Re: [IP] Re: Huh?

I agree with Susan and Nick regarding depriving children of too many sweets.  
Everything in moderation.  If you restrict and deprive, you are asking for 
resentment later on.  It is possible to keep reasonably good control with 
children and still allow them a pretty normal diet.  The restriction thing is 
also behind the times with either shots or pump.  The thought of someone 
being progressive enough to put their kid on a pump, yet backward enough to 
not no the fundamentals of how it works, and thinking that an old fashioned 
diabetic diet is still called for, is hard to imagine.  Maybe this pump 
parent who restricts his/her kid's diet is just a control freak!
