yeah, she doesn't have to be BFF with the girl, but i would stress there may be some facet of the girl that is worth knowing. including many people in her social circle is probably good advice. i suspect that showing any interest will encourage the girl to make more social attempts, which dd wants to avoid? its hard. but i would teach her to be more understanding of it (even if she doesn't spend more time with the girl) to know that some people in the world are very lonely. our suicide rates are higher than our murder rates.

no - sorbet shouldn't have sorbet in it - but the sorbet was labeled that it was vegan and lactose free - so i gave it to her - but she had a reaction - including where it touched her skin. come to findout when i called the company the next day the outsource it's manufacturing to an ice cream company - which means that even if the equipment is cleaned - people/kids with severe dairy allergy can react. the company balked - but they ended up testing the sorbet and it turned out to have dairy in it - so they improperly labeled their product - if it had said "made in a factory that also manufactures dairy" - i wouldn't have given it to her [ Reply | More ]

I had a friend growing up who was allergic to peanut butter. (Maybe other stuff... it was a while ago.) I knew. Nobody at school did. Hell, we had lunch together often and I often had pb&j.

I think that the reason we are seeing so many allergic reactions to foods is that we have been messing with our food supply for years. If you eat meat, as I do, whatever animal you eat is fed something that is not what it "normally" would eat...pigs in Virginia exist because they are feed so much peanut meal, salmon is farmed and fed corn, tomatoes are genetically engineered to last longer by introducing arctic char genes, milk comes from cows who are fed too much estrogen in order to produce more milk. We are what we eat. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I need advice. We're going to move out of the city due to financial issues, but hubby will stay here 2 weeks out of every month for at least a year, probably more, for work. We had already been thinking of moving south, perhaps to Charlotte or somewhere like that, but I am nervous about moving to a brand new city with 2 young girls when hubby will be here most of the time. Then we thought I might move with the kids to be near my mom, aunt, grandma and dad, who live in Florida. Now, I dislike Florida, but my kids love it, and they love their grandma. It might be easier to be in a new place with family around, even if hubby and I don't love it there. We would only stay there til my husband was able to transition his business away from NYC, and then we'd move somewhere permanently. My mom (and I) are concerned about the impact on a 7 year old and a 3 year old of moving them around too much. Should I be concerned about that? Or would the benefits of being near family outweight the negatives of moving again in 1-2 years? Please help! 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
