This is a good book with interesting tips and ideas for teens and college age kids. While the book does deal with the topic of drinking and insulin, it is not in a "lush/Greek chug" kind of manner. I don't recall anything about pot in there (especially in it being OK) but I would agree that it is more of an adult read. Once you have read it,then pick what you want to discuss with your children about the ideas from the book. It is a realistic look at how teens and college kids handle life with diabetes. While you may dream and hope your child never wants to touch alcohol in college, will dilligently change out their sites and watch their BG levels, we all know that in the end they are all possibly forgotten when having fun with friends, under the stress of finals or what not. This book helps you prep them and yourself for ways around these scenarios and how to deal with them. Better to be informed than in the dark.
As the parent of 4-year old recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes I was unsure of what her life would be like. This book gave me great hope that she will be able to live a very normal life. I found it very encouraging. Yes, all kids make mistakes and most make some un-wise choices. The Loy brothers are no exception and I found it interesting to see how they handled some normal teen situations. The Loy brothers are my heros and I hope my daughter is able to live her life to it's fullest like they are.
Thanks for giving parents and kids a practical book on living with diabetes. Bo and Spike show that there is nothing you can't do with this disease. Quick find index allows you to go straight to chapters that interest you. Check out music section. Very talented kids! Great gift idea for newly diagnosed families.
This book starts out with tips for school age kids (like having your mom come and talk to your elementary class) and rolls into tips on how to "lower your insulin dosage" beforehand if you are going to smoke marijuana at a party and how to adjust for drinking mixed drinks and beer. I don't think these are "really cool" tips for kids, at least not my kid. I wouldn't be able to give this to my 11 year old daughter to get any use out of the first half of the book and not be mortified by the second half. If I waited until she was in college, the first half would be totally wasted. This book cannot make up its mind who it is speaking to. Don't waste your money.
This is a great book for any tween/teenager with type 1 diabetes. My daughter got a lot out of reading it. I think, foremost, it was nice for her to read that she was not alone with this disease. It answers a lot of questions about how they can deal with issues of type 1. I highly recommend it to all of you parents of children with type 1.
This excellent book has been a mine of information for both my adult daughter and my three year old grand-daughter. Both of whom are insulin dependent diabetics. Although some of the tips are specifically aimed at Americans, or those with insulin pumps, the main thrust of the book is for all diabetics and their families.
Love the book. I jump right in to learn the tips from what was stated in the book. Thank you for a smooth transaction.
This is a worthwhile purchase, it answers a lot of questions. It is easy to read and would recommend it to new and experienced diabetic patiets and parents and friends and families.
