Does anyone else here experience particular parenting challenges when your T1D child has noticeably high or low BG levels? How do you handle those situations? The various parenting books / websites / advice I'm familiar with say things like, "Don't discipline kids when they're tired or hungry." Presumably they mean to wait when the child is better rested and fed. But if my child is behaving poorly due to extreme BG, that's a long time to wait until he's back in a healthy range in order to discipline him. Yes, if his BG is high, I'm going to do everything I can to bring it back down, but in the meantime, I need strategies that I can use productively to address his behavior. And the strategies that seem to work when his BG is in a healthy range don't work well at extreme BGs. Then there's advice for parenting "the difficult child" which says that such kids need a lot more positive attention and that they're seeking negative attention because adults' responses to misbehavior are much more interesting. OK, I'll keep working on recognizing and reinforcing desirable behavior, including more child-led time, plus bonding, relaxing, and enjoying my time with my child. But I don't think my child is acting out because he's *seeking* negative attention from adults. I think he's having trouble shifting his own focus from whatever distracting thing has caught his attention, to what other people want him to do. He gets much more distracted with extreme BG, enough that I can use that to tell when he's slipping into a low or when the carbs in his food are hitting before the insulin is. What strategies have you found successful for dealing with BG-related difficult behaviors?
