Mother’s Day: Mom Panel + A dad’s view on making it meaningful + Motherless Moms
Mother’s Day is here again! I’ve planned a busy show to celebrate! Joining me in the studio will be a panel of moms to chat about Motherhood, what Mother’s Day means (or doesn’t mean) to them and how they celebrate. We’ll also chat about the reality of Motherless moms and how some mark this special day. Plus, we’ll be joined by a dad to get his view on how kids, young and old, could be making Mother’s Day a little more meaningful.
Listen in for your chance to win an Afternoon Tea for Two at the Fairmont Empress, fitness classes with Hot Mama Health & Fitness and more!

“All too often,” Patkin says, “it’s our closest relationships—the ones into which we should be putting the most sincere and consistent work—that we allow to run on autopilot. Mother’s Day is the perfect time to reassess the place your own mother holds in your life, and hopefully, to consciously strengthen your bond.”
