You're probably getting inundated with back-to-school flyers right now, and while this might be causing your family some anxiety--the truth is that there's much to look forward to when the school season starts: seeing friends, structured routines and more free time for mom or dad. But there is one thing every parent should be on high-alert for when BTS rolls around.
What is it?
Answer: you need to have a lice kit on hand at home!
According to a survey by Nix, most parents are NOT prepared for the (inevitable) lice breakout that happens for many school-aged kids. While 20% of households with children ages 5-10 have experienced at least one head lice episode, 25% of parents feel unprepared to treat it. (Most parents said they fear Super Lice more than an IRS audit!).
If you're wondering which of the lice kits on the market is the best to buy--again, you should do it as a precaution BEFORE your kid gets sent home with lice--we're partial to Nix's new Ultra® Lice Removal Kit.
