Abstract
The author, whose own sons have Type I diabetes, begins with the shock of diagnosis and how to handle the basic day-to-day needs of a diabetic child. The author leads parents through grade school, junior high, high school (where hormone changes can affect blood sugar), and even college, where, she illustrates, a parent still may be called upon to deal with a diabetes-related situation. The book stresses the importance of always having food on hand, making teachers and friends aware of the child's condition, and continuing to be involved in the child's diabetes care as he or she grows up. Filled with personal stories this book is a must read, especially for parents dealing with a newly diagnosed child.
