The problem is not so much in the fact of infection, but in the fact that he would be ashamed to talk about the problem, fearing mockery from peers.

In no case do not make this fact the problem, but rather pinch conversation to what has happened naturally and happens to everyone. The feeling of shame and embarrassment is easy to remove if present topic as quite normal, comparable to cold when hypothermia or injury from a fall from a bicycle.
"If the child is small, it is better to build a conversationin gaming and interactive way. You can draw on a sheet of paper a fun and not scary louse and show her the way to the head of another kid's head to your offspring. Next, demonstrate how you would "say goodbye" to these little guests. You can then proceed to the processing head pediculicides special means and fasten your story real action "- Comments Fellow RBOO "Center for Curative Pedagogics" Olga Spiridonova.
By the way, parents often lack of awarenessIt is shown, including, and in the matter of modern ways to eliminate head lice.

And last - if your child is foundhead lice, forget about the principle of "every man for himself." If your family will be solved the problem, it does not mean that it does not occur in the children's collective. Quite the contrary. Ignorance aggravates and accelerates the spread of lice, thus contributing to the re-infection of the child. It is necessary to inform Disease Detection teachers or teachers of kindergarten, parents of other children, nurse school. To protect the child from teasing by peers (especially if he has just started to learn the new class), inform the teacher or health worker to better face to face. In this case, they will inform the rest of the parents, not pointing to a particular student.
