Back to School Nightmare: Lice

Back to school can be full of fun, but it is also full of cooties. Do you have any advice for first-timers?

School means contact. Contact means sharing. And sharing isn’t just about toys.

Children don’t have to be reminded to share when it comes to cooties, colds and flus. No parent is happy about sharing when it comes to discovering your child has head lice.

Like chicken pox, head lice is something almost every child goes through. Babble has seven tips to treating head lice, including the pros and cons of each, from all natural shampoos to professional exterminations.

So, Mill Valley parents, do you have advice for the first-timers? What did you find worked best to rid your child of the little cooties? What didn’t? Any horror stories? How often do you check for lice? Tell us in the comments.
