My mom won't let me get a cell phone, even though I'll be 13 in November. Everybody in my grade has had one since 5th grade ((I'm going into 8th)) but I really do need one for marching band. I've tried to explain this, but since I haven't been that responsible in the past she still hesitates on everything now. What should I do?


Hey adeleeevee, instead of telling her why you deserve one, show her. Since you've been a little irresponsible lately, turn that around. Show her how mature you are and always be respectful. She'll see the changes and maybe change her mind. Hope this helps! Xoxo Smile

how do i act more grown up and responsable i feel like im i'm stuck in 5th grade and im in 7th! How can i have more freedome! any ideas?


Hey sweets! Try making compromises with your parents! Ask for more responsibilities in exchange for more freedom! If you show that you can handle more responsibilities maybe you'll get treated like your older! xoxo

I live in a foreign country for my dads job. I am fluent in the language but in school I'm always embaressed to talk. This year Im going to a new middle school and I don't know ANYBODY there! PLZ HELP


Hey girlie,

These articles about making friends fast apply to all school situations, even non-English ones! Read through them and take their cues - be calm, be yourself, and focus on pushing yourself a little past your comfort zone each day. Challenge yourself and do one outgoing thing each day - sit at a new lunch table, join a club, or just strike up a convo with someone in the halls. Be casual about it and joke around. Smile! Show people you're someone they should get to know Smile Because you ARE!

I have this friend lets call her "Melanie" So Melanie and I have been friends since birth and I really care about her! But sometimes she tends to be a snob. Like for example shes friends with this mean girl who hates me. And she totally treats me like garbage when shes around! And another thing is whenever we talk she makes me sound stupid! Like for example "We were talking about the Dollar Store and all its great deals!" And I told her this "Hey Melanie you can get a whole pack of lip gloss for a dollar!"
She says "Yea I know" Thats why its called the DOLLAR STORE!
Then I get hurt!
I really care about her but Im sick of the way shes treating me! What do I do? Sorry this is so long.


Hey girl! I'm sorry your friend is bullying you.  I think you should stand up for yourself and let her know she's being mean.  If she keeps at it, it might be time to take a break form your friendship.  It might just be a phase that she'll grow out of and you can be friends again when this is all over. xoxo

Mod Well I'm starting a new school I'm going into grade 7 this would be my third school in the last 3 years. I'm really nervous about making friends because at my last school I bounced around a lot with friends and only had one friend who is my bestie that I really stuck with. I really need advice so I don't screw up this school. Thanks



Hey girly girl! As scary as it is, this is kind of exciting in a way! Think about it, you can totally reinvent yourself to be whoever you want to be. Do you want to try a new fashion style?Get more into sports? Theatre? Anything else? You can do it! My best advice would be to get involved in a lot of different things that you enjoy doing. That way, you'll meet people like you, and you'll have a bigger friend base! Smile

MOD MOD MOD ... I am starting at a new school, and am going to the open house. One girl I have met before has invited me to go with her and hang out with her after the open house. I want to be able to make friends with people at my new school, but she seems to like to hang out with the cooler people but is not really one of them. I guess, she's like what people call a wanna-be, and I had someone like that at my old school, and we were enemies a lot of the time. I'm just not sure I want to be friends with someone like that, but I'm not really sure what I should do. I don't want to Already be like bffs because she was the first one I could really hang out with before I meet everyone else, but I don't want to go there without something I know I can really be sure of and not go there being clueless and made a fool out of because I am more of an antisocial loner. I am shy and get nervous and anxious around people that aren't my family.What do I do?


Hey girl! Just because you didn't like girls "like her" at your old school doesn't mean things won't be totally different at your new school.  You don't want to judge someone before you even meet them.  Hang out with her.  You don't have to be BFFs, but having a friendly face will help during the first couple days at school.  If you two don't hit it off, you don't have to be friends with her forever, but she might be able to introduce you to other girls and help you make friends.  Good luck at your new school! xoxo
