RE: [IP] leaving children alone



My saving grace was having a cell phone. No matter where I am, I can call
and have my son check his blood sugar. Also, he can call me no matter where
I am. It takes some of the unknown out of the situation. I think the
stablity part is an important factor. If your child tends to drop low often,
you wouldn't leave them as much.

At what age do you leave your diabetic child at home alone?  I understand
the maturity issue but what about the diabetes issue?  Does it depend if
he's been "stable" lately, do you check blood before you leave, do you limit
the number of hours you are willing to be gone?  Thanks. Kathy
