    From Spring to summer my kids are not allowed to go outside without sunscreen and a hat. The cooler months are fine unless it's hot. It's a rule that I have stuck to after having a melanoma removed last year. It is absolutely not worth the risk. The rules at the same at child care which is great.

    I would rather spend 10 mins putting sun cream on for them only to play for 5 minutes, than risk getting burnt.

    I'm half English so I have pale skin that burns in 5-10min. The kids aren't anywhere near as bad as me but I still don't take any risks. I have the sun smart app on my phone which tells me when sun protection is needed. Today where I live it's between 7:50-3:20, so I won't let them out between these times without sunscreen.
