Food Allergy and Family: Join Us on "The Motherhood" for a Live Chat!

I am thrilled to announce a new "Navigating Food Allergies Chat" on The Motherhood! What is The Motherhood? It's a blockbuster parenting web site that offers community, interactive opportunity, live chats and up-to-date information from parenting experts on a variety of subjects.

Many of you have attended these chats in the past, hosted by the wonderful Lori Sandler of Divvies, along with a stellar array of hosts and co-hosts.

This series has covered some great food allergy topics and I'm very happy to be part of this latest chat, as it is just in time for the holidays: Navigating Food Allergies: When Family Members Don't Understand

You've asked about navigating family and food allergies and we've listened. This is a big topic that affects anyone dealing with a  life-threatening food allergy. Now is your chance to talk about how to manage family relationships while keeping your kids safe and happy. We'll talk about how we've coped over the years, the difficulties we've encountered and the strategies that have worked for us. And we'll probably share some laughs along the way!

Here is the description of the chat from The Motherhood web site. And a huge "thank you" to The Motherhood for allowing us to explore this very important topic!

Sometimes even the most well-meaning family members don't understand food allergies as well as we would like. When that happens, feelings and actions can truly run the gamut - from patience and humor to hurt and anger. Join hosts Lori Sandler, founder of Divvies, and Jenny Kales, founder of Nut-Free Mom, and their super panel of co-hosts, for a dynamic live discussion about handling situations when family members "simply don't understand."
Date: Tuesday, December 11th
Time: 1 pm EST
