I recently spoke to a mom whose teenage son has diabetes. Parenting children is difficult and when children have serious health issues, it’s even more difficult. What do you do if your child is diabetic but doesn’t want to do the things he needs to do to keep his blood sugar under control? How do you handle this as a parent when you know there are potentially dire consequences for your child’s failure to comply?
These questions and more are discussed in this book:
The Parenting Children with Health Issues web site is also a rich resource for information.
Kathy Slattengren, M. Ed., has helped thousands of parents from across the United States to Australia through online parenting classes, parenting presentations and parent coaching. Parents excitedly report their success in replacing yelling and threatening with calm, confident parenting. When your children’s behavior is really pushing your buttons, discover how to parent in ways that invite cooperation instead of power struggles.
