    Even Superstar Athletes Need Child Care (with Allyson Felix and Olga Harvey)

    Even Superstar Athletes Need Child Care (with Allyson Felix and Olga Harvey)

    It’s not easy for anyone to return to work after becoming a mother, and child care is often the hardest aspect for families to figure out. Track and field star Allyson Felix experienced that firsthand and is determined to make things easier for her fellow athlete moms. And when Allyson sets a goal for herself — whether it’s becoming the most decorated U.S. track and field athlete in history or changing the child care landscape for athlete moms — she accomplishes it. Allyson and Olga Harvey of the Women’s Sports Foundation tell Gloria about the challenges athlete moms face, what they’re doing to improve things, and how the lessons they’ve learned along the way apply to moms in and out of sports.

    Women Are Barely Holding On (with Fatima Goss Graves)

    Women Are Barely Holding On (with Fatima Goss Graves)

    Gloria digs into a devastating report on how the pandemic has affected women and their families with Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center. The numbers in this NWLC report, “Resilient But Not Recovered,” are sobering. There are 1.1 million fewer women in the labor force today than there were in February 2020. More than 2/3 of the net jobs lost since the pandemic began were women’s jobs. Only 41% of mothers who left the workforce during the pandemic have returned to work, compared to 78% of fathers. Fatima tells Gloria why women are emerging from the pandemic in worse economic shape than men, what role child care plays in that, and what needs to happen to make things better for women — at work and at home.

    Reframing and Alleviating Your “Mom Guilt” (with Dr. Becky)

You feel it when you drop your kids off at child care, when you check your email during their softball game, when you ask your partner to wake up early with the little ones so you can get a little more sleep on Saturday. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Gloria digs deep into mom guilt, timeouts, separation anxiety, and so much more with Dr. Becky, clinical psychologist and host of the Good Inside podcast. Pop in your earbuds and relax on the couch because this episode is like a free therapy session!

    The Hidden Life Skills in Simon Says

    The Hidden Life Skills in Simon Says

    There are so many skills young kids need to learn, but what can parents and caregivers do to teach them? First, Gloria learns about the seven essential life skills every child needs with the researcher who developed them: Ellen Galinsky, Chief Science Officer at the Bezos Family Foundation. Ellen tells Gloria that even though games like Simon Says may not have been conceived as a way to teach young kids executive functioning skills, they're actually an incredible way to do just that. Then, Gloria is joined by Slumberkins co-founders Kelly Oriard and Callie Christensen, who have created ways to teach young children about important life skills like conflict resolution and emotional courage through affirmations and storytelling.

     

    Follow Ellen Galinsky on Twitter @ellengalinsky and learn more about Mind in the Making at https://www.mindinthemaking.org/.

Get a nanny share, stop hoarding childcare spots

If you’re a privileged whyte family who is complaining how hard you have it, you really have no idea what your childcare providers and the most underserved and marginalized families have to go through! Have some humility and get a nanny share! Stop gentrifying and hoarding childcare spots! I don’t want to take care of your children, while you have me starving and housing insecure. Get a grip, look at what Portland has been doing about unaffordable childcare and actually speak to and support others besides yourselves! Oh and childcare center directors, are you really needed? Or just resource hoarding? I just see you sitting around all day.

Now is the time

If there was ever a time in US history to deal with these problems… it is now! As women’s reproductive rights are curtailed, let’s look at the social safety net for mothers (and parents/guardians). We can still make major improvements for moms and kids.
