The point is: you asked a question because you didn't understand, if that question makes everyone laugh then well done! Not everyone has that gift to make a dull moment in class fun- if you have the gift then use it.

But sometimes it's so difficult to raise your hand in class all the Times as people end up giving you names such as 'Miss too goody too shoes'

Hi Mphoentle24. Thanks for your comment. Never be embarrassed about how smart you are or if people think you're trying to be a teachers pet. Work hard and don't worry about what other people say.

I am a lesbain too(Femme), I can't tell my parents because they are against but Im happy where I am but the problem is how will I handle them when their find out that I'm a lesbain??

Hi Springster, thanks for your comment. You don't have to come out to your parents if you don't feel ready. Telling them that you are a lesbian is a personal decision that you don't have to make if you feel uncomfortable. When you are completely ready then you can tell them in any way that you feel fit. Good luck Springster.

Hi, a lot of the time I've realized that boys are attracted to girls who have big butts and breasts. It wasn't a problem until I got to highschool and everyone called me thin and really hurt my feelings. I have however learned to love my body because it's still developing. What exercises can I do to give my body a great shape?

Hi. To give your body a great shape you can do various exercises such as squats: which will give your butt a great shape.Lundges: which tighten up your thigh muscles. Sit-ups for a flat great looking stomach. Leg raises for your stomach and hip lining too.

Hi Raven, thank you for your comment. There is no one body type that is better than the other. You should look in the mirror and see how wonderful, awesome and beautiful you are. If you want to exercise for your health, there are many easy exercises that you can do like brisk walking. Be safe when walking outside though and always tell those at home where you are going.

Hi Nomhle, thank you for your comment. To whiten your teeth, you can try brushing with a mixture of bicarbonate of soda and lemon before brushing with your normal toothpaste. Remember though that true beauty comes from the inside. You can read articles under our confidence tag to help boost your confidence and self-esteem. Good luck Springster!

Hi I struggle with self esteem because of the way I look. I have terrible acne and it's been like this for most of my life. I can't be in a crowd of people and I don't like being out in public.

Hi MisokaSosoh. Thanks for sharing your comment. It must be very difficult for you but there are places you can seek help. Ask your parents if you can visit your GP or a dermatologist to recommend what could help clear your skin. This is curable. For now increase your water intake and eat less sugary and oily foods! You'll be fine. Good luck!

✨Hi I’ve got very sensitive skin so any dirt that comes in contact with my face causes acne .. the cheapest products always work . I’ve been using gentle magic and also my dr put me on contraceptives for 6 months which really cleared up my acne .. at first for the first month the acne gets worse but as the months progress you do see amazing results especially if you use gentle magic alongside the contraceptive pills also water does wonders and always exfoliate your skin so the dirt can be removed ..

Hi Noluthandovuyo117. Thank you for your comment. It must be a very difficult time for you but you're not alone. There are people and places where you can seek help. Have you thought about talking to a parent, teacher or professional for support? Often, being lonely makes you want to withdraw even more, but there could be people trying to reach out to you. Slowly gather supportive friends and loving people around you. Having people in your life that you can talk to will help you cope with your disappointment, loss, loneliness or sadness. And over time, you will start to trust people again.Sadly, we can't talk to you directly but you can call Childline SA. They will offer you counselling over the phone, in person and online. You don't need to give them your name and can contact them any time of the day or night. Contact them if you are scared, depressed or feel alone. They are here to help you!

Hi Springster. Thank you for your comment. He sounds very selfish and unconcerned about your feelings. Let him be with your ex friend. You'll find a guy that can treat you the way you deserve to be treated. Focus on your goals and bettering yourself. He'll regret it in no time and by then you'll be over him. Good luck!

Hi Springster. Thanks for your comment. Love means respect, loyalty and honesty. Your boyfriend is unable to show you these traits when you fight. I would advise that you not give him the choice of whether your relationship is over or not but decide for yourself if you're still happy and if you want to be in an unhealthy relationship. You're still young and can still find someone who loves and respects you or focus on your goals while you're single. Good luck!
