Vince has made a lot of new friends in the past few months. Now come sleepovers with these new kids and parents we don't know. His friends in school and their parents know he has diabetes and sleepovers are a bit easier with them, it?s these new friends, from another school, who do not know. The boys find out eventually when they see him test, etc., but the parents do not know. Vince wanted to sleep at one of the boy?s homes the other night, and we said ?no?; D or not, we would not let the our kids sleep over some else's home without us knowing the child or seeing and talking with the parents first. We suggest always that the kids come to our home first so we can get to know them, and then meet the parents when they drop off/pick up. I guess I?m trying to figure out the best way to go about telling parents whose home he is going to about his diabetes? I don?t want to make it out to be so ?extreme? that they decide they don?t want him over (but clearly that is their choice and I would hope they don?t make that choice), I just don?t know how to approach the parents. I do want an adult to know, in the event he needs "help" ... So, my question is: How do you begin such a conversation? What do YOU do? Again, Vince is 15, has had D for 1.5 yrs, he texts us when he has any issue or needs help with something, he is MDI, feels his lows, etc. Every time he says he wants to sleep at someones house, I get this horrible pit in my stomache. Sorry this is so long, I keep thinking about this way too much and thought you all would have some good tips for us. Thank you, all!
