Hi I’m a 17 year old girl who finished high school ages ago. Me a my little sister have a lot of dolls and my best friend suggested we do a yard sale and I think that’s a good idea. I told my little sister that we get rid of the ones we don’t want and keep the ones we like. When I told my mum she said that we should get rid of all of them because we are getting too old and that we don’t use them. Me and my little sister hate that idea. I’m not sure what to do.

I’m sorry if this is the sort of help for this place but I didn’t know what else to do


First, I would like to thank you for having the courage to share your story with TeenCentral community. Be proud of yourself for reaching out for help.

Take this time to maybe talk to your mom about this and how you feel about giving them all away. Its a great way to have a positive conversation with a trusted adult .


Making hard decisions is never easy. Big or small decisions can be a very difficult process and it is something that you will have to do your whole life. Here on TeenCentral we have a tool that can help you make the best decision for YOU! Go to the top of the web page and look for TOOLS then look for “Making Hard Decisions” and use that tool to help you find what your answer is. Have your sister do the same. It can even help you to decide which dolls to keep and which to sale (if that is what you decide). This can even help show your mum that you are making decisions in a constructive way and have reasons for your choices.

Again, thank you for reaching out to TeenCentral, I hope you make the best decision for you! Have faith you know what is right for you!
