    Hello. I was wondering if anyone knows of a magazine for parents and children with diabetes. Would anyone be interested in a magazine? I wish I had a magazine that my son and I could have looked at together that would trigger conversations and help us both learn. Does anyone have any thoughts??? which is better, online or print??? Thanks!

    I would be interested in a magazine for teens with diabetes. I think it would be cool and make me feel less "lonely"

    Thank you for the feedback. Brenda, I love all of the resources you listed, but didn't feel like there is enough information on children and adolescents. And this website is fantastic and I recommend it all the time. I'm looking for resources that really focus on self-management in children and when they can take over some responsibilities, school issues, and something that offers support to both parents and children/adolescents by focusing on some of the issues they deal with day to day. There are so many families doing great things and I love to hear those stories, too. For example, locally, we have a little boy who is 9 years old and recently started a movement to educate people about diabetes, called "What's Your Type" and focuses on educating others about life with diabetes. I think these stories need to be shared to inspire other families. My son is now 22 and that brings more challenges as a parent and I'm not sure I could ever fully prepare him for life on his own and deal with my own anxiety issues. I guess I will take any resources I can find :) thanks again!!
