According to national averages for public schools,* 22% of the children in your school will have lice this year and they will miss about 2 days of school trying to take care of it. Every day your child is absent, his or her school will lose an average of $70.
But real problem isn’t the lice, it’s the ignorance about lice. If more moms understood how ineffective over-the-counter treatments and home remedies are, they would seek out solutions that really work. The better the solution, the fewer days missed. And that’s good news for both you and your school.
