Ok I need a ruling becuause my DH and I have differnet view points on what to tell our 4 year old DD about diabetes. Recently a neighborhood kid told DD that she was going to die this was unrelated to diabetes it was some type of strange childhood conversation about life and death. My DH found DD crying about this conversation becuse she didn't want to die. After several weeks of conversation DD now understands that she is not going to die today. With that said DD was having a difficult time taking her insulin last night at bedtime. She was upset and stated she didn't want to take the injection becuse it burns. I was in her bedroom talking to her when DH come in and asked what was going on. I told him that DD did not want to take insulin and she was upset about it. DH then says to her "You will die without the insulin so take it", she continues to fuss and be upset and he then states "Fine we will just let you die" and walks out of the room. I was so upset about this and when I confonted DH and told him that this was inappropriate to tell her that she was going to die he just looked at me told me I was wrong there was nothing inappropriate he knows because he's a nurse. (He works in the OR) So can I get a ruling here, would you tell your 4 year old that she would die without insulin out of frustration because she doesn't want to take it? Do you find this to be inappropriate or some what abusive? DD asked me this morning if she was going to die today becuse she didn't want to take her insulin.
