If a girl is being blackmailed

via St. Georges International UN Model Club in Cologne

Are you being blackmailed? Is someone demanding money or special favors from you because they are holding something potentially damaging against you? 
The greatest power you can give someone who is blackmailing is by giving in to their demand; they may promise to get rid of the damaging information they know about you but you cannot be sure that they will not use it to take advantage of you.
So what do you do if you are being blackmailed? The most redeeming thing to do is to come clean about your actions. By revealing the truth before the blackmailer does so, leaves them without power over you. 
If you do not have enough confidence to come clean of whatever it is that you did, then collect evidence that you are being blackmailed; record the audio, video or emails which show that you are being blackmailed, do not give in to the blackmail and if your blackmailer exposes you, you can possibly sue them for blackmail.

If a girl has trouble falling asleep

The first thing you must do if you have trouble sleeping to make sure that your room is conducive for sleep. Check that the temperature is balanced, not too hot and yet not cold either. Then make sure that your bed spread and bed sheets are clean and comfortable and your pillow just right.

If a girl is going to a party

By Faith Allen via UN Volunteers

We all have attended a party one time or another in our life.  Here are some tips to keep in mind for your next party.
The three questions you should have answered before going to any party is: What is the party about? Who else will be at the party? Is it important for you to be at the party?
Be selective of the parties you go to. Make sure the party you select is one that will encourage your personal , career or social growth. If a party is not beneficial to you and may lead you to spend money recklessly or even put your life in danger, consider not going.
Once you are at a party, determine whether you are going to eat or drink anything. It is always important to keep an eye on where your food and drink comes from. This will not only allow you to see if the food was prepared in a clean environment but it will also prevent anyone from putting a drug into your drink.
Always let someone know where you are going. If possible, take a trusted friend with you esp…
