I heard that at a recent information event organised by the EPCF only 3 parents appeared. It is so difficult to balance our lives as carers and tie in with our working lives and other commitments. Sometimes it's simply a question of finding the energy to attend.
We're constantly bombarded with requests for feedback, to fill in questionnaires, we're continually subjected to hurdles everystep of the way throughout our children's lives. Even without our parental hats on, as organisers we're faced with seemingly endless demands for monitoring and requests for documenting events. Language and correspondence can become heated and yet what we often need more than anything else is the ability to be able to find a haven where we can exchange ideas and find out about other people's paths in this curious world we occupy, without fear of retribution.
What do you think? What sort of events work for you?
