Ok folks this subject is a little touch, icky and to some gross! I'm gonna talk about every parents nightmare! Head Lice! I recieved a phone call from the school nurse today with the annoucement that Sarah has been diagnosed with the little critters. I sighed and said "Oh great". I haven't had to deal with this since my son was little. He kept getting them and it turned out the babysitter's kids had them and wasn't treated them.
Now for those of you who don't know much about lice here is a couple facts.
# 1 They are not caused by being dirty or poor. Lice are caught by mostly school children due to close contact. Lice can happen to anyone, rich or poor.
# 2 You do not need to treat the entire family. Only the infected person needs to be treated. Everyone needs to be checked but only the person with lice needs to be treated.
# 3 You do not need to cut off the infected person's hair. I did cut my son's hair when he was little because it was an easier way to deal with them and he was a boy!
So wish me luck while I deal with my latest burden!
