  • No. My 17 year old does but she knows I don't really like it. I don't really see the appeal and the damange it does to your skin isn't worth it.

  • Not if I can help it. It is so risky.

  • No...not just lay there. If they're playing then they're playing, but I won't let them lay there and bake.

  • No

  • Not exactly. I am always slathering them both w/sunscreen. My dd is 10 and she rarely lays on her towel for a moment. I don't say anything and she will almost always jump up after about 10 mins and jump back in the pool.

  • call me a bad mom if you must but YES! Its "our" time to talk, gossip and giggle while the younger 2 are playing with squirt guns.

  • no. sun ages and damages your skin.

  • no absolutely not! My children do play outside but i spray them often with spf 70 sunblock

  • No. My daughter's only 23 months old and there's no way I would let her sunbathe. She plays outside all the time, but she is covered in sunblock.
