Hello, I had introduced myself on the "Parent's of children with T1" not realizing there are a Parents of teen board too. We have our first obsticle coming up in a few weeks. My son has asking to join our churches youth group at 6flags in a few weeks. It's a all day trip 9-9 I want him to continue to do things like this and I know in the future I will feel more at ease with him doing them but right now being only a couple weeks into his dx I just can't allow him to go off for a whole day like that.#1 He's not good at counting carbs unless the actual carb count is right in front of him which y'all know places like 6flags won't have them. And #2 he can't take his supple bag on ride and will have to place it in those little cubbies. What if someone take it? And #3 I have no idea if anyone going on this trip has an knowlege of DT1 and what to do in an emergency. I'm just not ready and I feel horrible to tell him no. Sure I could go along but what 14yr old wants their mom following them around like that? Any advice on this will be appreciated.
