Now that technology has drastically changed the ways in which we live our lives, the same applies to the way our children play.
Back in the day, outdoor sports were everything. Even now, children need to be encouraged to put down their iPads and tablets, and go outside and play.
However, the California sun can get really strong sometimes and can actually be a health risk for your young ones.
Here is why your children need shade sails, whether they are playing in your garden or in a playground.
UV Radiation Can Be Harmful
While a little bit of vitamin D never hurt anyone, too much sun isn’t a great idea, especially in the boiling California summer season.
While sunblock can be a decent preventative measure against the sun, it’s never a guarantee that your child will be protected, especially if the rays of the sun are extra strong.
If your child is playing in the garden during the day time or if you decide to build your child a playground, make sure that you are at least providing ample protection from the sun.
Suntans and sunburns are common if your child is exposed to excessive sun exposure, and prolonged exposure over long periods might even cause long term damage to the outside layer of skin.
Too Much Sun Can Cause Dehydration
Too much exposure to the sun can cause dehydration, so make sure your children have bottles of water with them while they play.
Shade sails are useful because they prevent direct rays of sunlight from hitting your children. Direct rays of sunlight can cause a lot of dehydration, especially while your children play games and run around after each other on the playground.
While sunscreen offers some degree of protection, a shade sail is your way to go.
