Children are naturally curious and full of questions.
When the subject of diabetes comes up, what do you do ?
How do you explain it ?
Or do you explain it ?
My purpose for asking is this, months ago I posted both a discussion and an article concerning children, diabetes and communication.
One member responded to my request to order an item (free of charge), that is designed just for the purpose of educating children on the subject of diabetes, and was very pleased with the package and it's contents upon receiving it.
I am suggesting once again that members here, contact this site and place a request for one of these educational kits for children with diabetes, (it's completely free).
If you know of a child who has diabetes, or a parent, grandparent, care giver (I donated mine to a daycare center for chronically ill children), order one and pass it on, help others to become aware of diabetes and the importance of the proper care and management of diabetes.
As diabetics, it's up to us to educate others on the subject of diabetes awareness !
Think about it.
