you are a good brother! Always keep an eye to make sure she is ok, but treat her like every other kid!

Diabetes camps! They're amazing. :3 Let her know she's not different or weird and make sure she's comfortable with her identity as a diabetic!

Visit jdrf.com there are camps she can go to as well as kids hew age that are safe to be pen pals with. And they do offer a kit with some good books to help explain things to her.

The smallest things can help! For example: if you're in public w her and she has to stop and check her BS, be patient/complain and tell her to hurry up. The smallest things are so encouraging!
