Violence on TV freaks me out

My parents watch a bunch of crime shows like Law and Order, NCIS and CSI. I have a feeling they’re affecting me. I imagine violence...

OMG this is totally me. I'm convinced people are going to stab me. I can't walk into garage without somebody lol. I'm weird like that. I'm not scared when I'm with somebody, just alone

I'm normally okay, but my dad watches alot of gory stuff and crime stuff on our projector, and he always has the volume way up, so while i'm in here on the computer, i have to listen to the sound of blood and guts, and gunshots o_o it gets annoying after a while lolz

So I have a friend who is depressed and fickle. She is a good person but she's very troubled and has talked about suicide for a while. She thinks hitting people is a good way to greet them and talks about killing people she doesn't like. I have been trying to help her but nothing is working! HELP!

Hey girl, that sounds like some serious stuff.  While it is really great that you've been trying to help your friend, it is definitely not your responsibility to help her work through all her issues.  Encourage her to speak with a guidance counselor at school.  Consult this page for helpful resources.  Also, don't hesitate to speak with an adult you trust about your friend, like a parent or a guidance counselor at school.

HELP!! I'm really new here so i don't really know how this whole advice things goes so i'm really really sorry if this isn't the place where you ask for advice about ur own problems... but i REALLY need help!! So i have this guy friend but everyone thinks he is kind of weird because he likes one direction and stuff like that. But recently i've been dreaming about him... like every single night! And i think i might actually be falling in love with him... Does it really matter what other people think though? i was thinking tht maybe we could have a secret relationship but who am i kidding, that never works. please help. Thanks! Smile

My best friend recently told me a big secret and I don't know if I will be able to treat her the same as before. What should I do?!?!


hey! you have to talk to her about your feelings, based on her reaction and how sorry she is, you can re-evaluate your friendship and see if she really is a true pal.

by alindgren on 1/14/2013 7:02:15 PM


MOD MOD MOD!!!!!!!I'm so upset. I'm pretty sure that when someone told me that, that guy I used to like was gay I was being lied to as a ploy to get me over him. and now I think he's after some girl.I don't like him anymore but I'm so upset that someone would lie. and yeah were friends we don't even talk in school he dosent even look me in the eye when we pass each other in the hallway.the only we even text is if I text him first and I'm not sure what to do anymore

I'm sorry girl, but it doesn't seem like he likes you back. Maybe your friend was trying to protect you from getting hurt! Who really know what either of them are doing, you can only know the real answers if you talk to both of them. Maybe you should talk to your friend first, she may know of something!

umm i have a question...i dont mean to be racist or whatever but i have a boyfriend and people make fun of us and say "why are u dating him/her..etc."and its because hes white and im black...why do people judge like that? why do people think its wrong for a black person to date a white person? *confused

by JenniferLUV on 1/13/2013 8:41:29 PM


My mom wont let me date because she says it will get to my head and my grades wont be good like they are now. I know it wont but she wont believe me. How can I convince her. Thanks. Please reply quickly.

Hey girlie,

I know it's hard, but try to understand where your mom is coming from. She's only saying that stuff because she loves you! You have so many more years to date, and school really is the most important part of your life right now! Maybe you and your mom can reach a compromise, like that you could have a study date with a guy you like. That way you will get to spend time with him while keeping your grades up! Try having a calm conversation with your mom to show your maturity, and don't raise your voice if she says no. And listen to her reasons, because they might be valid! If you can't make a compromise, do your best to respect her decision. You can always bring the topic up again after some time has passed. Good luck!

okay so im really mad at my bus driver
so me and my friends were being too loud so the bus driver said to me "ill go to your house and talk to your mom if you dont be quiet"
well we got in trouble again and he said the same thing i think its really sexist is it or am i over thinking
p.s. he's 79 if that helps

Hey girlie,

I don't think that sounds sexist at all! Bus drivers have a right to ask their passengers to follow the bus rules, including maintaining an appropriate noise level. He was saying that as a warning for you to be quiet, so try to be more respectful of him and the other passengers on your school bus next time you ride to school. Then he won't have to talk to your mom and everyone will enjoy the ride more! I would also thank him for the ride when you get off at your stop because that would probably make him happy and would show that you appreciate what he's doing for you Smile

Just stop watching them, I think its like anything else we watch, the more you watch it the more you think about it. I think some of the stuff they show is very gross, that is why I dont watch it all the time. I would rather watch something with hot guys in it than violence.

I keep this journal which i write down almost every single thing in my day, good or bad. But my older sister some how finds where i hid it and reads it. I've asked her to stop and even told my parents, but she doesn't give up! Writing how my day went helps me learn what i did wrong or right. How can i get her to stop reading my journal?


hey! if she absolutely won't stop, keep another journal and don't tell anyone about it, once she thinks you're not writing in your old one she may lose interest. good luck!

I am the same way with TV. Things I watch can really mess me up and find their way into my head in the worst way. So I make sure to only watch things that I'm going to be fine with having in my head and wont freak me out should try that. It's hard at first but then you realize how much happier you are without so many bad images and ideas in your head

That happened to me too, i just stopped watching it.

by Chrissy23 on 1/11/2013 10:58:58 PM


This has nothing to do with this topic btw. Okay so there's this boy I am in
L-O-V-E in. I only get to see him once a week on Monday's though :.( *sniff.* He's 2 years older than me, but I know people who are 5 years apart, so I don't think it's thattt bad. Anyways, my bday is in April & I really want him to go. He has an older brother who is 3 years older than me. I don't have his number, and I feel weird asking him... because we aren't that close. My mom & his mom are like friends. How can I get him to come to my bday? I don't wanna make things awkward when I see him again... Any ideas?

Hey girlie,

Two years doesn't sound like too much of a difference, but it can be a lot when you're younger! If you want him to come to your birthday party, that's not awkward since there will be other people there. You don't have to ask him as a date! And if you're friends, it won't be awkward to ask for his number as friends!

It is just where you take classes with other people (like your friends!), and there are after school clubs you can join, too. I would talk to your friends where you live to see what the schools near you are like!

Hey girl,

I think sugar would exfoliate your lips, which would make them softer after you wash the sugar off! You could also use a lip scrub. Don't forget to moisturize your lips with a lip balm afterward!

I also listen to music softly. any more ideas?


Hey StrawberryPatchKId, you could always try meditating. I've found that really helps me relax. You could even try laying down with the lights dimmed and your eyes closed, and imaging a place you'd like to be. For example, if you like beaches, imagine being on the beach when it's really pretty outside laying beneath the sun. Hope this helps! Xoxo

I have my first date this weekend. And it is to a sports mall. I do sports and enjoy them. I am kind of shy when it comes to talking to boys face to face, but for some reason in texting I'm fine! This guy and I send hearts to eat other etc. but tomorrow when I see him I'm afraid ill choke and won't know what to say. He's supposed to meet my parents. I'm scared ill get embarrassed and won't say anything during the date. Can you give me some tips so I won't choke and make a fool out of myself in front of him? Haha thanks! mailyse f.

I'm quite the opposite actually, I love those type of shows. Smile
But they're just meant for entertainment, and a lot of times people get captivated by crime and mystery, so that's why they focus on those things! But just keep in mind that real life isn't as dramatic as the shows portray. I agree, step away from the TV, and if it helps maybe bring a friend along with you wherever you're going - I'm sure it'll help get your mind off things. Smile

This is very common! Make sure to...

- Not look/sound nervous...just relax.

- Carry a conversation (ask him about his family, friends and activities).

- Don't talk too much, make sure you let him talk too!

- Be confident!
