Series: Community Living 34 (4) Summer 2021: 26.Publisher: 2021Subject(s): Duffy, Simon | INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY | CHILDREN | PARENT ADVOCACY | PARENTAL ATTITUDES | UNITED KINGDOMSummary: When Stephen Unwin tweeted a photo of himself and his son, he was stunned by the life-affirming responses and pithy messages of mock gloom - and found himself on Radio 4. Stephen observes that "It was clear that Joey and I had struck a chord. Because families of learning-disabled children are so often made to feel their situation is deeply tragic, my tweet, I believe, encouraged them to show that they don't just love their child to the moon and back - their child has taught them more about life, love and laughter than outsiders might expect. And they wanted to express that publicly."
