Top 3 Things NOT to say to a 12 year old…


My son Sammy just got glasses this week. Since I have had to wear glasses since grade two and have been legally blind by grade six… this was something I prayed my kids did not inherit from me. Now that Sammy is in grade 7 and just slightly nearsighted the doctor assured me that he was safe from my crazy eye sight issues!

Also since getting glasses in grade two was a horrid experience, I was full of apprenhension for Sammy, but he just has taken it in stride and said it is no big deal … it is only glasses.

I realized that as well meaning as people are, they don’t really know what to say to a 12 year old boy that has just been fit with glasses.

Top 3 things NOT to say:

1. YOU LOOK STUDIOUS!
2. YOU LOOK JUST LIKE YOUR MOM!
3. FOUR EYES!

Sammy, I love your easy going attitude in life… you MUST get that from your mom! 🙂

Feel free to comment to Sammy and he will love reading your thoughts.
