How do you balance a chemical reaction word equation?!

I don't know that you do. The only thing I would do is to convert the word equation to the corresponding chemical equation, then balance that.

but how do i balcane the charges? i don't understand what to do with them. i know i am supposed to bring them down, but down where?

In a word equation there are no charges. Perhaps you put it in chemical form and convert back to balance word equation. I'm not familiar with this phrasing so you need to review your notes.
