Dear Alexander,

My family and I are going camping this summer. I'm scared that we'll run out of safe food, and I won't be able to eat anything! Do you have any advice?

Of course! The most important thing you should know is that your parents will make sure you have enough safe food to eat during the trip. Your parents care very deeply about how you eat, and they will bring more than enough food along.

That said, you shouldn’t feel bad for reminding them to bring extra food. There’s no such thing as being “too prepared,” and if you have food left over from the trip, you can always eat it at home!

If they ask why you want more food for the trip, just tell them what you told me – that you’re scared about running out of food. They’re your parents. They want to hear how you feel, and they will do what they can to make sure you feel better.

Good luck!

Your friend,

Alexander Signature
