizine but, I'm a fast reader. P.S- We're allowed to bring electronics if that helps.



Hey chica! You could always bring a book to read. Or, you could bring a deck of cards to play with your friends, or an I-Pod if you have one Smile

MOD MOD MOD!! PLEASE HELP ME! i have a huge dilemma! okay so i really wanna start gymnastics! one problem: im tall(5'2") and im 11. i also am not flexible and i cant do anything but a cartwheel, a roundoff, and i can do a front walkover(a little messy and i cant stand up from it). i told my parents but my mom said im too tall to start. im really sad because ive always wanted to be a gymnast!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Hey girlie,

Let your mom know that it's something you are really passionate about and see if she can get more information for you on how you can get started.  If it's right for your body and your age to get started, I'm sure it can work out!

I am going to Germany in a week! I am soo excited!!! How can I make it easier to wait? Also, its going to be a 12 hour flight, and we have to wait in San Fransisco for 3 hours! What should I do on the plane to pass time? (Im VERY impatient Laughing)

Hey girlie. That's so awesome that you're going to Germany. Try to pass your time with other things- reading, hanging out with friends, listening to music etc. On the plane, bring an issue of GL to pass the time! Also, they will probably have movies playing on the plane since it's such a long flight, so you can watch them. Remember to take lots of pictures when you're there and have fun!

TRUST ME. There is NOTHING to be afraid of. The worst thing about flying is that (for me) it takes FOrEveR to get where im supposed to go. SO just bring stuff to entertain yourself and you'll be perfectly fine!!!

by goldfish123 on 3/14/2011 12:45:59 AM


Hey, girls! Do you need advice? Well, I give advice on everything:
Dealing with mean girls
Money making ideas
Gift ideas
Serious issues
Body issues
Eating right
Tough stuff
And anything else you can think of! And if I can't answer your question, I'll try to point you to someone who can. So if you need help now, leave a comment on my profile. I promise to get back to you ASAP. And I come on GL usually at least once a day, so I'll get back to you pretty soon.

When we went to Orlando,in November, it was hott. so i would pack for any kind of weather. sometimes it would be hot, other times cold. Have fun, especially at Universal Studios

by Prep4Life on 3/13/2011 5:54:30 PM


A couple years ago, my family and I flew to Europe. The flight felt like forever but I brought a bunch of stuff to entertain myself (2 books, i-pod, string for bracelets, etc). You'll be fine girly!

by pumpkinerin on 3/13/2011 1:19:57 PM


Sometimes I feel like such a social outcast. Like everyone else can have fun and socialize, but it's really hard for me. If I try to strike up a conversation, people usually neglect what I have to say. Like in school, I just find it hard to open up and say something because I always feel I'm going to be ignored. I also feel that it seems like it's okay for everyone else to do whatever they want, but if I act " out there" people are going to think I'm a bigger freak. I'm a junior in high school, but I really don't want this to continue on. I want to have a good time and actually enjoy going to school. It's annoying because I'm such a fun, spontaneous person at home, but when it comes to school, I shut down.

Hey girl,

School can be an intimidating place sometimes because it's unfamiliar, unlike home. Sometimes, it helps to give yourself daily challenges - tell yourself to speak up at the lunch table today, or ask your friends about that movie you heard about, etc. Each day you accomplish your goal, you'll feel more confident and you'll prove to yourself that it is TOTALLY ok to say what you think Smile

I feel unwanted in my family. My 5 year old sister Cianna is a pageant girl. I'm 12 and I want to be a pageant girl but my Mom says I'm to old. I feel unliked. What should I do? Please help!

Hey girlie,

You should find out what you're good at and invest time in that!  You don't have to be a pageant girl to get your parent's attention.  If you're good at sports or art (painting, singing, dancing...) then see how you can get involved in those areas and ask your parents to support you in your hobbies.  Just let your parents know how much you would appreciate it if they supported you and spent time with you too Smile

Plus, put your toiletries and stuff in a clear ziploc plastic bag. If it spills, you won't have a big mess to clean up.

by monkeygal22 on 3/12/2011 7:27:41 PM


I've been flying since I was about 2, I love it!!!!I especially love going overseas. I usually just bring a small backpack on the flight with me, with stuff like gum, mp3 player, a sleeping mask, earplugs, stuff to keep busy with, magazines, books, other stuff...

by monkeygal22 on 3/12/2011 7:26:21 PM


i love flying to keep your ears from poppong bring earbuds or gum and if they pop yawn it will help

I haven't been on a plane in 11 years

HEY GIRLS! new ballet club please check it out!

by ballet~talk on 3/12/2011 2:44:55 PM


Don't worry about the plane! You sound EXACTLY like I did before I went on my first plane ride a few months back (and I'm 14, if that makes you feel any better!) I was shaking for the 1st part of the day at school before we left for the airport! But the airplane ended up being one of my FAVORITE parts of the trip to Florida!!! Try to get a window seat too! I packed a bunch of stuff in my carry on, but I really didn't use much of it, I just looked out the window the whole time Smile as for the ear popping, by the end of the trip I taught myself how to yawn on command, which really helped @ takeoff & landing! Gum works too, I brought my fave flavor and it helped a lot! The earpopping isn't that bad though. I'm sure you will have so much fun! Be sure to look out the window because the view is absolutely AMAZING!!! Have a blast chica!!

I've been on a plane 4 times, flying isn't bad at all!

by caitlingirl1997 on 3/12/2011 12:09:30 PM


ive never even been on a plane before Frown

by Alle93 on 3/12/2011 11:56:34 AM


Flying isn't bad at all! The workers at the airport r really nice, and the flight is fun if you have tunes, reading, puzzles, drawing, ect. I used to worry about getting air-sick, and the stress of that would make me sick, so just relax. I have been flying since I was 9 weeks old. Laughing

by spicyllamachick2120 on 3/12/2011 11:12:10 AM


Just be warned that sometimes the gum and swallowing doesn't work for ear popping. I've flown several times, and each time the gum nor swallowing works for me. Then as we land, my ears pop really loud and then 'clog up' or whatever, and I can't hear a thing for several hours after the flight!! xD
Then suddenly it goes away. It's very strange. Don't be scared, it's just the body's natural reaction to the air pressure change. Brittany G.

Hey! ive gone flying many times! make sure you bring some things to do on the plane but don't over pack. hope you have fun!

by taylorswiftfan1236 on 3/12/2011 9:25:38 AM


Flying is totally ok, I have been flying since I was practically born!! In your carry on, be sure to pack fresh underwear and maybe a shirt and sweatpants, just in case your luggage gets lost (chances are very rare, but it happened to me once). If you have contacts, BRING A CASE AND SOLUTION.
Also, don't bring any liquids over three oz. into the airport (like from your car), because you will have to throw it away when you go through security. BUt you can by stuff past security that is over 3 oz. that you can bring on the plane. And, bring some really good gum, it keeps your ears from popping and nice to have if you get bored and want to do something with your mouth. (just don't smack) Flying is fun, so don't be scared!!
