My Dwarf Family

Remarkable parenting – through the eyes of Britain’s smallest families

You think parenting is hard? Well imagine if your children were taller than you. People with Dwarfism face unique challenges raising children who are bigger than they are, from the difficulties of breast feeding to disciplining toddlers, to being crushed by a boisterous cuddle! The one issue they all face is overcoming the assumption that they can’t cope with being parents because of their diminutive stature. Can they tackle prejudice and social pressures as well as tear away teens? This heart-warming documentary explores the innovative ways in which they contend with unusual problems, face parenting responsibilities head on and prove to the world they’re perfectly capable mini mums and dads.
