Husband won't take our daughter's allergy seriously!
My daughter has multiple life threatening food allergies, has since birth. We don't eat peanut butter or nuts in our house, to keep it safe for her. My husband decided to eat a peanut butter candy bar tonight in our house right in front of our daughter. I was livid! I immediately took my daughter out of the room and kept them separated the rest of the night. But he said that I was "overreacting" and that I "needed to relax".
I am always fighting with the school to keep her safe, and the last thing I need is to have to fight with him. I don't know what to do anymore. He doesn't take her allergies seriously, despite her having gone into anaphylaxis shock twice. (Both of those were from coming into contact with the allergens, not actually eating them). Any advice would be appreciated on how to proceed from here.
