Navigating the teen and young adult years is hard enough, but managing a food allergy can make it feel even more difficult. This episode offers guidance and tips to help allergic teens, young adults and parents navigate these years.
My guest Kortney Kwong Hing and I discuss the following topics:
Various common social & life scenarios, tips for speaking up about safety when shy, tips on how to fit in with friends safely, how/when to talk about your allergy when dating, talking to (and showing) parents you can be trusted, and taking ownership of having a food allergy. We also offer guidance for parents on how to approach teens who aren't taking allergy safety seriously.
