I am wondering how everyone goes about telling young kids about their diabetes. I babysit and do childcare at my church regularly, and sometimes situations come up where it would be appropriate to tell them I have diabetes, but I don't exactly know how to since they are so young.
I work with kids anywhere from ages 0-8, and sometimes the younger ones (3-4) will want to share their snack with me, or they see my pump tubing and try to tug on it or want to know what it is. Sometimes I have to eat a few glucose tabs while watching them, and try to do it discretely, but they still notice.
So, I'm just wondering if any of you work with young kids regularly, how do you tell them about your diabetes if it comes up? Or do you even tell them? I usually just kind of distract them without saying anything because I'm not sure how to bring it up.
