My nephew was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes almost 2 years ago when he was 11. He does not want to think about or talk about diabetes, which is understandable since he is so young and the subject is so unpleasant. Does anyone have any suggestions about how to help a child deal with such a difficult subject as type 1 diabetes?
Is it better to teach him everything about it now, or wait until he is older?
