How much room do you have on those pages. Can you post a sreenshot to have an idea.
Do you make your spacing with double return in any kind, which is a no-go and has to be avoided at any way? Or do you use space before and after, which is the correct way to work with spacing?
Do you work with paragraph styles? Did you observe space before and after?
Do you work with character styles or do you manual formatting which has to be avoided?
Did you set up your text frames with object styles as you should do?
Do you use the baseline grid? Which is good to use, but will reduce the ability to align always text vertically, especially if you try to avoid nephews and widows (in German "Schusterjungen und Hurenkinder" which sounds obscene but is the correct term).

FYI, in English, we say orphans and widows.
Thanks, I knew it, but early in the morning,before 6 AM, I exchange some things.
Hmm...I guess I havent done any of those things. I've been using soft returns for the whole document and treating it like a doc in MS word. I guess I should learn some more about paragraph styles and such
Here are my screen shots. The first one shows the text I am trying to move up into the space shown by just pressing backspace. The second shot shows the text that automatically moves up when I backspace the 1st page. This is probably super easy, but I'm a noob.
Your screen shots are too small to recognize anything. And if you add a screen shot, turn on invisible characters before.
By moving the text up, are you trying to make room to insert an image?
It's also a good idea to learn the basics of Indesign. Indesign CC Visual QuickStart Guide by Sandee Cohen is usually recommended as the best. There's also Lynda.com for video tutorials.
