I accidentally fed a child something their allergic to. Now their mom won't let our kids hang out? Advice?
My daughter had a sleepover with her best friend. I have let my daughter go over to her house several times this year. However, I work full time so I havn't had a chance to have the child over to my house. I finally let them over this past weekend.
My daughter doesn't have allergies and I have literally never had a kid in my home with allergies. Since her mom didn't mention anything about allergies when she dropped her off Saturday (the girl was staying through Sunday to attend church with us Sunday night) I assumed the girl didn't have any. I allowed the girls to help me cook (theye 8) and served the food. The girl didn't object to anything so I didn't know. Long story short, she ate it, reacted and had to be taken to the ER.
I feel bad, I didn't know. The girl didn't even know. Her mom never told her, just said she couldn't eat the food. No reason why. Of course, the girl didn't tell me this. Nor did her mom. However, the mom won't let the girl hang out with my daughter at all anymore. My daughter is heartbroken and I feel HORRIBLE.
Advice? I apologized and made it clear I didnt know but still nothing...
The girl also did not have an epi pen. thats why she was taken to the hospital.
