Hi Everyone I need your help with a video.
I am trying to do a video about parents and their role in managing their children with diabetes.
The conflict of the Diabetes Police (I don’t really care for that term much)
As parents how do you try to install good diabetic habits with your children without being overbearing?
Does Diabetes management make you stressed? Why? What issues do you face that your children might not see? Do your kids listen to you? Why don’t they listen to you? What are your top frustrations? When do you take a back seat and let you child make choices? If so what choices do you let them make. What would you like your kids to know about your challenges?
Kids and Teens:
What gets on your nerves? Are your parents always asking what your blood sugar is? What annoys you about your parents? What do you think your parents could do differently to make Your Diabetes easier? Have you had fights about your Diabetes, why? Who’s to blame? What freedoms would you like your parents to give you? What don’t your parents understand about your diabetes? Do your parents make it more or less difficult to manage your diabetes? How, what do they do that you would like them to change.
Any input would be great. I wanted to get as much feedback and do a video showing both sides of this issue. What parents want and struggle with and what kids want and struggle with. I want to get this out in the open and see what’s on your mind. I think this video can have the ability to show the points of view from each side. And see we are all playing on the same team!
If you don’t want to post your response for everyone to see you can email me at Bill@1HappyDiabetic.com and I will not use your name in the video.
Thank you all in advance!
