OK. Yes, there are real nuts (pun intended) out there on the food allergy issue. I agree with that. Some parents play it up to get attention, no doubt, to everyone’s detriment. However, as a parent of a child with a severe peanut allergy, I can assure you that it is real and that its frightening, so please no comments about “natural selection” or “we all had allergies when we were kids and we turned out OK” ... Those comments just show your ignorance.

You need to teach your child to adjust to the world, not the other way around.

Yes, these things are real. I think there's no question that it is getting worse and no one has a definitive explanation(s).
That said, we cannot accommodate every single severe allergy out there. I have a sister-in-law with numerou severe allergies. Perfume, cat dander, incense and tobacco odor being just several of them. They can land her in the hospital pretty easily. She basically has to live her life around her allergies.
People whose lives or healthy are threatened by such commonly occuring ordinary things may have to consider special measures, including home schooling, rather than make everyone else miss out on things like a pet cat, church incense or an oak tree in the playground.

Are you in a city? I wonder if there are as many farm raised kids with nut allergies.

I think the allergy to nuts is why out of control. They clame it is from woman breast feeding their child too long...who knows? Global Warming. Carbons...nut alergy....all wives tales.
