The Blind Side Podcast 29, parenting when you’re blind

How much of a difference does blindness make to being a parent? What techniques are necessary to supervise a child if you can’t see? And for those who become blind when they’re already a parent, how does blindness change things?
We’ll discuss these and many other related issues with our panel of blind parents, each of whom brings a different set of experiences on the discussion. Jonathan Mosen, a father of four himself, is joined by Maggie Rush, James Manders, and Ericka Mosley.
Ericka is a co-founder of Blind Parent Alliance, a support group of over a thousand blind parents worldwide who keep in touch via Facebook. Perform a Facebook search for Blind Parent Alliance if you’d like to connect.
We also learn about an email list which has been run for many years which serves as another supportive place for blind parents.
