Mom Confession: "I sent my kid to school with head lice!"

Posted by   + Show Post

Okay, this one gave me the heebie-jeebies JUST WATCHING IT.

My kids have already gotten a couple of "there has been a case of head lice in school" notices this year and if I found out a parent knowingly sent their kid to school with lice I would be PISSED.

And if they had the excuse THIS mom did, I'd be even MORE MAD!


What do you think about what she did - and why she did it?

 I did once.

It was my son's 6th grade field trip day to a ski resort. He had never been skiing and probably never will again unless he goes as an adult.  I noticed lice as he was walking out the door.  I told him to put his stocking cap on and don't take it off.  I wasn't going to make him miss that and I felt the chances of him passing it off to anyone was slim since he was going to be outside skiing all day.  He had probably had it for weeks without us knowing anyway because it was pretty bad.

I would be pissed. We have already gotten two notices of head lice and ive been spending money on conditioners that help prevent it. *shudders i hope they work! 

And who would make their kid suffer like that. It has got to itch having a head full of bugs...  :'(

Its parents like that, that I cant stand... my dd school also had a few cases so far, if I found out a mother knew and sent her kid anyway I would be pissed!! And she would know how I felt! I keep my dd hair with gel and in a tight bun

I'd have to hurt a b. With all my DDs THICK, CURLY hair it's a nightmare. My niece spent the weekend once and guess what?! She had lice and gave it to DD. Her mom knew. I could tell when I asked about it. 18 hrs of searching through her head and 2 treatments it was gone! She tried to send her again with it... I had to get it out her hair as well.

Dd has had lice four yes four separate times this year, she got it at school. I hate irresponsible parents.

I would be beyond pissed. DF's mom is a hairdresser; if DS gets lice we will not only have to sanitize everything, he will have exposed her and she won't be able to go to work until it's dealt with. She can't afford to lose that income just because some idiot was too selfish to handle it right away.

Seriously! For a hair appointment?! That is messed up! Think about other people in those cases. Call the school so they are aware of it and treat the crap!
