Managing Anxiety of Food Allergic Children

Check out this special report from Allergic Living Magazine about stress management strategies to make life easier for your food allergy child.  

This reminds me of just this week when my non-allergic son asked my allergic son, "Can I ask you a question about your food allergy or it will it hurt your feelings?  Do you feel like a normal kid even though you have food allergies?"  Wow, this stopped me in my tracks, and I listened in hesitantly awaiting the answer.  Fortunately, the response was very positive and encouraging to me as a food allergy parent.  And we had a little discussion afterwards.  But I believe we can always be improving, learning, and growing as food allergy families, and this article has some good suggestions to think about.
