These parents drive me nuts!

I'm sure dealing with deadly allergies is a nightmare so I do feel for the parents. That said, if it is your child who has the 1 in 10 million allergy than it is you who has to take all the precautions, not everyone else. I'm sorry but that's the way it is.

The school made reasonable attempts to accommodate the child.

FTA: The mother said: "...children have the right to a barrier free education." And normal children have the right to drink milk at school.

When I was a kid, I was allergic to dairy products.  So what happened?  I had juice with my lunch instead of milk, and everyone was happy, the end.

/Meh.
//I wasn't all that happy.
///Damn glad I grew out of said allergy.

My sister is allergic to dairy as well - as a kid it made her deaf(!) Her hearing returned when she stopped dairy completely.

Damn.  Mine was never that bad...but if I had dairy, I would get all stuffed up and start coughing.

You just sparked up a bunch of people's nut allergies. You monster.
 
2014-01-15 08:03:25 PM
See, there's your problem. You banned nuts. Now the nuts want to ban milk. Many people are allergic to various things. Do we all have to give up anything to which someone else might be intolerant? Personally, I was allergic to school. I was also somewhat lactose intolerant, but didn't know until well into adulthood what had been the matter.

Neither milk nor eggs can give someone an allergic reaction by air or topical exposure.

Pack your kid a lunch, end of problem.

No. How does that work? NO.

Does fark off work better for you?

I'm allergic to assholes, but no one has ever banned them from being around me :(
 
2014-01-15 08:06:00 PM
Do they require a doctor's confirmation of the allergy?

I know exactly one person with a severe peanut allergy, my brother-in-law. I know lots of people with "severe" "allergies".

My kid can't enjoy life to the fullest, so dammit to hell, your kids aren't going to enjoy life either.

Someone needs to slap the shiat out of this idiot. My god. So sanctimonious and narrow minded.

Ban milk. From a school. Jesus christ, fark you.

I realize she's someones special snowflake, but the species as a whole would be better off if these defective people who are "allergic to the world" simply died off so their genes wouldn't reproduce...

Well said the mom can send the kid with a lunch and drink.

/Have all these rare allergies always been around? I knew of one kid when I was in middle school that carried an Epi pen in case of bee string.
 
2014-01-15 08:09:53 PM
Maybe a separate school in each district thats allergen free could be the fix?

I came in here to say this. Jesus.

I follow a blogger whose daughter is allergic to peanuts and is gluten-free. You know what she does? She sends a water bottle with her daughter to school every day to avoid contamination on the drinking fountain. Her classroom is peanut-free; the entire school isn't. This is a much more reasonable accommodation than what this crazy biatch wants.

This is just getting out of hand.

" after more than two years of trying to work with staff on a strategy that would keep allergens away from her daughter "

Those two years would have been better spent working with her daughter to understand that she can't eat or drink anything away from home unless she brings it from home.  Without proper training, the girl will be dead in no time anyway - which may have been what God intended anyway by inflicting these life threatening allergies.
 
2014-01-15 08:11:14 PM
Is this school next to a dairy?! The article seemed to describe a non-stop cheese sandwich and milk party.
 
2014-01-15 08:11:33 PM
You absolutely may NOT ban allergens due to the fact that your child is having her feelings hurt by being singled out because of your complete overreaction to someone else eating dairy products. My kid comes home all stuffed up at least once a month. Schools are cesspools of germs- - they WILL get colds there.

Also, you are a stay at home mother. Shut the fark up and home school.

Quit putting apostrophes in front of every farking 's' you ever see, YOU MORANS!

As a parent of a child with a severe nut allergy, you can go to hell lady. You are just making it worse for the rest of us. Instead of changing the world, you need to train your child. Pretty straight-forward rules (my kindergartner can do this) :

- Tell people your allergy.
- Always ask what is in food. If you didn't make it yourself, assume it has your allergy in it and don't eat it.
- If you had an accident or ate something you don't know about, go to the nurse immediately.
- NEVER BE ANYWHERE WITHOUT AN EPI-PEN! Buy two, buy five, buy a dozen. Put one in every car you own. You will always be happy when you throw them out without having used them, compared to needing one and not having it.

Trying to ban the item in question everywhere is akin to baby-proofing your house: it's impossible, and you are lying to yourself.

I learned how to knock a bee out and stomp on it.

And I'm not allergic.

People often wonder at my abillity to pluck a fly out of the air and let it loose outside.
Move on. Live. Learn to cope.
But don't BAN. EVERYTHING.

Jeepers. Just don't stuff poison in your maw.
Everyone on the planet isn't going to stop eating BBQ grasshoppers just because a kid is "allergic" to them.

I strongly suspect the child's allergies are not nearly as severe as the mother is making them out to be.

Keep in mind that while you biatch about people with nut allergies, that nuts can be in the air, and people can still get sick...

With this dairy allergy, I don't see how that would be the case, and it seems like the mother is complaining because they aren't providing the daughter with an alternative snack, which is somewhat valid, but instead of forcing the school to ban it for everyone, she could do thus far differently.
 
2014-01-15 08:14:48 PM
Nuts create a dust that can kill a kid just by contact. I am pretty sure this kid needs to actually ingest dairy products before there is a problem. If the kid's teachers are aware of the issue, they should be able to keep the kid from eating dairy without banning it from the whole school.

For all you calling folks with allergies "defective" and saying they should die off: I think the dying off should start with those who lack empathy for other human beings. So you first.

/this mother should probably look into homeschooling
 
2014-01-15 08:18:41 PM
The kid in my daughter's class with an egg allergy requires requests one accommodation: If we're sending in a class snack, could we please if we remember send his mom an email the night before so she can put something similar but safe in his lunchbox.

The peanut allergy kids, both of them, ask nothing.

GameSprocket: Nuts create a dust that can kill a kid just by contact.



Not according to the science:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nut_allergy
~~Treatment usually involves an exclusion diet and vigilant avoidance of foods that may be contaminated with tree nuts, nut particles, or oils.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peanut_allergy
~~Some reactions have been noted to be psychogenic in nature, the result of conditioning and belief rather than a true chemical reaction. Blinded, placebo-controlled studies by Sicherer et al. were unable to produce any reactions using the odor of peanut butter or its mere proximity.[25]

It's amazing how many people suddenly developed gluten allergies. Half of my wife's extended family has this allergy they never had before. It apparently explains why they're fat?
