We admit to being helicopter parents of a first grader who is allergic to peanuts. Peanuts are everywhere and this is the first time he’s taking his lunch. What can we do to make people, as well as his classmates, aware of the seriousness of his allergy? The school health clinic has his EpiPens and we hope he’s prepared for a life threatening emergency, to the best of his seven-year-old ability.
