Hi everyone,

Well, I've known for a while that I want to homeschool my son, but now
that we have gotten the diagnosis for a life-threatening allergy to
peanuts, this confirms it. I want to reduce the risk. Am I just being
paranoid? Anyone else with severe allergies?

First of all, welcome! I'm Jenn. I have 3 boys that I'm homeschooling this year. My oldest is Jack. He's in 3rd grade, just turned 8. Then there's Jared who will be 6 on Saturday. And Justin who will be 5 in October. Jared & Justin are both in Kindergarten this year.
I don't think you're being paranoid at all. One of the reasons I pulled my oldest ds out of public school is because he was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes at the beginning of 1st grade. I just felt like I could handle his condition better with him being home with me. He's my child and no one (no matter how well trained they are) is going to care about him as much, or be as cautious, as me.
Happy Homeschooling Mom to:

Jared 8/25/01
Justin 10/18/02

I don't think that's being paranoid either. In 5 months Fritz will be old enough to go to the nursery class at church and he will not be going because he is sensitive to lots of foods and there is a snack time in there that could be dangerous for him.

I don't think you're being paranoid at all! We've just recently turned into a homeschooling family because my son was diagnosed with Chornic Ear Infections. His fevers spike to 106.7 and he gets really sick really easily. To minimize infection (and the amount of trips to the ER.) we've decided to homeschool. You're doing whats best for your child...no one can say you're being too paranoid.

I agree with the other ladies! I don't think you're being overly paranoid at all!

Not paranoid at all. I have a few friends with the same issue and they sit on "pins and needles" while their kids are gone. I think I would do the same in your situation. My kids are allergy free, and I still chose to keep them at home so if anyone is paranoid it would be me, right? LOL

Nope, not at all paranoid. I have severe food sensitivities and intolerances and can pass that to my kids. So far I don't know if anyone has it, but if they do it will make for treating the condition being much easier for them and for me.
