Mommy Guilt and Head Lice...It’s a Thing.

Mommy Guilt and Head Lice...It’s a Thing.
Updated on

Is it your fault that your children have lice? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!

Whether it’s rational or not, mom’s often feel guilty about a whole slew of things they have very little or even no control over. Are your kids flossing well enough? Are they meeting their developmental markers on time? Are you reading to them enough? Should you be stricter or more lenient? We get it. We know the stress, however irrational, of feeling like everyone is judging you. 

We here at LiceDoctors want to assure you that head lice is NOT something that you should waste your guilt on.

Messy house meme text THERE APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN A STRUGGLE

Having successfully treated over 450,000 individuals, we know the truth. We know who can get lice, and the simple answer is: everyone. Truly. All across the country, all walks of life, all races and communities are susceptible. From mansions to mobile homes, it is not about how clean your children are; studies have actually shown that head lice prefer clean hair over dirty hair. And it most certainly is not about how clean your home is. The scientific fact is that head lice cannot survive off the head for more than 24-48 hours, so it doesn’t matter if your home belongs in a decorator magazine or if your housekeeping could best be described as “there appears to have been a struggle.” 

Head lice do not care where you shop or what car you drive or what your parenting strategies are. They come to everyone, and it’s not useful to spend time worrying about what other parents think. There is a good chance that their children had the lice first, or will have them next, and you may not have been able to prevent your child from getting head lice in the first place.  

There is no shame if your child gets head lice. In fact, more social children are more likely to contract a case since head to head contact is the most common way of passing along lice. Don’t let mommy guilt stop you from bravely tackling this lice problem just like you have every other parenting challenge. And we want you to know that you don’t have to fight it alone. LiceDoctors is here 365 days and nights a year to come to your home and quickly and competently eradicate the head lice. Your technician will teach you good evidence based tips for how to reduce the likelihood that you will have to deal with head lice again, AND the confidence to know exactly what to do if it ever comes back around.
