Mommy as a Role Model? Get Real
All Things Considered, October 19, 2005 · Commentator Gwen Macsai is the mother of three children. And she's finding that their standards for motherhood are higher than hers. And while she doesn't want to be a hypocrite, mothers like junk food, unmade beds and swearing too.
Ansen, who listens to KUHF in Houston:
"I had to stop and pull over when I could not control my laughter on listening to [Macsai's] experiences struggling to find some place or time to just be herself. As a mother of a very active and observant 3-year-old boy myself, I felt that I could totally relate to her experience, especially when one reads all the 'advice' by well-meaning family experts."
