Dad Chats Live – 27 November 2020, the best support and resources for dads.
This week we were joined by the brilliant Kieran Anders from @dadmattersuk. Dad Matters is a brilliant community organisation who aim to help dads have the best relationships possible with their families. They also support dads with anxiety, stress and mental health issues. One thing that Dad Matters is great at, is signposting dads to the right support at the right time. So we were really happy to have Kieran join us and share information about the different resources available for dads.
Next up, we delved into the benefits of good support, for ourselves, and our families. We all know it can be hard asking for support, and when we do and end up somewhere that gives less than desirable help – that can just make things worse. So we wanted to hear about your experiences of getting good support, and what difference that made to you.
Lastly for our lighthearted topic we chatted about he times our kids have surprised and supported us. No matter how big or small, it is always great when our kids let us know they’re on our side. We loved hearing these stories!
