This is a huge problem and needs to stop! The cycle of bullying is very distressing for children and their parents, how can we help?
Almost 8% of children in the U.S. are allergic to foods such as peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, and shellfish.
The study, “Child and Parental Reports of Bullying in a Consecutive Sample of Children with Food Allergy,” was published on Christmas Eve in the online issue of Pediatrics. Led by Eyal Shemesh, MD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Psychiatry at Mount Sinai, researchers surveyed 251 pairs of parents and children. The patient and parent pairs were consecutively recruited during allergy clinic visits. Patients and parents independently answered questions about bullying due to food allergy or for any cause, and quality of life. Distress in both the child and parent were also evaluated.
