Mod!!!!! My mom and brothers (2) are always making fun of me, and telling me that i'm fat and bratty and spoiled, and it's really starting to bug me, i've tried talking to them but they just made fun of me more, and my dad's usually out of town. The worst part is, sometimes my brothers hit me, and sit on me, they won't stop and it's leaving bruises and people are starting to ask why, but i don't want to tell them. HELP!!!

My parents are divorced.They both live in the same town.I spend most of the time w/ my mom,her boyfriend and his dog.I want to spend more time with my dad.I don't feel confortble around my mom's BF and am allergic to his dog.I have told my mom how I feel and she got really mad.My dad lives alone and is not dating.I think he misses my sister and me.I used to be super close to him but, b/c I don't spend alot of time with him,we are not close.I told my dad that I want to move in w/ him.He was happy and tried to make it work but,my mom won't budge.HELP

 

When it comes to divorces, there's often some sort of legal arrangement that dictates which parent you spend most of your time with. To get some free time with your dad, take  different approach. Instead of telling your mom that you don't like her BF and his dog, simply say that you want to spend Saturday with your dad. If he asks ya out to dinner or a b-ball game, ask her if you can go. Chances are she'll say yes.

MOD MOD MOD: My parents have been seperated for about a month or two and my dad has been acting weird. He seems sad/depressed at times. He doesn't eat as much as he usually does either. The only time I see him actually eat something is when he eats lunch at work. He just seems sad about this when my mom is perfectly fine. I know it might be tough on them at first. Should I worry though?




Hey girlie,

Separation and/or divorce are hard on families - the kids and the adults alike. Everyone experiences it in different ways too. Mom might seem totally fine on the outside, but I'm sure she's disappointed, upset, and emotional at times as well. Dad is just processing it differently. It's normal to get emotional and need some time to heal - and sometimes not eating, over-eating, spending some time alone inside, throwing yourself into exercise/hobbies, etc. are all normal ways of doing this. But if the not-eating lasts for a really long time (I'd say over a month), talk to your mom about this. They might be separated but he's still your dad, so it's important that you all look out for each other so everyone stays healthy and, eventually, happy once again <3

So my mom walked in on me while I was doing something embarrassing, she promised she wouldn't tell, and it was a secret, but I'm so embarrassed and I wanna die! I don't feel like talking to her about it, and she just carries on like nothing happened. I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but I don't know what to do, and I'm really sad and crying. Frown Thank you SO much for your time, I REALLY appreciate it! xoxo <3




If youre really embarrassed and upset, then maybe talk about it with her. It may be scary, but it will probably make you feel better. I really suggest it. xoxo kerra

MOD!
i have registration/school pictures tomorrow at the worst time possible: an hour after volleyball practice. so basically i have an hour to shower and get my hair to look decent and get to registration. i don't blow dry my hair because it never end s up looking good no matter how much stuff i use, so what should i do? just sit in front of a fan or something?




Hey girl, I'd put it up if you need to or just make an exception and use a blow dryer this once and a round brush (the way to get a great, controlled hairstyle). If you need to, don't blow it dry all the way so it doesn't get too out of hand. Good luck!

MODERATOR!! My parents are having a fight right now. My mom called my dad a liar, and he's all mad and taking it out on me. They always complain about each other to me. I'm getting sick of it. Five years ago, my dad said he was thinking about divorcing my mom but I begged him not to. Was in the right place to tell me that? What should I do? Thanks!




Hey chica!

Sorry about the tough spot you're in right now. I'd say it's best to stay out of the argument. Don't take sides with either parent; you want to stay neutral. Maybe once the fight blows over you could sit your parents down and talk to them. Tell them how you're feeling and how their constant fighting is affecting you. Be totally honest with them, because they need to know what's going on in your head. If you have any siblings, see if they want to help you talk to your parents. All the support you can get, the better. Good luck, girly!

My parents are divorced and whenever I'm with my dad his girlfriends and his friends they don't exactly bad mouth her but the make comments that make me feel uncomfortable. Sometimes I just go in my room and cry. What should I do?




Hey chica!

Sorry to hear about your tough situation. The best thing I think you could do is talk to your dad one-on-one and tell him how you feel about everything. You have to be completely honest and tell him what's going on inside your head.

My friend could really use this article. She "let it slip" that her parents have recently started fighting a lot, and i feel really bad, but she doesn't seem to want to open up to anyone about it. I think its really bothering her, and I'd like to help . . . I don't know what I can do. Any ideas?


 


Hey chica! Maybe you could email it to her, or send it in a message through Facebook. Just be brief about it, and let her know that you think it may help, and that you care about her and are there if she needs anything. Sometimes, though, the best thing you can do is take her mind off of things and help her to have fun when she's with you!

Arrange for them to go on a date for a bit. At least once a week try to buy your parents some free time by doing chores and stuff. It might help a bit.:/
