Last year, I was privileged to join the amazing Lori Sandler of Divvies and several other terrific bloggers and various parenting experts in a wonderfully successful live chat series on The Motherhood web site, a parenting forum that I love. We explored many aspects of food allergies including summer camp, play dates, sleepovers and much more. Here is a link to that chat.
In their infinite wisdom, The Motherhood decided that more food allergy chats are a great idea! Hooray! I appreciate that this parenting forum is so open to addressing the problem of food allergies, and tackling it from many angles. So here are some more details on what will be a fun and informative live chat. Can't attend? You can click the link below (the one right after "Where: The Motherhood, right here") and submit a question. They will also provide a transcript a few days after the talk.
You're invited to The Motherhood for a Live Chat!
What: A live, all-text talk on The Motherhood, called Managing the Anxieties
Around Food Allergies. We're continuing the Navigating Food Allergies
series with a solutions-oriented class on handling the anxiety and feelings of
isolation that can come with managing food allergies. Dr. Jules Spotts will
join Lori Sandler and a fantastic group of bloggers to talk about how it's going
for you and to learn and share ways to make sure allergies don't define your
kids or your family.
When: Tuesday, June 5, at 1 p.m. ET. We will chat
for 30 minutes!
