I read a funny quote today. As you can see from the blog I love quotes. It said, “I have diabetes, what’s your excuses?” LOL
Here is another one, “got insulin?” LOL
I just thought I would start this post off with a couple of lame jokes like that. To get you in the right mood. Most of the time when people are mentioning diabetes it is all dark and dreary talk. We don’t want to go that route.
Instead I want to tell you what you can do to make diabetes fun for the kids. And then I am going to tell you how to reverse or eliminate the problem. How would you like that? Kids lives would be a lot more enjoyable if they didn’t even have diabetes.
Until it is overcome though, let me share some great tips that parents can use to ease the burden.
I know it is not something people think is supposed to be fun. But I believe that in regards to children living with this condition (or any other debilitating condition) that we as adults should try to make their lives as normal and fun as we possibly can for them. After all, you only have one childhood in this life. When it’s gone, it’s gone.
I have many fond memories of my childhood and all the fun things I did as a kid. I wish all kids could live a happy healthy life.
But with diabetes children have to deal with some pretty nasty things. No one likes having fingers pricked day in and day out. We can do things to ease that pain a little and offer something to distract their mind away from that.
So tip number 1: Every time the child has to prick the finger reward them with something they love. This will distract them.
Whatever it is that your child loves, give it to them at that time. Whether it is a favorite snack, a movie they wanted see, a video game they want to play, or a toy they love. There are many choices you could use as a reward.
Tip number 2: Let them go to a diabetes camp for kids during the summer! Trust me they will love it. And for once they will feel that diabetes actually caused something good in their lives.
They will see that a lot of other kids did not get to go to summer camp,
Then they will realize they are just a little bit more special. They will know it is because of the diabetes that they were able to go. .
It will be something they will never forget for the rest of their lives.
If you are worried about the cost, financial assistance can be obtained in many cases. To find out more about these camps visit the American Diabetes Association website for more information.
That brings us to tip number 3: Find other kids who have diabetes and introduce them to your children.
So this is where the summer camp and this tip go hand in hand. The kids will find it much easier to deal with the disease when they can confide with other children just like them. They won’t feel so alone and will be able to make friends with others kids who understand what they are going through.
Now this brings me to the second point I wanted to cover in this article. And that is how to reverse diabetes permanently for both you and your children. I have a video I want you to watch about that. I will post it here. Also you can go to the page for the review on how to do it. That way you can comment on the video if you want. See how to turn your diabetes around.
You see I am not all about doom and gloom. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. And that is what we like to focus on here at Mind the Zap! All positive vibes and good vibrations. If keep your mind on that track, it is amazing what you can accomplish and attract into your life.
We are here to assist you in doing that.
