Preventative Care Tips from Local Parents

Thank you to the local parents that offered up tried and true preventative care! Of course, this advice is from other parents—always consult your pediatrician for medical advice. Here are some of your top tips:

Sharing isn’t always caring. Avoid sharing things like helmets, hats, headphones, scarves, clothes, and brushes. Keep these items separate from others; stored in a personal locker instead of on a coat hook, for instance.

Keep hair tied back at school.

Try these products for preventative maintenance. The science is uncertain, but lice seem to be repelled by certain scents, such as tea tree oil, rosemary, eucalyptus and lemon grass. Some parents recommended adding tea tree oil to shampoo: before doing this, please verify that the oil you are using is safe to be applied to skin—and store away from children, as tea tree oil is poisonous if ingested.

Liz Haskins
Liz is a mom of three equally active and adorable sons, aged six, eight and twelve. As a child, her family moved to Western Springs from Central Illinois, and she and her husband are thrilled to raise their own family here. She works two days a week as a medical assistant, so she tries to fill her time with the boys outside of school with activities that they can all enjoy. This winter, they’ve enjoyed swimming at a few indoor pools, and the boys love going to zoos and children’s museums. In the summer they love to do anything outdoors; they try to hit a different park every week! Their go-to for indoor days are open play spaces that have a range of activities to accommodate her children’s age differences. Outside of being a mom and working, Liz’s passions are photography, reading, and, as an extrovert, she loves meeting new people and connecting over mutual interests.
