What a fabulous end to another school year! I actively included my kids in preparing classes during Food Allergy Awareness Week 2017 for almost 100 kids, ages 11 to 14. My 11 year old and a friend, both anaphylactic to peanuts, helped present 'how to correctly use auto injectors' to all of their classmates. My 13 year old helped prep questions for a game to wrap our 9 years of food allergy classes with her classmates.
Two kids transitioning to very different points in their lives. Half of these kids are moving on to junior high, and the other half are moving on to high school. Yes, as a food allergy mom my main focus is creating a safer world for ALL of our kids with life threatening food allergies. But it’s also about creating a more accepting world for ALL teens living with any life threatening food allergy. These are tough years for many kids and being different isn’t always so easy.
