Tips

Notice what your loved one does.

EllenMSW

When parenting a child with diabetes, or being the support person in the life of someone with diabetes, notice and acknowledge what the person with diabetes DOES (rather than focus on what the person does not do). And if you are the person with diabetes, acknowledge how much you DO and give yourself credit for your efforts surrounding the diabetes related tasks.
