[b] Don't underestimate how big a deal this becomes as they get older. My friend's DH who is deathly allergic to bee stings keeps his epi in the car (when he remembers it at all) because he won't wear a fanny pack, epi belt, etc. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img] The man has already almost died once, is he trying to do it again?
Not to mention older boys tend to be more reckless (think driving, extreme sports, etc.) and careless with their health in general.
I know it can be very individual, but I think having a PA boy is tougher.
Good question, Smack.

I agree. The whole carrying thing can be an issue. Especially now when it seems that everyone has an issue w/ bringing backpacks and bags into places like the movies or amusement parks because of terrorism. This means that our boys will have to get some type of little pack or bag that they will need to carry, unless they wear the epi on them. I can see this being a real issue for a teenage boy.
