As a pediatrician, I have mixed feelings about the verbification of the word "parent." So often, parenting has a negative connotation (helicopter parenting, over-parenting, you get the gist...). We get too involved, we have too much to say, and, though we mean well, we often stand in the way of life's important lessons. But in the case of the spotlight on inflated EpiPen pricing, you go parents. Make some noise! Perhaps we should shift some more of our energy to similar grassroots parenting movements.
This article describes a study published in the journal Pediatrics suggesting that as many as 6 million kids in the US have food allergies, and 40% of these kids have had severe reactions.
