And that is that the hat can prevent your child from suffering from heat stroke. There are lots of safety precautions that you should take whenever you and your child go outside. For instance, these include applying sun cream and wearing sunglasses. These are important as they can reduce the effects of being out in all that sunshine. Well, hats can also protect you to as they keep the back of the neck cool and in shade. If the back of the neck is ever exposed to too much sun, you will be at risk from suffering from heat stroke.
