“Grieving Dad Interview”
I was recently approached by Elisabeth Stitt of Joyful Parenting Coaching who wanted to interview me for an upcoming event that she has developed called “Let’s Hear It For The Dads!: Conversations About Fatherhood”. The program is a series of interviews with 20 different dads on all topics related to being a dad.
I was a little concerned about the title of her business “Joyfull Parenting” because I, and most of you, cringe a little when I read those words. We all know that there isn’t much “joy” in what we’ve all been dealing with after the loss of our child. However, she explained to me that she wanted to get the perspective of a father that has experienced the death of a child so others will have a glimpse into the aftermath and pain of burying a child. Being someone that feels it is my responsibility to continue to bring awareness to what grieving dads (and moms) deal with, I said I would “absolutely” do the interview.
She will be discussing fatherhood issues with me along with 19 other dads. If you are interested in registering for the event, click http://goo.gl/qoBUxv. An interview a day will be emailed out. I am sure most of the topics will be painful to listen to since most interviews are going to be about being a dad in general. I don’t plan on listening to any of the interviews, but it you are interested in hearing my interview and perspective on being a dad, please sign up and just delete all emails until the day my interview is played.
I will also post the interview when it is officially available.
