When the HIV/AIDS epidemic first began, many people had misconceptions about the illness and thought that it was contagious through casual contact. Head lice infestation is another disease that is known for both its myths and facts.
Many people think that only the “dirty” kids get lice. It is true that the insects that cause lice are common in developing countries, but rarely seen in developed countries. But that doesn’t mean that clean, well-groomed American and British kids can never get it.
Another myth is that you get lice by casual contact. You can get lice from sharing personal items, but you don’t get it from shaking hands, hugging or touching kids who are infested. It’s important that kids, parents and teachers learn these facts to avoid ostracizing other kids. Lice is a time of great distress for any child. It’s a time of physical discomfort, mental anguish and a great deal of confusion. In Chadds Ford and beyond, Lice Lifters help parents and teachers to educate their kids about this problem.
