-Hey Springster, I'm A 16 Years Old Girl. My Problem is Me & My Mom Can't Really Communicate Like other parents do with their children. I have a boyfriend and My Mom knows, but she doesn't approve it. The thing is I Love this guy😭 and have been dating for 2 years now. We've tried to breakup for the sake of my own safety because my mom keeps hitting me every time she see me with him, but we always find ourselves together again. Now, we've been dating in a secret because I'm scared if my mom finds out that we're still dating, she'd hit me. I want to tell Mom that me & my boyfriend love each other and I don't want to break up with him but I'm scared that she'll hit me & she's always furious. Please help me, how do I approach my Mom with this matter?😭💔

Hey Katsow, thank you so much for reaching out to us with your story. Communicating with your parents is really important, but if you find that you are unable to do so then there are always other adults that you can approach. Your biological parents don't always have to be the only people you can speak to. See if you can find another trusted adult like an aunt, grandmother, or teacher that you can talk to. Please do not be afraid to ask for help if you need it. Childline SA counselors are really great people to call when you are in need of help. They offer 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, feel alone and if something is happening to you, or someone you know. They are here to help you! Don't forget you can contact them on their 24/7 Toll Free Helpline: 08 000 55 555 for help.

Hello girls,I'm a 15 year old girl and my mom just found out that I'm dating and so my mom wants me to start preventing myself from getting pregnant. When I told my bestfriend this she said that I must not agree to do it because it'll seem like my mom is allowing me to sleep around with guys,but I think that it's better safe than sorry. Any advice on what to do?I really don't to lose my bestie

Hi Springster, the only way to see if this is a possibility is for you to go and talk to your baby mama and tell her why and how much you want her in your life. Be honest about how you feel about her and the relationship altogether.

Hey Yanzo, we're really sorry that you had to go through something as hard as losing your mother. We can only imagine how difficult this was and probably still is for you. Please do consider speaking to another trusted adult though. It's important that you discuss and go through the feelings of loss and mourning and it's also really important for you to talk to someone about any struggles you might be going through as a LGBTQI individual. We know that this may be difficult, but please remember to always stay true to yourself and never change who you are for others. As people we shouldn't have to suffer because of who you love. Talk to a trusted adult like a teacher or a relative or otherwise you can also call the counsellors from the Gay and Lesbian Network Helpline. They are available Friday to Sunday, 18:00 to 22:00 and you can contact them on their National Hotline: 0 8 6 0 3 3 3 3 31
