Another day of frustration as my 6 year old daughter comes home from school yet again with head lice, now im not ashamed of this as i treat her as soon as i spot them and check her regulary, but what gets me frustrated is the amount of times she seems to get them, its obvious that some parents at her school dont bother to check/treat their kids :x i think this is a combination of many reasons, not knowing what to look for, cost, a childs resistance to be checked. The school itself does very little, the odd mention to check in a news letter so im taking it upon myself to do something!
What i want to do is start a bug busting campaign and include a synchronised check and treat weekend, with lots of promotion including posters, newsletters ect, i also want to get together party type bags which include relevant fact sheets, stickers, badges, even free nit combs/products if poss, the idea is to get the kids involved so i thought a picture to colour over the said weekend with a caption like 'i was a bug buster' maybe turn it into a competition?
the idea is to give all parents the info and material to check the kids at the same time, hopefully erradicating the problem,also educating them on keeping on top of them, tho the school will let me proceed obviously it all has to be free
The help i want from you guys is any thoughts or suggestions?
any ideas where i can ask or help such as free combs, stickers, partybags?
all thoughts are appreciated :)
