4 Tips for Helping Your Children Feel More Secure About Wearing Glasses

While there are many people who wear glasses proudly, there are others who struggle with the four-eyed stigma. Many people remember childhood and how children were so mean to those who wore glasses. As a child, it may be difficult to deal with the glasses requirement. However, as a parent, there are things you can do to help your children feel more secure about wearing glasses.

1. Share Famous People Who Wear Glasses

Sit down at the computer and pull up pictures of famous people who wear glasses. You might want to look at your child's favorite television shows and find people who wear glasses. It's also a great idea to take a look at some of their favorite musicians, artists and cartoon characters. Show them people who have made major contributions to the world (Nobel Peace Prize winners, scientists, politicians, etc.) and show how cool it can really be to wear glasses.

2. Put It in Their Subconscious Mind

A great way to put the glasses in their subconscious mind is by making sure the artwork in their bedroom features people wearing glasses. Fun artwork with prints of glasses might be nice as well. As long as glasses are a visible feature in the rooms at home, this might help reinforce the idea that glasses are normal and that many people wear them. There's no need to feel ashamed by them.

3. Turn It into an Experience

When it's time to go shopping for glasses, make it a fun experience. As a tradition, you can schedule a date when you all go out and get pizza. Then, go shopping for glasses at a provider near you. Allow your child to pick out the pair that suits them well. Brightly colored glasses are fun and can really reflect the child's personality.

4. Get Your Own Pair

In a lot of cases, children want to be just like their parents. Even if you don't need glasses, try wearing a fun pair of personality glasses. You can take them off whenever you're not around your child. Daughters usually adore their fathers and sons love their mothers. The parent that's doted on the most can wear the glasses. However, it's a great idea for parents to show solidarity and wear pairs together. If a child sees that they're not alone in what they have to wear, they'll feel a sense of solidarity and support. This will help them feel more secure about wearing glasses in the long run.

Glasses are fun, cool and versatile. If you take a great approach to wearing glasses, your child will eventually follow suit. Before long, they'll be able to confidently wear frames for the world to see.
