Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2001, vol.9, n.6, pp. 25-30. ISSN 0104-1169.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-11692001000600005.

This descriptive study aimed at analyzing the difficulties faced by mothers of type-1 diabetic teenagers and children in view of the child's daily activities and based on the principle that emotional, social, personal and economic factors concerning the family interfere with achieving good metabolic control. Data were obtained by means of a semi-structured interview guide applied to 30 mothers. Data analysis followed the standards preconized for descriptive studies in which directed interviews are used. Results showed that: mothers have difficulties in dealing with children's daily activities such as social gatherings, in motivating them to develop physical activities, diet, school adjustment, relationship with the health team as well as with the children's behaviors regarding their brothers/sisters. Results indicated the need for planned and integrated work by a multiprofissional team with the families, considering all the aspects addressed in this study and their interdependence, aiming at a successful care to diabetic children and adolescents.
