dealing with the heat

I don't know about other people's children, but mine want to play outside no matter how hot it gets.

I make sure to keep them well hydrated. Lots and lots of water. Potassium if needed, and salty snacks if wanted, too. Lots of bananas and other fresh fruit is helpful. Staying in the shade, taking breaks and resting, wearing hats, playing with the hose, and using suntan lotions always makes it easier to deal with the heat.
