My neighbor thinks she can control the school just because her child has allergies

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
So my neighbor moved in just as school ended. We are friendly, we talk when we see each other out. We just found out that our kids (her son, my DD) will be in the same class this year. She saw me walking up my driveway with lots of bags full of school supplies. She said "oh getting ready for school"? DD said "yep, mommy got lots of peanut butter". My DD eats sandwiches at school and the only sandwiches she will eat are peanut butter (peanut butter and jelly, peanut butter and fluff, peanut butter and bananas)during the summer, she has lot lunches. Well the neighbor said "I should tell you that your DD won't be allowed to eat peanut butter at school because Jake (her son) has an allergy, I have already called the school and told them that no one can eat peanut butter around my son". Now I know that the school doesn't ban foods because of allergies but I just let it go. I called the school to make sure that they wouldn't be banning it and the secretary said that they will not be. Next time I saw my neighbor, I let her know what I was told and she said "well I will be sending a letter to every parent in the class saying that if they send peanut butter with their kid and her kid somehow gets it, she will sue". It took everything I had not to laugh at her

It's going to be serious lulz when these allergy kids grow up and think everyone should bend to their whims and revolve around their condition.

If your child is so picky that all she will eat is peanut butter, then you have a bigger problem
than your neighbor allegedly trying to control the school. That is not healthy.

Kids cannot be expected to police themselves in this way. Damn irresponsible parenting to completely disregard the lives of other children. Once they're grownups, yeah, I can see not having a ban on allergens, but these are kids and depend on others for their safety.

So let's see here
your kid gets peanut butter and is happy, her son could get seriously sick or even worse - die!
Or
your kid has something other than peanut butter, may have a tanty but will get over it and her son will be safe.
Yeah... selfish!... and I'm not talking about the other parent there!

She does eat other things but as far as sandwiches go, that's about it. She is lactose intolerant so she can't have cheese and ham makes her sick

She needs to be teaching her son not to eat others food. She also should send out a letter stating if your child eats xyz to please to teach them to wash their hands properly.

Not come across as a psycho bitch. He doesn't sound like its deadly maybe hives or something. Personally it's not my problem to cater to your child. Especially if you're being a bitch about it.

My DD is lactose intolerant and ham makes her sick. Actually most meats make her sick so what else can she eat?
