If you’re a mom chances are you’ve experienced mom guilt. Unless you’re like our guest-host, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, who hasn’t felt guilty as a mom, ever! This week Alisyn Camerota, speaks with longtime ABC News correspondent Gloria Riviera about the pressures of motherhood and why many moms feel like they can never do enough.
The two highly successful working mothers talk about where they think mom guilt comes from and Gloria, a mother of three, talks about being a good role model for your kids, even if that means missing one of their events.
“I want my kids to know that I do other things that make me happy and make me satisfied,” Gloria says in this episode. “And so if I have to miss something because I’m doing something I love, A, doing something I love provides for my family and B, it’s important to who I am as a person now…” she continues.
They also talk about how the pandemic and other recent events have ushered in a new era of news reporting where it’s okay to show more emotion.
Gloria’s latest project, No One Is Coming To Save Us from Lemonada Media, a limited-series podcast she hosts featuring Kristen Bell, is about America’s broken childcare system and how we fix it. Take a listen!
