Tea, Anyone?

Excuse the title. Hi! This message board is dedicating to opinions. Basically, how this works is one person comments any topic -- elephants, art, makeup, Donald Trump -- and then anyone (and everyone) else replies their personal opinions on that matter. This should spark some deep conversation as well as friendly chitchat.

Enjoy!

  • Crushes?
  • Parents reading their children’s texts, and emails?
    • If the parent is clear and tells child that they'll be checking it from the start it's okay. If the child doesn't know it's not okay. But then again, I know my parents can (although I don't think they do it often) but it makes me kind of uncomfortable to think about, so I don't really know...

      Not okay, at all. It's a huge invasion of privacy, and it can cause serious trust issues. Not to mention that it might put someone in a hard spot, if (for example) they're closeted, and the only safe space for them is texting with friends. Or if they're struggling with mental health problems and need advice from friends. Or even if they just need to vent about their parents for a bit. If you don't trust your kids that much, don't let them have a computer or phone.
    • I don't like it. My parents do it, and it feels invasive.
    • I think it’s extremely invasive and disrespectful of privacy. I know it’s usually to protect the kid but if they’re sensible they’ll come to you if something’s wrong.
      all my emails are set up to be forwarded to my mom, which is why I barely use email lol. I mean I was ten when we set up my account so it makes sense in that regard but I guess I just never worked up the courage to ask her if we could change the setting.
    • Not okay. It’s invasive and it destroys the relationship.

Keeping in Touch with Friends: Social Distancing and Different Interests

I have been quite lonely during this whole lockdown experience because of covid-19, but I have been especially missing one of my friends ( I'll call her MB). I haven't seen her since like the very beginning of Jan. 2020!!!! that's 6 months, half a year (like whaaa????). She is the only friend that I am still (barely) in contact with from my primary school, and she goes to a different secondary school from me which can be quite hard. I just really want to keep in contact and meet up as much as…

Siblings Not Wanting To Hangout With You

Lately I feel like my brother would rather read then hang out with me. Now it might not seem that big, but, to me it is. We have a very close relationship for siblings and I miss playing with him. I know I'm overreacting but it feels like all he wants to do is read and draw and play Minecraft. -Anonymous   Hi there!  I’m sorry you’re feeling this way. I understand what it’s like, and it can really hurt. Everyone changes, hits puberty, and develops at different times. Part of it could be that…

Supporting An LGBTQ+ Sibling

How can I support my Lgbtq+ sister going through puberty and in social situations? -Anonymous Hello there!  This is a very good question, and I hope my advice is helpful to you <3  The main thing is: Be there for her. If she has questions, do your best to answer them. If she needs a listening ear, or a big hug, sit there and let her talk, or supply said hug. Just simple things like that can go a long way, even if it doesn't seem like it. And don't judge her, or say her questions are silly, or…

Coming Out To Family

How do I come out to family? -Anonymous Hi there! This is a loaded question that has many different answers, because everyone's family situation is different. Before you come out to a family member, the biggest thing to consider is: Is your family homophopbic? If the answer is 'yes' or 'I don't know', then you should definitely think really hard about how you want to come out, and make sure you have a backup plan in case things don't go so well. If you're coming out in a maybe-iffy environment,…
