#Food, #Allergies, and #Eczema at #DadChat with Mei

Living with Eczema by @MarcieMom

Do your kids suffer from itching? Lack of sleep? We all know how much food can affect our well-being. Many of us suffer from allergies that are food-related or from other sources. These chronic problems are especially difficult for our children who often are too young to understand the pain and discomforts they feel. For parents, NOTHING is worse than seeing your child in pain (or discomfort). Thursday September 18 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET we will discuss this issue with co-host Marcie Mom aka Mei, our favorite #DadChat regular, from Singapore.

Whereas companies seek to actually engage with customers, the Twitter Party is pretty much about swag. It’s about getting something for nothing.
