Now hold on a second, I’m not saying that dads are missing altogether and I’m not saying that dads do not do a lot. But would you not agree that as one looks across the support groups, the online community, and even in the philanthropic world, the sea of mommies far outweigh the visible involvement of the daddies?
Is what we see the reflection of truth? Is it the fact that daddies are behind the scenes? Is it that daddies do not spend a lot of time on the computer? Is it that daddies’ support is in different ways that are not seen as ‘out in front’ as mommies?
If daddies are: present, there, and involved; and for whatever the reason they just cannot be seen, that’s fine. But if the majority of all the ‘pulling’ in the weighty aspects of the diabetes world is left to the mommies, well that’s a problem; isn’t it? Is it?
Now it may be, that your family has fallen into what works for you when it comes to the various responsibilities surrounding diabetes care. But has it just evolved into what one person does and what the other does; or was it a plan?
I have a question for you—-what is the one thing you would say/ask/state to your spouse if you were absolutely confident that s/he would not know it was from you? If you click this link:
The one thing I would say to my spouse
You can ask that question. I will share the results with you in a few days.
I am a diabetes dad.
