Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases amongst children. The incidence of type 1 diabetes is increasing world-wide and it is predicted that annually about 65,000 children under 15 years of age worldwide develop type 1 diabetes. Despite the identified need for parenting programs for this population, there is a paucity of parenting interventions for parents of young children with diabetes.
The aim of this project is to understand the factors that make the management of childhood diabetes particularly difficult, and to use this information to develop strategies and tailor the Healthy Living Triple P seminar series to increase the parenting competence of parents of young children with type 1 diabetes. Healthy Living Triple P is a brief, two hours, two sessions group program designed to assist parents in managing their child’s illness and difficult child behaviour.
If you are a parent of a 2 to 10-year-old child with type 1 diabetes, we would love to hear from you!

The Healthy Living Triple P seminars will be offered free of charge to parents of 2-10 year old children with type 1 diabetes in exchange for research participation, starting in late 2013.
