#Be aware of "natural" shampoos. Similar to packaged food that is labeled "natural," shampoos that are labeled "natural" can still contain ingredients that will irritate your yorkie's skin and hair.

#Make a homemade shampoo. A great way to avoid shampoos containing harmful ingredients is to make a homemade shampoo for your dog. When making the shampoo, look for alkaline ingredients, i.e., ingredients with a pH of 7 or higher. Most soaps and soap bases have their pH level listed on the packaging.

# Contact your friend. It might feel infinitely easier to end this friendship via text, or Facebook, or an email.

#*On the list, include the "facts," or the specific behaviors or situations that have led you to want to end the friendship. For example, perhaps your friend broke a promise to you, or betrayed your trust by revealing something you told them in confidence. Write out all of these instances to include them in conversation if necessary.<ref> http://www.skillsyouneed.com/ips/communication-difficult-situations.html</ref>

# Practice your conversation. Find another friend or a family member (preferably someone who does not know the friend you are going to be talking to) with whom you can practice this conversation.

#*Say to a friend: "I have decided that I need to talk to my good friend about ending our friendship because I do not feel like I can trust them.

#*One example is that you and your friend might only communicate through text message, and therefore it might not feel strange or passive aggressive to end the friendship this way. You know your relationship best, and if this feels natural to you, go for it.

# Focus on your feelings. This friend has clearly hurt you, and your first inclination might be to tell them all the ways in which they have betrayed you. In order to end the friendship in a healthy way though, make it clear that you are ending the friendship because of how you are feeling, and not because of their personal characteristics.<ref>http://www.cbsnews.com/news/how-to-spot-and-end-a-toxic-friendship/</ref>[[Image:Get Rid of a Friend Who Is Not Trustworthy Step 4 Version 3.jpg|center]]

#*You might say: "When I heard that you had talked to Sue about my divorce, I felt betrayed and hurt, because I didn't want that information shared with anyone just yet. I am not sure I can continue in this friendship because I do not feel like I will be able to trust in this relationship anymore."

#*Say something like: "I know you're curious about why I'm ending our friendship. A couple things have happened lately that have made me question my trust in our relationship. The most significant one was that I found out that you had told Sarah personal details about some of my recent struggles that I was hoping we could keep between us.

#*You could say something like: "I know we'll continue to see each other at book club. My goal is to continue our relationship in this context and be cordial and respectful to you while I'm in that environment. However, I would appreciate if we did not have any outside contact. How does that sound to you?"

# Maintain kindness and respect. Betrayal in a relationship can elicit several negative emotions, such as anger, shame, and sadness. When you finally meet your friend in person, remind yourself that verbally attacking them will be counterproductive to your goal and disrespectful to your friend. While you may not want to continue the friendship, they were your friend once, and you will likely feel better about your decision if the ending is amicable.<ref> https://hbr.org/2010/10/difficult-conversations-9-common-mistakes</ref>[[Image:Get Rid of a Friend Who Is Not Trustworthy Step 6 Version 3.jpg|center]]

# Tell your other friends. If you and your friend have a larger group of shared friends, it will be helpful to be honest with them about what has happened. When you are telling your friends though, try to only talk about your side of the story and again focus on your feelings, rather than the shortcomings of the other person. This person is still a friend of the larger group, and you want to be respectful by not bad mouthing them to others.<ref>https://psychcentral.com/blog/archives/2014/01/09/surviving-a-friendship-break-up/</ref>[[Image:Get Rid of a Friend Who Is Not Trustworthy Step 7 Version 3.jpg|center]]

#*A helpful way to tell your friends might be: "Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that Jenny and I are going our separate ways. We've had a good friendship, but we're just not seeing eye to eye anymore. I'd rather not go into the specifics about what happened, but I'm hoping that I can still remain friends with all of you."

In many cases, however, a one-to-one aide restricts a child's developing independence.<ref>http://www.p12.nysed.gov/specialed/publications/1-1aide-jan2012.htm</ref> Look around for schools with integrated classrooms, or other schools that emphasize peer support.[[Image:Get a Personal Aide at School Step 5.jpg|center]]

#Inquire as to whether your school has a peer-helper program. Students like this might come with many names, such as "buddies," "tutors," "peer-buddies" "peer-to-peer supporters" or other titles.

#Explain exactly what you need. Do you need someone to help you get from class to class? Your school might have students who volunteer for this activity and can take you on. Someone to share notes with you? Your school may assign a different student in each of your classes who is willing to take on this responsibility, or just one student who is in your grade.<ref>http://www.friendshipcircle.org/blog/2012/03/06/why-your-school-should-have-a-peer-to-peer-program/</ref>

===Understanding Your Rights as a Student===
#Recognize that you generally have a right to free speech. As a student, you enjoy the same First Amendment rights as everyone else in the United States. That means that you can speak, print, draw, sing and generally express your opinions in a school setting. However, this does not mean that you can say anything. You cannot threaten someone or defame them - say things that are untrue. You also do not have a right to express obscenities. School officials can also censor your right to expression if they can demonstrate a reasonable educational justification for doing so.<ref>http://www.splc.org/page/high-school-faqs</ref>

#Understand that most schools can tell you what to wear. Although the First Amendment would appear to protect your right to wear whatever you wanted, most schools have the legal right to enforce dress codes. Dress codes can vary from school to school and state to state. However, your school must make its dress code public and available for everyone to read.<ref>https://acluvt.org/pubs/student_rights_handbook.pdf</ref>

#Know that your school cannot discriminate against your religious beliefs. Under the First Amendment, you also have a right to express your religious beliefs, or lack thereof.

In fact, religious activities can only occur at public schools if they are led by students. As a student, you can express your beliefs without a fear of punishment.<ref>https://acluvt.org/pubs/student_rights_handbook.pdf</ref>

#Realize that you have limited rights to search and seizure. If a teacher or other school official has "reasonable suspicion" that you are violating the law or a school code, they can search you and your belongings. Unfortunately, there is no good definition of what constitutes "reasonable suspicion" and most cases are left to the discretion of school officials. It is more difficult for police officers, who need "probable cause" and a search warrant to perform a search.<ref>https://acluvt.org/pubs/student_rights_handbook.pdf</ref>

#Recognize that your parents will likely have access to your health care information. Under the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule, there are certain privacy protections placed on a patient's health records in the United States. Many of these protections do not apply to minors.

#Realize that you can get Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI) services without your parent's consent. If you contract an STI, you have a right to be tested and treated without getting your parent's consent. However, in 18 states, a doctor can contact a minor's parents if they believe that it is in the minor's best interests. If you contract HIV/AIDS, you can be tested confidentially. However, if you are under 18, your doctor will have to get your parent's permission to treat you, unless the doctor thinks your parents would deny your treatment.<ref>https://www.guttmacher.org/state-policy/explore/overview-minors-consent-law</ref>

#Exfoliate your lips. Dry lights reflect less light than smooth, hydrated lips, which can make them look smaller. Before putting on any lip products, exfoliate your lips to remove any dry, flaky skin. Use a scrub designed specifically for the lips or brush them lightly with a clean, sanitized toothbrush to remove dead skin.<ref>http://www.seventeen.com/beauty/makeup-skincare/tips/a29765/ways-to-make-your-lips-look-bigger-naturally/</ref>

#Apply a moisturizing lip balm. When your lips are exfoliated, you want to hydrate them to lock in the moisture. That will leave them looking plump when you apply your lip color. Use a moisturizing lip balm or treatment, and allow it to sit for a couple of minutes so it sinks into your lips.<ref>http://www.marieclaire.com/beauty/makeup/g2253/make-your-lips-look-bigger/?slide=3&thumbnails=</ref>[[Image:top a clear or lightly tinted lipgloss Step 5.jpg|center]]

#*You can use any type of lip balm or moisturizer that you like, but it's a good idea to choose a formula that lists a mint, such as peppermint or spearmint, as an active ingredient. Mint helps boost blood flow, so it can help make your lips look fuller.

#Blend concealer over your lips. Patting concealer over your lips can help ensure that your lipstick or gloss goes on true to color. You can also make your lips look fuller if you blend the concealer just a little bit beyond your lip line to blur the edge. That will help it look more natural when you line outside your lips with a liner before you apply your lipstick.<ref>http://www.seventeen.com/beauty/makeup-skincare/tips/a29765/ways-to-make-your-lips-look-bigger-naturally/</ref>

If you really want full lips, apply a clear lip plumper product to your lips before lining or applying lipstick.<ref>http://stylecaster.com/beauty/make-lips-fuller/</ref>[[Image:Create Fuller Lips with Makeup Step 4.jpg|center]]
 
#*Lip plumping products often cause a stinging sensation that some people find uncomfortable. It's a good idea to test the product on a small area of your lip before applying it all over, especially if you have sensitive skin.

#Line just beyond your natural lip line. Your lip liner is a powerful tool in creating the illusion of fuller lips. Instead of lining right at the edge of your lips, use the liner to define just beyond your natural lip line for added fullness.<ref>http://stylecaster.com/beauty/make-lips-fuller/</ref>

#Apply a light or nude lipstick. Because dark colors make things look smaller and light colors make items appear larger, avoid dark lipstick when you want your lips to look fuller.

*Different cultures have different degrees of receptiveness to physical contact. In Korea, holding hands/hugging is usually for people in relationships and kissing her in public is likely to make the girl feel uncomfortable as well as others. However, doing the same thing in Latin America is taken for granted. In Bulgaria, giving a girl a goodbye hug is just as normal as shaking hands in other places. Know the cultural context and respond accordingly.

*If she "brushes" off the area you just touched, that may be a sign that she thinks you are dirty or are being too rough. For example, if you playfully touch her arm, then right afterwards she scratches, rubs or otherwise "wipes off" that area, watch out. She either thinks you are dirty or she isn't interested. Maybe try it again later if you think it is just a coincidence, but if this girl does it repeatedly, back off for a little while.

* Don't expect a fair fight. Most knife fights are not head-on so it's not uncommon for an attacker to run up behind you or attack from the side without warning.
 +
*Never throw your knife if you aren't 100% certain it will hit, or if you are fighting more than one person. if you can hit a target even 99% of the time there is still a 1% chance of Losing your knife and, chances are, you will not be able to Hit the target 99 times out of 100.

*Full back-zipping dresses are actually the easiest to get into of any garment type. When the zipper is fully open, simply hold the dress in front of you with the open back facing you, step inside, and zip. The same cannot be said about a dress that zips or buttons in front or is a pullover. This is great for those with good arms and not-so-good legs.
 
*Wearing a garment with a back closure can make you conveniently dressed up for when you need to be. For example, if you spend most of the day doing more leisurely activities that have no particular dress requirement, then go out later unplanned and must look more presentable, you will already be dressed up and not need to change.

*Garments with back closures of all the types described here are available on the marketplace to fit all budgets. They can be found just as easily in high-end retailers and discount stores. Regardless, the occasions they are generally designed for include work, parties, dates, get-togethers with friends, and formal events.

*Some sleeveless sundresses designed for warm weather can be worn as jumper dresses in cooler weather over a top of any sleeve length. If you choose to do this, you may need the dress in a size larger to allow room for the top underneath. Not all such dresses will look good this way, but some will.
