One of the hardest things about having a child with food allergies, is the misunderstanding and lack of support from others, especially close family and friends. Sometimes we are so sure that others don't care or won't care enough to keep our kids safe. I'm guilty of this myself. More often than not, these folks are well-intentioned, it's just that they dont "get" food allergies yet.
Next time you're certain that a friend or relative doesn't care about your food allergic child, listen to "The Cookie Thief" read by Wayne Dyer.
Listen to the whole poem. It takes less than a minute and you will never forget it!
