comment How much sun is too much for a child?
Maybe it's basic to you, but after posting my question I did some additional research myself and found this matter to be very difficult and I did not find any real answer on the Internet, except for a general "be careful". Even the two existing responders struggle to find an answer. I'd love to hear an expert on this topic. But in case you mean "basic" in a sense that every parent should at least think about this important topic, I agree, this is a basic and elementary question.

I did a little research on that and it seems that even simple glass with no additional filters blocks most of the UV-B rays (> 75%) but none of the UV-A rays.

comment What is the best way to respond if my child is picked on by other children?
+1, but I have my doubts about the "you hurt my feelings" part, especially when teenagers are involved. From what I've heard this encourages certain types of bullies to continue with their "effort". In that case a firm "knock it off" would yield better results. (See @HedgeMage's answer for that aspect)

@HedgeMage: This didn't happen to my children, it happened to me, when I was a child. My parents each did react totally different, and in every case the outcome was disadvantageous. Now since I became a father 3 months ago, I'm rethinking many of my childhood experiences.
