Hi everyone - I haven't been on in a long time but have a situation that I hope someone else out there has been through before. My ex husband and I have been divorced since 2009 and since that time he has been involved with a few different women. He has never asked about having one of them be involved in our 4 year old daughter, Shelby's care before. However, he has now moved in with his current girlfriend and is pushing me to allow her to be trained on testing Shelby and giving her shots. I have never met his girlfriend and neither has Shelby. I believe her father just moved in with her a couple weeks ago. I told him I would not agree to it at this point since we do not know her and I feel it is putting Shelby's life in a stranger's hands. I guess I also don't understand why he is pushing this so much because I feel if it is his weekend to spend with his children, he should also be the caregiver. I know that his girlfriend will need to be educated at some point if they stay together, but I really feel that we should all get to know one another first. There is much more to taking care of a young child with diabetes than finger sticks and shots. I can sometimes look at her and know she's low or see how she's acting and know she's high. I guess I am just very afraid for Shelby. I think of her and what she has to deal with on a daily basis already and then to have her father pretty much turning her over to a stranger is just frightening. I don't think it's asking too much to allow some time for Shelby to get to know his girlfriend and vice versa before having her trained. Can anyone give me suggestions or advice?
