I'm kind of freaking out about it. I have a 9 year old, a 2 year old and an infant. I'm worried about protecting their eyes.

What are you guys doing to protect your kids eyes?

Then don't go outside while it's happening.

Seriously! Please tell me you are joking! They don't look into the sun on an ordinary day so why would they on a Monday?

You can keep them inside that day.  Or at least during the time it is going on if you are worried.

Don't go outside or get the glasses.

The sun isn't magically stronger because of an eclipse. They'll be fine as long as they don't stare at it

Have you never experienced a solar eclipse before?

That's really not something I've even thought about. At all. Why would this even be concern?
