Therapeutic Parenting Podcast Episode 8

Therapeutic Parenting: The Kind of Dad I Need To Be

Our first male guest of this series joins us on this podcast edition to talk about a father’s experience of therapeutic parenting.

Kinship Carer, Iain Fogg and his wife have cared for the daughter he refers to on the podcast as “kiddo” (not her real name), for the last two years.

We learn about the so-called honeymoon period and its aftermath, secondary trauma and compassion fatigue. Iain also discusses the grief he underwent for the loss of the idealized vision he imagined life as a foster father would be like.

He presents a stark but ultimately hope-filled story not of the the kind of dad he wanted to be but of the kind of dad he needed to be.
