There are many misunderstandings about postpartum mood and anxiety disorders. Host Lindsay Aerts experienced postpartum anxiety and OCD and recalls the common, yet often misunderstood, symptom of scary or intrusive thoughts. She talks about a conversation she had with an elderly man who clearly just didn't understand that the thoughts were a symptom of an illness, not necessarily how she felt about her child.

Nov 4, 2018

It's often described as ambivalence in motherhood, having strong conflicting feelings at the same time. And it's totally okay. Sometimes these look like thoughts of I love my child desperately and I am resentful of how much work it is to take care of her. I am grateful for a healthy pregnancy and I'm hating how much pain I'm in. This shows up so often for moms and can cause a lot of pain because we don't always allow ourselves to have negative feelings around motherhood relationships. Host Lindsay Aerts shares her conflicting feelings and talks with Dr. Jule Hanks of Wasatch Family Therapy and talks about what ambivalence is, why in our culture we don't always allow for it, and how to resolve some the guilt it may be causing.  The Mom Show on KSL is hosted by Lindsay Aerts.

No one really wants to see their child in pain, physical or emotional. Host Lindsay Aerts talks about how she believes our children need to experience emotional pain though in order to become the people they're meant to be.  Most people know this in theory but letting them experience the hard stuff is easier said than done. She's joined by author and public speaker, Ganel-Lyn Condie and discuss empathy versus sympathy in helping our children through difficult experiences. The Mom Show on KSL is hosted by Lindsay Aerts.

Being a mom comes with many high, highs and some often really low, lows. Even in the course of a day you can go from loving every second of parenthood to questioning why you decided having kids was a good idea.

We as moms hear a lot about not being the perfect mom, but what does it actually look like to be a good enough mother? Host Lindsay Aerts talks with Jody Moore, a life coach who teaches that everyone gets to decide for themselves what it means to be a good mom. Doing so allows you to throw out beliefs that culture, society, and tradition say you "should do" and focus on what you want to be your standards for parenting. Jody walks through how to know if you're a successful parent. The Mom Show on KSL is hosted by Lindsay Aerts. KSL News Radio is part of Bonneville Media and based in Salt Lake City, Utah.

We often say to our kids, "did that boy or girl hurt your feelings?" It sounds like nice thought in an effort to validate how our kids are feeling and help them be nice people. Host Lindsay Aerts explains why technically you can't hurt anyone feelings because their feelings are being created by their own thinking, as are yours. Now that doesn't mean we teach our kids to go out an be mean, but Lindsay talks with Jody Moore, a life coach who teaches a model for breaking down thoughts versus emotions, and why that's so important in teaching our kids how to cope with circumstances in life.

Teaching kids to feel their emotions is something Host Lindsay Aerts thinks is essential to helping children cope with life. She calls it her best parenting hack because it seems to help her manage her daughter's toddler meltdowns.

I love my child desperately and I am resentful of how much work it is to take care of her. I am grateful for a healthy pregnancy and I'm hating how much pain I'm in.

This shows up so often for moms and can cause a lot of pain because we don't always allow ourselves to have negative feelings around motherhood relationships.

More than half of the families in Utah with very young children have all available parents in the workforce. That’s an indicator of the need for quality, affordable childcare. In addition, parents who are seeking to further their education need good childcare, too. That’s the topic of a snapshot released by the Utah Women and Leadership Project at Utah Valley University this week. Host Lindsay Aerts talks with the project's founder Dr. Susan Madsen to find out why childcare in Utah is costing so much. The Mom Show on KSL is hosted by Lindsay Aerts.

Back to school time can be a big relief to some moms. It means schedules are back to normal, kids are spending their days learning and growing, they have a warm meal every day, and moms get some relief from childcare demands and the summer overwhelm of having kids in the house 24-7. Other moms feel like back to school adds more stress, it means homework, extracurriculars, over scheduled kids, and a general feeling of being more busy. Whichever way you're feeling about back to school time host Lindsay Aerts and author and public speaker, Ganel-Lyn Condie discuss why moms need to not criticize each other for how their feeling. Being excited your kids are back to school doesn't make you a bad mom, and dreading it doesn't mean you're ill equipped to handle it all.

Girls younger and younger are now dealing with body image issues. It's so sad to host Lindsay Aerts and her guest Ganel-Lyn Condie that what our young girls are seeing today is causing them to feel shame around their bodies. There are many factors at play, women seen on tv and movies, magazines, and social media all still seem to portray a message that skinny is good and no other body type is worthy. Lindsay and Ganel-Lyn discuss the problem our young girls are facing and what they see as some of the fixes. Host Lindsay Aerts believes this starts with us as moms to check our own beliefs about our bodies so as to not pass these messages on to our daughters.

The birth of a mother. That is the definition of the word matrescence. It's the transition into motherhood described in the New York Times article, “Birth of a Mother”. Like adolescence, it is a transitionary period. Being pregnant is like going through puberty all over again: your hormones go nuts, your hair and skin don’t behave the way you’d like, and you develop a new relationship with a body that seems to have a mind of its own. Host Lindsay Aerts talks with the Director of the Healing Group, Monica Ashton about what this word means and how we can apply it as moms to give ourselves more grace, support, and understanding during this transition period.
