A different school for allergy freak kids

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
After all these post about you moms with children with like 1,000 allergies (I'm sorry about that btw) there needs to be a different place your child can go. I'm not buying my kid 200 different things because ONE child. Seriously.


Annoying...

ETA- I mean freak as in kids with a billion allergies that any be contained or strange ones that are hard to avoid no matter what you do or unless you change your child's school life almost completely. Not freak like weirdo or anything.

The list of what my child cannot have or bring is ridiculous. If its that serious, home school and I myself have a child with gluten sensitivities

I'm not trying to troll, I seriously posted the way I feel about it.

I guess if people think I'm trolling or whatever lol but I'm completely serious.

And thank you. I actually felt like I should feel bad about thinking that... Glad I'm not alone though!

Oh ok. I have people act very rude to us because of our allergies. Ds has horrible dry skin that is connected to his allergies and I heard someone at McDonald's tell their child to stay away from him because of his nasty skin. I have tried every prescription and OTC skin lotion and cream and ointment but nothing helps.

I meant freak in the sense of a ton of allergies that you cant avoid no matter what you do or like specific ones that are hard to contain without changing everyone's life.

Just because my children along with myself and dh doesn't make us freaks. We just have wacky bodies. But that does not we should segregated from children/people that do not have allergies.

I feel for the kids that have such severe allergies, but I completely agree with you on this one.

I feel u, if my kid had a serious allergy to something very common I doubt I'd expect the whole class to change for me. Food allergies I can understand to an extent. Especially for a kid under 6 or 7 but beyond that it is the parents responsibly to teach their child what not to eat and if needed provide their own lunch. I'm not saying this without experience either. My mom is deathly allergic to strawberries, my dad is extremely allergic to fish and my brother is allergic to most outside allergens. I'm lucky, I'm only allergic to bleach and ammonia, bleach just causes a mild rash but even the slightest amount of ammonia causes my lungs to begin close. Ah some perfumes aggravate the hell out of my sinuses, but that's my problem.

I'm sorry to hear that :(
I'm not trying I make fun of anyone.
But I really think it would make everyone's (allergy children included) life easier. And possibly avoid things such as that while in school.

I'm confused as to what you have to buy just because someone else's kid has allergies? Okay, so a kid in your child's class has a severe nut allergy. I don't think it's asking too much that you don't send nut-related snacks to school. You're not being asked to buy anything extra.

My DH has an absurd amount of allergies and thankfully none of our kids have shown signs of massive allergies, other than seasonal. His classmates didn't have to buy anything just to accomodate my DH's allergies when he was in school.

Agreed. A lot of moms can't homeschool, maybe they are single moms, maybe they just don't want to, whatever the reason, I think there needs to be a certain place these kids can go.

Actually, the law says the child should be educated in the least restrictive environment. That is actually the wording in the law. I have one of those "freak" kids and never expected others to cater to him with the exception of removing the giant bale of hay that a teacher put right outside of his classroom.  Talk about allergies. He is not allergic to nuts, but i have no problem with limiting nuts or chocolate at school. Some of the examples that have been given are over the top.

When my son had a year of massive infections, his teacher and I worked together. He was in 2nd grade. We put wipes on his desk. I went in after school and cleaned his (and other) desks and had sanitizer for him. If it was windy outside, he went to the library. We restricted him, not others. When it came to field trips, I went on all of them. He was also restricted from aerobic exercise. This was an issue for 1 parent in high school. He was in marching band. He was not allowed to march on the field because, according to his specialists, aerobic exercise can be life threatening for him. He played in the PIT, the percussion group on the side of the field. We had to restrict him from carrying heavy items for 2 reasons: one it caused him to breathe heavier and made his condition worse and there was a risk it could rip the mesh around his intestines. One mom saw him kicking a soccer ball and had a fit over his restrictions. He is a boy and we had to remind him that he could not run and play like the other kids, but she was the only one with an issue. Other kids and parents were great about watching him and letting me know if he did things he was not supposed to do....The people who saw him in one attack layed out on the field never questioned the restriction....that was one of the reasons we had to get so strict, he was just pushing something on wheels.
