When the powers that be at Ouch BBC shut the Ouch parents section, a lot of posters who had much to contribute left the board. Can we bring the board back here please

:-) Yes to a parents thread and as BBC Ouch used to have a Parents Section I am happy to put one up, but I would like some idea of whether people would post there or not.

What do other people have to say?

It's not something I would use all the time, as the kids are grown up.  However, I have used the Parents bit of BBC Ouch to ask questions regarding the grandchildren.
I think it's a good idea to have a parents thread, as we have quite a few old Ouchers who have children, grandchildren, nephews and nieces.

No children here, so I'm not really affected, but one thing does come to mind:

When the powers that be at Ouch BBC shut the Ouch parents section, a lot of posters who had much to contribute left the board.

That could mean it takes a long time for a parents' section to get up to speed here - if the parents have already dispersed, some of them may never hear about OuchToo. You might have to leave the new section up for several months before you get a conclusive result either way.

 I don't have kids personally, but I think it's a good idea to have a parents area

I dont have children for who Im responsible  but I cant see why there shouldnt be a section for those who want it.. maybe have it up as a "trial " for a few months, see how much its used and reassess after that ?

It was a place for everyone, whether they had children or not.

A lot of parents used it when their children were diagnosised to ask for advice from those who had gone through such things as children.

I think also it allowed me to heal a bit. I can't change what happened in my own past, but perhaps I have an  idea of how your child feels and what really won't help in said situation - no matter how many non disabled/ non personally affected Experts are convinced otherwise

As I was creating the new subcatergory I might have got a bit carrying away because I ended up typing Ouch Parents, Carers and Friends.
How does it look?
I can easily change the name to Ouch Parents if people wish :-)

 I don't know that it was ever clear whether it was for parents of disabled children or disabled parents of non-disabled children or both... perhaps a little intro thread saying what it's geared towards would be helpful? I haven't anything to offer on the subject of parenting disabled children but I do often seek help with issues related to being a disabled parent.

 I always thought it was both. I know with RNIB parents board, it's for parents of children with sight problem and /or those who have children and have sight problems themselves.

I just put this description up,

'For people caring for others and also the friends of people who are disabled.

Does it work as a description?

 The parents section in the old Ouch was both for disabled parents and parents of disabled children. There really wasn't a lot of activity on it prior to it being removed. As a parent of a young person with disabilities I would have visited it and asked questions and it was useful but not wonderful. It was very different from the other message boards as I suppose parents with children with disabilities were just 'starting out' so to speak and the board did not have very much by the way of political/campaigning discussion on it. 

Yes, I think it's a good idea to get it running again, it has helped me and from there I was an avid reader of the other boards and learnt a lot and I suppose I became more politically aware of things.

 Hi Tammy

yes it certainly can be difficult sometimes.   I became disabled after my son grew up, which is just as well.  But my son was a late diagnosed dyslexic (it was not confirmed until I took him for a private assessment when he was 14) and it was very difficult for him.   But such late diagnosis is not unusual: over one third of the dyslexic students in the University where I work were not diagnosed til after they came to University.

regards, Deb

I think is you are bright and well behaved, you often don't come onto the school radar. It is like a student can get told off year in and year out for messy work but because they are getting a average grade the teachers don't notice that the student is being held back by something like dyslexia.

oh yes, the teachers were all keen to tell me my son was getting "average" grades - I was even told I was a pushy mother and I should just learn to accept that he's not as bright as I would like to think... when the private ed psych tested him his IQ scores were in the top 2% according to the national figures... so "average" grades were a bit below par, really.

the other thing I have seen quite a lot is people who are deaf (with moderate to severe impairments) told they are dyslexic - but actually all of their symptoms can be explained by their hearing impairment....

regards, Deb
