Unknown person? You're meeting yourself here! And I'm sure a 10 year old will be capable of understanding all about it as soon as he/she sees himself/herself in front of him! And all of this is funny! I'm sorry lol!
I would want to let her know that in the end things work out, life starts to get fun and stops being full of pain and fear, that not only is it safe to dream but some dreams will become a reality with a little fun work (fun being the operative word there). I would just want to let her know not to give up hope of a happy life cause it will happen, I know cause I did it
Nothing sucks more as a 10 year old than having some adult lecture you about adult life. If I had to go back and visit myself I would just say that I am a distant cousin who has come back from Australia after moving there years ago, ask mini-me if I wanted a quick game of Sonic on the master system, and then bugger off.
I enjoyed my childhood very much, it was precisely that - a childhood. I didn't need to know how crummy and boring adult life was, I was happy messing around with toys and playing footy with my mates.
Well one of the first things that came to mind was, I would go to the local lottery and get a list of the last 100 lotto drawings with the exact dates of the winning numbers, and tell him not to forget to play them! Keep it in a safe place, and in less than a year you will be a billionaire! Don't forget! LOL!
I would also tell him that when you are 15 you are going to meet a boy named Mike and be his best friend. Find a moment when he least expects it and give him a big wet kiss and tell him you love him. He might freak out, but, you'll get why I told you to do that. If you are anything like I was at 15, you'll want to kiss him. (little hearts forming over my head and all that gushy stuff)
Oh and when you go to highschool, no matter how much you hate it and everyone there, stay in school and graduate and go to College. It's not really about learning, it's about meeting as many people as you can, going to every college party, and having one heck of a good time when you are still young. If you get a decent college education while you are there...bonus!
Number one. You might be worried that you are going to be different than people around you. Well don't worry about it, be who you are, enjoy life all that you can. Being sad sucks.
Oh, and there is going to be a guy running for president. his name is George Bush, (remember Junior not senior) tell everyone you know not to vote for that MF. because he is going to start wars and totally ruin the world for everyone. Just sayin!
I'd encourage my 10-year-old self to believe in herself, and that if she desires to pursue a career in science, go for it...she will be well on her way to making her dreams come true. I'd encourage her to become involved in caring for nature, to volunteer at garden centers and nature preserves, and that will help her find her life's path as she grows older.
LOL, I'd tell myself lots of things, like "right now in Seattle there's this nerdy 10 year old kid who will be going to Harvard in 8 years, so get your butt up to Boston and make sure you hook up with him. He's got red hair and glasses like you and his last name is Gates."
I've tried to tell my 10 year old cousins the things I would have told myself, and they didn't understand or care. So I can't say I would have taken it serious either!
I'd tell myself to start using my left arm and left leg. Personally I'm 24 and I'm happy with my life so, I really can't say I'd want to tell myself anything. Always good to figure it out by experience.
I'd tell her, "Get it our of your head that you're going to turn into a different person once you grow up. I hate to tell you, but you're still going to be the same person - only taller and smarter. That person you see in the mirror is going to be pretty much the same person when you're grown - only older looking. There's no chance in hell that you'll be turning into someone who looks like Abby Dalton, but don't feel bad; because once you're grown up, you aren't going to think Abby Dalton is all that great looking either. On the other hand, you won't be changing your mind about thinking Jackie Kennedy is funny looking, or thinking that Elizabeth Taylor isn't pretty. As I said, you're still going to pretty much be the same person (except, of course, for that Abby Dalton thing).
It has been a gray area for a long time that in the UK, sex below the age of 16 is illegal and many frown on it. I'll be honest, I lost my virginity at 15, however I am not a criminal, I have lead a community driven...
My 12 year old recently went on a camping trip with some of his dads friends. While on this 'camping' trip the following happened. The old ladys grand-daughter was 'upset' so the woman gave her car keys to...

We have all heard of attachment parenting and co-sleeping etc. But is it too much to be breast feeding your almost 4 year old son??? In my former profession as an RECE I have met many women who have done this and I have...
It can be FUNNY, CUTE, or that EMBARRASSING comment in the grocery store line. Please give the age of the child for reference. I love it when my 2yr old says "tank you, daddy" when I give her milk or something...
