End of the Nine Weeks
By Ashlee and Ambria
Q: I'm having some trouble at home with my parents. I'm always arguing with my step mom and I feel like she may not like me. What should I do?
A: You should talk to them about how you feel. Maybe talk to your stepmom in private. I suggest you take days that you and she could bond. I hope everything turns out well!
Q: I am playing football for the school, but I have a passion for music. I don't want to quit and lose friends, but I really love music. Should I follow my passion and go with the band or do what my friends want?
A: Don't be scared to be yourself! If your friends were real friends, they would stay with you no matter what. Plus, if you follow your passion with music, you would make new friends. Have fun and enjoy your high school years!
Q: If you hear someone spreading a rumor about you, and your boyfriend breaks up with you because of it, what should you do?
A: Confront the person who started the rumor and talk to them about it. If they aren't willing to fix the problem, go to Mrs. Merry, or someone who could help. Don't make things worse. Talk to your boyfriend about it also. Explain yourself. I hope things get worked out!
