As many of you know Laura was recently diagnosed Type 2 ( 22 days ago) and put on a strict diet. I found out 2 things on Thursday from the school. First, at lunch they left the cookie off of her lunch tray and I later found out she had gone back to the kitchen to get her cookie (that she knew she wasn't supposed to have). Second, for being a participant in the Spelling Bee all the kids that qualified got a candy bar, including her, and she of course ate it.
What I would like to know is how each of you deal with Cheating/Sneaking food? As I said I know we are just getting her going with all of this and I know it's a lot to take, especially for a child. Any suggestions on ways to approach her about the cheating and sneaking without scolding her and having her resent me and the fact that she has diabetes? Nothing I try seems to work, she cries if I try to explain she can't have this or can't have that or can only have a small portion of this or that and it kills me to make her cry but if I give in it isn't doing her any good either. I'm so frustrated.
