Yeah your sil sounds lazy as f**k. I would be saying no to visits until those kids are not free
If I find them in my kids hair I cannot doing anything else until I've treated them. I can't stand the idea of my children having nits crawling around in their hair. It's so awful. I feel sorry for kids whose parents don't treat them.
Big deal. A few years ago I caught them off a friend who didn't treat her kids because "they'll grow out of them". It was awful. I would wake up to scratch an itch that just never stopped. I was miserable until I realized what it was. Then I spent the next few years paranoid. Who lets their kids suffer through that?? They aren't hard to treat. Sounds like the school needs to educate some very lazy stupid parents. They shouldn't be an issue in any school.
My head itches just at the mention of them 😯 I for DO think they are a big deal and cannot stand the idea of them. Have had them three times (well my daughter has) and every single time they came from my nieces. I dont think my sister ever could be bothered to check their hair let alone treat them. We live in different states and arent really close but it really effing sucks that every single time we do see them our girls share their "friends" and leave me with the aftermath of treating four lots of long hair. We have never gotten them from school because i always put their up and i check their hair evety day/everytime i brush it. But my nieces are just constantly crawling with them which is just terrible parenting.
My daughter kept getting them consistently from prep to year 2, she has thick long curly hair down to her bum. I always treated her but it really seemed like a lot of parents didn't. It did eventually become "not a big deal" because we were so used to treating her constantly. I truly think the school was crawling with them, we changed to a private school (not because of the nits lol) and she's never had then since. I swear they were in the carpets and upholstery at her old school. Makes my skin crawl thinking about them now.
It's a big deal in my home. They drive me insane and I hate nits. I kept my kids home for a day so I could make sure I treated them properly, the school didn't mind but all they told me was it was ok for the kids to go providing treatment has been done. I constantly get the emails of nits have been detected in your child's class too.
Big deal. My daughter has had them 4 times this year then passes them to her 3 brothers because some parent at school is to last to treat their kids hair. My youngest son has ASD and can't stand anything touching his hair. It's painful for him and a night mare for me.
Find some other parents who want to do the right thing and complain to the school. I feel for the kids of course they should removed.
I told my son he was not to take his hat off under any circumstances and wrote a note for the teacher. It helped but he still got them a couple of times. Now I coat his hair in gel and they can't get through it.
We had an issue with nits at school they just kept coming back as some parents didn't treat them. I just did the comb through twice a week. I just couldn't keep putting chemicals on my kids.
If someone has nits then they should be treated. It's not a big deal, but treatment needs to happen every time.
As a kid, i always had nit,s my school had a big problem. my hair was checked every couple days and combed once a week And treated when they were found. My mum sprayed tea tree oil and water in my hair every day but i kept getting them! If i was sent home everytime i wouldn't have passed primary school lol. I do think they should be treated asap but think sending a kid home is a little OTT, especially if the entire class has them
