How about the wisdom of the ages – a T1 grandparent’s blog?
Well now there is that too. For a starter on the wisdom path how is this little gem?
In order to have a normal, helpful and caring relationship with a T1 child, extended family and friends MUST accept the seriousness of this disease at face value… They must also examine themselves and the distinction between being afraid of the child and being afraid for the child. A little knowledge and education will go a long way toward understanding that you can help keep that child safe and secure and lessen your own fears.
