A Deal Gone Sour: The Battle of the Peanut 🥜🛡️

In a family where a 10-year-old girl battles with a rare eating disorder, a father's attempt to incentivize her with a kitten for trying new foods spirals into a dramatic dispute. The mother finds herself caught in the crossfire, torn between supporting her husband's deal or defending her daughter's panic. The situation escalates to a point where the daughter is grounded, sparking further discord.

As the dust settles, we're left with a grounded daughter, a frustrated father, and a mother questioning the fairness of it all.
