i am trying to crochet a little bear and i need advice on doing this...with all the experts out there is it a more successful approach to crochet the ears of the bear in the process or to crochet them separate and then sew them on?
thank you for any help you can give

on a pattern I have for a piggy, I had to do the ears seperate and then sew them on. That may be the case with all amigurumi animals with ears.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

It can be simplest to make the ears separately and them sew them on afterwards. I crocheted a Winnie the Pooh and the ears were 'crocheted into' Pooh's head, but unless you've had a lot of experience, you might want to put off trying that (just in terms of ear placement. The pattern I followed told me exactly where to place them, so I didn't have to worry). I haven't yet 'winged it' when making an animal, but when I do, I'm almost 100% certain that I will sew any ears on later.
