ON-LINE SUPPORT GROUP FOR PARENTS & FAMILIES

EMAIL SUPPORT GROUP IS FOR ANYONE WHO HAS EXPERIENCE OF SIGHT LOSS. IF YOU HAVE A CHILD WHO IS VISUALLY IMPAIRED/BLIND, OR ARE YOURSELF A PARENT WHO IS VISUALLY IMPAIRED.

AS A MUM OF A LITTLE BOY WHO HAS BEEN BLIND SINCE BIRTH, I KNOW HOW DEVASTATING & OVERWHELMING IT CAN ALL BE. THAT'S WHY I CREATED THIS ON-LINE COMMUNITY SO WE CAN GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER, MAKE NEW FRIENDS, AND OFFER SUPPORT WHEN NEEDED. WE ALL HAVE SO MUCH TO GIVE AND BY SHARING OUR OWN EXPERIENCES WE HELP GIVE OTHERS ENCOURAGEMENT & INSPIRATION.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN US PLEASE EMAIL ME AT debghope@hotmail.com.

LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU

Re:ON-LINE SUPPORT GROUP FOR PARENTS & FAMILIES



I'm a step father who has no vision. I have 2 toddlers under 5. My wife's hours changed at her job and 1 day out of the week I will have to watch both of them. The issue is the youngest is not potty trained and is 3. She has been working on this with him but he will only go in the morning and right before bed on the potty. I'm not sure on how to change pull ups with out making a mess any suggestions would be helpful.
