For those of you who have one child with allergies and one that does not, ever worry or run into the problem of the one without allergies getting upset that they can't have the foods or a pet because of their sibling?

My children are 2 1/2 and the other is almost 5. The older one has PA, also allergic to mold, dust, pollen, cats, dogs and horses. We have not run into that problem yet, but I can guess it will be coming up soon enough. How do you handle that? I really feel sorry for my 2 year old, especially on the pet subject. There is only so much you can do with a fish!

Thanks!
