Question from Buenos Aires, Argentina:
Do groups of parents with children with diabetes together help each other? Is it better for the children to be alone?
Group support can be parent to child, parent and child to other parent and child or also child to child. All are helpful and all work when people are honest. Camping programs can achieve such support just as the Internet groups can internationally. Do what works and what helps!
