UGH........... in The Chat Board Posted September 4, 2014 Your words and assumptions are loaded with judgement. This isn't personal for me - we have been blessed not to deal with this so far. Families who may have difficulty managing an infestation may have other reasons for this difficulty than not caring. Jumping to the assumption that they don't care and are "gross and unclean" is a very negative way of viewing people. It doesn't show much kindness or grace. Yes. When drunk dad walks out and leaves mom living in the car with 5 kids.....lice is not the priority. Actually getting the kids back to school so she can work her lousy minimum wage job is what she needs. Does that sound like a person who wants to perpetuate the cycle of lice?? I taught long enough to see these tragic situations. Judgment is not kind or helpful.
