my mom has been acting strange the past week or two, and i think its because shes preggers. For example she won't let me hug her because her stomach hurts, shes been craving snickers alot, shes only been getting slightly larger in her mid-section, and the biggest indicator... she has a a huge bag of brend new maternity clothes in her closet!!! I really want to ask herif it true but don't know how to do it, or how i feel about a new baby! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

MOD! MOD! MOD!
I just got back from vacation two days ago. My cousin and I made plans for yesterday. But I had to cancel on our plans (made 1 week before) becasue my papa had to go to the hospitol. My papa has been in the hosspitol 3 times since April. Everytime it is worse. And every time, my mom spends less and less time at home. I am stuck at home all day (normally 8 hours) babysitting my little sister and bro. My little sis is old enough to baby sit now, and she in confortable and responsible enough to stay with my little bro for a few hours.
Yesterday, I was talking to my cuz (who is more like a best friend to me). He said we should make plans to get together. I tried, but when I checked it with my mom, she told me that I should make plans,to go by the minute. The plans weren't until after my dad got home, and I just wanted to see if it was possible. It makes me mad how all my other cousins are not effected at all by this. The cuz I am gonna hang with is from my dads side. HELP!




Hey babe! It sounds like your dad could really use your support right now. Maybe you should focus on helping your family before worrying about how to spend your time. Your parents may be going through a difficult time and you should let them know that you're there for them when they need you. Whether that's staying at the hospital with your mom or babysitting your sibs. This could be a difficult time, I don't know what's going on with your dad. I sincerely hope everything is ok, but you should spend as much time with your family as you can. Life is about love and spending your time with loved ones is all that matters. xoxo

I live with my dad and I've started my period and I had some pads from when some people came to my school but eventually i'll need to ask him to take me to the store to buy pads and tampons and bras(ect.) but i just dont know how to start the conversation about it! I dont really have any close friends that I would be comfortable talking about this stuff with so thats out of the question..Plzz Help!




Hey girl,

Even though it's kinda an uncomfortable topic, your dad is expecting you to start going through puberty, so this won't come as a shock to him. You can start by just telling him that you know this is uncomfortable, but you really need to buy these things and don't know who else to turn to. Also, if you have a female relative that you could talk to, that might be good too. But don't worry, your dad will probably handle the situation much better than you're expecting. Good luck! x0x0

k so my family is catholic and recently i have decided not to follow the church any more and i have moved to a religion that relates to me and i want to tell my parents i know my dad will be okay with it but i dont know about my mom because she grew up in a family that went to church every sunday and were close. so my questions are 1> should i tell my parents? 2> any tips how? 3> what should i do if they dont agree with my change?
Thanks
M<3




Hey babe! If you and you're mom are close then she should be totally fine with your decision. Sit them down one evening and be honest with them.  Tell your mom you understand that she may not agree with your change because of her childhood, but you hope she can support you. If they really don't like the idea, then you just have to listen to your parents. You can follow the religion that fits you once you're older. Good luck! xoxo

Okay I am really confused and scared about this. Okay so I think my mom is using drugs. I went into her room and looked in one of her drawers and found this like dry plant stuff. Sometimes when I walk downstairs she hides stuff in her lap to prevent me from seeing. I asked her the other day if she ever did drugs and she said that she doesn't believe that all drugs are bad so the just makes me think more that she is doing it. I don't want to talk to her about because i'm scared. The only person I have told is my boyfriend and he is doing the best he can to help me through this. MOD, I really need help but I don't know where to start. What should I do?




Hey girl, if you suspect your mother is using drugs, you need to talk to your father or a trusted adult around you (neighbors, aunt, etc.) so they can give you a hand and help you solve this as best as you can.

So, I was on youtube listening to Rhianna's solo version of love the way you lie. I was reading the comments, something I always do, and a comment said...I was on redtube and this came up.. I didn't know what redtube was. I thought it was like a music place like another youtube. So I went to the site and it asked me if I wanted to enter a porn website. I quickly exited the page, so I didn't enter it. I am freaking out and I don't know what to do. Should I tell my parents...I seriously didn't try to go to a porn website. I didn't see anything and my brother deleted the history so you can't see it. But I know its still on my computer. (could you delete everything up to here so everyone can't see what I typed... I am so ashamed of what I accidentally did) Help MOD I feel so guilty and I don't know if I should tell my parents or not. Thanks.




If you're very upset, explain to your parents what happened--they should understand Smile

Hey girly,
I am so so sorry to hear that this happened to you. Yes definitely leave the relationship and don't go back there. Stay in your house and tell a trusted adult. Then, you should definitely call the nineline at 1-800-999-9999. They will be able to help you. Good Luck and I hope that everything works out for you.

All my cousins and friends have Facebook accounts and I would like one too.. But, my mom won't let me. She doesn't think that it is safe enough. I tried to talk about the privacy controls, but she still won't budge. What should I do??




Try talking to her when she's in a good mood and address each of her concerns.
