Here is a link to a discussion on another board. I think Talking Hands has posted on this board before:

nancy023, when I was fairly new here another older member had gone into a discussion forum, much like this one and was talking about PA. She e-mailed me that she desperately needed my help. Now, in remembering that night, nearly four years ago, the discussion was a heckuva lot nastier than it is on the board that you posted, but I learned one thing that night. I'm most comfortable here. The member that contacted me, who had started the discussion on the other board, she was so badly shaken, she couldn't return to the discussion. You know what? I don't even know if she returned here.
For me, PA is simply too emotional for me to discuss with people on the internet that aren't PA parents/people. Does that make sense? And there were a LOT of PA parents posting on that discussion board.
I'm not saying that it's not great people are discussing PA, but, probably for me only, I prefer to stay here.
I hadn't even gotten a chance to read the CNN article yet.
Maybe some of our members can register and join the discussion.
In no way am I saying you shouldn't have posted this (like who the he** am I to say that anyway [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img] ), I'm just saying that for me, personally, I get too emotional when PA is being discussed not here (if that makes any sense).
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

That's fine Cindy. Other people have posted links to discussions in other forums, so I posted this one, but feel free to ignore. Yes, I think it's a friendly discussion about the Connecticut case where the boy's been out of school. I was just surprised how many people, including PA parents, thought the mom should just "shut-up and homeschool" (paraphrasing of course). Well, maybe I shouldn't be surprised any more.
I also wondered if one of the posters was Lisa who used to stir up so much trouble, but it might just be a Lisa-like person.
Best Wishes to you, too.
Nancy

Chrikey, nancy023, now that you mentioned different names, which I won't, I'll be going back and reading all the responses again!
No, I was never suggesting that you had done anything *wrong* or anything. I was just telling you why I can't read discussion, even if it does turn out to be a fairly good, civilized one like this one.
It stems from that story I told above. The poor member who started the whole thing. We had children saying that it's too bad we had children that weren't *normal* and stuff like that. It was really nasty stuff.
I have seen other links as well. I think Cayley's Mom posted on about a discussion that was going on at [url="http://www.todaysparent.com"]www.todaysparent.com[/url] (I may be mistaken).
I just get so emotional and I want to say something. Do you know what I mean? Like in the discussion you've posted, there is one PA parent who has said that her child is allergic to peanuts and peanut butter. Well, I'm sorry, upon reading that I felt like swatting her against the head (much like how I felt when the other PA parent at my son's school asked me which one of my children was allergic to peanut butter). Do you know what I mean?
I hope some of us go over and partake in the discussion, but I simply can't (but now I can't ignore either because you've got me wondering! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] )
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Yes, and totally agree with you that I didn't like the attitude either of shut up and homeschool. I did like the one person who first pointed out the Americans with Disabilities Act and how the PA child should be covered.
I have to go back now. See, you got me! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

darthcleo, are you nice and warm? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] I'm simply asking because I'm jealous and have gone stir crazy as evidenced by recent posts.
The link didn't work for me the last time I tried to use it either. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/confused.gif[/img]
