A Fancy Family Trip to Miami Should Be at the Top of Your Bucket List

The beginning of summer was rough for my family. I’m always a bit burned out by the end of the school year since not only am I a mom, but I also work at a local Boca private school. But what complicated everything this year was that my grandfather (at age 92) passed away on June 1st.

Even on cloudy days, there’s still no relief. Ultraviolet rays can cause sun damage before you’ve had a chance to blow up your pool floats! (And we LOVE our pool floats.) That’s why I am excited to share some parenting hacks for sun protection as we enter the hot, South Florida summer months ahead.

The Skin Cancer Foundation reports that more people in the United States are diagnosed with skin cancer annually than all other cancers combined. Even just a few sunburns can increase a person’s risk. And we certainly know how that goes in Boca Raton! On average, the likelihood of developing melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer, doubles after more than five sunburns.
