Re: [IPk] RE: Today's Dilemma

I agree. Charlie has hypoed and fitted in front of his class and teachers on
a number of occasions. The kids are great, hugely supportive - but it really
shocks the adults and brings them 'to heel'. When Charlie was very young,
about 4 or 5, the school nurse said it was very important that he should
never have to ask to eat/drink etc so he has always had dextrose etc in his
desk, sports hall, swimming pool, music school and in his pocket. I was
always a bit worried he might treat them like sweets and eat them whenever
he chose, but he has not done this.
