It's a legitimate and dangerous allergy that should be treated as such. It's fairly easy to accommodate a person with that allergy and measures should be taken to do so.

As soon as the entire world learns sign language to communicate with MY child, I will ban peanuts.

I have food and medication allergies and I expect NO ONE else to be accountable for my health and well being.  That said, children who have these allergies need to be taught how to handle them.  When they are to young to handle them on their own then you provide them with ADULT supervision that can.

I'm really not a fan of peanut free schools, and zones.  You're teaching children that they will be placated to forever.  Its pretty bad when people want baseball stadiums to stop serving peanuts for this reason.  Also, I don't believe that someone who is simply in close contact with peanuts is going to have a life threatening reaction--I know some Mom out there will quote me on how I'm wrong blah blah blah, but I think if that were the case then almost anything a child can injest would have at some point come into contact with peanuts or oils.

It's not rocket science. Keep peanuts away from someone with a life threatening allergy. Pretty simple.

It should be handled by the parent teaching the child to manage their allergy,  the world is not peanut free and the sooner they learn that the better!

My kids can live without nut products for the few hours they are at school. There are lots of other options.
