Someone forgot the sunscreen…Ouch!!

To all the people saying ‘s#it happens,’ I have never had sunburn in my life and neither has my daughter. I think it’s awful how this poor little girl has to suffer due to her parent’s/carers negligence.
Everyone needs to lighten the hell up. We’ve all had a sunburn–the majority of us aren’t scarred for life by it. It’s just a fact of life—either that, or stay in the house & keep your kid in a box til they’re 40 so that nothing in the outside world ever touches them.
OH. MY. GOD. It’s an effin’ SUNBURN, people. **** happens. They didn’t leave the kid out in the desert for three days–get over it. Everyone’s had a sunburn at some point in childhood no matter HOW vigilant their parents are. This is ridiculous.
My son is on seizure meds that cause severe sun sensitivity, he has sunscreen reapplied every 20mins and it’s timed by a timer, last year he burnt twice and neither time did we know until hours later. His meds cause the skin to continue to burn for hours, his second burn he wasn’t even outside, the sun light coming into the living room while he was on the floor was enough to cause severe burns (he was 5). When he is in hospital they put special covers over the windows to block all sunlight, when he was there at 16months the child life worker opened the blinds for 30mins and caused him to burn, it happened again at 4. He uses high end sun screen and wears full length SPF 50 clothes and hats, if he can still burn and even burn in the hospital yes **** happens. I bet all you people calling “bad parent” have never had a burn or never had your child burn either right??? I call BS. Get off your high horses!
Thank you. You make more sense than 90% of the drama queens on here—half of whom have never even had a kid.
Good lord a little bit of a sunburn is one thing, but this bad and the marks from a previous burn??? This child’s parents are giving the poor thing current pain and future skin cancer all for a tan that’s going to get her no where… but a hospital when she’s older.
I’ve got kids and I know how easy it is for a kid to get a sunburn. No amount of sunblock will last all day and most sun burns don’t start to show until it’s too late. On another note, why do people insist on sexualizing little girls by putting them in two piece swim suits?! Let her be a kiddo for awhile how about?!
Because 2-piece swimsuits are cute? You’re the only one who’s got issues about “sexualizing” a 2-year old on account of a 2-piece suit. What about people who just let their kids run around in only a diaper and no top at that age? Is that also “sexualizing” them? You’re the one projecting that on the kid, not the suit.
JJ, ******** that you dont see this in the sun. i watch my son close and even with sunscreen sometimes you can tell there is a little pinkness which means its time to get out of the sun. any good parent would know this. also she is like 3 so what kind of parents are they if they are not watching her for that long of a time. you dont get a sunburn that bad in a matter of few mins. sorry but nice try!
The “arrow” is actually a tan line…you can see the outline of another bathing suit with an X shape on the back, so its probably not the first burn she has had.
JJ and Nikita need to get brain scans if they think this is “not a parent fail” and that “it happens”
this is neglect at its finest! whats more, that child should have been getting sunscreen reapplied on the hour, every hour, and shouldnt have been exposed to the sun -ESPECIALLY without sunblock- for more than three hours!!! and “?” whoever you are, you are so right that kid should not have been left unattended O_o
Either you don’t have kids, or YOU’RE the one who needs a CT scan. Kids have been getting burned since time began, no matter how attentive parents are. And, NO–you CAN’T always tell how much sun you’ve gotten until you’re out of the sunlight. Happened to all of us as kids, and no one’s had CPS at their doorstep to whisk the kids away as a result. Get a clue, drama queen.
Poor baby, that hurts like crazy. It happens, but not that bad if sunblock is used.
This is not a parent fail, this can happen even if you cover your kid with sunblock to the point that their white. The sun happens, get used to it.
Thats an arrow on her back. How the hell did it get there?
bad very bad, haven’t they heard of sunscreen??
cause what’s worse JJ-the parent forgetting the sunscreen-or the parent being unattentive to a child still in diapers!! Thos aren’t even pull up’s yet! This baby is less the 2 years old by the looks of it! If the parents weren’t present-they should have been!
How is this a parent fail? Who says the parent was nearby? It happened to me too once when I was a kid, got hella sick afterwards also because of it.. My parents to blame? Hell no, they were not even near me. Also, you do not see this as long as the sun is on the kid, only when the sun is going away, you start to see this.
HELL yeah. Happened to me too, several times. Exactly what I said–often, you can’t tell until AFTER you get home that you’re burnt. People need to lighten the hell up.
Ay mi gorda! Now this is truly shoddy parenting.

Not me… 🙂
Bethann, 7:41 am: I’m starting to get the feeling you’re the wemaster:) Good job:p
Is that an ARROW on her back??
Aw, I think she’s crying!!
This is just terrible. At least when she gets older she’ll know why she has skin cancer.
Drama queen. Everyone’s had a sunburn or two in their lifetime as children, but the majority of people don’t get skin cancer from it. **** happens—kids get a sunburn once in a while. All part of being a kid.
How can you not see this happening when you are out with yith your child?
You can’t. Bet you’ve been in the sun a bit too long in the past and didn’t realize til you got inside how fried you were.
