So, a little over a week ago, I was feeling the need to help my son get motivated to bring down his blood sugars. I did something I'd never done. I offered him a large reward if he would reach a certain 14-day-average goal.
I was a little worried at first that it was bad parenting. That it might build an unrealistic expectation for the future.
Well, it will remain to be seen what the long-term results are. But the short-term results have been nothing short of fantastic. I'm amazed at how his attention to detail has elevated. It's been so great to see him double-check his blood sugars after a meal or before eating a snack. Well, I'll just say I've been very happy.
He thinks he'll reach his goal by the end of the week. Which honestly is much faster than I thought would even be possible.
