    With 20 people replying they can help, we do have quite a club or parents of teenagers with Type 1 diabetes. It is good to know there are others with older children.

    Kristi : My son is younger (15), but I am here if you need me.

    I feel D is really difficult during the teen years. The kids want to be independent and don't want our help. They are angry in general!

    Communication is almost nil about D. Asking a question and getting the answer is like pulling teeth :( It is very fustrating for parents.

    It is hard to discuss this on the forums because 1- alot of people have young kids and don't really understand what it is like when your child is older and 2- people judge and make comments to hurt your feelings.


    I hope you work out this bump in the road:cwds:

    I just wanted to thank each and every one of you that replied and offered to help.

    It has just been rough around here.

    I sat down and had a good talk with Kaleb and I think we have a plan that will work for everyone (fingers crossed ).

    I know I am late, but you can add me to the list as well. Jacob is 14 going on 40--you know, he knows it all already, he was dx'd at 5.
