In brief: Not related

Although dm is hereditary, the feedings of kids are not related to diabetic parents.
Symptoms include frequent feedings and always thirsty thats the reason we check kids for diabetes.

In brief: If True...

I am not sure that statement is true.
But type 2 diabetics tend to have issues with obesity and overeating. This behavior sets a poor example for their kids, who may eat too much.
