This book is an excellent resource for parents who are new to having a child with diabetes, and veteran parents alike.

Since the beginning of my career as a diabetes educator, Jean Betschart Roemer has been my go-to author for myself and the families I serve. Her newest publication is thorough, up-to-date, and research based. She writes in a caring, supportive, and affirming manner. Ms. Roemer shares her keen insights that help families integrate the demands of diabetes in their daily lives. Chapters 8 and 9 ("As Your Child Grows Up" and "Living with Diabetes") are treasures! These chapters support her goal for parents to be confident about their ability to raise a child with diabetes. This book provides families with the basics of diabetes and beyond. Managing diabetes can be a challenge, Many strategies are offered so life can be live to the fullest. I heartily recommend this book!
