Sun Safety: The Best Sunscreens for Kids

Sun Safety - The Best Sunscreens for Kids

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.

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.

Why I Don’t Share Any Pictures of My Son Here

Why We Share No Photos of Our Son Title Picture

This block is 100% dedicated to my son, me and our toys. Yet, you won’t find any pictures of my son around here. “Why is that?”, you may ask.

Well, months before our son was born back in 2015, my wife and I made a decision: We will not share ANY pictures of our son on the internet.

You know, back in 2015, when our son was born, quite a few of our friends were expecting or had already toddlers, and many of them shared pictures of them on social media, blogs etc. A few of them even replaced their own profile picture with pictures of their kids. I never got my head around this, but our decision was clear: We don’t want that!

Let me put a quick disclaimer here:

In this post I am going to share my very personal opinion on posting pictures of kids on the internet. I am trying to explain why I *personally* think that it is a dangerous thing.

This article does not bear any intention to judge you or prove you wrong 🙂
