A mom was berated for giving her child a PB&J sandwich at a Target -- you already know why

Do we need to peanut butter-proof the world because some kids have allergies?

A mom asked a seemingly innocent question on a parenting forum and was hit with some incredibly angry comments. Her query? She wondered if it was “unacceptable” to give your child a snack containing peanut butter in public after she gave her little girl a PB&J sandwich at a store and got a big lecture from a stranger.

While some people responded to agree that the mom did nothing wrong, others were upset.

“So many kids have life threatening allergies to peanut butter. Eating it in a shopping cart GUARANTEES it will be smeared on the handle, etc. Its really awful you would do this [sic],” one commenter said.

“That's actually kind of lousy of you,” another added. “[Y]ou are aware that kids with peanut allergies exist in the world, so it's kind of a D move to let your kid smear peanut butter all over the child seat of a public cart.”

On today’s show, Doc and Kris talked about the story and debated whether giving your kid a PB&J sandwich to keep them quiet in public violates the rules of a polite society.
