Re: [IPp] Another Plug for Dads....

Here's a suggestion that came about from a Parents "Survivor" Support 
group...one mom was bemoaning the same points raised in this thread- i.e. dad 
being "clueless" about the 8 yr old's pump needs, etc & mom never feeling she 
could be more than a few feet from home wihtout someone beeping her!....the 
group suggestion was to have the daughter do an insertion on DAD, so that the 
daughter could "play teacher", and so that dad could better understand what's 
involved, etc etc....they followed the advice & mom reported later that she's 
now able to be gone for hours without everyone panicking!!
