House Dynamic: My fiancée and I own a house. Her mother and 3 other daughters moved in with us. The 11 year old has type 1 diabetes. The other two daughters are 5 and 13. What can happen if the 11 year old refuses to participate in physical activity? Does exercise reduce her dependency on all the shots? Will it increase the life of her organs? Will something bad happen if she doesn't exercise or do physical activity? Her mom insists that she must do physical things so I've been supportive of that. However, if that is not the case then I'd like to know. My goal is to slowly prepare her (over many years) for when she is on her own and needs to be mindful of things like exercise.
