Mommy Matters - Taking a selfie can spread head lice!
While the “selfie” craze makes waves around the world, experts warn that physical contact in group photos may lead to an increase in the spread of head lice. Health experts warn that children and teens may be spreading head lice by snapping selfies with friends, particularly when there is physical contact during an outbreak. Other technology such as iPads, tablets and video games are also characterized by close physical contact which may also contribute to the spread of head lice. I chat to Litha Pharma pharmacist Giulia Criscuolo about what parents need to know and can do to stop the spread! Take a listen here!
 
 
 
 

Criscuolo says children should be cautious of head-to-head contact during back-to-school time. “Children often sit close together, sometimes touching heads when using new technology or taking group selfies. They need to be aware that this may contribute to the
spread of lice, particularly during an outbreak.”
 
 
 
Head lice are small, wingless parasites which live on human hair and feed on blood drawn from the scalp, causing itching and sometimes infection. Infestation is most frequent in children and teens and is spread through head-to-head contact as well as through sharing hats, towels, brushes and pillows, says pharmacist, Giulia Criscuolo.
 
She suggests the following tips to prevent head-lice this school term:
 
·Teach your child not to share hats, brushes, hair accessories or to bump heads with friends while using cell phones or other technology.
 
·If you child’s hair is long, pull it back into a bun or ponytail to keep it close to the scalp.
 
·Examine your child’s head and hair for 10 minutes every week under good lighting.
 
·If your child has lice, do not send them to school and alert their teachers immediately.
 
·To treat lice, use a non toxic anti-lice shampoo such as Picksan Lice Stop which contains nature-based active ingredients, including the MelAza extract, derived from a patented neem seed extract, used in India to treat head lice for thousands of years.

#ThrowbackThursday - A political song that inspired millions
We go back to the year 1980 with a song that has moved millions around the world even other musicians such as Bono, Alicia Keys and John Legend. This song is listed as one of the Top 20 Political Songs of all time.
 
 
 
On her 2013 Australian tour Alicia Keys, on learning of the passing of Nelson Mandela, sang this Song with John Legend as a tribute. Here is a live studio version of the song from 1980 performed by the legend that is Bob Marley.
 
 
 
"I carried Bob Marley’s Redemption Song to every meeting I had with a politician, prime minister, or president. It was for me a prophetic utterance or as Bob would say ‘the small ax that could fell the big tree’. The song reminded me that freedom always comes with a cost, but for those who would prepare to pay it, maybe ‘emancipation from mental slavery’ would be our reward." — Bono of U2

Mommy Matters - Water safety is your priority!
It only takes 3 minutes under water without air for permanent damage to set in, after 6 minutes it is too late. NEVER leave a child or baby unattended at a body of water. Kids drown in a few cm's of water and if they have never had their head under water - they usually get a fright and swallow water. Don't wait until your child is a little older, babies can learn water safety from as young as 6 months. Janine van Staden from "Little Blessings" swim school shares her expert tips on how to become water wise at home - take a listen below!

We are the scatterlings of Africa!
This weekend belongs to one of the greatest South African musicians of our time! It's Johnny Clegg weekend on OFM.
 
 
 
Johnny Clegg’s 2010 album ‘Human’ features a host of little people on its sleeve. Created by painter and sculptor Norman Catherine, the wolf-people, leopard people, flame people, fish people reflect both our character and diversity, as well as what brings us together. We’re all different yet we’re all human! Such is the message that permeates the songs written by the “White Zulu”.
 
 
Johnny Clegg is one of South Africa’s most celebrated sons and this weekend OFM is playing all of his hits! During the show you have a chance to win R1000 but you’ll have to tune in to hear the keyword you need to SMS to go into the draw. Tune in to hear which songs are dedicated to his son and a former president.
 
In 1969, Clegg formed the first prominent racially mixed South African band, Juluka. The music was both implicitly and explicitly political. Later Savuka (Clegg’s second band after Juluka disbanded) released ‘Third World Child’ in 1987, with songs like "Asimbonanga" ("We haven't seen him"), which called for the release of Nelson Mandela, and which called out the names of three representative martyrs of the South African liberation struggle – Steve Biko, Victoria Mxenge, and Neil Aggett.
 
In 1999 Nelson Mandela joined Clegg and Savuka, on stage during a concert in France while performing Asimbonanga.
