I am sure this thread has been discussed before, but I am curious about how everyone goes about playdates and drop off birthday parties. Jake is 8, he knows how to use his pump but I always double check his numbers before he hits "go" and he has had diabetes for 1 year now. He wants to go on playdates to friends houses and most of the birthdays are drop off now and I don't let him without me. I feel like he should be able to do these things, I want him to have a normal childhood as much as possible, but I am scared for his safety. He is responsible but he doesn't always recognize his lows. He had a 29 and 37 during the last month How do I start letting him do things on his own?
