I have a 2 yr old and a 5 yr old they don't understand what diabeties is but they know how to react if I'm high or low. they remind me to take my medicine and to check my blood sugar level. They know what could happen if it is high or low .I started teaching them when they first started talking .I explain it to them in a way they cAn understand. I have been diabetic over half my life. Just be patient and try to use imagery or colorss to describe how you feel if I'm high i say i feel red if i'm low i say i feel blue. If i'm ok i say i'm yellow.
