UPDATE IN RED: My son is starting Kindergarten and I'm scared. He has allergies and asthma.
My 5 year old son is starting school next week. He has food allergies. He's allergic to eggs, peanuts, treenuts, and coconuts. He allergic to cats, dogs, pollen, tree's, grass, dust, and so on. And he has asthma.
I am not scared because I don't want my baby to go to school or anything like that. I am scared because I have only let a handful of people take care of my son over the past 5 years because of all his allergies. Now I have to trust an entire school to take care of him.
I feel like I'm going to have a heart attack. I don't know how to handle all this. I have read articles about kids who have died because they got a hold of things they are allergic to at school.
Anyone who is going through or has gone through this, I could really use some advice.
Thanks for listen.
I got to meet my sons teacher. The school put my son with this teacher because 2 of her kids have food allergies. The school gave me all the paper to take to the doctor. I really like the idea of putting a note on the door to let other people know that there is a child with allergies in that class room. I am going to see if I can get a meeting with the teacher before school starts. I want to see the class room and ask how things are done in her class.
My son is aware of his allergies and he know not to take food from people. BUt he has never been in a situation where I wasn't there to check the food before he ate it.
