Each episode of Mom Enough holds your attention from beginning to end of frank discussions that are simply fascinating. The expert guests are clearly carefully chosen for more than their research-based advice. They bring a fresh perspective to topics like exercise and pregnancy, rebuilding intimacy between parents, and concepts of beauty and body image.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that a recent episode even focused on consent in relation to sexual assault and harassment and the need to discuss this topic with your child before they reach adolescence.
Dr. Marti Erickson, developmental psychologist, and her daughter Dr. Erin Erickson, nurse practitioner and maternal-child health specialist, are the co-hosts. They explore the daily joys and struggles of modern motherhood, from balancing work and family to considering how society views mothers. Marti and Erin are not afraid to toss in a few personal confessions and openly share conversations they’ve had with their kids, either.
As indicated by its title, this show addresses the worry moms sometimes have about whether their parenting approach is the right one and the way they may blame themselves if they feel their children are falling short. If you’ve considered what it means to be “mom enough,” or wondered if it is possible to be “mom too much,” this is the show for you.
