How do I convince my parents to let me go to a sleep away camp and they wont let me go because they are worried about me but I really want to go?

  • All legitimate camps have counselors to keep the kids safe and well looked after. Get the counselor to phone your parents and perhaps visit them at your home to explain what the camp is like and what the rules of that camp are and this may change your parent's mind. If you cannot do that then if one or more of your friends are going have their parents phone your parents. Many parents hear a lot more horror stories about camps than you will ever hear at your age and you are lucky they care enough to keep you safe because they love you.

What if your at summer camp and get your first period?

There are several things you can do.

  • If you think you are close to starting take things with you just in case. Pack a pad in a zipper bag, take a few aspirin in case you have cramps, and take a heating pad for cramps as well.
  • If you don't have things with you find a female camp advisor and ask her for help.
  • A camp should have a nurse on staff so find her for help
  • Make a friend with an older girl and go to her for help.

Teen Dating
Summer Camp

What do I do my boyfriend won't commit after 6 years of dating says it takes too much effort He says he loves me and will live with me forever but won't marry mewhat is this?

This is committment phobia and having the milk without milking the cow. If after 6 years he wont committ and how dare he say it takes too much effort. Trying to loose 200 pounds takes alot of effort, being yourself and loving someone doesnt take much at all. Sounds like your relationship is onesided, that its his way or no way. This is up to you, 6 years is a long time to throw away but its also 6 years of wasted time because he wasnt thinking of the futures long haul. Its up to you if you want to remain in this relationship, he will keep going with the status quo and that's good for him but is that what you want? You have the right to be happy and have the things you want and need out of a relationship and a "man". Sit down and let him know that a stronger committment needs to be made on his part or you will consider moving on. See if he will start slow and become engaged and then within a years time marry. If not you have your answer........

How do you keep a 13 year old out of trouble this summer?

* Get them into sports of some sort. Keep 'em busy! Allow him to have friends over and have a movie night and you can cook up some goodies for them (but leave them alone after that.) If you can afford it go on a small trip as a family and have fun (keeping in mind that you ask your son what his idea of fun is and if it sounds OK do it!) Keeping house rules is important such as chores, a curfew (set a time when your son should be home) and interaction with their peers is a must. I live in Canada and the kids are into soccer and baseball right now. Surprise your son and perhaps take him to a concert where one of his favorite singing groups are playing at. Bring the ear plugs!

* Plan to go on a great vacation or have him/her invite a couple of friends to go to a theme park or the beach or do a movie night with friends!

Childcare and Babysitting
Summer Camp

Is it usual a female babysitter bath teen boys?

I don't know how common it is for a female babysitter to bathe a teenage boy, but I know it does occur. I have a close friend that used to babysit and when she was 17 she was asked to bathe a 13 yo boy that she had been sitting for. She bathed him more than once. I have bathed boys that I sat for as old as 9.

Yes. It is usual. My mother used to bath my older brother till 16 or 17 years old, mainly because he suffered of phymosis ( uncircumcised penis ) and needed a very good cleaning of his foreskin. When she couldn't do it, that job was done by a female babysitter, who took care of us.

What a bunch of nonsense, if a babysitter of any sex bathes a teenager of any sex it is called child abuse, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, snild molestation, aggravated assault of a minor, and a host of other crimes. This foreskin nonsensical is just that , nonsense. They don't need cleaning by someone else, or anyone else for that matter. The poser of this question is in all probability a demented, socially inept, outcast with a very active imagination. Just remember this babysitters, if your stupid enough to listen to this tripe, child abuse and endangerment charges do not go away and offenders like this are hated in the prisons. Not a pretty way to spend a lot of your life!!!!

Why Christian pray to Jesus?

Christians, true followers of Jesus, pray to his Father, Jehovah God. They do not pray to Jesus because he is not the Almighty God. Jesus prayed to Jehovah when he was on the earth and he referred to Jehovah as his God in Revelation 3:12 states, “‘The one who conquers—I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will by no means go out from it anymore, and I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the New Jerusalem that descends out of heaven from my God, and my own new name. ”
