Monday Teeny Poll

Kids! You gotta love ‘em!

My goodness, is it Monday already?  It seems like just last week I was asking about teens and plastic surgery.  Oh, yeah, right. It was just last week.

The choice that got the highest vote count regarding teens wanting cosmetic surgery was that it saddens many people with sixty four percent of the vote.  The next highest was that these girls need a bit more life experience before making such a big decision with fifty eight percent.  Thirty eight percent said that they were totally against it, which I agree with.

There was a big debate going on in the comments about what constitutes cosmetic surgery, and I would have to say that I don’t consider braces to qualify.  I think that if a person just doesn’t like the way something looks and wants to change it, even though it functions properly, would be my criteria.  In that regard, teeth that need braces are not functioning properly, so I don’t lump them in the same category as a breast augmentation. 

And there you have it folks, my two cents.

The last few months have seen us at birthday parties galore, sometimes with multiple birthday parties per week.  I have to say that it has given me a great opportunity to see all kinds of children of many ages, as well as differing ethnic and social backgrounds.  Kids really are fascinating, and nothing brings personalities to the forefront like a party.  When faced with the social jungle of the bounce house and unfamiliar faces, I am often surprised at how even children I thought I knew well, act. 

It got me marveling at how fabulously different their personalities are, and how children differ from their parents and even siblings.
