Our DD is 10 and have had D for 2+ years. I consider myself a hands-on mom and hubby and I do a lot of the bolusing and checking for her. My opinion is that she's only 10 and shouldn't have to worry about managing D 24/7 at this age and that she will have many years to do this herself when she's an adult. However, part of me wonders if we are coddling too much and in order for her to learn to take care of herself in future, she should be doing ALL of D-management herself. I am guessing that by watching and listening to us talk about D, she will catch on. At school, she is very good about checking when needed and she knows how to correct a high and treat a low. She evens knows to where to look for carbs in the event that a teacher passes out treats. But at home, we do 80-90% of the work and just teach her as we are doing. So, does your child do "everything"?
