Kids depending on us for a lot of things. One of those things is knowing they need something when they might not realize it.
Keeping kids cool in the summer can be a very difficult task. But having these several things in mind might just help you, and better yet– help your kid
It is so important to hydrate during those hot summer days. Sweat that our body produces doesn’t get replaced nearing as often as it should be. And what’s more is that kids aren’t able to produce the amount of sweat they might need to do like adults can.
Often times kids end up completely flushed, stricken with headaches or worse because their body has been depleted of water.
So keep water in their hand at all time! Buy a water bottle that is handy for them to have nearby and invest in some ice to keep that water cool and appetizing for them to want to drink.
Some of these things can also be counted for towards pets as well. Keep your pet cool and hydrated especially during those really hot days!
