    Seth is 17 now and he has a new girlfriend. Tonight she came over to hang out. When she got here she brought Seth two little sodas for lows. They are so cute :)

    Wasn't that sweet? :D

    I would take this as a chance to talk about the reasons he might go low!

    not with her, but your son.

    Really, I DO NOT want to make light of the issue, norit a "hot topic"

    These are some of the things that we as parents have to consider, with children that are out and about without us.

    IT, has to be considered and planned for.

    OK, jump on me if you have too. But, I met my hubby when I was 14, and well, by 17, we were well on our way.

    That is a cute story. Reading it, I didn't consider that there may be an underlying "message" in the gift. I would guess that you, being there in real life, would have caught that something was not quite as sweet and innocent as it seemed.

    We worry about out kids' future mates and how they will handle diabetes. I think this girl just opened the door for some education!

    Yes, I would have noticed. I have a LOT of experiance in dealing with teens.

    There were no hidden messages. It is very new, she was just being thoughtful. Her mom is great she is pretty sheltered. Seth goes for smart, athletic, good girls....

    I think this girl will make at the least a great friend who wants to learn about D. She sounds like she is open and caring, which is a good combination in my book.

    Apparently because some people are scared to say they think the OP's son is having sex.


    To the OP, even if you think you know what your teen(s) are doing, don't fool yourself into thinking you know everything, because you don't.
    Not a knock on you, it is just reality.

    Chris, thank you for attempting to clear that up. But as I said, I have a lot if experiance with teens. Anyone who has exp. already knows they don't know everything.

    In this case however, she was being thoughtful and sweet.

    Thsnks gor your post Deafmack. You wrre right on the money :D

    That was sweet! I overheard Bobby's girlfriend asking him if he had candy as they were heading out to take a walk one day...I've loved her ever since :)
