Why one place and not the other?
They aren't in class together, only on the same bus. they have spent any time together outside of a 5 minute bus ride for a couple weeks. Yes, she may have been exposed during the bus ride, but I didn't think it was smart to send her for the weekend where they'll be together for 3 days straight, just in case their might be a chance my dd could come home with lice. They don't spend 3 days straight together during school.

We've never had to deal with lice before(knock wood!) and it was my understanding that one needed to continually comb for nits everyday at least until the 2nd treatment was done to be sure it was taken care of.

I'm not really in a position to deal with a lice issue right now as I recently had shoulder surgery and my right arm is useless at the moment making combing hair nearly impossible, stripping beds, vacuuming etc difficult. It's not a risk I was willing to take right now

. Now if dd has already been exposed, of course I'd have to deal with it somehow, but that's different than knowingly sending her away for 3 days with someone that was just treated for lice and could possibly need further treatment, combing etc.

well that makes more sense that they aren't in the same class. Because I was thinking if they sit next to each other all day what difference would sitting next to each other somewhere else make.

I do feel like the responsible thing to do would
Be to reschedule for another time, that's what I would have done, but whatever.
You are doing what any NORMAL parent would do, protecting your kid from further unecessary exposure to a child with a case of lice. I have the feeling that this mom has not taken this as seriously as she should and hasn't washed every piece of bedding in her house, bagged up stuffed animals and other items, and actually spent hours looking for nits. This is my worst possible nightmare, and luckily I haven't had to deal with it but my poor sister did recently and she did not give one hair treatment and have the lice and nits go away. It takes at least a couple treatments and cleaning your home thoroughly. I would never expect anyone to want to stay with my possibly nit infected kid for a weekend party. That mom is a idiot and I am suprised at how many people responded here that they would send their kid. Not me! I would be running out to buy some tea tree oil hair products and avoiding close contact with that girl for a little while. Lice is no joke to deal with, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone that I like .

The op should or course do what she feels is best but I don't know why anyone would be surprised that some have said they would let their child go. All 3 of my kids have had lice and I have had them all at different times. I have thick coarse curly hair that makes it really hard to use the nit comb. Just never had the. issues getting rid of them that some of you have had. For that reason I just don't freak out about them. RID always worked in two apps.
