You might not think about these bugs during this cold weather, but head lice can happen year round and be a nightmare for parents.
Check for them by parting your child's hair and use a magnifying glass and a bright light. Get an approved over-the-counter or prescription treatment and talk to your kids. Teach them to avoid head-to-head contact during play and other activities; not to share clothes, hats, scarves, helmets, uniforms, towels, brushes, hair ties or headphones.
