Although this is about a Type 1 Mom, I thought it was quite a good short article

you are right to train your children what to do in case of an emergency. my husband was a juvenile onset diabetic and all my children knew what to do for him in case i was not home.
I was gestational diabetic when I had my son but I found out I was type ll when my son was 5 years old. My husband as well as my children had to learn what to do when I had low blood sugar. I had an "attack" when I was pregnant and my husband flipped out because we were in the grocery store and I just laid down in the floor! Then the employees had to run and get me something with sugar in it.
I've had plenty of episodes after that time and once I had the flu (hadn't had the flu shot) my sugar got down so low my daughter had to call 911 and they had to give me glucose. ( I learned to always get my flu shot too!)
