  • Put an ice pack on it to make the swelling go down. Just keep an eye on be on the safe side call the nurse at your doctors office and see what she would suggest. If the swelling isn't down by morn call and make it appt, it never hurts to be safe

  • Is it his eyeball or the eye socket? If his eyeball is bleeding you might want to take him to the doctor. If it is just the area around his eye put ice on it and give him children's pain reliever. He'll probably be fine. Kids get bumps and bruises all the time. My daughter fell and hit her chin on the side of the bathtub when she was 4. She had to get stitches but was fine - up and playing as soon as she got home.

  • GRAMMER AND SPELLING CLASSES. He's fine I'm sure. Put an ice pack on it and if he gets fussy and the swelling doesnt go away. take him to the doctors.
