My friend wants me to my parents

This girl and I used to be really close, but she started hanging with a fast crowd when we went to high school.

I just found out that a VERY bratty girl is going to be in my class this year!I will not be able to stand her another year help!!!!!!!

Hey girl!

The best thing you can do is ignore her. Do everything you can not to let her bratty ways bother you. Surround yourself with people totally unlike her. Focus on what's important: doing well in school!

My friend came over yesterday to hang out, and while my mom wasn't home she told me that she stole things from our local mall. She told me how she took the sunglasses she was wearing, and how she put on like 5 pairs of underwear on under her clothes at Victoria's Secret. I don't necessarily want to tell my parents about this, since I don't plan on staying close with her anymore. I have been in this crowd before and I definitely don't want to go back. How can I tell her I don't want to be friends with her, or how can I slowly give us space so I don't have to deal with her? Thanks xx

Hey Girl,

Yikes! Shoplifting is serious stuff! Kudos to you for wanting to stay away from her behavior. I know you don't want to sound lke her mom, but tell her she needs to stop. If she gets caught, it could go on her record. Does she really want colleges and future employers to see that she stole-- all over $ lipgloss? If she won't stop give her an ultimatum-- she stops stealing, or you stop being friends.

best of luck--

Me and my friend have had our on-and-off problems since elementary, but now in middle school it seems worse. She lies about almost everything (what people have said, that she's psychic, what she's said, etc.)and she can also be rude to me and one of her ex-friends (who is one of my best friends, we used to be at trio). I get upset and confront her about these things, but she just denies the lies and begs for me to accept her apology when shes rude. I'm getting really annoyed and frustrated to the point where I don't even like spending time with her much.She even gets upset when I hang with new friends. Should I continue this friendship (we've been close since 3rd grade)?

Hey girlie,

If you're not happy, then there's never any really to stay in a relationship or a friendship.  You should never do something that makes you unhappy.  If she doesn't change even after you talk to her about it, then I think it's understandable for you to end the friendship or just gradually let it die off.

I have all of the signs that I will get my period, plus one year to ALL of them! I am really freaking out, plus I am a year older than my mom was when she got hers. I am worried that I will be caught off guard! But mostly, I am worried about talking to my mom about this, and I am worried about talking to her when I do get it! Help!

 Hey babe,

Check out this article: First Period Prep. Unfortunately, you might not have any signs before your first period. Girls have them at all different ages so it's basically unpredictable. Don't be worried to talk to your mom about it - she's been there and done that! You should be prepared with pads/tampons at home for when it does come, so you should talk to your mom about buying some to keep in stock. She will totally understand.

OMG HELP my friend has depression and she wants to kill herself!!! I'm so scared!!! She says that i'll be ok and that that I won't notice but i will!!! She told me not to tell anybody. But I don't want my friend to kill herself!!! I'm so scared!!! HELP!!!



Hey Hermione,


Suicide threats should always be taken very seriously. You absolutely need to get adults involved- either the parents, or if they won't listen, the police. Try to be there for your friend as best as you can, but remember that this isn't your fault, and she put you in an impossible position. Even if you think she might be mad at you later for telling people about her threat, it's much better to explain your position to her in person, rather than having her go through with it and feeling regret. 


If you want someone to talk to, the nine-line is a great source. 1800-999-9999. It's totally free, and they will be able to you help out.

I have a friend whos been acting different these few months. When my other friends and i befriended her, she was nice and cool but now shes kinda acting weird. During lunch she acts the way we always knew her but during class, she is always bossy and competitive to us and ditches us to hang out with other girls. Also, i REALLY dont like when she kisses the teacher's butts. This all really irritates me but when i tell her, she gets offended. What should I do?

Hey girlie,

She might be feeling pressure to do really well in school - whether it's from her parents, her siblings, or even herself. It sounds like she only gets competitive and "mean" in classes, so she's probably feeling stressed and like she needs to prove something, or at least be the "best" in the class. If her behavior is hurting your feelings, try catching her one-on-one after school and tell her how you're feeling. Don't corner her and don't attack her - just let her know that you feel kinda bad when she says a certain thing or ditches you, and you really value her as a friend so you wanted to be straight with her. Clearing the air is the best way to deal with stuff like this!

I feel really left out and kind of ticked off at my BFF. We'll be on the bus home from school and she'll start whispering to a girl next to her and basically ignore me all the way home. I also feel like she expects me to do everything for her, and she doesn't have to do anything for me. I love her and everything, but lately she's just seemed different and I don't know what to do about it.
Also, we like the same guy, but she's kind of confusing me over it. Shell say she just wants to be friends with him, but then get really mad when he flirts with someone else. I don't want her to get angry, but this is I think the only one of my crushes I've ever had a chance with, and her past 2 crushes have both asked her out. I'm really shy, so it takes me a while to comfortable around guys and I feel like I've known him forever even though it's only been like a year. What should I do?(sorry this is so long Tong)

Hey girlie,

She's allowed to have other friends besides you (and so are you!), so try not to let any jealous feelings overwhelm you. I know it can be tough because you want that whispering to be with you, but it's healthy for girls to have more than one friend to swap secrets, gossip, depend on, etc. Smile Expecting you to go out of your way to do stuff for her and working way harder in the friendship isn't balanced though! Since you're feeling weird about the friendship right now, try taking a little step back and spending more time around your other friends. A friend shouldn't make us feel angry or frustrated all the time, so a little distance can help you cool off! Focus on your other friends, your crush (talk to him! Don't let her decide what you do with him), your clubs and sports, etc. After a little time, try going back and hanging out with her. Stand up for yourself and if she makes you do something for her, stand your ground and remember you're your own person. Don't let her push you around! <3 I think you'll be a lot more positive about the friendship if you lay down those boundaries - you can be friends, but you'll also have your own life. It's a good balance and can make dealing with her wayyy easier Smile

So last year I transferred to a new school. I made a few friends and then during second semester they all started to hate me. I didn't know why. But this year I made a few friends and I like being with them. But one of them told me they heard rumors about me around the school, saying that I was all this stuff that isn't true. and she doesn't believe them. But what should I do about people talking about me behind my back. i hear people sometimes too. It hurts.
What should I do about the rumors and my old "friends"?


Ignore them. Yes it sucks to have them spreading rumors. But theyre not worth your time. They honestly arnt. If you ignore the lies and hold your head high, people will notice how brave you are and respect you for it. Be yourself. The haters dont matter. xoxo kerra

Yes, it does sound like a terrible idea. If she tries to pressure you into stuff like this, is she worth being your friend? Don't do anything you don't want to, just because you feel like you have to.

by chameleongirl on 4/14/2012 4:09:25 PM


I really don't think you should lie to your parents. If she really is your friend, she would never ask you to do that. Just look at the way she treats you. Does she treat you a little different from the time she got the new crowd? Well then she isn't worth the lie... Think about it... Smile

by Jensenacklecraze on 4/12/2012 2:18:54 AM


So over spring break me and me best friend got in a huge fight... Because she is dating a guy who cussed my out and told me to go kill myself.. And I told her I didn't want her to date him because of this but one day I was sick and he asked her out. She said yes and I was so hurt that day.. So finally spring break comes and I just tell her the truth of how I feel that I feel that she choose this mean boy over a trust worthy friend and it seemed as if she didn't care on how I felt.. So I said to her you can choose him or me.. And she choose him.. I wasn't really hurt but kind of relived but now were back at school and it's weird because shes in all of my classes and we won't talk or look at each other.. I still really want to be her friend but I dont want to be her friend while she's dating him... Please help me I dont know what to do here..

by Lovepink9798 on 4/11/2012 10:44:15 PM


I have this friend we just go back and forth. We fight don't talk for awhile and then a few days later we are fine. but then 2 weeks ago she said she is done being friends with me. this is the longest we ever haven't talk to each other. I kinda hope to be friends with her again but I don't want to apologize or be the one to say hi. I don't know what to do. HELP!

by peanutk1618 on 3/30/2012 4:48:15 PM


Okay so my boyfriend dumped me about 2 and a half weeks ago. And I was really hurt
Even though our relationship didn't last very long. And today one of my closest friends who I
Confided most in about the breakup and everything that had happened between me an my ex
Told me she had feelings for him and that he has had feelings for her for a little while too
I still really like him and I'm really, disappointed in one of my closest friends for doing this to
Me, she's apologized repeatedly but I'm not over him yet and saying sorry doesn't always fix everything, what should I do. I told her I wished her luck but was upset how do I tell her that
It would kill me for them to date without wrecking our friendship I don't want to keep fighting


Hey girl, it sounds like you are in a pretty tough sitch. You have every right to be upset with your BFF, but remember that we don't choose who we have feelings for--sometimes you can develop a crush without even realizing it. You made a mature decision by wishing her luck, but I would talk to her some more and tell her how upset you still are with the breakup. I know it's hard, but at least she told you the truth, rather than letting you find out the wrong way.


I know it might seem impossible, but you will get over this guy, it just takes some time. Try to distance yourself from your friend and your ex-boyfriend--seeing them will only make it worse. Unless your friend plans on ignoring her feelings for this guy, it's not going to be easy for her to like him without the two of you fighting. Plan a fun activity with some of your other friends this weekend to get your mind off of things. Invite a few girls over, rent a funny movie, bake a batch of cookies, paint your nails, and just focus on the positive things in your life!

So I have two separate social groups that I hang out with, which is really stressful, but I manage. Anyway, I have a best friend, Olivia, who's head over heels for a guy called Marco. (They have some history where he was in love with her, but she rejected his advances blah blah blah). I have another friend, Harriet, who likes a guy name Caleb.
Olivia and Harriet are sworn enemies and don't like each other. I split my time between them. Anyway, Harriet and Marco are good friends are in a band together. Olivia doesn't like it and sort of warns Harriet off of him. Olivia can be over dramatic over things. So, as revenge, Olivia--knowing about Caleb and Harriet, goes off to flirt with him. Harriet's hurt and now they're in this huge fight and stuff.
Everything would be fine and it's none of my business, but both drag me into it by complaining about one another and my head's spinning and loyalties are being questioned. Help?!?


 Hey girl! As a friend, you should def listen to your friends rant. After all, what are friends for? Heres the thing though, do not say anything bad about the friend they are ranting about. Its okay to be a listening ear but it is not okay to add your own gossiping opinion. If it really gets out of hand tell them you don't feel comfortable talking about this. Alright, good luck! xo, Erin M.

MOD MOD MOD!!! Okay well im having somewhat of a crisis!! In my part i have flakes of dandruff! Not much and not very noticable, except i have black hair and its white! I only have very little but idk why! I wash my hair everyother day so its clean!! I feel like people can see it and i dont want people to think im gross! I occasionaly use head and shoulders (as apposed to my normal garnier fructis) which is supposed to help with dandruff but it doesnt!! Please help me by telling me some easy and hopefully not hard/gross ways of getting rid of the dandruff! I'll be forever grateful!!(: thanks!! (ik this had nothing to do with this article...i didnt know where to post this!)

Hey girl!

If the Head&Shoulders shampoo doesn't help at all, then search your local drugstore for other shampoos that are specifically made for dandruff.

If it still doesn't seem to affect anything, then your best bet is to visit a dermatologist to prescribe something just for your problem.

My best friend A don't have any classes together so our friendship is drifting away. I try to make convo with her but it ends in awkward silence. I want to hang out with her outside of school but I don't think her mom likes me or thinks I'm a good example. Her mom doesn't like her hanging in my house. Last friday we were suppose to decide on two activities together and we did. but then my other (sort of bossy) friend M wanted to do something else and I agreed. It wasn't until the weekend I remembered I was suppose to be doing the activities with A! I totally ditched her and I feel horrible! I don't know if she is mad at me or not so I texted her saying"hey" she hasnt replied and its been a week! I don't blame her, if someone were to ditch me I would not talk to them! What should I do?

Hi! No matter how badly you want to go to that party, you should NEVER lie to your parents. If they say no, listen to them! Your friends should never influence you to do wrong things.

i have a question wat does mod mean Lynae P.

by sushi20025 on 1/28/2012 4:44:50 PM


Hey GrassFairy, mhmm it's weird that they're treating you like this. Although they said they didn't have a problem with you, something must be up. But if they don't want to tell you, then there's nothing you can do. Whenever your friend isn't around, don't hang with them. You deserve friends who will treat you better than this. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Since the new school year started, I feel as though i've almost become a third-wheel. One of my friends is moving soon and we've all been kind of sad about it. There's four of us that all usually hang out together. Only one of these four has a class with me and over the year we've become better friends. But I feel like my other two friends almost don't treat me like they treat her. Sometimes they roll there eyes and all I say is hi. I feel almost as though they don't always want me there. They act different when our other friend is around they act nicer I guess. It kind of hurts my feeling. I don't know if its just the fact that they've all know each other since they were younger or what. I've tried asking them if there's anything wrong or if they're mad at me but they both say no. They weren't like this until this year and I wish I knew why. Any advice? Lynae P.

by GrassFairy on 1/25/2012 6:54:05 PM


this is going to sound really stupid but i am a sensitive person so this affected me...
so last summer i was riding my bike carrying my cousins new expensive laptop without his permission, and i accidentally went over a curb and fell and broke my foot and scratched up his laptop really bad, but didnt break it. his mom was really really mad at me and now i am paranoid that they are all really mad at me because they dont really talk to me. i always screw things up like this and i feel really bad and stupid. i am afraid that the incident will affect our relationship or come up in a conversation and it will just be really awkward. i am also afraid that i will ask to use his laptop to check my email or something and he will be like "oh well you broke it so im not letting you use it." yes this does sound really stupid but i just need help. thank you so much Smile



Hey girl!


People make mistakes, but it's when they get back up and stay positive that they get to places. Stay confident and impressively nice to them, and it can't hurt to apologize one more time and ask how his laptop is holding up. While it is not nice to take someone's stuff without asking, it is good to keep things in perspective that people are more important than things. And your cousin's mom most probably knows that, so sitting down and having a heart to heart about how sorry you are that you took his laptop without asking can also work wonders as both of you will reach an understanding and bond.

MOD! I need help!
I'm getting stressed out always, and its to the point were my back is aching sooooooooo mucg, and it hurts! Is it stress? How do i get rid of stress? HELP!!!


Hey girl,

Try having someone give you a back massage and see if it helps, and take some aspirin for the pain. If the pain continues, I would see a doctor. It could be stress-related, or it could be something else. To get rid of the stress, try doing an activity that relaxes you, like yoga.

I'm a bit shorter then a lot of my friends and they like to tease me about it. The other day at school i was standing with my friends before class and one of them mentioned how small i looked compared to the rest of them. this REALLY bothers me. this isn't the first time either. a couple weeks ago i was with my 2 friends and my friend asked if i had shrunk cause i looked really short compared to them. what do i do?

Hey girl,

Sorry your friends are being unkind -- if the teasing continues, maybe you should reconsider your friendship status with them. Have you talked to them about it? They may think they're being funny and not realize that their words are really bothering you! Tell them the problem, and if the teasing continues, talk to a teacher or guidance counselor at your school. And beauty comes in all sizes -- there are plenty of beautiful women who aren't tall!

If your parents do not allow you to go, there is probably a reason behind it. Its even worse if you lie to them. If you do, don't expect to play dumb with them. Soon enogh, they will find out and punish you. It's a whole lot more fun and less stressful if your parent said yes then lying and getting busted in the process.

by Kristina_195 on 12/9/2011 8:52:46 PM


mod- ok so please help- so i told my best friend i liked this guy and she told him that soemone in our grade liked him and then he kept guessing and she kept giving him hints even though i told her to not tell him. then he guessed me and i told her to lie and say that it wasn't me and so to resolve it she told him that she likes him and now he wants to go out with her. she also described me as fat to him so now he thinks of me as fat and likes her. what should i do about him and my friend? thanks and happy holidays!


Hey girl, oh no! I don't think your friend should date him since he's your crush. I would get my friend to tell him the truth and introduce you to him. That way everything will be cleared up and you two can talk. Hope this helps! Smile

by mocking❤jay on 11/25/2011 11:37:26 AM


I once omitted some details about where I was going to my parents and it didn't turn out well. I knew my parents would not want me to go so I did not tell them the whole truth. They never found out where I tried to go. However it turned out to be a complete disaster. I don't totally regret going because I learned a valueable lesson: if there is somewhere that your parents would not let you go, there is probably a good reason.

by BehrendBlues on 11/14/2011 12:02:39 AM


MOD!I have a BIG PROMBLEM my BFF is super mad at me and is telling my BF i cheated on him and i didn't. She called me a slut and said dudes only date me cause they fell sorry for me?! She called the cops on me event though she got the ticket and got me one too. Sure the fine was only 50 dollars i still don't think its right. If she apologizes should i forgive her?


Hey girly, if I were you I wouldn't forgive her. Best friends never do things like this to each other even when they are really angry. Why would a friend ever call the cops on you? I would be done with her if I were you girl. Smile Smile

Don't lie to your parents if they don't want u to go dont go! I learned that the hard way a few years ago my friend was throwing a 'homie' party my parent knew that she was a bad kid and all thay said i cant go but my friend said i should say im going to the 'mall' and go anyway and i thought that if i did that i would be consideres a 'cool' kid I went to the party and there was drinking no parental supervision and all the girls were half dresses u regret going cause when i got home my mom noticed i was kinda late it was about midnight and the mall closed at 8 so I would say trust your parents and DON'T GO!

by lovingcaringsocial on 11/5/2011 5:55:47 PM



okay so im a freshman this year and i was going to a high school that no one else from my old school would go. I used to be bullied and beat up in middle school so that's why i made sure to go to this school so i would have a new start. I knew two girls from other schools so i made sure to build up my friendships with them because one knew a lot of people and one was a cheerleader. I was in the popular group and everything was perfect for a month. But then they all started to like turn on me by like excludidng me from partys and football games. Now they hardly talk to me and it absoultuely kills me. Ive talked to counselors and theyve said to rely on my other friends and to leave the other girls. But part of me can't let go and it's ruining my highschool experience. Please help...i don't what or how to do whatever i ned to do.

by RainKisses on 11/5/2011 3:50:43 PM


MOD!!(: So I'm bi, and I have a HUGE crush on one of my friends. Somebody told me I should just tell her that I like her, but I have no clue what to say. Plus, she's straight, but I already know that she doesn't have a problem with gay or bi people. Please help! It bothers me so much that she doesn't know how I feel.

Hey girlie,

She might not have a problem with gay or bi people (which is awesome - so glad she is tolerant!) but, if she's totally straight and not bi herself, the fact that you like her still might be a lil uncomfy. It's just like if a guy or girl had a crush on you but you didn't like them back - you'd feel awkward, like you didn't want to hurt them but you also didn't want to lead them on. So try to get a vibe from her right now. Are you sure she's 100% straight? If so, I would probably try to channel that crush energy into other things so you don't make her feel weird. (A journal, a workout, an art project, etc.) It's not worth ruining your friendship if dating her will never happen, ya know? Some people are pretty set in their sexual orientation so try to figure that out before you make any big decisions <3

by applea123 on 10/25/2011 10:29:35 PM


Two words: DON'T GO!! If your parents don't want you to go, and your gut tells you that its wrong, then its probably not a very good idea to go. Friends shouldn't force you to lie to your parents, at least not true friends. It just isn't right. DOn't listen to her!!

by taylorswiftlover101 on 10/20/2011 10:49:42 PM


I wouldnt lie but I know it may be hard not going but if you do think things will be getting 'wild' you may not want to be around anyway, but then again it may be good gossip at school.

Honesty is always the best but I hid me having a bf from my parents because I knew they would not have approved. But use your own judgement, maybe your mom will let you go.

by luckykel on 10/19/2011 4:18:43 PM


I'd go

I wouldn't go. I wouldn't risk it.
On the other hand, handing out candy to little kids dressed all adorable seems kinda fun. I've never done it, because I live out in the country. :/ But I bet it would be fun!

by indesicive1 on 10/18/2011 5:44:12 PM
