Show Notes

In this episode of the Just My Type podcast, co-hosts Sami (type 1) and Dobie (type 2) want parents and children to listen up to hear how to have a healthy relationship with their diabetic child. Sami shares her experience as a child, how her parents approached this disease with her, and she shares some tips for parents to NOT be overbearing parents or guardians. Dobie gives some helpful advice on how to improve diabetes with your child, rather than not practicing what you preach. This episode is filled with great advice and words of wisdom for parents to maintain a positive, encouraging, and trusting relationship with their child.  C’est la vie, baby!
