The Six Stages of Food Allergy Parenting
This webinar from food allergy mom and allergy-aware licensed clinical professional counselor Tamara Hubbard shares key skills to help parents support their child's food allergy journey.
October 24, 2022, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET
Have you ever noticed that much of the allergy parenting guidance out there is focused on skills that allergic children should learn at various ages? While that's critical information to know, it doesn't tell parents what THEIR parenting tasks are for each stage of their allergic child's development.
The Six Stages of Food Allergy Parenting framework helps parents understand their tasks, and develop their mindset and parenting choices for each stage of allergy parenting. Parents will gain insights into whether they're focusing on the appropriate tasks associated with their child's stage of development, are falling behind, or pushing too far too quickly. And all of this matters, as it directly impacts a child's ability to gain the necessary skills to learn how to live confidently with allergies.
