Dads with CP

I have a six year old and she is my world. I have become more frustrated lately that i cannot do everything that an able bodied father can do i.e. teach her to ride her bike. Don't get me wrong I go out in my wheelchair with her on her bike but its not the same. Do any other dads feel this way?

    Hi, I have CP and have two kids now and as the years progress and my condition changes there are things that I can no longer do that I might have done previously which I know can be very frustrating, but kids adapt and no doubt she loves you for who you are and appreciates the things that you can do with her. I don't know your level of CP, but is swimming something that would be possible as Ive found this to be brilliant and in water you would never know I had CP. Parks, museums are also good and plenty have disabled access.

    Swimming is most definitely an activity that would be great and will allow you to enjoy your time with your kids; watching from the sidelines as your children partake in other activities is not quite the same.
