Nose Bleeds

"The doctor said I wouldn't have so many nosebleeds if I kept my finger outta there." - Ralph Wiggums, The Simpsons.

Ralph's doctor is right because too much nose picking is one of the main reasons kids get nosebleeds. So if a kid in class suddenly starts getting a bleeding nose - there's a pretty good chance he's been doing some serious nasal excavation. Nosebleeds are messy, look gross and can be uncomfortable - but they're really not a big deal.

What Causes Nosebleeds?
The most common type of nosebleed is an anterior nosebleed. That means it starts at the front part of the nose from one nostril. This happens when the tiny blood vessels that line the inside of your nose break. This can be caused if the vessels are scraped, ripped or irritated from nose picking, from being punched in the nose or from hitting your nose hard on something. Your blood vessels can also break if the lining of your nose gets dried out by really dry air.

What to Do if You Get a Nosebleed?

  • Grab a tissue or cloth, or your sister's favorite dress to catch the blood.
  • Tip your head forward. Don't lean your head back or all the blood will run down your throat.
  • Pinch the soft part of your nostrils together for ten minutes, without stopping. (Don't forget to breathe through your mouth.)
  • Don't pick, rub or blow your nose. This will only make it worse.
  • You should see your doctor if the nosebleed was caused by a hit or a fall, if it doesn't stop bleeding after 30 minutes, or if you start to feel faint or dizzy.

Preventing Nosebleeds

  • Don't pick your nose! It may be tempting to try and pull out that nice, juicy, booger - but the more you pick, the more likely you are to start bleeding.
  • Use a humidifier in your room to moisten the air.
  • Wear proper safety gear, like helmets and visors when you're playing sports.

What Do You Do With Your Boogers?

  • Wipe it on my teacher's chair.
  • Hide it in my brother's sandwich.
  • Eat it.

There's an easy way to erase that "bully" label you're giving these people. Would you like to hear it? Rhetorical question. Words only hurt if you let them. I understand how harmful negative comments can be, but you need to try your absolute best to ignore them. The main goal bullies have is to bring you down; they want to see you get upset. Shrug it off. A tweet from the lovely Suzy Berhow states "When some is nasty or treats you poorly. It says nothing about you, but a lot about them". That's a quote everyone should live by. Just keep your head up. ♥♥ Even if your friend doesn't go to that school with you, don't worry. I'm sure she'll still be there to give emotional support when needed.

New school = Clean slate If you don't like things that took place at your old school, congratulations- you're going to be in an environment with different people who, likely, act a different way. The absolute best way to make new friends is to be yourself. Don't act like someone you're not just to please people. Who cares if you're "too nerdy"? At least you're not fake. And remember - even if you can't make new friends, you always have the ones that are already there for you- including your internet pals. They'll all have your back. Good luck. x

Socialize. Or drop your pencil in class next to someone, they will pick it up and you can say "Thanks, Hey, aren't you the kid from ____? I'm ___, nice to meet you!" And if all else fails {which it WONT!!} you always have us to escape reality. But still, good luck! I have a feeling you won't need it :)

I know it can be quite embarrassing sometimes when you want to invite your friends on this site. But just give it a try. Tell them about the cool features we get and tell how fun you have and stuff. I am sure if they really take your opinion seriously, they won't bother about the name 'kidzworld'. In my school, everybody think that kidzworld is a cool site and stuff.  :)
