Manuals don't always work

This month I will be posting as part of National Health Blog Post Month. I will be posting for 30 days about different topics in regards to parenting a Type 1 Diabetic and Social Media.

Today's topic is "Find a quote and use it as inspiration"

The quote that I found while trolling the Internet for some inspiration comes from Bill Cosby and it goes like this "In spite of the six thousand manuals on child raising in the bookstores, child raising is still a dark continent and no one really knows anything. You just need a lot of love and luck - and, of course, courage." -- Bill Cosby

Raising a child is hard enough as it is but raising a child with Type 1 Diabetes is even more challenging. There are hundreds on books about there from very amazing people associated with Diabetes be it they have it themselves, they have a child with it, a family member, or a friend but it still comes down to no matter how many books you read or how many times you read that book raising a child with Type 1 diabetes You just need a lot of love and luck - and, of course, courage and hope.

What works for one person or family may not work for you and your family but you need to know what your child/family need are and hope that the moons are aligning good that day and that diabetes plays nicely.
