My son has been begging me to let him spend the night with his best friend, but I'm very nervous (probably too overprotective actually) about it.  How do you make sure that your child is being probably looked after?  Do you give the parents a tip sheet, explain meds to them, etc.?  I don't want to be pushy or overgbearing, but want to make sure that there aren't any issues. Do you have any advice for me?

I bet it's very scary to let your child go off on his "own" for the most part, especially when they have diabetes. I found a article that I think you'll find very helpful, good luck!
