Teenagers and Tanning
My 15 year old recently began going to a tanning bed. We were not for this at all since her grandpa has had several spots of skin cancer removed and has "suspicious" spots removed every 4 months when he goes to his specialist. My husband and I discussed it and finally caved after weeks of her begging. The main reason I caved was that some of her "friends" and alot of other kids in school were calling her names (albino). I hate that I caved for that reason and I hate that kids can be so cruel! She is alot like me and I know what it is like to be light skinned and made fun of for it. Anyway, the reason I am writing this it I want a little imput as to how you all feel on the subject of tanning and teenagers and tanning.
