A teenager girl often wants to start experimenting of their make up to enhance their facial features like her eyes. The reason behind is wanting to wear makeup is to look more mature. If you are ready to try makeup, I think much better to tell your parents first if it is a good idea.

Sit your parents down and explain that you are ready to start experimenting with makeup and give them a good reason why you should be able to wear it. Point out any blemishes like zits or blackheads that you are embarrassed about and want to cover up with makeup.

Make a deal with your parents that you will start wearing light foundation; tell them that a lot of foundation has an ingredient to block UV rays, so it is a health benefit to wear makeup. Remind your parents that you are maturing and that you are very responsible, remind them also that you could easily sneak behind their back and wear makeup when they are not around you but they are teaching you to be an honest adult.

It is epidemic, have you heard? Head lice are resistant to shampoo, liniment and other chemical treatment in much the same way that bacteria become resistant to antibiotics, over the counter lice remedies are essentially insecticides and who want to put that in your child head. But if you kill them, how in the world can you get rid of them? The good news is that you do not need to use chemicals at all, the only thing you really need is a good nit comb.

In order to fight lice, you need to understand how they operate; lice eggs or nits are glued to the hair shaft, close to the scalp. Lice themselves aren’t hard to kill you can smother them by coating your child head in a fat olive oil, coconut oil, etc. for several hours under a plastic shower cup. The nits on the other hand are hard to get rid of, get a good nit comb preferably with metal teeth and start combing.

Wash you child hair as usual and towel dry, section the hair for 4 to 6 section depending on the hair thickness. Rub your regular hair conditioner into the scalp in each section and comp thoroughly. Dip the comp into a bowl of water to get off any lice you find. Pour the water down the sink and rinse the conditioner from your child hair.

Prevent re-infestation; freeze your child pillow, hats and hairbrushes for at least four hours in between us. Use shampoo with tea tree oil to prevent any new lice from crawling onto your child scalp. Keep spray bottle filled with water and several drops of tea tree oil handy spray your child head each morning before setting off to school. Tea tree scent will keep away any new lice away.

There is no better role model than our (mother) when it comes to showing for a young girl that beauty and self esteem come from within, not from make up, height, weight and clothes.

Start young – keep your relationships going with your child is easier than starting one when you haven’t had one before. You may find them trying to pull away once they hit a certain age; just keep at it.

Find common ground – search for a thing that you and your teen are both interested in. it is easier to talk about something than you both have in common. That way, you can ask your teen a band new album rather than the same old how was school?

Be open to what they say – when you get your teen talking, do not be surprised if they say something you do not like. Just be open to what they are telling you instead of being judgmental. You can tell them you do not approve of something without attacking them. If they feel comfortable talking about serious things, they be more likely to come to you if they have a problem.

I wanted to get a house help for quite some time now but my paranoia is killing me. If I don’t need it badly I really wouldn’t consider getting one. I really have this fear of getting a psycho house help. The only solution on this is to easy back ground back ground check an applicant first before officially hiring her. This is the only way I know that I could have a peace of mind knowing that the one I hired doesn’t have any criminal records or a history of mental illness or something. I am ridiculous, I know. But I believe that it is better safe than sorry.
