My son is six years old. He's had diabetes since he was 3 and 1/2. His behavior has been very upsetting to the whole family. He kicks, pushes, and is very mean. We check his sugar and he's fine (in range 80-120). Could this be his way of rebelling?


It certainly could be a form of acting out his anger over the diabetes. If his sugars are normal when he exhibits this behavior, I would recommend a consult with a child psychologist to explore the roots of his aggression.
