Now I know I’m absolutely skating on thin ice here at the deepest part of the pond, but I found myself asking a question based on recent observations. It seems that with the recent and ever-growing use of technologies to manage day-to-day diabetes; dads/spouses seem to be playing more of an active role than before…..has anyone else found that of late?
Now before I get beat up; let me say that I also know that there are many cases that dads do most of the care and also many who ‘chip-in’ equally. THAT is not to whom I am referring.
But I also know there have been times that we dads…..well……don’t/didn’t do as much as we should.
Now I know there are still many dynamic-hurdles needed to be jumped, but I have noticed a lessening of posts, comments, and meetings of how little the spouses are doing…….and those of us who have been around a few years know that there used to be quite a bit; methinks.
So I had two thoughts. And remember that these are just ‘over-all’ observations and just that–observations. Is it that dads are doing a little more helping with the care or is it that moms have better things to do than ask advice of one not willing to help?…….or is it that my observations are completely off the mark (which surely could be the case as well).
I asked a few people privately and they informed me that, indeed, recent technology has engaged some of the husbands/spouses more…..so I thought I would ask.
I’m asking your opinion more of an observer of the conversations out there rather than just an individual reaction. Anyone have any thoughts on this subject as an overall observation? Inquiring minds want to know………okay……I want to know. 🙂
