Last week I asked:
How often do you get to talk face to face with another parent of a child with diabetes?
This week I have a question about how often your d-kid gets to interact with other d-kids.
We recently attended a JDRF Family Day at an amusement park. The trip was 150 miles from home and we just happened to meet a family that lives two miles from us. Their child has only recently been diagnosed. Since meeting, we’ve had one playdate together. The kids just played as kids do, but the mom and I chatted.
Q has a friend in her school that she adores, but unfortunately she’ll be moving along to middle school in the fall. She also has a cousin, but we don’t see him very often.
So my question this week is:
How often does your d-kid get to interact with another child with diabetes?
According to the poll, the majority of d-kids see other kids with diabetes once every few months. I’d love for you to leave a comment about the importance of d-kids meeting other kids like them. How do you find other d-kids to interact with?
Have an idea for a Sunday Survey? Please let me know.
