Listener Questions (Vol.6): The Mom Hour, Episode 94

What do we wish we’d worried about LESS in hindsight? What are we doing differently–and the same–than our parents’ generation did? And just what do we think about sending a seven-year-old to sleepaway camp? We’re taking on three more great listener questions in Episode 94, and offering our advice to moms Avery, Mandee, and Alicia. Join us!

The Mom Hour’s Mother’s Day Challenge!

Will you help us with our Mother’s Day Challenge, where we’re inviting you to send in your handwritten notes of encouragement and solidarity to fellow moms? We’ll collect these cards and letters from now until Mother’s Day and share them via social media as well as read a few on the air.

Your notes can be short and generic–something like “Hey Mama, You’re doing a great job. Your family is so lucky to have you. Love, Sarah from SoCal”–or they can be more specific and as long as you like. Maybe you want to encourage a fellow mom going through something you’ve been through. So you might write a letter “To the mom about to go back to work after maternity leave, I’ve been there. You can do it. (etc.)” or “Dear Mom of a Special Needs Kiddo,” or “Dear Mom who is struggling to find friends…”.

You don’t have to go out and buy a Mother’s Day card (but you can if you want to!)–any hand-written note will do. You can sign with your name or, if you prefer, an anonymous moniker like “Boy Mom in Boston.” Letters should be postmarked no later than May 1 (but we hope to get them and start sharing them even sooner, so don’t wait!) and can be mailed to:
