How do I make my daughter diabetic realize ?

that she has to take her insulin and check her sugar ? She was 7 when she was diagnosed. We have tried everything we could think of, including scare tactics... Her doctors say its a faze.. But I freak when her sugar is up. I guess I should have mentioned: she is on a pump, NORMALLY has very good bs readings, and there is a nurse on staff at school that oversees her school monitoring

She should realise by now. bad luck i think she has type 1 type of DM. She should take insulin regular and timely other wise she might land up in complications soon. I guess you guys should meet a Child psychologist who can help her realize it better than you parents.
