Modern Motherhood

Host Frank Stasio speaks with Amy Tiemann, author of the book “Mojo Mom: Nurturing Your Self While Raising a Family” and a frequent speaker about motherhood. She talks to Frank about young women’s expectations of motherhood and how society supports and reflects those expectations. Then, Frank is joined by a panel of North Carolina mothers whose children range in age from one to 33. Guests include: Jaki Shelton Green, a poet, writer and retired social worker and activist; Maria Mangano, director of Career Services at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law and the mother of two teenagers; Louise Jarvis Flynn, a freelance writer and mother of a one-year old who lives in Durham; and Tiffany Edwards a stay-at-home mom of four children ages 11, 9, 5, and 4 who lives with her family in Apex. How much of motherhood is sacrifice? Compromise? Joy? Patience? Frustration? Insight? Love? Listener Call-In. (59:00)
