Protect Your Kids from the Summer Sun

by Eric Lindlau 08/25/2019

The summer is the time for a holiday. Summertime is the time families go on vacation and enjoy time together. Different places come to mind, and such situations lead to exposure to sunlight for many hours - the beach is a good example. 

When you visit the beach with your kids, you may expose them to sunlight for too much time, and that is bad for their skin. The reason is that the sunshine is made up of three kinds of ultraviolet rays, all of which affect the skin and the eyes. So, if you will enjoy summer and also be protected, so you don't have to deal with skin problems after the holiday is over, the following tips are essential.

  1. Stay in the shade. Wherever you go during the summer, try to stay under a shade as much as possible. That is important to reduce the amount of time your kids spend in the direct sun. So, when you are at the beach, get them to stop running around from an hour or two. Let them stay with you under a shade, and you can engage in activities that do not involve running around or getting exposed in the sun.
  2. Get them covered. It is quite challenging to get kids to settle down especially in a place like a beach where they have enough area to run around. However, as much as possible, ensure your kids are wearing clothes that cover more than half their bodies. Covering provides that they are not exposed to the sun more than their bodies can take.
  3. Protect their eyes. Having kept your kids in the shade for a few hours and also ensuring the wear protective clothes, another thing you can do is find a means of protecting their eyes. Before and during your stay at the beach, you should warn them not to look directly at the sun. Aside from that, however, you should get them sunglasses. That will assure you that you've protected their eyes by some means.
  4. Delay going to open places until evening. If you must go to an open place like the beach, you can delay your going until late into the evening when the sun sets. If you visit an area where the sun sets early, that means you have more time to spend outside. If not, then it implies that you have limited time to spend with the kids on the beach.

I am a 70 yr old recent widow who needed to reluctantly sell our house alone for the first time. Eric Lindlau, owner of Lindlau Realty, was the perfect choice for me. He explained in detail the entire process answering all my questions. He was sensitive to my emotional state, kind and helpful in every way. He even assisted me when I accidentally locked myself out of the house! He emailed me selling prices of comparable houses, which helped me understand realistic values in our living area. I highly recommend this personable young man for your real estate needs.

Eric was GREAT to work with!! He was a dual agent for us and the home seller. When any challenges arose he knew how to handle them with poise. He was in communication with us throughout the entire process. I would recommend him for all of your real estate dealings.

Eric was an amazing person to work with. He helped me through a somewhat difficult purchase that had lots of unexpected bumps. Eric always returned my phone calls and emails promptly and was above all...honest!!! So many times when you are dealing with folks who make their living on commission, you feel like they are trying to "sell" you all the time. That was never the case with Eric. He was a complete professional and nice guy. I enjoyed working with him so much that he is now representing me in another sale.

Eric was always so willing to work with our schedules and he took the time over 3 months to show us over 20 houses. He was very knowledgeable and would give us his honest opinion. He always gave us great and honest advice but would still do whatever we asked of him. He found us such a good deal and when we thought we were extremely annoying or need to he was always pleasant and willing to help however.
