I was just wondering how involved everyone's spouse is in the care and knowledge of your diabetic kids. My seventeen year old son was dx'd in November 2005, since then my husband has been in what I feel is denial. This is making things very difficult at home. My husband has not attended one class, read a single book or made any attempt to learn about diabetes. I realize that my son is the one who must learn to totally manage this disease (he plans to leave for college in September, but I feel my son will always need support (emotional and knowledge) at some time and how can my husband support my son if he does not understand diabetes? I have given my husband books to read, he has not read any. He refused to attend any classes with us. I don't know what to do anymore. My son has adjusted as well as can be expected for a newly dx'd high school senior. My son seems to accept that my husband is uninvolved. Any advice?
