Relationship Advice for Kids and Teens

Dulcinea's Insight

  • The great thing about the Internet is that it offers you privacy when you're trying to find advice. Sometimes, though, there are problems (such as cases of abuse) where you'll be much better off talking to a professional for help. Boys Town National Hotline is a service that provides both girls and boys with someone to talk to.
  • Popular magazines like Girls' Life and Seventeen have message boards and forums to submit advice requests online. 
  • Internet safety is very important. If you ask questions on a Web site message board, choose a nickname and don't give too many details about yourself online to protect your identity.
