As many of you know, my youngest difficult child has developed an allergy to something in common foods. He goes to the allergist Monday and we hope to have a more difinitive answer then. Also, as many of you know, my youngest difficult child is a PRO at sneeking food he isn't supposed to have. Only to end up swollen, with hives and diarrhea. As much as we explain this is what happens, that if he swells too much too fast, he could die, that if he continues to sneek foods we have to keep him on his strict diet because we can't figure out the food allergy etc., he still sneeks food. At school parents can come have lunch with their kid and their kid can have my kid come sit with them. Often times (I use to be guilty of this too) parents will want to give my kid some food or treat that they brought for their kid. Well, my son will eat it gladly. It is a rule in our school district that no parent give food to any child but their own, but it still happens. So here is my idea. I want to make a lanyard with a badge that has a bright colored paper in it stating FOOD ALLERGY. Than on the back again have it say FOOD ALLERGY and have it say DO NOT give this child food, he has a food allergy to an ingredient in many common foods. I was thinking I'd have him only wear it during lunch, but that allows for it to get lost in the shuffle. So I'm thinking I want him to wear it all day and come home with it. I mentioned to husband offering to make one for every kid in the school that has an allergy, but he reminded me the whole point behind 504 is that our son has special needs. So even though others may not be wearing one, its okay if our son is. I want opinions as far as how this singles out my son. If it keeps him safe, I think I'm okay with this aspect. What is your opinion?
