It’s your kid’s first dance, first day of school, or he or she is just going out to play with friends. But oh no, their hair isn’t trendy and it’s not right for their face shape! Relax, this is a scenario that no parent faces, and yet, a recent feature from Lego Club Magazine is offering beauty tips to children from ages five to 12.
This is how the beauty trend piece is framed: “Yes, yes YOU are beautiful, but if you’re ready to change up your look, read on for some tips and tricks to get the best haircut for the shape of your face.” It’s that but that’s getting some people in a tizzy. But not to worry, we’ve got 10 beauty secrets for your little ones, so gather the youngins and let’s talk about how to be beautiful if you’re five or eight or 12!
If they’re a danger to others, cut ’em. We know it’s uncomfortable, but it needs to be done! The playground can be tough business, and you don’t want to hurt yourself or others! Just don’t bite ’em! That’s a bad habit that can be really hard to break. Don’t get to this length, because it will create some obstacles:
Brush and floss those chompers! And preferably for as long as it takes to sing the Dora song. Or if you’re really having fun, you can try something like Happy.
Mud, chocolate, spaghetti sauce, miscellaneous (a.k.a. WTF?!). You can get messy, but all it takes is a good rinse to clear off any muck. Don’t stress, it’s just a couple of quick splashes and rubs and then it’s back to the fun.
Tangles happen, but if you leave them too long, it’s gonna hurt way more to get them out. Brush out the most obvious ones first, and then whatever time permits. But don’t just leave ’em all tangled, because your hair can quickly become a bungled mess. Ariel gets it:
Keep it clean by wiping responsibly.
Are you wearing any? Then you’re beautiful.
Make sure those laces are tied, so you don’t trip. And if you’ve got dog poop on your shoe, either wash it off with an old rag, or if you’re in the park, some light rubbing on a grassy patch will do the trick. Don’t rub it on a lawn that isn’t yours, though! You might get in trouble.
Eat something green once in a while and don’t just eat cookies. We all love cookies, but our body wants a little of everything to keep it going.
Get outside a bit. Put on a cape, put on a tutu, put on something. Dressing up and playing make-believe is way more fun than the Minecraft you’ve got at home. Pretend you’re flying, fall and scrape a knee (this is how you learn) and laugh and cry and just enjoy the world for everything it offers.
Please go to sleep.
