A family's one rule of no gluten, dairy, or seafood in the kitchen is being ignored by a sister who moved in with her kids. Despite repeated warnings, the sister has continued to cook with gluten, causing severe anxiety and regression in therapy for the daughter who is severely celiac. After a Sunday dinner was made with gluten, the father lost it and kicked out the sister, causing tension with the mother who feels he overreacted. The daughter's health is at risk, and the family is left with the dilemma of what to do with the sister, who can't afford rent and has nowhere else to go. Read on for comments and reactions.
