NEW SEASON OUT TODAY! 🎉 From @romper : “On the Season 2 premiere, Dr. Alexandra Sacks dives into one of the great taboos parents can experience: wondering 'What if I don't like my child?' Sacks sits down with a mom who grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Kenya and is now raising her daughter in D.C., in more privileged circumstances.⠀ •⠀ "The mother tells Sacks she's worried her daughter will grow up without knowing 'her roots,' explaining that she worries, 'Will she be generous, will she be kind, will she understand that there is life outside her little bubble?' But Sacks actually hears a deeper concern, 'Will you like her?'⠀ •⠀ "'This sounds like such a taboo question but it's absolutely normal', Sacks tells @Romper. 'The push and pull of motherhood creates ambivalence; it's an impossible task to take care of a child and take care of yourself as well. It's perfectly natural to not always like the role of motherhood, even as you love your child.'⠀ •⠀ "Sacks comforts the distressed mom, saying: 'That's what I think you're nervous about. To think about how to parent a kid who is going to have a lot of things you didn't have as a child so she can grow up as someone you do like—as your kid with the values that you're proud of.'⠀ •⠀ "Sacks explains these are the types of questions she wants moms to be able to ask without fear of judgment through 'therapeutic conversations' rather than actual therapy sessions. 'It's about two things; trying to help and trying to destigmatize needing help.'⠀ •⠀ "'We want to create a community for moms to let them know they are not alone. There is no such thing as a perfect mom… women need to become comfortable being a good enough mom. They need to give themselves permission to love their children alongside their flaws.'"⠀ •⠀ Go to the link in bio to listen to the first episode of Season Two, and consider following #MotherhoodSessions (for free!) @Spotify.⠀ •⠀ #matrescence #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodunfiltered #mom #moms #mother #mothers #momma #mommas #matrescencia #matreschka #matrescense #mommy #motherhood #realmotherhood #lifeasamama #mommystatus #motherhoodjourney #mommymode #motherhoodrising #thatmomlife #mymotherhood
