When your 10 year old hears her first word, she’ll be left feeling nervous. She’ll struggle to understand what it means and she might even feel shy about asking for help. That’s only natural. Especially when you can’t help but worry that she will one day be diagnosed with an asbestos disease or suffer a similar outcome. Thankfully, it’s not going to be as bad as that! Fortunately, there are a number of ways you can help your 10 year old avoid getting the moniker of “asbestos victim” in the future. Here’s how:
Be an informed parent
You’ve probably heard of the famous line, “you are what you eat”, meaning that if you’re going to eat anything, you’ve got to be fully aware of what it is you’re going to eat.” The same can be said about your child. If she’s not well-versed in the information she’s being exposed to, it’s going to be very difficult for her to understand the things we teach her. We need to be lazy about it, but we also need to be strict about it. Not only do we want our kids to be well-versed in the information they’re being exposed to, but we also want them to be careful enough so they don’t get in danger of something they don’t know they have permission to be around. That means being active, trying new foods and drinks, and educating yourself. This is the best way to make sure your child is well-versed in what is safe and what isn’t. Although, if you have questions or concerns about what’s going on around you, it’s best to find out about your own. The internet is a great way to find information, discuss ideas, and find support. Ask anyone you trust and they’ll be able to help you get answers you need.
Tell your child the truth
Once you’ve outlined the risks of asbestos and how it’s avoidable, you’ve also got to talk about the perks of being safe. We all have differing experiences with the term “asbestos victim,” so if you don’t want your 10 year old to think you’re a victim of asbestos, you’ve got to tell her the truth. You can start by talking to her about your workplace. If you worked in a mining or manufacturing environment, you might be able to tell her that it’s technically not asbestos, but it’s still something you worked with. If you work in a predominantly wood industry, you might be able to tell her that the term “asbestos” refers to a specific product made from these woods, but that it doesn’t mean you have to use it. This is important because it will help your child to draw the line between what she likes and what she has permission to use.
Ask for help when you need it
Again, this is one of the best ways to get your 10 year old’s name in the running for a scholarship. As with all things, it will only help if you ask nicely. If you have a hard time talking to your child about what she needs to do, it might be wise to find a different school. At the end of the day, your child will feel bad if she doesn’t do what you say she needs to do. So, try to make it a rule that you will always ask help when you feel like you need it. This way, she won’t feel like she’s doing anything wrong and she will still be able to ask you for help when she needs it.
Show them respect
As with everything, you need to put respect for other people above all else. This means showing them who you believe in and what you stand for. If your child doesn’t value the opinions of others, you will see a drop in her activity, grades, and even percentiles in happiness. Plus, being in tune with your child is one of the best ways to get help when you need it. The internet can be a great place to find support, as it can be a place to talk to anyone you need. You can also set a good example for your child by doing something about their hair before it’s 20. If you have a habit of cutting your hair short, it can make you look old and grumpy and less likely to be accepted by people you meet. If you go this route, you will have it much easier when your child is in high school. Her hair will probably be shorter than her peers, and she will probably be accepted more quickly than if she goes with the style longer.
Do something about their hair before they’re 20
Not only will your child be more likely to be accepted by other students at your school if she’s shorter than her peer, but it will also stand out better on her head. As time passes, your child’s hair will become more dense, longer, and have a more defined color. This will make her more attractive to potential suitors and make her stand out even more. The only way to achieve all of these effects is to grow your child’s hair long. If you’re unsure how, or if your child wants to do it herself, short- and medium-length hair can be done at home with a hot straightener. Once it’s long, it’s easier to manage, and it’ll stay put when she’s in the shower or when she’s on the swing.
As you can see from the list above, there are a number of ways you can get your 10 year old’s name in the books. One of the most important things you can do is be an informed parent. You’ve probably heard that the internet is a great place to find information, discuss ideas, and find support. It can also be a great way to get help when you need it. The internet is a great place to discover what ever you need to when you need it. It can be a great way to find out why certain words are associated with certain phrases. It can also be a great way to find out what actions your child should be taking to make herself sound intelligent. When it comes to getting your 10 year old’s name in the running for a scholarship, you need to be patient. The internet is a great place to find information, but it won’t be enough to pull off the feat in a day. There will be many challenges that you and your 10 year old will have to overcome together. The internet is just the beginning, and you need to encourage and support one another as you work towards your goal.
