Disabled Parents

Hi all, I know there's quite a few threads like this but I thought it best to start my own. I am currently a final year student at Loughborough University Design school, and have decided to spend my final year trying to help disabled parents (specifically wheelchair users). Because of this I have a questions (that I've listed below) and it would be great to see the range of answers, and use them to shape my project. The Question is:

1) what is the hardest thing for a disabled parent to do with their child?
- I've seen numerous threads about a wheelchair stroller being a very useful product, but is there another task (i.e. feeding, bathing etc) that could be made easier? the more information the better, all help is greatly appreciated!

thanks
