Mom rage. What is it? Why do we feel it? And what can we do to prevent it?
No doubt if you’re a mom you have at some point experienced the inexplicable rage that we have come to know as “mom rage.” In fact, it’s so common that it even made the New York Times in 2020 during the height of the pandemic (though don’t worry if you were too busy trying to juggle everything during a global pandemic to read it).
Christina Furnival is a mental health therapist, writer, public speaker, and children’s book author. She is also a wife and mom of two, and she joins me today to discuss all things mom rage. We’re talking about what it is, why we feel it, and how to deal with it.
We’re also discussing some of the many reasons why mom rage has become so common and why our mothers and grandmothers did not share the same struggle (hint: social media and mom guilt, anyone?) If you struggle with mom rage, or have ever struggled with mom rage, this is an episode you definitely won’t want to miss!
