This review is from: 487 Really Cool Tips for Kids with Diabetes (Paperback)
This is a good book with interesting tips and ideas for teens and college age kids. While the book does deal with the topic of drinking and insulin, it is not in a "lush/Greek chug" kind of manner. I don't recall anything about pot in there (especially in it being OK) but I would agree that it is more of an adult read. Once you have read it,then pick what you want to discuss with your children about the ideas from the book. It is a realistic look at how teens and college kids handle life with diabetes. While you may dream and hope your child never wants to touch alcohol in college, will dilligently change out their sites and watch their BG levels, we all know that in the end they are all possibly forgotten when having fun with friends, under the stress of finals or what not. This book helps you prep them and yourself for ways around these scenarios and how to deal with them. Better to be informed than in the dark.
