My youngest (21 months) has PA, I have four older children in school. The elementary school where I have two children has been good about making sure the kids wash before coming home, don't bring home inappropriate food, etc, but I'm really concerned about sending my PA child there. We live in a very rural area and the school is really small, which may be to my advantage. There is just the usual ignorance that you get regarding PA "oh, my nephew has that, but it's not bad, he can eat PB"! There are always lots of parties at the school, they have snack in every classroom every day, etc. I just don't know if I can trust them. I'm sure all of you have dealt with this - what do you do? I've already told my DH that I may homeschool Brian for the first couple of years, until he can understand his allergy and monitor things himself.
