Finally, research supports the notion that a mom’s tanning habits are the strongest influence on a daughter’s habits. Well, we have that base covered. I look like a nun who has been under her habit all her life. I basically glow in the dark on the beach. That was it.
I gave it my best shot. I can say NO to tanning beds while she lives at home, but hopefully the message is received and she will make good decisions in the future. In the meantime, I will keep quoting the Mayo Clinic, modeling sun protection and be glad that prom only comes once a year.
