I'm not one who usually watches The View but it was on the tv today while I was doing stuff with the kids.

They had someone on who had hints about making life easier with kids. She was doing a lunch segment and mentioned something about not sending peanut butter in if someone in the school has a pb allergy. I was so proud that it was mentioned....

Then Rosie O'Donnell went on to say something I viewed as nasty about how it's out of control and if you send one peanut in then the school goes into lockdown mode.

I was so furious I walked away at that moment. Now I'm wondering if I just misread the situation because I'm overly sensitive. They are supposed to post a recap tonight (after 4pm).

I guess I'm just wondering if anyone else watched or will be watching (I know it plays later in some areas). Did you get the same impression I did? I will spend the day composing an email to The View ladies and let them know how I feel. I know we want to see national attention, but we want it in a positive light!

Obviously I saw it too, as my post in off topic.
I know most people don't like Rosie, but usually I like her. I don't usually watch the view either, but I was sitting here, just listening to the show not really watching it, and I couldn't believe me ears.
Well I showed the letter in my post of what I wrote to Rosie. Maybe one of us can get on the show and explain why it is so important to be protective of our children.

I too felt it might be helpful to write to Rosie ,I feel like my daughter is living on borrowed time , she has to wear an epi pen at school, for someone to make light of this topic is so discouraging, she's a mother she should put herself in the shoes of others.
Everyone deserves to be safe at school.

i for one LOVE rosie. i did not see the show in question here but i would certainly have been surprised. she is someone is consider to be a) a totally wonderful, child-oriented person who adores all children and b) someone who is opposed to discrimination and situations that are unfair; especially considering all that she's been through.
i think it would be good to let her understand the flip side of PA (our side) and then see if she feels differently. i'm guessing she would. i could be wrong, but i doubt it.
i like the view. i think it's even more fun now that she's on it. i'm hoping people won't give her a hard time. (she's gonna have to improve her stance on food allergies though. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] haha)!

i was just thinking...maybe it was just humor....even here at my house with as much thought and seriousness as we place on PA, we would say something like "let's go into lockdown mode, we've seen a peanut!" we would find that hysterically funny. maybe she meant it purely as comedy???? probably not, but i would give her the benefit of the doubt. even if she did mean that schools took PA too seriously, maybe we can win her over to our side.

I LOVE Rosie too and have been thrilled that she is back on television. She makes me happy. Literally!
But that comment was so narrow-minded. Particularly considering her political stance.
She needs an education and I hope the members of this board flood her email!

Her comment which was " this whole peanut thing is out of control , they see one penaut and they shut the whole school down," this was in response to a guest saying " be careful some schools ban peanuts fromschools"
It was very uncalled for and not what any of us need to have said in the media.

It wasn't Elizabeth that made the "don't send peanuts" comment, it was their guest.
But as a young parent, Elizabeth needs to know these things, too!
I am so disappointed about this. Rosie's voice is so widely-heard. I would have expected b.s. like this from Joy, but not Rosie.
I know they are just television personalities, but this really bothers me. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

I just watched the show, and was on my way to write to all of you, when I saw that it was already written about. As soon as I finish this, I am going to write to The View. I would beg all of you to write too. Maybe we can get someone to start to talk about this. Wouldn't that be nice.
I do have to say that whether you like Rosie or not, it is obvious that she represents all of those people who 1. just don't get it, and 2. who have never seen there child stop breathing after an exposure to Peanut or any Lifethreatning Allergy.
People really do need to start to get it. Hopefuly the more we talk about it the more they will get it.
Please, Please, Please write to The View!!!

Still steaming & thinking about what I want to say in my letter . . . perhaps equating her "one peanut" to "one gun" since both can be lethal to a child.
One does NOT have to be educated about PA (or any other condition, or color, or sexual orientation, or religion, & so on) to simply NOT be snide in one's PUBLIC, ON AIR comments about accomodations and safety of others. I expect -- and work very hard to instill in my children -- tolerance and understanding and acceptance of ALL people and ALL differences.
FWIW, my original comment above was not intended to be snarky, but was intended to drive the point home in one simple, direct statement of analogy.
Suppose a clip of her on air comment will make it to You Tube??

i encourage everyone to write. They only know that there is a problem if our voice is heard. On Rosie's website she said that discriminates against all allergy people. I am ?sure? that she is joking, but how insensitive. I have attached my letter to the viewmaster and I also wrote to Barbara and Rosie. The more letters the bigger the voice.
Dear View Master,
I am a mother of a peanut allergy three year old and I am very concerned about the comments made on your show today. Rosie was at the height of insensitivity when she spoke of shutting down schools because of peanuts. My daughter, if even exposed to peanuts in the same room, has a reaction and starts to cough and wheeze. Fortunately, she has never had an extreme reaction which could be anaphylactic shock or worse, but I am prepared at all times with her epi pen if it does happen. I am always on my game with her extreme allergy and I expect that the schools will be too. She has a right to a public education that is safe just like every other American child. You didn't discriminate against Rosie because she was gay, why should my child be discriminated against because she is allergic to peanuts. I was so irritated I turned off your show. I used to watch Rosie's show when it was on and loved it. I have been a fan of The View even before Elizabeth, but today I was disheartened, disgruntled, but mostly disappointed. I know that for viewership you hired Rosie to create conflict and raise issues, but I never thought that the advocating of inflicting pain on children would ever be something that you would sponsor. I would love for you to address this on air, because at two different allergy websites you, Rosie, and your show are THE topics that have created the most corrosive conversations today.
Sincerely,
Allyson Dickinson

I added my voice as well...I tried to be constructive and played to her motherly instincts. I finished by saying that I was greatful to every parent who takes the time to read labels or ask me questions, what I am afraid of is that someones ignorance and lack of compassion would lead to my son's death. Blunt but effective I hope.

I watched The View yesterday and I was definetly offended by Rosie O'Donnell's comment. The comment she made was very ignorant!! Does she realize the outcome if any of her children brought peanuts to school?? Someone should tell her that she could possbile contribute to the death of an innocent child. I plan to write a lengthy letter in hopes of educating people on The View and I am going to request an apology. We will see if I continue watching or not.
Not that I want to beat a dead horse so to speak but, this is why I posted an earlier message about getting the word out by making a brocure to hand out to people. Awareness and seriousness of this problem is key or people will have no clue as to where WE are coming from. Just include basic statistics such as 12 millions have severe food allergies and it could happen to any person at any given time.
I am my son's voice and I will do whatever is necessary to protect him. We have to join forces and stop the ignorance of this problem!!

It wasn't addressed on the show today. But I am still holding out hope that it will come up in the future because they were reading mail that addressed issues from the show that were about a week old. They're probably that far behind in reading their email.

I didn't see the show yesterday but read what was said on here. I've been very excited to see Rosie back on TV (although i've only seen 1/2 an episode) and thought of her comment, "well, at least it's Rosie. Given a little education on PA, I think she would apologize, put an expert on, and educate others as well." She does seem to be a wonderful advocate for children. So I sent her an email....and then I went to her blog. OMG--it's a little strange...I hope she doesn't disappoint. I am really hoping she will be the public voice to help educate for PA once she reads our emails and researches a bit??!!

I've always found her tiresome and I think she's overwhelming the other women on the show... it seems like she's constantly yapping on there now. So maybe that made me a little more ticked off at her comment than I normally would be. Still, I wrote her a letter on the email link. I'll be curious to know if they address this in a later show.

I saw Rosie's comment on the View and I thought it was very insensitive for her to say something like that.
She is somebody that should use her celebrity status to inform and educate people - instead she is obviously yet another person who just dosen't "get" it and I am planning on e-mailing the View also and hopefully with this flood of e-mails they are getting from all of us, maybe they will take a moment on-air to try to educate the public on this serious and life-threatening condition.
Oh, and you know that if it were one of Rosie's children who had a severe peanut allergy, she would be doing public-awareness already.

Can't say my child's even had diaper rash that called for drastic treatement. I shudder at the intensity of diaper rash she might be talking about.
Honestly? Nope. No diaper rash. I'm absolutely obsessive about butts. I think it's the nurse in me. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] I was an every 2 hour diaper changer (while they are awake) and still am with my daughter now. Peachy smooth, pearlescent, [i]kissable butts[/i]. No ****. [i]Literally[/i].
No advice, absolutely not, but I've always bathed my children daily, and always dunk the baby's bottom before bedtime, (despite a daily bath) and thoroughly allow it to air dry after gentle patting with a towel before bed. Despite those recommendations they give new mothers. (BAD MOMMY)
No creams, no powder (definitely no silica), and I mean, it......absolutely kissable bottoms, but no, never had to resort to canine slobber. Do you think she needs to evaluate why it ever reached that point? <<<>>>
It's just [i]unthinkable[/i] for me, a nurse, a mother,......oh, you know, a [i]woman[/i] to not do everything within my power to [i]prevent[/i] another's sore bottom. In particular, my children's. oooOOOOOch.
[i]Forbid[/i].
If the pediatrician pulled back the diaper to check the bottom on the baby, and found [i]diaper rash[/i], I'd be mortified. It's just my hangup. And yeah, I know there are some things that might trigger it, but if it's due to long waits between changes and lack of a good regular rinse, shame shame shame.
Was I off, or did she say she did this with *all* of her children????

My kids would get diaper rashes only when sick, must have been the "full glass" thing because once we got the food allergy thing going, along w/ poor dd's lactose intolerance, no more problems. I was a frequent diaper changer too, work in a nursing home, force of habit. Kids got daily baths, as well as a bottom dunk after a mid-day poop, as a rule no creams, and NEVER powder (ds had asthma). We saw a lot of doctor's, not one recommended the dog treatment, positive I would not have followed that advice though even if I had heard it.
So now the question is, do we really want Rosie to back us all up as a community, when the world knows how she treats diaper rash? Could do more harm than good to have Rosie in our corner.

Well, I might have missed the boat on why, but 2 minutes in a poop sometimes gave my dd blsters. So sad. It could be awful. My first and all, but I thought it was fruit and fruit juice(now thinking corn syrup) and did my best. But before knowing food allergies, she had several bouts of blister bottom, and *not* from waiting for a change.
Regardless, I would not have resorted to a dog licking her hiney! Desitin in thick, gobby layers did the trick an a day or two! And then we just slathered the stuff on her, then ds whether they needed it or not! becca
