Abbey will be 14, we have been at this almost 5 years. She can do her own site changes, but prefers my help. She does pretty well with carb counting, but double checks with me. I try to let her be responsible with keeping her D bag supplied, but I set things out for her to remind her. In middle school, she bolused lunch at the nurse's office and treated really symptomatic lows there as well. Otherwise, she carried most of her supplies with her and treated mild lows in the classroom. Transitioning to middle school is a challenge without D, and our CWD's have there own personalities and levels of maturity. Last year, I thought Ab wanted independence with her care and handed over a good bit of it. That didn't last long, she asked for more assistance because she felt she had enough to do just keeping up with school and extracurricular activities. I was happy to take it back, she has a lifetime to deal with it.
