I am still so scared to let Daniel go on a playdate to a friend's house. He does very well with knowing when he is low--he almost always feels it. However, he does not check his own blood sugar yet and, unless his friend lives on our street, how can I let him go? His older brother often goes on playdates. This is totally unfair to Daniel, I know. I don't know what to say to him. I hate to blame his diabetes outright--because that just adds to the unfairness factor. I've been trying to play the "Joey is older than you" card, but Daniel is 6 now, and that doesn't even fly with ME! Should I just tell him it's because of his diabetes?? He has had friends here--but he really wants to go somewhere else! I've posted about this before, and it seems like a lot of parents don't let their young D kids go on playdates. But I want to let him go!! (But I'm scared to let him go!!) Any advice??
