27% of all kids who come to a martial art school are bullied and the parents are only aware of this 4% of the time!
The long term effects of being bullied are similar to the effects of domestic violence, child abuse and sexual harassment. Wow, this is some interesting data for a severe issue effecting 1 in 3 kids today.
10 Rules for Summer Safety

Sun Protection and Heat Exhaustion
Protect Baby When in the Sun
First, avoid being in the sun between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., and stay in a shaded area as much as possible when outside. Dress baby in a hat, sunglasses, and clothing made with a tight weave. For babies 6 months and older, use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 (SPF 30 and higher is even better) that offers both UVA and UVB protection. For babies younger than 6 months, if adequate shade isn't available, put sunscreen in small amounts on exposed surfaces of skin. Always apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before going outside -- even on cloudy days -- and reapply it every two hours. Even waterproof sunscreen loses its effectiveness after about 80 minutes of swimming.
