Things to Think About When Getting Your Ears Pierced

EarringsAt some point, it seems like every little girl will start begging her parents to let her get her ears pierced.  Earrings may be pretty and fun, but there are some things that you should think about before getting your ears pierced.

1.  The risk of infection.  When you get your ears pierced, you are literally inserting something into your body.  The risk of infection is therefore somewhat higher than for a non-invasive procedure.  You need to keep your new piercings clean, and do exactly what they tell you in order to take care of them.

2.  Allergies.  If you are prone to allergies, you my react to earrings that are made out of cheaper or impure metal (gold, silver and platinum are usually safe).  If you react to earrings of a certain material, you will start reacting to bracelets, necklaces and rings made out of that same material as well.Earrings

3.  The risk that your holes may close.  Particularly for the first several months after piercing, your holes may start to close if you don’t wear earrings for long periods of time.

4.  Stretching.  If you wear heavy earrings, your skin may start to stretch, making your holes lopsided and unsightly.

If you want to get your ears pierced, have a long chat with Mom and Dad first.  Earrings can be fun, but make sure that you really want to holes in your ears for the rest of your life first.

Why You Should do Your Homework

Boy Doing HomeworkYes, we’re going to talk about that dreaded subject–homework, the bane of every kid’s existence.  As a kid, homework just seems like such a drag, a needless waste of time while you could be out shooting hoops with your buddies, or playing with your best friend’s new doll.  And we’ve all been there (even the adults who tell you otherwise), spending hours doing homework that can only be described as filler.   Well, I’m here to tell you that homework is good for you, and that it’s important for you to do your homework every night.

1.  It may seem like you have all the time in the world but, someday, you’re going to grow up and start living on your own.  Good study habits will serve you well for the rest of your life.  Start practicing now–it makes it easier later.

2.  Doing homework is an important part of both learning and getting good grades.  Getting good grades are important, because they determine what schools you can get into.  College admissions are competitive and, in the inter-cities, competition to get into even good elementary and high schools can be fierce.  Do yourself a favor–set yourself up on the road to success early.  Don’t wait until it’s too late.

3.  Learning is, or should be, fun.  Knowledge helps you navigate the world, and better understand other people.  So open those books, and get cracking–the sooner you start, the sooner that you’ll finish, and be able to go play with your friends.


Why Do You Need To Bundle Up?

Catching a cold is the last thing you want to do when you know you have to go to school 5 days a week.  Bundling up while it is still cold outside can help you stay healthy.  Just by remembering to put on a pair of gloves can you keep your nose from running.  What do your hands have to do with your nose?  Each body part contributes to the health of the inside of your body.  If your hands are constantly cold and open to bad weather then it can make you sick on the inside too.  Bundling up with scarves and hats is one of the best ways to prevent catching a cold.  If you do happen to catch an unwanted bug be sure to wash your hands a lot.  Use soap when you wash your hands and try not to touch anyone else.  You wouldn’t want any of your friends or family to get what you have!

Be Polite When Answering The Phone

Manners need to be practiced if you are going to be answering the phone in your house.  Never answer the phone and say, “Hey! What do you want?”  Be kind to the people that call your house.  “What do you want” is a great question, but not as soon as you answer the phone.  Use a line like, “Hello.  Who is calling, please?”  When the call is not for you simply say, “Hold one minute, please.”  This way they know that you are going to get the person that they asked for.  If the person that they asked for is not available then you should say, “I’m sorry but they are not here right now.  Could I take a message?”  These are three easy lines that show that you have manners when you answer the phone.  Your friends will learn from you and you will be able to learn how to talk to people nicely.

Get Rewarded For Good Behavior

You know, it just isn’t Santa who makes a list and checks it twice.  Everybody around you can see how you are behaving.  When you scream and cry in a store because you can’t have ice cream, the workers see you.  When you are trying to push other kids off of the jungle gym at the park, parents see you.  Acting out in public is not good behavior.  Being rewarded for your behavioral actions is something that comes with time.  You will get that ice cream that you wanted, but it is to be a reward.  Help mom and dad out with the household chores.  You will be able to eat that ice cream in no time.  There is no need to shout at your parents while you are grocery shopping.  Bad behavior like that leads to absolutely no rewards.  Think about a doll or a video game that you would love to have.  EARN IT!  Surprise your family with clean dishes.  You will be very happy when you find a new toy on your bed.  Don’t forget to make your bed, too!

Are You A Spelling Bee Champ?

Have you ever wanted to be the best at spelling?  Do you think you want to take the chance?  You might be nervous the first time you enter yourself into a spelling bee but that is normal.  There are many ways to be able to remember how to spell certain words it just takes practice.  There will be times that you will get a word that you have never heard, and that is all right because it helps you to learn.  One way to become a spelling be champ is by training yourself to memorize words in parts.  Spell the first part of a long word six times slowly and then add the other half and repeat six times slowly again.  Another way to remember how to spell is to constantly write the word over and over again and then say it after writing it down.  If you are someone who doesn’t really like school and the learning part, think of the spelling bee as a fun activity.  Make up songs with your friends to make the learning process more interesting.

The Lessons Of Sesame Street

Sesame Street has been teaching kids like you for many years.  There are a variety of ways that you can learn from this show.  The songs that teach you how to count will always be in your head.  It is wonderful to still have a show on that can help teach kids before they actually go to school.  The characters are lovable and kid-friendly.  Having celebrity guest appearances is also a plus.  It shows that they want to help the kids learn.  Once you and your friends see that you are learning with other children from all over the world you will know that Sesame Street’s lessons are very special.

Sled Riding Safety

Seeing as how the snow just won’t stop in a lot of places, you should have some fun sled riding.  The one thing that ou have to remember is SAFETY FIRST.  Kids, you have to protect yourselves from harm.  Sled riding can be dangerous if you are not cautious.  Always check your surroundings and make sure that someone is with you.  Never try to go through trees because you might end up hitting one.  If you are under the age of 10 you should always have a parent or adult supervisor to watch you.  Wearing a helmet is the best way to prevent any type of head injury that might occur.  You don’t have to buy another helmet though.  Just wear one that you already have when you ride your bike.  (You better have a helmet when you ride your bike!)  Pick a hill to sled down that you know you can stop at the bottom of.  If the hill is too steep you might not be able to stop and an accident will happen.  Keep safe while sledding and don’t forget to wear your warm clothes!
