Hi, I have a nine year old son who one month ago became a type 1 diabetic. It's been a struggle getting him on a routine and even getting him to check his sugar and eat. He is very finicky and does not like to get up in the morning. It's a battle with him every day. His numbers are good but I want them to stay that way. Anyone have any ideas on how to deal with an obstinate nine year old?

award him for getting up and testing and eating maybe even have him help you plan meals for your family…print out a menu together and do "restraunt" at your house!! :) kids love that stuff! possibly make a chart of those things if he has a sticker where hes done it all he gets to pick a movie to watch with you and your family or even do something he enjoys :)
