How to cope with living in an orphanage?

in

I'm being sent to an orphanage temporarily because my mother is living with my aunt and she has things to do in court, so I'm being sent to an orphanage home for three months. I don't know what it's like in there but I've heard rumors about demented care takers and children going mental. I don't know how to believe this (and its probably not true anyway). Can anyone help me? How do I cope and keep my sanity?

Answer: 
You go with an open mind rather than relying on rumors. And you probably will make very good friends there. Most will be very jealous of your situation because you will be returning to your Mom.

How to convince my mom to put me on medication?

in

I am 17 and I have social anxiety. I over-think everything I do and I get migraines and my stomach hurts when I get invited to parties or something. I only have 2 best friends, with a few acquaintances. It is to the point where I over-analyze so much that I cry every day. My mom said she doesn't want me on anxiety pills because she thinks it isn't good for me. But I feel like it would help me relax. Is that bad? What do I do?

Answer: 
Medication won't solve the problem. I would suggest a change in diet: stay away from anything high in sugars, soda, etc. Also practicing yoga helped me get rid of my anxiety. Do some research and try to find alternatives to medication. Meds usually just add more side affects and symptoms and don't actually address the problem.

How to tell my parents about my suicidal thoughts?

in

Everyday now, the thought of overdosing seems more and more tempting, and sometimes I even find myself in the bathroom will a pill bottle in my hand.

I self-harm a lot, and I know I need to stop, I need to be normal.
I just don't know how to tell them, I skipped school today to try and figure out how to tell them.

I was just going to tell my mother, and see what happens from there.

I need help.

Answer: 
Honey, you need to tell someone NOW! If you're not sure about telling your parents, tell another adult you trust. A teacher, neighbour, friend's parent, a help hotline, someone. Well done for recognising that you need help, now please go speak to someone today.

How to have a better relationship with my parents and family?

in

Often times I find myself yelling at my parents or little brother. Me and my parents argue a lot, and I don't know why. Sometimes it's difficult for me to control my tone of voice when I speak, I'm 15 years old and I want to have a better relationship with my parents and brother. How can I do this? What do you guys reccommend? I realize I sometimes make mistakes, but then they get real angry at me for raising my voice at them and yelling. Any tips would be appreciated, thank you.

Answer: 
Talk to them and tell them how you really feel, alotta kids feel like that as teens but never talk about it, don't even always know why we feel tht way but some just hold it all in and just live with that inside and that's not good bcuz we just get angrier and grow up like that. Write a letter if yu need to but just do it, , dont forget to be real don't back away from them. You can do it.

How to convince my dad to let me get an iphone?

in

Okay, so I really want an iphone. How do I convince my dad to let me get one? He won't even let me get a regular phone so your responses should be really good please! My mom says that she would actually like me to have one because I stay after school for sports almost ever day of the week. But my dad says that I don't need one. He won't change his mind. I really need help! PLEAS PLEASE PLEASE!
Thanks!
Thanks so much! I'll try all of your suggestions!

Answer: 
Get a part time job and tell him you will pay for half of it. IPhones are expensive. The phone itself is several hundred dollars and monthly plans start at $80. There are lots of adults who work full time who don't want to buy an Iphone for themselves because of the sheer cost. If you are old enough to get a job then talk to him about getting one if you help contribute to the cost. It will show him you are responsible enough to have IPhone if you get a job and set aside some money to help pay for one. You have to earn it. If you aren't old enough to work part time then my best advice is to wait until you are.

How to recieve a package without my parents knowing?

in

I have a friend who lives across the country she's sending me some stuff for my birthday. She's a bit older than me and my parents are the strict type who wouldnt want me to be friends with someone a few years older than me. I'm usually the one who gets home first and the mail man comes around 1-3, I get home at 4.

Answer: 
Might or might not work - I suggest you really would be better off with the use fo friends address or use General Delivery - General Delivery is sent to the post office in your town that does this - in many towns there is only one post office but in a large city there are several and usually only one does general delivery so you must check on the details. General Delivery is mail sent to a post office that is held at the pick up window for usually for 30 days for pick up - you will need some form of photo ID to claim mail
