All about what you can do to prepare for move in day.
Create a sick day kit
Sick happens – especially in college dorms. Prepare a sick day kit and give it to your T1D before they leave so that you can rest easy when your child catches a cold or the stomach bug, knowing that they have everything you would be providing them if they were home.
Your child most likely wants to be the keeper of their diabetes at this point, and that can be hard for some parents who have been so involved. Talk to your child and find out what you can do to help them at this stage in their lives. Something as small as picking up their prescriptions at the pharmacy and dropping them off can be extremely helpful to your child, and make you feel involved and helpful in their new life. Talk about what is going to help them, and you, with this transition.
