Exploring and gaining independence away from parental control is a natural way to build self-confidence for any child.

Parents of children living with diabetes often have difficulty trusting their child to be safe in independently exploring and participating in activities whilst not in their presence. On the other hand, they do not want to socially isolate their child or prevent them from developing self-confidence by invasive or constant monitoring.

NovoSteps is an online service offering to parents of children living with diabetes a graphical overview of people in their child’s life and the ability to share important pieces of information about their child’s condition.

NovoSteps is about enabling parents and children to take positive steps in their relationship with each other – by moving away from constraint and control and towards confidence and trust.

Using NovoSteps children with diabetes are allowed more freedom to build self-confidence through independent experiences.
