This is probably my least favorite subject to write about however dealing with lice has unfortunately become a way of school life for most parents. You may think you’ll never have to deal with it…then the letters start coming home notifying you that some mystery child has been found with it and all must be on lice alert. This started as early as nursery school.
We were lucky to never have to deal with it but enter first grade. These kids share everything. Water bottles, hats, scarves so it is no surprise that it is these pesky parasites are hard to banish from schools. This past school year after seeing my boy constantly itch I found an egg. I never received a letter that lice were in the classroom yet I found out later that there were two kids with full on lice infestation. This goes to show you that it is becoming so common that checking for lice needs to be something we as parents do weekly if not daily. Luckily, my son never had full-blown lice but the little he had was enough to make be a vigilante about keeping us lice free. Now that summer camp is upon us being on it is important and makes sense especially financially as just what I spent in laundry and dry cleaning to assure we didn't have eggs was pricey. I know parents who have spend thousands on ridding lice on their kids.
I asked Lena Gorelik, the Founder of Lice Free Noggins for a few facts and tips on care. I called Lena when after a few treatments on my boy. If you live in the New York City area I found Lice Free Noggins to be fair in price, quick to get back to me and honest about how to deal with lice. A big plus is that their products are natural.
