Episode 6: Wise Moms of Pittsburgh
For this special Mother’s Day episode, we are going into mom-overload with listener questions about how to talk to your parent about their mental health, how to help little ones adjust to a culturally-different environment, and how to convince your partner that you two should adopt. Each question will be slathered in 3 doses of advice and we’ll be playing plenty of mother daughter pickleball, but this time, I’m not in San Francisco, many states apart from my mom. For this episode, I’m within hugging distance. And you know who else is? Some of my mom’s wise friends, who are also moms (and don’t worry, also skilled professionals). That’s right: we are IN the mothership. Complete show notes, questions and more available: www.advicefrom.mom/listen/
