Turn a blind eye to something


Recommended Posts

  • Head Tutor

The expression ' turn a blind eye to something' means to ignore something that you know is wrong, or pretend that you don't notice it:

He turned a blind eye to his son's problems at school. 

The following idiom has a similar idea. See if you can complete it:

 He ..................... his head in the ........................... so he wouldn't notice his son's problems at school.


ANSWER: He buried his head in the sand.

Hello Minoo and Serguey,

I would have said the same thing, but someone beat me to it  ^_^

Here is another version with a slight difference: "He has his head in the clouds so he wouldn't notice his son's problems at school."
