Check your kids for Lice. Basic facts about lice

Anyone can get lice. Lice do not care about your age, your gender, or your hygiene. Having lice does not mean that you are dirty! Lice are transmitted mostly through head-to-head contact. It is more common in young school-aged children, but lice do not discriminate. If your child has lice, chances are that they have contacted it from a friend at school. Nap time, dress-up, circle time, and telling secrets are all common ways for lice to be spread. Lice can also (though less commonly) be spread through the sharing of hats, helmets and brushes. It is contracted easily, so, if your child has lice, it's important to have your entire family checked.
