I found my diabetes crystal ball and it’s Moira McCarthy’s new book, ‘Raising Teens with Diabetes: A Survival Guide for Parents’. My daughter (diagnosed with type I diabetes at age two) is only nine years old, but the topics Moira covers are the exact ones that keep me up at night as I try to imagine what my daughter’s teen years will bring.‘Raising Teens with Diabetes’ is written in the voice of a mother but with the skill of a seasoned writer and each page makes you want to read the next. I genuinely can’t remember the last book that taught me so much without preaching or making me feel like I was in school. The thought of my daughter’s teenage years still give me pause but now with Moria’s help, I know what will be coming our way and I have a much needed head start on understanding how my family can handle those issues.I really appreciated how the book was structured. It contains personal stories that are told with heart, reflections from Moria’s now adult daughter and easy to follow, common sense approaches to life with type I diabetes that reveal a lifetime of amassed wisdom. I am a thirteen year stay-at-home dad, a seven year caregiver to a daughter with diabetes and I’m putting Moira’s book on my shelf so I can reference it for the next decade.
