Parenting programmes for parents of children with diabetes

Two studies have tested a version of Triple P for parents of children with diabetes. As with many long term illnesses, parents face particular difficulties in helping their child manage their illness, associated changes in diet and routines, and medication most effectively. These studies helped us to test new ways of helping parents to help their children with diabetes live happier, healthier lives.
