They actually want this girl to withdraw from the elementary school because, they say, "she is violating our rights."

They are parents now, but it is very apparent that *their* parents never taught them concern or compassion for others - they are just being selfish.

wow that is just bizzarre! I can't say as it really causes any issues for us to make a peanut free lunch for our kids. Their schools have always been peanut free and I have never thought it was a hassel to do this. Most times they don't even have someone in their class with a peanut alergy but makes it safe for that one child who is deathly allergic somewhere in the school. I can't get over the mentality of some people! Makes me cringe thinking about it :(

Yeah. I try to remind people - it wasn't that 50 years ago no one had peanut allergies. It's that 50 years ago, these children would die.

I said pretty much the same thing to someone today.

"We always ate peanut butter and jam sandwiches...blah...blah..."

"yep and 90% of the time people died from unknown causes ALL the time"

Really!!!!!!! is that bad that the kids put their lunches outside a d have to wash their hands. Shouldn't they wash their hands anyway to keep flu and other things at bay. It's not like the poor child can help what they are allergic to.
