Parents should deal with their children’s nits

My goodness, an epidemic of lice is expected because the NHS is no longer going to pay for treatment. What rubbish.

In my grandmother’s day they didn’t get free treatment they just had to deal with the problem themselves.

It only becomes an epidemic because parents either forget or cannot be bothered to check their children.

It cost very little to invest in a nit comb and a bottle of cheap conditioner. The time then spend combing through your child’s hair is an ideal opportunity to for chat about what they have been doing at school or to talk about any issues they have.

It is a sad fact that today’s society expects everything to be given to them for nothing.

We need to take care of the NHS.
