Food Allergy Talk W/ Mom & Dad: College Freshman vs. College Senior


Post #182 — Each Saturday, my parents and I have a brief but honest podcast discussion about the challenges of raising a child with an allergy. I’ve never really talked to my parents about the challenges they had raising me. I’m eager to find things out. Maybe their experiences might help someone else, too.

Tomorrow I leave for college. I'll be a senior. This week, my parents and I talk about the difference between how they felt my freshman year vs. how they feel today. (Duration - 4:33)
