I'm Co-Hosting a Food Allergy Chat on The Motherhood!

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.

Hi! Do you know where I can get the transcript to this and also transcript or video to the discussion with the social worker? I did not realize the community was this large with such resources. I have felt very alone from diagnosis. Much of what you discussed in your blog post articulated my feelings of anxiety and attempts to properly and effectively explain the dangers to people.
