In these times of increased restrictions, dark Scottish nights and winter chills we’re hoping to encourage folks to check-in with their buddies and ask how they’re doing. And what better way to celebrate International Tea Day on Tuesday 15th December than by having a #BrewWithYourBuddy?
We are offering online training, a dads' WhatsApp group, a free SMS support service for new parents, a Facebook group and DADx series of talks for dads' and families' workers, along with our directory and sign posting services. We have also developed a new resource for perinatal health professionals to support new dads through lockdown.
Raymond Carver – the American short story writer and poet published a book in 1985 called “Fires”. It is a great collection of essays and poems. Included in the book is a wonderful and moving essay called, “My Father’s Life” and a poem entitled, “Photograph Of My Father In His Twenty Second Year.” He says, “The poem was a way of trying to connect with him” long after he had died.
