    Sun gazing?

    Hello, first time posting.

    My mom is forcing me to sun gaze for about 5 minutes at around 7 am every day. I mean like, she forces my eyes open and makes me stare straight into the sun. She says that it's good for you and refuses to listen.

    So, my question is, will this damage my eyes longterm? Or is this harmless, or even beneficial?

    Thank you.

    Dear apn,

    That definitely is NOT safe or healthy. It is not harmless.

    Can you tell this to your father, a grandparent, or a teacher at school?

    My father is on board with this idea, unfortunately. How do I get her to stop? She won't listen and keeps referencing whatever pseudo-science doctor she read about on some book.

    Incredibly dangerous to your eyes, please stop doing it. Take her to an ophthalmologist and let the doctor explain the risks that this is doing...

    I've told her that it's bad countless times, and wikiepdia says that it's complete bs.

    She refuses to listen to me and says that I don't have to sun gaze,
    but I don't know how to get her to stop.

    She doesn't trust scientists (she's not very smart). Help?
