Are parents of non-allergic children really this aggressive towards PA children?
I am new to caring for a newly diagnosed PA child. I just read a recent post from a parent complaining that her child cannot bring a PB sandwich to school just because of one PA child. The thread contained 112 responses, some of which were parents of PA children explaining why, whereas others were horribly vicious attacks by people stating that these PA children are 'not normal' and do not belong in school. They complained that their children have the 'right' to bring whatever food they choose, even suggesting that PA was psychological, not real. I realize that there are trolls on every site, but if this is the belief of even some parents, what would the behavior and attitudes of their children be? What kind of bullying, non-compliance and just plain mean spiritedness can I expect when this little 4 y/o begins to go to school? I would be interested in any experiences others have had with schools, parents and students. Thanks.
