Back To School Must-Have Supplies

Aug 21, 2014

Whether you love or loathe hitting the books, Kidzworld’s got your guide to the must-have school supplies that’ll make it fun to come back to class!

Stainless Steel or Glass Water Bottle

Look stylish (while doing your part to conserve the earth’s resources) by picking up your own water bottle. Stainless Steel are durable containers and come in lots of different designs—from floral and animal designs to Disney and Nickelodeon characters—the choice is yours!  Glass Bottles often come with silicone sleeves to protect them from breaking. Steer clear of plastic bottles—after some plastic bottles were reported to contain toxic elements, it’s best to play it safe and go with stainless steel.

Running Shoes

Your parents can’t say no to new shoes—get the right ones and they’ll protect your feet from the elements and keep you in shape for gym class. For a classic cool try Converse All-Stars or if you like more support go with some cushiony trainers. These days sneakers come in so many styles and colors that it’s easy to find a cool looking shoe that fits great too.

A Fresh Box Of Crayons

Nothing beats the smell of a new box of crayons. Make sure yours has a sharpener built into the back so you can recapture the crayons’ sharp points that’ll get worn down once you create a few artistic masterpieces. Pencil crayons are probably good too—they’re a little less messy and let you color finer lines..

New Backpack

Your backpack is a great way to express yourself—you can project your love for all things Miley or keep it simple with a nondescript bag. Make sure it’s big enough to fit your homework and your lunch bag and make sure you’re comfortable carrying it on your back—if it’s not comfy when it’s empty, imagine it stuffed with books! You’ll be carrying your backpack for a whole school year, so make sure it’s stylish and durable. There’s no use buying a cool looking bag if it’s going to fall apart in a week!

No. I don't like those people at the mall. Sometimes, they ask my family and I (usually directed at my mom and sister, but sometimes at me, too. Even though I'm under 13. Not for long though.) if they want their hair done. And sometimes I'm so tempted to say, "No thank you. I did my hair today. Do you think I want it done?" But of course I never do. It's kinda disrespectful. So we just usually say No thank you. My mom, sister, and I now have a solution for that (my idea when I was maybe ages 9-11) Don't make eye contact with them and pretend that they aren't there.

 Loosing a parent is hard, your dad knows that and I'm sure that he misses your mom just as much as you do. Whether you explain to him how you are feeling or not, you should know that your Dad will always love you and admitting to him how you feel isn't going to change that. Although it is completely understandable how you feel, you need to let your dad move one eventually. It's not fair to him if he has to spend the rest of his life alone. Even though you might not see it, its a good thin that your dad is finally feeling comfortable enough to date. It doesn't mean that he is letting go of your mom or that he will forget about her, it means that he is moving on with his life. You lost your mother and he lost the love of his life. Dating other people will probably start off being just as hard for him as it is for you. My advice is that you talk to your dad. Let him know how you feel in the most gentle and understanding way that you can. Don't flat out say that you don't want him dating anyone, tell him that you still miss your mom and its hard to see him with other people. Let me know how it goes, good luck. :)
