So....time to work on my "Matthew List."
Some of you may remember last summer, I had 2 big goals for Matthew:
- Get in the habit of taking his kit when he goes out.
- Recognize his lows and know how to treat them.
This summer, I simply want him to take on another "diabetes responsibility" and it's his choice!
I told him it could be anything from carb counting, to writing his BG in the logbook, to learning to change his pod. Just one small task he can do on his own.
He chose planning his dinner and counting the carbs by himself.
Of course, we talk about carbs, but Matthew isn't really responsible for this yet. This is one step in the right direction.
And I'm excited about that! : )
Question: How do you begin transferring responsibility to your kids?
