The Ultimate Cure for Hiccups

Everyone thinks they know the best way to cure hiccups - so-called “sure-fire solutions” like chugging a big glass of water or holding your breath for as long as you can or standing on your head while doing both of those things. But now there’s a much easier solution. Kidzworld has found a new cure that works, but only if you’re able to catch those nasty hiccups early. Check it out!

The Ear-Rubbing Method

In order for the ear-rubbing method to work, it’s important that you notice your hiccups as soon as they begin. You can’t let them get out of hand. Any more than 1-3 hiccups and it may be too late.

Here’s How it Works

Place your thumbs behind your earlobes and place the inside edge of your index fingers on top of your earlobes (see the image above). In that position, rub the entire earlobe from top to bottom for 20 seconds or more. Concentrate on the motion and soon the hiccups will be forgotten.

The Ultimate Cure

Does it seem too good to be true? Well, it’s not! By some strange miracle, the ear-rubbing method actually works! No more bloating yourself with big glasses of water, downing spoonfuls of sugar, or drinking pickle juice (yuck!). This is the easiest method to rid yourself of hiccups, and you can do it anywhere, any time. Next time you or your friends have the hiccups, give it try!

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

While engagement isn't illegal for juveniles, marriage is as you can already tell. Judging by your feelings, I don't think the relationship will last long enough for him to be able to wait. I heard some courts will allow it, depending on location. Knowing whether her engagement is okay is a tricky thing. She seems pretty confident in the relationship. As for your own feelings, how well do you know him? Do you have any knowledge about him outside their love life? Do her parents know anything about him? If you don't now the answers, don't be afraid to ask them to her or her parents. I'm also a 16-year-old girl and I don't feel comfortable with it. Many young adults have a hard time understanding the transition from  teen to adult, but if he's put his problems on her, that's a bad sign. I don't think 5 months is long enough in my opinion and I think this could lead to making bad habits in a relationship. I appreciate that you're trying to help your friend be safe. Hopefully some of her closest people will help her with you. They don't necessarily have to steer her against him, but they should help guide her into deciding what's best ad how to carry on from that.

I don't even think that legal for a adult to marry a teen I think you should ask that part to make sure my theory is correct

Do your parents know her parents? Maybe you could get your parents to speak to hers. Or if not, maybe tell her parents yourself that you're concerned. Try speaking to her and making sure she's 100% sure about what she's doing?

So last year my friend got engaged at the age of sixteen to a guy of twenty-one and they only dated for 5 months at the time. I'm afraid she's making a mistake. They're still together, but her guy seems like he has a temper and might get abusive in the future.  What should I do?
