Summer may not officially be here just yet, but the weather is definitely picking up! With that in mind, along with the longer days and the generally happier mood that the wonderfully warm weather usually brings along, it is time to kick things into gear where the security sector as it pertains to the sun.
Yes, we all want to get out and about and take advantage of every single ray the sun has to offer, and rightly so, after the not-so-pleasant weather in the last few months.
Needless to say, that the temperatures have risen and we do need to do what we can to keep our children cool and beat the heat.
We have listed a few suggestions below on how to keep your child secure in the sun:
Slather on the suncream
Be sure to stock up on suncream, if you are planning to take full advantage of the weather. This will definitely give you one less issue to worry about. Your child will be protected and free to have as much fun as is possible on the day.
Stay in the shade
Where possible, always find a spot in the shade. This will help keep your child cooler as they play. Needless to say, you will also enjoy your time much better under a big leafy tree or umbrella.
Yes, dehydration is one of the biggest issues in the warm season. This is even more common in children, as they produce more heat when active. They may also become more distracted whilst in action, thereby leading them to ignore any signs of thirst they might have. As the parent, you would need to be the enforcer and incorporate periodic drinking every so often, to ensure your child does not become dehydrated.
In order to prevent the after-effects of being in the heat, it might be wise to plan your trips so you don’t get caught in the scorching sun. Earlier or later in the day might be the most ideal time to venture out with your child. There will be exceptions like if you are going to a place where there is water (beach/pool) for example. If you know a good part of your time will be spent in the water, then go when you want, but if you are going to do a bit of sightseeing, perhaps more planning will be needed. In the same way, if you are going to an indoor event, maybe it's ok to go when you want, as opposed to an outdoor event.
Hope we’ve been able to give you some ideas on how to beat the heat this season.
In addition to the above, don’t forget to schedule some study time for your child.
We’ve still got a few weeks until the end of the summer term, and we have another 6 weeks over the summer break.
Our Saturday and after-school programmes can help keep your child in the swing of things during the term, to ensure they keep up with (and master) the concepts.
Now would also be a great time to consider the complete schedule over the summer break.
Our 3-week intensive summer camp will have your child in ship shape, ready to roll and conquer, come the new school year.
