My 7yo DS hates doing that now. Hasn't been fantastic since 4 or 5. He would try to wipe it away from both arms. He refuses to have his face applied. Every morning it's me nagging and he talking back re applying sunscreen. We even bought the one he chose, a spray on one.
Do your children have this problem? Do you enforce this? How do you make them apply? Tried all the cancer talk he doesn't seem to get it.
I really wonder if applying sunscreen helps esp when he applies at 830am and out in the sun at lunch...3-4 hours would have passed but better than nothing.
He has to wear a hat when he's out and that's about the only thing he will do cos no hat = no play.
