During the summer months, adverts for sunscreens are everywhere. These ads tell us about the dangers of sun exposure and the damage it can do to our own and our kid’s skin.
Children’s skin is far more delicate than adults, so knowing which the best sunscreens for kids are, can be confusing. What SPF factor should you choose? What does a broad spectrum mean? And why are some sunscreens potentially harmful?
In this article, I’m going to help you understand all of this and know which are the safest sunscreens for kids.
Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, nor do I have any kind of medical background. I am just a dad! Please take this article as what it is: “Just” some advice from other parents! I don’t claim to be an expert on this subject but have taken my information from sources that I believe to be reputable and reliable, as well as from my own experience with my 3-year old son.
Ever since my wife and I planned our first trip to the United States together with our 3-year-old son Benni, I had this idea in my mind to give my son a digital camera and ask him to take photos of the world, of us, of the sightseeing that we do, the roads we travel etc.
The idea was to encourage him to do what I do with my own DSLR as well: Take pictures of the world the way I see it! Wouldn’t it be great for us and for him to have a collection of pictures that he took himself? Something he could be proud of. And for me, I thought, it would be super interesting to see what attracts his attention, what he aims at with his camera and what he thinks is worth taking pictures of?
I did some research on Amazon and other blogs, but couldn’t really find a “good” camera for my son. They were either too expensive, not robust enough or simply totally overloaded (we’ll get into that later). But finally, my search is over: I think I found the perfect camera for kids! And the award goes to the Rollei Sportsline 64! Keep reading to learn why…
Today I’m going to be looking at table and chair sets for kids. Kids just seem to love anything that makes them feel grown up and that’s why scaled down household items like a table and chairs made especially for children is such a great item for your home. The reason for this may be because kids naturally enjoy learning by copying adult behavior, this is why toys like workshops, kitchens and playhouses are always so popular. Continue reading →
In this article, we are going to look at baby monitors with a camera and see which baby monitors on Amazon are the top rated.
Every parent wants to keep their precious new baby safe, it’s a Dad’s job after all to protect his family. One way to do this is by investing in a good quality, top-rated baby monitor with a video camera function.
Sure, you can get a very basic monitor for just a few bucks, but they won’t have a video display or many of the other features that provide extra benefits and peace of mind. Being able to see your baby as well as hear them, lets you see at a glance if all is well. I certainly wouldn’t have been without a baby monitor when my son Benni was a baby.
With our son turning 3 years old next month, my wife and I recently decided to brainstorm some ideas on how we could teach Benni to become more independent and self-determined. One of the most important things we came up with was the idea of teaching our son to understand the “concept” of time and the idea of setting time limits. And to respect them once agreed on.
The “tool”, if you will, that we decided to purchase in order to achieve that goal is the Time Timer Plus. It is a visual countdown timer (more on this later) and a great countdown timer for kids. Bottom line: It works very well for us. Let’s dig a bit deeper in this review and see if the Time Timer Plus is right for you and your kids as well, shall we?
Did you ever think about hiring a personal trainer? Maybe take lessons to learn how to play golf or how to play the guitar? I certainly did, and I know many people do so! Many of us feel like we need an expert to teach them those complex skills, right?
When I became a Dad back in July 2015 I started to wonder: We hire all these coaches and experts who we pay to teach us all these different skills, but then we somehow take it for granted that we are born as “good parents”. That we don’t need any training on that matter? Even though it’s probably the biggest (yet most rewarding) challenge in our lives!? I certainly felt that way. But deep down I also felt that I could do better…
