Dad Chats Live – 18 September 2020: talking about approaching grief with children, crying in front of your kids and your dream man cave?!
Grief is something that will impact all of our lives, and no matter how much we want to protect our children from that, it will impact them to. So this week we chatted about approaching grief with children. We talked about the impact of grief on our kids, how we talk to them about it and we got some great advice about this subject. From how we talk to our kids about grief, to helping them navigate the difficult emotions it brings up. A must watch.
Next up, we talked about crying in front of our kids. Years ago, men would avoid crying in public as it was believed to be a sign of weakness. That opinion has changed dramatically over the last 20-30 years, but would you cry in front of your children? This is something that some dads still wouldn’t feel comfortable doing. So, we asked if you have cried in front of your children, how they reacted, and why we think it is an important thing to do.
Last up, for our light-hearted topic, we asked what our community would have in their dream man cave – and we got some great ideas!
Topics we covered:
1. Dealing with Grief. No matter whether it’s a pet, a friend, or a grandparent it is tough for everyone involved. Let’s open the topic right up. Tell us all your thoughts and feelings.
2. Crying in front of your kids.
3. Our light hearted topic this week is… What would you have in your dream man cave?
