The Committee on Parental Concerns and the National Federation of the Blind announced recently that they are sponsoring a blind parent mailing list that creates a forum for blind parents to share their experiences. Topics may include but are not limited to solving logistical problems (such as how to manage a couple of wiggly toddlers at a shopping mall when you need one hand for your cane and the other to carry packages) and emotional issues (such as dealing with the public, handling a child's embarrassment about blindness, etc.). Parents are also encouraged to share resources such as arranging the exchange of print/braille books. There will also be occasional posts concerning topics of interest to blind persons and/or members of the National Federation of the Blind.
To subscribe to the list, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body of the message put: subscribe blparent (speech synthesizer users note that listserv has 8 letters, no "e" on the end, and "blparent" is b-l-p-a-r-e-n-t).
You can also reach the NFB NET BBS via the World Wide Web at http://www.nfbnet.org/, via FTP at ftp://ftp.nfbnet.org/, or by pointing your Telnet client to nfbnet.org or 184.108.40.206. You can also call using a conventional modem by dialing (612) 869-4599.
