My best friend lives two blocks from my house. I usually go there after school and hang out until my parents get home from work. Last week, I had a mild reaction to something I ate at her house. I ran home and took some Benadryl®. I got out my doctor’s phone number just in case the reaction got worse. By the time my parents got home, my symptoms were completely gone, so I didn’t mention it to them. A short time later, my friend called and asked my parents how I was doing. They went ballistic because I didn’t tell them about my reaction. What’s the big deal?
