Hi all, please give me some advice. My daughter is 12 and was diagnosed with diabetes in January after becoming ill with dka. Since school let out for the summer I had a week off, then my mother in law was visiting from out of state for two weeks and this week my daughter is at day camp. Next week I have her signed up for a home daycare where my bosses 9 year old daughter goes. The care taker has 5 kids in her care. No problem right? Except my dd wants NOTHING to do with it at all. She just wants to stay home. I have two older daughters, one is working and the other is in summer school and gets home at 1:00. My dd12 was alone during the school year for no more than a half hour each day after school. But ALL day makes me so uneasy. I'm afraid of her having a low with no one around. Are my fears justified or am I being overprotective? Getting her to go to daycare (hate the baby term) will be a battle at first. But besides the reassurance of her being around others all day I really think she'd enjoy it. She loves making things and the sitter has a lot of art supplies. She's so social I don't know why she'd rather be alone. She loves to play board games ect. And there is an 11yo there as well , the others are young. Any advice?!!
