Deb honestly my dera it would be difficult but children tend to build lasting relationships and have deep emotional connections withy their school friends. if my child came home to me and told me he had a new friend who was also his lunch buddy and lactose intolerant, the only thing i would do is explain to my child the implications of having a lunch buddy who does not eat milk and then ask her if she is willing to compromise in that way. if her answer is yes she is then the arrangement would stand, and if she said no then that would be that. it is all about the willingness of the child. i would never form an opinion for my child. besides if she did say yes then i suppose she could consume her fair shair of dairy at home. no biggie.View Thread
im so sorry love. have you tried getting a second opinion on this. you cant wait for the insurance ,, your poor boy must be suffering or even worse his condition may be worsening internally and we do not even know. i advise that you get him checked out by ateam of specialists. recurrent and continous coughs in children may be deadly. my little girl is also sick, the doctor gave her anti-biotics after diagnosing her with pneumonia. i am stii waiting to see when it will work.View Thread
