Question from Elkhorn, Wisconsin, USA:

My boyfriend's two year old son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a week ago and I am having a hard time finding information and/or books to help my seven year old son to understand this. I don't want there to be resentment or bad feelings because of the change in our lifestyle. Do you have any suggestions?

Answer:

For starters, you might want to start with Jean Betschart’s It’s Time to Learn About Diabetes . See also our web page on Books for Kids and Teens With Type 1.
