Here’s the thing: head lice are so prevalent today, that chances are many of your child’s friends have already had it. It is becoming more understood that nits (lice eggs) are not contagious, just the live bugs are, and also that having head lice does not suggest poor hygiene. In fact, head lice are just part of today’s social landscape.
