Review

This workbook is a must for teens with diabetes and their parents. It offers valuable information for families affected by diabetes whether they have recently been diagnosed or have had diabetes for years. Formatted to inspire questions and interactions between parents and children, it is a unique and refreshing method to improving diabetes adherence and blood sugar control. Revisiting the workbook throughout the teen years will lend itself to continuing to learn new strategies for optimizing diabetes care.
----Kathryn L Eckert, MD Pediatric Endocrinologist University of Nevada School of Medicine

A good tool for teens and parents.
-- --Louise A. Laskaratos, FNPC, CDE, BC-ADM

Managing diabetes can be challenging for parents and teens, but it also provides an opportunity to work together and to strengthen a relationship. This workbook gives helpful suggestions for how parents and teens can work together more effectively with good diabetes management as a goal, and hopefully some bonding and better understanding along the way. ----Eleanor Mackey, PhD Pediatric Psychologist Children's National Medical Center, Washington, D.C.


Help With The Hard Stuff is really about its subtitle: Workbooks for Teens With Type 1 Diabetes and their Parents. Unlike many of our recommended books, Help With The Hard Stuff demands involvement of the parents and the teen. The book is divided into two main sections -- the first for parents, the second for teens. Chapters typically begin with a page of true/false questions that set the stage for a discussion on a topic that is often a source of contention -- for example, glucose monitoring. After exploring strategies for success, the authors present an exercise that helps both parents and teens to make progress. Help With The Hard Stuff can help teens and their families who are struggling to understand better why diabetes care is so important and to appreciate the perspective of the other side -- a critical step toward becoming a team. Highly Recommended. --Children with Diabetes

HELP WITH THE HARD STUFF is a fantastic workbook about handling life as a Type 1 Diabetic teen or as the parent of one. The guide includes information concerning management of the disease for both teens and parents, as well as quizzes before each chapter to test prior knowledge.

This book is divided into two sections, one for the parents and one for the teens.

This is the perfect must-have handbook for both teens living with this disease and their parents. By being divided into two sections, both groups will feel equally represented. It answers all of the tough questions that haven't been addressed in the past, in an easy-to-understand format.

This guidebook provides insight for teens and parents, helping them to better understand this challenging condition.
