  • YES! Kids hug. They play together, they lay on the floor. So the lice can easily 'walk' off one kid and onto another. How do you think they have outbreaks? YES they should stay home.

  • Yes, because if they use headphones to listen to the computers, they will be on those waiting for th next victim. If the kids share hats, put their heads together (like little girls tend to do), one kids jacket is hanging up touching other kids jackets, etc.....the lice will crawl right over. Kids with lice need to be at home and not spreading the joy to unsuspecting families.

  • You're watching the Today Show!! I'm watching it also and I sat here with my mouth hanging open. I think that they should be kept home, I've watched the kids in my childrens school, while they're playing they'll lean their heads together to "tell secrets" or the girls will hug. How can you keep a child with lice from doing that?
