TackleNappy Dad of the Year - Lee Jamieson

Wednesday, 05 December 2012 00:00 Published in A Beer With...

Gusty winds dampen to but a breath, pouring rain fades to nothing but a light mist, the clouds whisk away like a flock of seagulls infiltrated by a hungry fox, butterfly's flutter carefree and birds sing songs more beautiful than any song heard before. A single ray of light, heavenly from above, lights up the virtual hands of Bucky as if a million suns shone together as one. Lee reaches out and receives something more valuable than gold to a poor man, more important than water to a man who has lost his way in the desert, something more beautiful than the site of land to a sailor lost at sea. Lee receives the interview questions. He looks at Bucky and pauses. After considering his words for some time, remarks "About fuckin' time".

I'm here with Lee, father to half dozen, father figure to many, but the only man in the world to ever be crowned TackleNappy's Dad of the Year.

Resilience in Kids

"It's not Fair!!" & "Why does he get that?".

Any parent knows these complaints, and they seem to usually be when one sibling has got something the other hasn't.

How do you teach your kids that life isn't fair? That the world does not revolve around them and that they can not have everything they want?

Ralph speaks about Autism

I'm here sharing a coke with friend and father of two Ralph, talking family, Autism, cattle and Billy Pinnell.

On family...

Big Guy, tell us about your family.

How do you explain Aspergers and High Functioning Autism to someone who is not familiar with the conditions?

Best put simply, Autism is a spectrum of neurological disorders involving communication, social functioning and sensory issues, and Aspergers is at the Higher functioning end of that spectrum or "It's like that Sheldon guy from Big Bang Theory"
