To replace my View watching, I’ve started watching a show that’s on TLC. It’s called “Surviving Motherhood.”
I really like it (but it’s on at like 10 am so I do have to Tivo it). So, they get all these moms together with children of varying ages. Each day they spotlight a specific mom and talk about her “main” problem and they get advice from experts and then the moms sit around and talk about it for a while, and then usually they have a 2nd topic that the group discusses.
So, today the main topic was night terrors (which usually start between 2.5-3.5). Good information was given. The pediatrician said the same thing as the woman’s pediatrician and that you need to let your child get through it and you shouldn’t go in there and try and comfort them (with a true night terror they don’t even know you’re there anyway). So funny when one mom said that was BS that a true professional would have better advice then that. She wanted them to refer her to a sleep specialist. Anyway, it’s just really interesting to see how different people respond on the show.
I was thinking of doing some blogs on their topics. They’re pretty interesting and there are as many ways to parents are there are children…
Good munching on my whole wheat crackers TV time.
