Women Who Run with the Wolves -Episode 3

In this episode, this group of women talk about their feelings and frustrations around raising children in our modern society. They point specifically to instances where they felt judged and pressure to conform to societal norms when it came to parenting.  In this day and age - where judgement and outside opinions on parenting are rife - the moms in the group vent their frustration with this status quo. The women share their thoughts on how we should be supporting each other instead of judging each other in order to pass that “way of thinking” along to the next generation. They each point out a specific short story from the book that held personal meaning for them and this just highlights the fact that this book potentially has a message that can speak to anyone.  Discussion Points: Instincts vs Society’s expectations Raising Children while being judged by society Instincts around raising children Children’s instincts Parent’s being judged  Making decisions that will allow your child to be themselves Women supporting other women raising their children Should judgement affect how you raise your children?

Talking to Strangers Episode 2

The Book Interrupted women continue their conversation on “Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don't Know” by Malcolm Gladwell, exploring topics of biases, first impressions, empty sorrys, shoulds versus coulds, rules, sisters, mothers, sense of self and Legends of the Fall. Discussion Points: Have you met a stranger and had a bias, but when talking to them you found out they were the opposite?  Actions versus words - an empty sorry means nothing/following through on your words First impressions Shoulds versus coulds - do you live your life because you “should” do things? Rules - do you like to follow them? Can you be friends with your sister’s friends? Are you the hardest on yourself? How did becoming a mother change your sense of self? Target marketing and are our phones listening all the time?
