    There is a boy in my sons class who is seriously like the nerd of the world.. he is allergic to everything, and has asthma and like all these medical issues and i really dont believe public school is the place for a child with so many problems. Our kids cannot bring in snacks like when they have class parties and things because of this kids food allergies.. their gym class is not allowed to do certain activities that are too rough for the kids.. its just super annoying and im not the only parent who thinks so. but this boys mom is clueless.

    so my son is a very picky eater and he cannot even bring in PB&J for lunch because of this kid. technically the school cannot BAN him from bringing it so i am thinking of letting him pack it anyways.. me and some of the other parents are going to talk to the teacher about this kid and that we want him out.

    is this totally heartless?? i am prob going to do it anyway but i just want to know what other parents think bfore i start talking to a lot of them about my plan.

    my son is in 1st grade btw.
    i see what you are saying… ahh it is late my my nerves are getting the best of my judgement.

    i feel for the kid who didnt ask to be born the way he is. i just get irrated that the ADULTS do not handle the situation better. i am … overprotective?? of my son.. meaning i just want his school expierence to be the best it can be and i dont like him having to sacrifice things.
    Stackso-

    lets leave the attitude. you made it clear that u think i am terrible for my words of frustration against this kid. i appologized. i dont want sympathy i am irritated at a situation. i dont feel thats a cause for you to be so rude.
    Thank you. I understand your angle. As an adult, its something i probably should have considered more before ranting… i am guilty of being *that* parent who would knock over anyone who got in my sons way and thats probably a personal issue of my own.

    i am still trying to work out some sort of compromise or arrangement if possible so that these kids can have a more normal classroom expierence but i guess if worst comes to worse my son will learn to like ham and cheese.

    the look the kid gives when he said” we were supposed to go to zoo but we went to the hospital” is heartbreaking..He realizes how careful he must be and how difficult it can be to live with food allergies. You must always be aware of your allergy during play, movies, etc. The only relaxing safe place is home thanks to these wonderfully diligent parents.

    This is awesome, I am on a facebook group of parents of kids with peanut allergies and someone posted a link to this video. It is impossible for others to understand unless they live with t his daily. The fear of sending your child to school, to a playmates house, ect, is overwhelming, you want your child to lead a ‘normal’ life, but you also want to do all you can to protect them.
