Subjects: 8 August 2020 Talking about:- Being a blind parent.
Another Friday, another brilliant Dad Chats! This week we talked about being a disabled parent. Whether it is a physical, or mental disability, it is something that may make the parenting journey more difficult. So we asked to hear all about it. We are joined by some brilliant Dadvengers who were really open about their experiences of being a disabled parent – definitely one to watch.
Next we chatted parenting plans. A lot of parents think they will manage the different stages of child development in set ways. They have a plan, and they want to stick to it! We asked, what those plans are, and whether or not they have been working out so far.
For our light-hearted topic, we asked what your favourite dad songs are. Our crew brought the TUNES on this topic! One not to miss!
Here are the questions we asked:-
1. Added difficulties of parenting when you have a disability or condition. Maybe you are autistic, maybe you have OCD, maybe you have a physical disability. However mild or strong we want to hear about them and the methods you use to support and cope with them.
2. Parenting Plans. Many of us like to think we will parent in a certain way through each stage of our children’s developement. Do you have a plan? Did you have one? Is it going to plan? Are you ready for the teenage years? You get the idea
3. What are your favourite dad songs. This will be very interesting.
