You're absolutely right, it does have to do with older members of the family not taking us seriously (even if we are in our 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s ourselves!). To me, it is a matter of respect.

The sugar/diabetes thing is really bothering me. If someone says "I can't have sugar" or "I don't eat red meat" people seem to GET IT. But if you turn down Breyers Vanilla Ice Cream due to a nut allergy people look at you like you have 3 heads.

It just means that it will be a looong time before DS can be around these people wihtout a parent present. Not because we don't trust him, but because we don't trust them.

I am enjoying reading everyone's posts no matter how old the posts are! :-) I am dealing with some family responses to my food allergies now and am thrilled to know I am not alone!

Interesting to read some posts from a couple of years ago...

I realize that the brother that I referenced two years ago who "didn't get it" is also the one who would drive with his toddler in his lap because "it's a gated community and no one drives fast" and who doesn't worry about bike helmets. They get little sun where they live so no idea if they are on board for sunscreen :pipe
