Caring for Your Child with Severe Food Allergies : Emotional Support and Practical Advice from a Parent Who's Been There

5 out of 5 stars excellent book for those coping with severe food allergies, July 11, 2000

  Reviewer: Bryant Russell from United States

Lisa Collin's book is informative, insightful, and full of the reality of living with life-threatening food allergies. In a society where misconceptions and ignorance about true food allergies is the norm, it is so very helpful to have a book that seeks to enlighten and educate. As a parent of a child with food-induced anaphylaxis, I wish I would have had this book 7 years ago at the time of diagnosis. However, it is still an excellent resource for those of us who are years into living with the knowledge that a trace of peanut protein could lead to a life-threatening allergic reaction in our child.

5 out of 5 stars A must read for families living with food allergies, November 12, 1999

  Reviewer: An Amazon.com Customer

This book is a wealth of information for parents, caregivers, teachers, grand parents and anyone else who has contact with your food allergic children. It is also an excellent resource for those who you are trying educate about food allergies and the importance of strict avoidance of the offending allergen(s). The book is written by the mother of a child with a life threatening peanut and tree nut allergy who has adopted a down to earth approach in dealing with all of the issues that you are faced with when a family member has a life threatening allergy. The author shows you that a realistic approach to keeping your child safe while, at the same time, trying to allow him or her to lead a normal life and be a "kid" can be achieved. She leads you through the stages of life with severe food allergies and the emotions evoked from the usually terrifying initial allergic reaction experience, diagnosis, feelings of guilt, acceptance, practical advice for coping and avoidance, dealing with sometimes doubting family members, caregivers and educators.

As a parent of a little boy with a life threatening peanut allergy, I can truly appreciate the knowledge and first hand experience that the author has in dealing with severe food allergies. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone with food allergy concerns.
