Puberty is a normal part of becoming an adult and may cause many changes in a young person. These changes are different for each individual and affects them physically, mentally and emotionally.
Anyone can get head lice. It has nothing to do with clean or dirty hair, or the cleanliness of your home. Head lice doesn't spread disease, but can cause a lot of frustration.
Signs that your child might have head lice include itching, complaining of a tickling feeling in the hair or sores on the scalp due to scratching. Or, you may get a call from their school letting you know that your child has been checked and has head lice.
Having regular eye exams for your children can find problems before they become serious and affect your child's vision.
The Ontario Government covers the cost of one major eye exam every 12 months for children under the age of 19. Find an optometrist near you.
