A first grade girl with a deadly peanut allergy in Florida has caused protests. Evidently her allergy is so severe no one in the school can bring in any peanut product, but these children are also going to have to rinse their mouths out twice a day during school. Protests have been going on. Some parents believe this girl should be home schooled. That it is unreasonable to ask all of the other children to accomodate this child. On the other hand, parents say we need to be compassionate and we always help the needy. I say this, her mother is an ass! If my daughter had such a serious allergy that the smell of a peanut, or a crumb of a peanut in a classmates mouth from the m&m he had the night before could kill my child, I would not be trying to send her to public school. I woud be terrified every single minute that a child would come to school with a peanut stuck to his sneaker. I would home school my child. That mother should home school her daughter. And this is not inconsiderate to say. It is inconsiderate to expect the masses to change for one person. No way. And I would not want my little girl living with the guilt the rest of her life that her breath killed her little friend. Now, is that fair? Do we then force this child in a bubble? Maybe. And that is just the way it is. There are people crippled, blind, deaf, and unfortunately children have cancer and many problems. I am very sad for that. Why does anyone have to suffer? And maybe this mom wants her daughter to be ‘normal’ and live the American public school dream. But, she can’t. It is dangerous. She needs to be watched. She needs to be home. And really, how will this girl go to the mall? How will she go to the park? She can’t. If her allergy is so severe, she does have to live in a bubble I suppose. But she can have a happy bubble. Her mother can set up play dates with children who have brushed, gargled, cleaned their sneakers, and been peanut free for 24 hours. She can control it. In her home. The public school should not have to conform to this child. I am sorry for her. But, she should go home.
