I just read this article by Sandra Beasley, a woman who suffers from an extensive list of deadly allergies. In a nutshell (bad allergy pun not intended), she advocates that parents of kids with allergies loosen up a little bit when it comes to bans and "allergen-free" zones. She brings up a lot of interesting points - for example, that such a sheltered life cannot possibly prepare the child for the real world. She says, "You can only protect us from so much."
What are your thoughts on this?
I think the brings up a wise point of view, but I think it's definitely easier said than done. I don't have any kids, let alone with allergies, but I imagine that if I did, I would do everything I could to protect them. It's hard to curb that protective instinct!
