Hello, today I’m going to talk about a new that I read in the link http://www.guardian.co.uk/. Specifically, my choice is a new about the Diabetes and how this problem affects the childhood and the family. In this new, the mother of Izzi said about the process that they lived around the Diabetes disease. Izzi was 10 years old when she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and her mother say in the article about this disease and how affects all family, included Izzi’s brother with 7 years old.
Really, a child never is ready to confront any disease and maybe, least that, with very much responsibility. I think the children with diabetes need psychological attention because they need understand this problem the better way possible. Is very easy this children feels different about their friends and classmates, maybe they think is very unfair and about this way, they can has depression, a low self-esteem, etc. Because that, is very important the parent to receive psychological attention too, because they must to help their children in this process, also they must to keep calm. Is important too, the siblings like the Izzi’s brother because is very normal that they think its brother or sister maybe will dead and is job of parents teach about this situation. I think the social environment is very important too, and in that case is job of teachers to educate about this topic in the class.
Finally, I think very important the psychology in these situations, because it helps to keep mental health many times.
