I feel left out of Dad's life

My dad's spending more time with his GF than with me...

Im really shy when it comes to big groups.And I'll be going to high school next year. I know it's summer break and I really shouldn't be worried about it but it's bugging me. Every time I would have to present something in front of my class mates my voice would get quiet and it would start cracking. I know I sound terrible when I talk since one of my friends asked me if I was okay since it sounded like I was crying. It's so embarassing. I just wanna know how I could fix my problem.

Hey girlie,

Nah, we totally understand why you're thinking about it already - high school can seem scary at first! But luckily, it's totally common (almost everyone goes to high school!) so we have lots of articles to help ya. First, check out this awesome letter from the editor, Karen, about the first day of school. It can help to keep these things in mind because they make each day so much more fun! You should also remember that being nervous at first is standard - if you WEREN'T a little nervous, we'd be worried about ya! ;) But once you get there, you'll figure out your locker combo, where your classes are, where to sit for lunch, what your teachers are like, etc. Each day, it will get easier!!

And check out this article for help with the public speaking jitters. Again, completely normal! But there are ways to get more confidence and overcome those nerves - so read on Smile

mod mod mod!!!!
My mom won't let me get a cell phone until i'm 16!!!!!How can I convince her to get me a cell phone!

Hey girl!

You're definitely not alone in this situation. There's lots parents who won't let their kids get phones until a certain age. Think about a couple reasons why you want a cell phone. List the practical reasons (like being able to communicate during emergencies or calling if you need a ride home) as well as the other reasons (like being able to text or snap photos). Calmly explain these reasons to your mom in a mature way. You also need to show her that you're responsible and that your phone won't interfere with your school work or other obligations. If she doesn't give in, maybe you could negotiate an age to get a phone between how old you are now and 16.

My parents are getting a divorce and want me to choose between them. I want to go with my mom but I don't know if that will hurt my dad?? Please help.


hey! I'm sorry that your parents are making you choose between them in their divorce; I think that puts a lot of unfair pressure on you. Since they are making you choose, if you want to live with your mom, then do it. This will affect a big part of your life, so you should do what you want to. Your dad will be ok with that.

I feel your pain. My dads remarried, has a new baby..and really a new LIFE..that my sister and I really don't fit into anymore. But I'm not that close to him anyway..I never was I've always been WAYYYYY closer to my mom and my sis sorta bonded more with my dad. So it doesn't bother me to much but it does suck i know

MOD MOD MOD big problem with my dad hes a good dad and all but he works alot and because of school i never see him and i get lonely. At School i was always alone and i only had one friend so i broke the rules of my dad and went out for lunch with my only friend because i couldnt take always being alone and by myself ( She goes out for lunch and i stay at the school because my dad wont let me go out 4 lunch) but because noone really likes me but for her i went out for lunch with her and my dad found out and he HATES me now, he wont take my side of the story he just kept yelling at me and calling me names like (Loser, Liar, Descraceful,) And i cant take it whenever i do a worng he yells and wont listen to me i dont know what to do!

Hey babe,

I promise you he definitely doesn't hate you.  It's likely that he just feels betrayed by your decision, like you just didn't care.  You need to talk with him about it.  If you sit him down and talk calmly, he should get less aggressive about the situation as long as you remain calm.  You should try your best to apologize, keep in mind how he probably feels, and make sure he knows why  you did what you did.

This summer is going to take a nose-dive.
1. My stepdad is coming next Wednesday to stay, AGAIN.(Let's just say the first time was a total crash-course.)It's going to be so awkward. Last summer he gave me a 10:00 P.M. bedtime! >Frown I'm one year older and this time, I hope I DON'T get a bed time.
2. My mom is getting married on the first week of July,I'm only attending the after-party and we went dress shopping for me. We got this cute dress but, the only problem is, we already bought it and it came to the knee. My soon-to-be-stepdad doesn't like that. And he said, "No Heels" so I have to return my shoes.
3. I'm going to lose alot of fun priveleges that I have. like, no blasting music and singing off-key along, no more staying up late drawing,going to the pool without some sort of "lesson" and, Cry no more time on the computer/T.V.!
4. Back to school shopping will be a nightmare!
5. This year, I'm starting middle school. He's going to make it so difficult.

Hey girl,

Adjusting to a new adult in the family is never easy, but your stepdad probably just has those rules because he cares about you! Try finding some of the positive things about him and getting to know him better. If your mom likes him, there must be some awesome stuff about him Smile

heyy gurls!! I need advice! I like a guy lets call him S so I like S I think he likes me but I've only known him for a couple weeks but he's realyyy smart!Smile But we only see each other at swim lessons and they have 2 weeks leftFrown so I need a way to keep in touch with him! I'm not sure if he has a phone(I have one) or a facebook(I dont have oneSmile) we could see if our swim teacher could teach us on weekends for becoming a swim teacherSmile

Hey girl,

If you want to ask him for his phone number to stay in touch, that's not weird at all! If he doesn't have a cell phone, you could always talk to him on his home phone, too. It isn't weird to ask, you aren't asking him out but it will still give you a way to chat over the summer. Good luck!
