    You've been talking to SD, haven't you?? :D

    Seriously, thanks! SD tries to tell me these things all the time, but it's good to hear it from someone else, too. :cwds:

    SD are my D son's initials. (I need to change it, though, because others use "SD" for "stepdaughter." I don't have one of those.) ;)

    I enjoyed reading this. Although I have a diabetic toddler, some of these things still hold true! Thanks for posting!

    Eric that was totally awesome of you to do this!! You know its really good to read how a teenager feels to us parents(Aaron is still 3) even though my son is a toddler i know he probally feels the same as you and now i know 'what not to say and do.' while he is growing up with D.

    You should consider posting tips for us parents sometimes along the way.

    You Take Care.

    Awesome! No parent could have stated that better. Very articulate, and something all of us need to hear once in awhile.
    I hope you keep posting this awesome advice. As parents, unless we have diabetes, we have NO CLUE how it is for you kids.
    We NEED to listen to what these kids tell us, because it is THIER diabetes, not ours.
    Thanks for stating that so clearly.

    Glad you did the bumpage up. Just returned from a couple years away. It is really a good piece. Tori does tell alot the those things. I sometimes can not help reacting. Good Job. You should give us some more input.:D

    I'm bumping Eric up, too. Lots of terrific advice and nice to see a well-written teenage perspective (even though we're way away from the teenage years). Thanks.
