Scott on Disney's Spoonful

Scott Benner

I hear from mothers a lot about a perceived lack of engagement with diabetes from their husbands...


so when Disney asked me to write about being the father of a child with type I diabetes... I used the opportunity to explore that issue in a way that I thought you guys would appreciate and benefit from - sorry you have to click to another site for this article, but unlike the deals I've been able to make with my other freelance work, I can't repost this one on Arden's Day. 


I do think that you'll find it a worthwhile read and the site doesn't have ads or try to sell you anything (though your brain will read the post in Donald Duck's voice). Spoonful is a Disney/Lilly Diabetes initiative and they do a great job of offering content that I think you may enjoy and find useful - I tried to add to that tradition with 'Dads and Diabetes'. I sincerely hope that you like the piece and that it sheds some light on why your spouse may not be as involved with your child's type I caregiving in the way that you want.

For transparency: I was compensated, with a standard fee, for the article.
