Six Things My Children Need

In this episode of the DTALKS Podcast, the dads talk with special guest host Jonathan Crow about his experience raising a son with autism. It was an eye opening experience.

Some of the content might be seem a bit on the WTF side and may make some listeners uncomfortable, but keep in mind that parents of kids with autism face these challenges every day. It's not a part of their reality and is not a WTF moment for them. 

Two hours is simply not enough time to cover everything we wanted to, but we are really excited to share this glimpse into a world that a lot of people don't always understand. 

Here are some suggestions regarding Autism from Jonathan 

  • http://www.tacanow.org/ (he said .com, but it's .org)
  • Developmental Pediatrician that specializes in Autism
  • Your state's Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) program
  • Estate planning lawyer to discuss a Special Needs Trust

This episode also features our staple segments of "Ask the Dads", "Dad Jokes" and "Things You Should Check Out".

In this special interview mini-sode of The DTALKS Podcast, Joe interviews Lamar Austin, a New Hampshire father that was fired for attending the birth of his son. Lamar speaks about his reasoning, the opportunities this situation has presented him with, and there's a preview of an upcoming new segment called "Dad Stories". 

This kind of content will normally be found during full episode releases of The DTALKS Podcast or to Patreon supporters, but when we were presented with the opportunity to interview Lamar so shortly after our episode on paternity leave, we felt that it was something that we needed to share. 

Whichever side of the paternity leave issue you might fall on, I think we can all agree that idea of missing the birth of our children should not be a choice any parent should have to face. 

We cannot thank Lamar enough for taking the time out of his day to share his story and thoughts with us. A new kid is a challenge for any family to handle, whether they are new to the game or starting the adventure again for the third or fourth time. 

We hosts here at The DTALKS Podcast hope you enjoy this interview.
