...we had conversations at home about her not allowing ANYONE to remove her medic alert and to make sure that if they attempt to do so that they are aware that it is her medic alert. It's a fine balancing act with the little ones- we teach them to listen to and obey their teachers, but they need to know when and how to assert themselves and to not let anyone remove things like the medic alert bracelettes.


This reminds me of some of the safety talks we havewith our daughter. In regular boring real life, she knows not to throw balls in the house because it could break something, to be polite and obey those in authority (well, she knows but she doesn't always do :roll: ) We also tell her that in times of danger (fire, bully, stranger, medical etc) the rules change. She has the right to do whatever it takes to keep herself safe. She can yell and cry and smash objects in a store to draw attention, she might pee her pants (it's OK), she can break a window to get out of a burning house, she can tell someone who seemsto be in charge "No.".

This applies to adults who unwittingly place her at risk with her allergies.

Great post, Susan. I'll use some of what you've written to have the same conversation with my daughter - thanks!
