about parenting allergic children...

My husband is quite distraught about the allergic reaction, and worries about our daughter's future, and we both want to do our best for her to live a full, happy and healthy life...

Anyone read this book?

Thanks,

Kim, I can highly recommend Dr. Sicherer's book. It gets into the psychological issues of raising a child at risk, and beyond the obvious.

I just bought that book in November. I am only part of the way through it but it is very well written. Lots of medical information too. It touches on new areas of research that always gives me hope too. I talked about this book somewhere else on the forum too. It is well reviewed by FAAN also.

I just finished reading that book by Dr. Sicherer. It is very good; very thorough and easy enough to understand. I would highly recommend that book. :wink:
