Am I the only mother that would do this?
So we are on a trip in Mexico for 9 more days. I have 2 boys ages 14 and 8 and they have extremely fair skin, and there is skin cancer in our family genes. Yes, I slather bot of them down with sunscreen myself, just to be completely sure there will be no risk and no worries.

If you have 2 boys my age, with fair skin etc, would you have done the same thing as I did?

Yeah, if i had kids i'd be covering them in suncreme till they were i n their 20's if they'd let me, the sun's a lot more dangerous than people think, i'm guessing the 14 year old doesnt think its too cool having his mum cover him in sun cream, but its the only way u'll know he's totaly covered and tell him that its better being 'uncool' for a while than suffer cancer, i've been a cancer sufferer and there is nothing at all cool about it.

Are you asking, because you think your boys might be too old to be touched by their mum and may feel intimidated? I have two teenage boys, and usually I let them put on their sun-screen themselves and only help them out with their backs. Of course, I double-check.

what a strange question you have already said there a risk of cancer and the boys are fair, what do you want to hear
"no just let them sit in the sun all day with no protection and see who ends up in hospital the first"

Need some help with this
right thing 2 do

Tinky Winky
Why do you keep asking this same question ?
one cause you want praising cause your putting lotion on which is just common sense in my book
two your an attention seeker !

No question about it, I definately would. I had to have an amputation due to malignant melanoma

I would put the highest skin factor cream on them.

You seem concerned about if you have done right thing? WHY?

Any responsible parent would ensure her kids had sunscreen on. You did the right thing.
Skin cancer is in your family you state but you cannot keep your kids in because of this so yes....you did right thing putting sunscreen on them.

how many times you wanna ask this??

mark t
Both my two kids are very fair skinned and I have always carried sunscreen in the car no matter what. Its better to be safe than sorry. My kids are 12 and 14.

Of course!

*´`*♥♡Sarah☺ Beanz♡♥*´`*
you deff did the right thing by trying to keep them safe! Have fun in Mexico

This day and age with what we know anyone who didn't do it would be irresponsible. You definately did the right thing.

you - as the responsible mother did the right thing - why you are questioning this is not clear - however - getting answers from others can only help you in realising this and giving you more confidence for the future -

well I don't know about having two boys your age.(cause I don't know your age.. lol) . but I do slop the goo on my daughter.. she's a red head with fair skin.. runs in the fam.. and so does cancer.. we just turn red and peel and then freckle and do it over again

Owen S
well its better to be safe than sorry hey my mum does that to me and iam 14 i hate it but id rather have sun screen than sun burn !!!!!!!!

fluffy the wonderdog
good job
Coppertone makes a sweat proof aerosol sunscreen with 30SPF that is absolutely great
now i use it everyday and even in the hottest weather it doesn't migrate and doesn't get into your eyes

No! I'm NOT Elton John
Of course I would. Any decent parent would do what you did.

Even if they did not have fair skin, you would want to keep them covered with sunblock and tee-shirts and even hats, if you can keep them on them!

Of course you should be doing that, otherwise they will get burned, it would be sore and dangerous!

hi i have a 7 year old son every time i go away i make him put sun tan on i think you are doing a good thing trying to protect your kids of skin cancer when they get older yes i would do the same as you keep doing it

That just makes sense. There is no reason to feel strange about using a lot of sun screen. More people need to take skin cancer as seriously as you do.

Mitch Connor
I would have made sure they had t shirst on as well but, yes you are defintly doing the right thing

Totally makes sense to me. Good for you.

Of course I would have done the same thing and made sure that they had clothes that would also prevent any sun damage. It sounds like you are a very good mom who really cares for your children. Don't ever doubt yourself when you are trying to protect your children.

yeah you did the right thing even if they did not like it!!!

ER Bunne
I have 17 and 12 yo girls, and we are very careful about their sunscreen. I go to Mexico every year and you'd be amazed how many sunburns I see. Not to mention, little kids trying to put on their own sunscreen. You keep it up. Sunscreen is a medicine, not a frilly lotion. In their later years, they will thank you.

you did the right thing.
i would do the same.

my son is 10 , blonde and fair skinned! i plaster him in cream on holidays until he looks like a snowman! he hates it but thats how it has to be

What an odd question, wouldn't any self respecting mother do that?

I don't get it.

And they would be wearing tee shirts and hats.

Jim G
u did the right thing
