Angry Four Year Old
Hi. I am the mom of a four year old PA son (and 6 year old daughter with no allergies). He was diagnosed with his allergy just after he turned two. In the last month or so my son has started really struggling with his allergy. He is angry that he cannot eat everything that the other kids eat. Birthday parties have become especially hard; he is really upset to be eating a cupcake from home when the other kids are eating cake.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to help him accept his allergy? We try to focus on what he can have, bur right now that's not helping. He goes to a peanut free preschool which is great but his elementary school will be a whole other story!
