I know that this is a lot to handle, at any age, and that teens in particular are messy and distractible and hormonal (wait, I just described a toddler, lol, ok, this applies to ALL ages). I'm curious how careful your CWD are with their supplies. I find the insulin pen all over the house, in his bed, or by the computer (and I have a spot on the counter all organized for storage). He'll be out and about and check his BG and I'll see his meter just sort of chunked onto the table or sort of near his football bag. The other night we were leaving a restaurant (outdoor picnic table type place) and dh found his Lantus rolled under the table. Got home and we had no meter, he left it there. I'm trying to give grace, and put myself in his shoes, but losing stuff like that isn't really something I can tolerate financially! This particular meter now lives an hour and a half away, I could practically buy a new one for the cost in gas to go get it (add in strips and the extra batteries we keep in there and that's less true). I'm just curious if this is something the rest of you deal with and what consequences have you had help cut down on the carelessness? Clearly in any other situation I'd just say "sorry, it's gone" if he treated something with such casual regard, but not having a meter isn't an option. I could ask him to pay for it, that's an option of course, but he's not really a money oriented kid and would likely shell out the cash cheerfully. I really don't want to punish so much as help him become more aware. Thoughts? Tips?
