This book provides parents with special tools, insights, and education so they can more confidently and effectively communicate, understand, and empathize with their child's experience with diabetes and their child's relationship with the world around them.

«Parents will feel that they are in expert hands with LeBow, who was diagnosed with type I (aka juvenile) diabetes at age six and then became a psychotherapist and certified diabetes educator. By sharing stories from his clients’ lives and his own, he will comfort families who worry that their kids are the only ones to binge on candy and feel alone, different, and anxious. How do parents learn that their kids have diabetes? One boy, whose babysitter had baked him birthday chocolate-chip cookies, later excitedly told his mom that he “peed 40 times” that day. (Frequent urination, increased thirst, weight loss, and fatigue are symptoms of this autoimmune disorder, believed to be caused by white blood cells that destroy insulin producing cells that they mistake for foreign bodies.) LeBow reassuringly reminds parents that they didn’t cause the diabetes. His tips include figuring out a plan of action with school officials. LeBow ends with helpful do’s and don’ts and links to resources like the Joslin Diabetes Center and Think Like a Pancreas. A reassuring and empowering medical guidebook.»

Booklist

«What a wonderful and very thorough book on living, learning and adapting to the lifetime diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes. . . . This will be a valued go-to resource to be read over and over again by parents and others who help, teach and nurture Type 1 diabetic young ones.»

The Savvy Diabetic

«What a wonderful and very thorough book on living, learning and adapting to the lifetime diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes. It takes the reader (whether it be a parent, a child/young adult with Type 1 diabetes, a teacher or any number of diabetes healthcare professionals) through exactly what life is like for a young person, from the day of Type 1 diabetes diagnosis through all the issues involved with daily life and emotions of this dreaded disease. I particularly appreciated that each topic is discussed from 3 perspectives (the child, the parent and clinical advice) plus an excellent educational narrative. This will be a valued go-to resource to be read over and over again by parents and others who help, teach and nurture Type 1 diabetic young ones.»

«Finally! A book that takes both the parent's and child's perspectives into consideration. Eliot LeBow proves that the first step in helping someone with diabetes is to truly understand their point of view.»

«A must-read for parents of children with diabetes! Eliot provides an engaging book filled with real-life stories that bring the concepts to life. He addresses each scenario from both the children's and adult's perspectives while providing practical insights to managing all sorts of diabetes related situations. I'll be referring many parents to this book.»
