    Hi Eric and thanks for all the tips for parents. I admit that I am guilty of at least some of those things you listed, lol. I promise I'll try and do better! You seem like a great kid.

    First of all,....You are only 13?!?!

    Our son will be 13 in June and I don't think he could've written that!! Although I do get the occasional eyerolls and "gawwwwwwwwww"s when I freak over numbers :eek:


    thanks for this great post!!

    Thank you! I'll try to remember to be respectful of my son's feelings now that I know that he probably is thinking of those things without being to verbalize them yet. It's hard to know how much is going over is head, and what he understands yet (he's 6). I know he'll be growing up before I know it, and it is great to know what I can do to keep him from being resentful. I think you are a great resource - thanks for letting me know how it feels to be a diabetic. You are very mature and thoughtful to have written your advice.

    I'm keeping a copy of your post so I can remember the impact my reaction has on my baby-girl. She's very young but I KNOW she knows when I'm upset. You are an articulate guy!

    Bump.

    This is so good, that I thought it should move up again for those parents who may not have been on yesterday.

    Thanks Eric.

    very good job!! i should give this list to my parents becuase they are guilty of some of them!

    i'm gonna add one more thing that i hate when my parents do.
    Parents...when you are out and about with your teen, do not ask them in public if they are "HIGH"!! You and they will know what you are talking about, but probably no one else will! it is always very embarasing for me when my my mom says this.
