My 10 year old son was diagnosed August '08. I barely let him leave my side then so this was not really an issue. With the nice weather coming he will be outside more. I don't want to hawk over him every hour to make sure he doesn't go low. Plus I want to allow him freedom to be responsible to check and manage his own care (he turns 11 in April) while with his friends - as not embarrass him :P
How often should he be checking while outside doing things like skateboarding or shooting baskets?
