My parents want to adopt another kid

I think it’s a great idea, in theory. But I’m not sure how I really feel about it. What do you think?

Mod mod! Last week I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder which dosent surprise me at all because my life is a disaster. My mom and stepdad are getting a divorce and my stepdad is either fighting/being rude/mean with my mom or yelling at me and then gets so annoyed and confused when I spend more time at my dads house. That plus drama and other normal teenager stuff isnt helping my anxiety problems. I'm currently finding out that my BFF has completly lied to me especially all the lies she told me that ruined my relationship with my ex BF when I confronted him. This weekend she says that she got drunk in NYC over heartbreaks that happened months ago with guys that she didn't even date, and apparently she's had a history of lying. I don't know if I can trust her. I have no idea what to do bout my ex because I kinda miss him having my back. I haven't slept well in months Im taking an antidepressant with my ADHD meds and I'm a hot mess. Help me :-'(

 

Hey girl!

Sometimes thinking about what you would do in someone else's situation, such as your mom or even your step dad, can help you come up with potential solutions for their problems. Although a lot of times people may not take your advice, you'll at least feel like you tried, and it'll help you feel more prepared in dealing with your own situations. You could also ask a relative about what you or they should do to make the situation a little better and the environment in the house more positive and loving. If you like spending time at your dad's place, that's your preference and you shouldn't feel guilty about someone else being upset. Even though it's hard to accept, it's usually not possible to please everyone completely. You could explain to your ex the misunderstanding caused by your friend lying, but if he isn't willing to accept that, he might not be the guy for you as misunderstandings like that happen a lot, so if he didn't stick it out through this one, he probably won't in the future. Yeah, sounds like you could use a new friend. Most people are honest, so your next BFF most likely will be, too. Smile

Hey chica, i understand how wierd this is for you. You're uncomftorable with such a HUGE change. You sound like a great girl. You can get through this. If my parents told me they might adopt, I'd be freaking out. But, think about it this way. You're parents are willing to take another child into their lives to feed, clothe, and house. Alll of this, but the greatest thing they'll be doing is making another kid's life better. If they're willing to do that, you should to. Tell your heart the truth. You can get do it!

MOD*** I just recently moved to a new house and my mom started smoking in the house. Before we moved she'd smoke out on the porch and now all of a sudden she does it in the house. I've tried talking to her about it and asking her why she does it and she tells me to mind my own business and that she pays the bills so she can do what she wants. All of my clothes are starting to smell from her smoking in the house and even my hair. Do you have any tips the might help getting rid of the stink?

 

Hey girl, just be sure that after you wash them with fabric softener, and even spray them with perfume, keep them closed in storage boxes or drawers. That way they'll be protected from the smell. Hope this helps! Smile Smile

I am the youngest in my family and I feel really left out.My older brothers are really coola dn have alot of friends while i'm still stuck in elemantary school with a few friends, and when i think about hwen i'll be at middle school and highschool, it seems like the place wont be cool without my brothers because then there will be no one who will be my friend. Is this going to happen?




Hey girlie,

Not at all! It might be a lil disappointing that your bros won't be at the high school with you, but that doesn't mean high school won't be fun or you won't have any friends. Instead, you'll make your own friends, get to follow your own interests, and make your own HS experience!! Learn from them though - the reason they seem so "cool" and have so many friends is because they got involved, were out-going, and stayed confident. Do that and you'll have a blast! Smile

MOD,MOD,MOD!
Life SUCKS! I have a horrible step dad who is arguing with my mom every Day He gets the chance to! Tomorrow they are going to an awards ceremony and remember this is REALLY LAST SECOND! So my mom is out looking for a dress! I am so TIRED OF HIM! He gets on my nerve! They're going to leave me at a hotel while they're at the ceremony! They're going to give me "Snacks" and I will watch T.V. For TONS of HOURS! No CELL OR INTERNET! NOW SHE'S GOING TO MARRY THIS CREEP NEXT SUMMER IN ST.Lucia Then he'll become my (GAG) FATHER! I can't talk to her because she doesn't really care about what I think in this Situation. I can't talk to my soon to be *One Again* (GAG!) Stepfather. WHAT DO I DO???????????




Hey girlie,

It's totally understandable that you aren't happy about this situation - it's tough when one of our parents moves on, meets someone new, and spends lots of time with them. It changes our whole normal routine! But remember two things. First, even if they do get married, this guy isn't necessarily your father. He's not trying to take over that role in your life, and you don't have to refer to him as your father unless you really want to. Second, remember that - even though they fight and you see him as a creep - your mom sees something that she loves in this guy. She loves and respects him enough to want to spend the rest of their lives together, which is saying a lot! Try to see him from her point of view and remember that, while your needs/wants are important, she also has her own life and wants to be happy too! In order to stay sane with all this crazy change happening around you, make sure you schedule one-on-one mom-and-daughter time at least once a week. It'll really help you stay centered and remember what's most important: you and mom staying close, being happy, and supporting each other!

My mom gave away my cat that i had for 9 years; 2 years ago in 8th grade. I loved her...she got me through some tough stuff...my mom gave her to a shelter cuz the vet couldnt figure out what was wrong with her and why she was peeing on the carpets(she was 9 and litterbox-trained)like i said, its been 2 yrs and every 2 months or so, i cry right before i go to bed. i wont even be thinking remotely about her and i start to remember all our happy times. i think i just miss her sooo much and i get paranoid that she isnt in a good home or the shelter put her down.(my mom gave her to the county animal shelter and i dont think they do that but...i cant stop thinking it)
what im wondering is:is this normal/healthy?




Hey babe, 




Not being able to communicate with someone you love (even if it is an animal), is a really hard thing.  I think you should speak with a trusted adult about how you feel, based on how long it's been since you last saw your cat. It could be a family member, doctor, guidance counselor, teacher, whatever. I hope you feel better soon!

MOD!!!
So, I did something really bad! I snuck out at night to go to a boys house and my parents figured out. I had a friend over too but i dont want her to get introuble so i told my parents that she didnt go with me. My mom said that she would have to talk to my friends mom if she was there. My cousin was with me too and she got caught too. Her mom talked to her and she told her mom that my friend went with us and i told my mom that she didnt so our moms are trying to figure out if she did or not but i cant talk to my cousin cause my phone got taken away!i dont want my friend to get introuble she didnt even talk around the guys she does not deserve this! Please help!




Hey girl, explain that to your parents. The truth will probably prevail in this case, but you can make it as painless as possible by explaining why you kept it.

***MOD*** I'm in DESPERATE need of a second opinion right now. My friend (15 years old) has had the toughest time as of late with just life and stuff. Her parents have done some pretty crazy things for her "own good" that even I have to agree are a stretch. But now, she's told me that she wants to run away with her boyfriend. This isn't just some random guy though, they've dated for almost two years and they are really in love. However, I KNOW that running away isn't the answer!!! There is no way for them to support themselves and they will cause major heartbreak (me included). She trusts me more than anyone else and only told me because I'm the only one she trusts. However, I know this isn't right and I'm HATING the situation I'm in right now because no matter what I say I feel like I'm talking to a wall. Did I mention I'm really stressed already to begin with so now this is putting me on edge?!!? What do I DO? HELP!!! Cry

 

Hey girlfriend, you're right, running away is defintely not the answer! We defintely need to get her some help, maybe you could refer her to your school counselor. She probably needs to get away from her family, so see if she can spend some weekends with you, because you seem like you're a pretty positive influence in her life. Whenever you get the chance try to talk her out of it. Hope this helps ya!!! Smile

my parents think i dress innapropitly even though i just dress like a NORMAL 13 year old girl. They sometimes have fights about what i wear, yell at me for it and take some of my "innapropiate" clothes away...they recently even took away all of my skirts! they tell me i cant waer the same things and its embaressing to think about and i get really mad that them...i mean i have a good reason right? I think all of this is getting into my self esteem and social life too how do i get them to stop? im never going to trust them if the keep sneaaking around like this behind my back! my friends dont even believe this when i tell them because we dress a lot alike and their parents have no problem at all with it! what do i do?




Try sitting them down (when you guys are having a good time/when things are positive) and talk to them about how you feel. Explain your self-esteem issues and ask them their reasoning and if there is any way you guys can compromise Smile

i think my older sis is anorexic.and im also angry because shes always been thin, even wen she did eat, and ive always been the bigger one, the uglier one, the one who doesnt get any guys, and it seems as if im more confident than HER, and theres been countless times ive cried myself to sleep becuz of tht, but i wood NEVER become anerexic just cuz ive gained a lil weight, also, my sis has (or had) depression, n wen she was 13 or 14 she started cutting, and i think she stopped, and now shes 16, shes gorgeous, shes thin, she has big boobs, and a hot bf, and SHES anorexic, im just so angry, sad, confused, worried, idk to break down and cry or scream in her face and knock her out, what am i supposed to do?!?!?


 


Hey girly! It sounds like you have a really good head on your shoulders, which I'm very glad to hear. As for your sister, though, you definitely need to talk an adult about this and let them know what's going on with her. Try talking to your parents about it. Show them the site and let them know how worried you are. If you can't talk to them, I'd talk to an aunt or uncle, a grandparents, or even a friend's parent that you trust. Also, guidance counselors at school would know what to do. The bottom line is, your sister needs help before this gets any worse.

There's this guy that I met in an after school thing when I was in 8th grade and he was in 7th, and now he's a freshman at my high school. We didn't talk much except for when we were at our volleyball thing for a couple months, and it was pretty obvious we liked each other. Now whenever I see him, there's this wierd eye contact that I can't figure out. It's like "I know you, but I don't know if you remember me so I'm not gonna say hi but I'm kinda trying to say hi." Idk if it's even that, but I think you know what I mean. Help me figure this guy out? And should I just say hello next time this happens?

 

Hey girl,

Ugh, that is SO awk! I've totally been there. Be the bigger person here and break the ice once and for all. Next time you see him, make eye contact and smile. It's something subtle and simple, but it'll make him feel much less awkward around you. As time goes by and you settle into this routine, start working in a relaxed "Hey!" or a lil wave. It's hard to tell if he still likes you since some time has passed, but by being warm and friendly even in the midst of awkwardness, you'll definitely make him feel more comfy around you. Once you do, you can try talking to him a lil more and picking up on any signs that he might still feel the same Smile

Hey, girlie. I totally know how you're feeling right now. My family did foster care for about four years before we adopted my eight-year-old sister. I'm not going to lie, it was hard getting used to having another sibling besides my brother, and having to share my parents attention between 3 people, but it got easier. So whatever your parents decide, hang in there. It will all work out.Smile

Hey, so I have a brother who is a year older than me. Hes always been really mean to me for as long as I can remember, He dosen't hit me or anything but he says awful things to me. and always tells me what a fail i am.) . I know he's verbaly abusive to me, but when ever I tell my mom she says i'm over reacting and I need to suck it up and deal. I tried that for like 10 years, but now it's getting to the point where I can't deal, and I hate my self so much that I cut and punch my self, and i know im suicidle. I just don't know what to do.... thanks in advance.




hey! The thing to remember is that your brother does thins because of his own insecurities. You should not hate yourself because of what someone else says about you. The next time you're alone, try thinking about the things that you like about yourself. When your brother says mean things, ask yourself if you really believe that they're true of if it just hurts to hear them said. You are not overreacting, and if your mom won't help try talking to a student counselor or another trusted adult. If things get to be too much don't hesitate to go here: http://www.girlslife.com/post/2008/08/04/HELP!2.aspx Stay strong!

I have 3 little brothers, and one older sister, and two of my little brothers are adopted from Ukraine. Their names are Max, and JT and they both have Down Syndrome. They've been home since Christmas 2009 (Almost 3 years now!!) and they are sooooo amazing!
In some countries, children with special needs get put into an adult mental institution at the age of four if they have not been adopted, and die within a year from lack of food, water, and exercise. It's really heartbreaking!! But, that's not my point here.
My point is, adoption is a great thing. It's giving a child a life outside of an orphange, or foster home. I think you are worried about change in your life? Change can be a great thing. Especially in adoption. My favorite quote about adoption- "Adopting one child won't change the world, but for that child, the world will change." Try to be open minded. It'll be just like your mom having a baby, except the "baby" will probably be a little older.
