“Growing up, coming to terms with, and living through the complications of Diabetes.” Paul Cathcart

Be Honest

While taking into account your child's age, infuse your talks with honesty. When your preschooler asks if pricking your finger hurts, be honest, but also tell them that knowing your blood sugar number is the best way to stay on top of your diabetes. If your elementary school-aged child has questions about how low blood sugar feels, share some of the symptoms while explaining strategies for fixing it. People are empowered by information, and kids are no exception. They'll feel better knowing they can provide help if you need it.

Be prepared for more difficult questions about diabetes, like "Does diabetes scare you?" and "Will I get diabetes, too?" These are challenging moments, and there are no easy answers, but kids will be comforted knowing they'll be cared for no matter what life throws their way. Remind your child that their questions about diabetes are always welcomed, and reassure them that you'll do your best to answer them honestly.

Be Hopeful

There can be a lot of scary parts of diabetes discussions—complications, hypoglycemic episodes, health insurance . . . the list can feel long and daunting. It's important to remind your children that there's also hope. Technology and medicine are developing at a rapid rate to improve quality of life and health outcomes, and people with diabetes are living longer, healthier lives. With support from our families and friends, diabetes is something we can feel hopeful about! Saying these things out loud, especially when your children can hear, can help paint a more inspiring picture of life with diabetes.

Much like living with diabetes, explaining it to your children is a lifelong process. Their expectations and perspectives are shaped by watching you. Through open discussions, honest answers, and positive moments, any fears will be replaced with hope, helping change the perceptions of diabetes.
