Head Lice

I've been known to send my kid to school with a runny nose or a cough.
But I would never knowingly send my kids to school with head lice. I
heard through the mom grapevine that the triplets in my kid's grade
had lice, yet they never missed a day of school. They exposed all
three first grade classes.

Well guess what I discovered in my daughter's hair last night. I am pissed.

I fear the lice note more than I fear the chicken pox note AND the strep throat note combined.

That is deplorable! To send them to school KNOWING they've got lice? I'm so, so sorry. You have every right to be pissed...AND to make sure she knows it sometime.

I have been through TWO BOUTS of lice since Sept. One of the moms told me AFTER a playdate that her daughter still had them.

They did not want to use RID. Preferring to go a less chemical route. Everyone else did the chemicals and guess what? No lice.

I say if someone is a repeat offender, then everyone in that family gets their head shaved.

My Family recently had a case of head lice to deal with, we bought some natural pesticide free products called "LiceKiller". We even bought the environment kit to treat our home so we didn't get a re-infestation. We purchased the product from Access Nutraceuticals. Here is their website be sure to check it out. "LiceKiller"

The daily hairdryer treatment is supposed to work. It fries them.
