Advice of being alone

Hi, I have this really BIG fear of being left alone in the car without an adult, like if one of my parents needs/wants to stop at the store for something really fast they usually leave me and my sister alone in the car and when ever they do I start to feel really really scared and I ALWAYS feel like I really have to use the bathroom and then when my mom or dad come back from the store all those scary feelings go away and I just don't know what to do because my dad says that I might be even more scared of being alone without an adult (an adult that I know not a stranger) because one time my dad left me alone really far away from the enterace to the store it was Target and I don't know why I was really stupid and I got out of the car to put my gum in the trash and the car alarm went off and it was really loud and I don't usually like to draw lots of attention to myself and I was so scared cuz I did not have the keys to turn the alarm off or anything and I could not get back in the car cuz the alarm might go off again so I just stood there for like 20 mins by myself

 

i really need some advice PLEASE help me it would mean the world

  • I used to have that fear. I usually bring a book with me or some activity to do. If I forget to do that then I sing to myself.
    • But yep, thanks!!!
    • Thanks a lot ! But one other thing is that I don’t want people so see me in the car, I’m not sure why but I am afraid of them asking me why I’m there
      • I FEEL THAT SO MUCH! I always get totally worried that someone will ask that! Reading on the floor of the car might look totally strange, but it helps since you feel safer :)
        • Yes I ssoooo understand but my sister, she’s 4 I can’t really like unbuckle her but other people can see her through the window
          • hmmm...that's kind of tricky. Maybe ask your parents if she can be unbuckled before they leave the car? Me and my sister used to play a game whenever we were in the car called angels (i tried to teach her the word enemy but she said it wrong xD). Basically you duck down so everyone outside of the car (the "angels") can't see you. It kind of adds humor to the situation xD
            • Yes thank you!
              I hope this works but the funny thing is that talking about it is SOO much different then actually DOING it

How to Talk to Your Crush

I have a crush on somebody, and I really like them. I want to tell them that I have a crush on them, but I’m worried they won’t like me back and I won’t even be able to be friends with them. What should I do? -Anonymous Your not alone anon, that’s a fear everyone has when they have crush- and it makes sense!

Sleeping Over at a Friend's House

When I get invited to sleepover parties, I always end up wanting to go home before bed. Now that I am a rising 8th grader, I am starting to worry that my friends may find it babyish that I can't spend the night. Any advice? -Anonymous      I’ve had experience with this same problem before! When I used to often have sleepovers with my friends, I’d nearly always call my mom to pick me up when it came time to go to sleep.
