Katie Show August 28 2013
Katie Couric is calling all moms on August 28. When the going gets tough, how do you keep juggling all your responsibilities? It can be challenging to feel like you have enough hours in the day to fit everything in, never mind getting some “me time.” But it sounds like more and more women are turning to Mommy’s Little Helpers to take the edge off. These aids range from wine to prescription medication and more. What do you think about this?
Katie Couric: Mommy’s Little Helpers
One mom, Marile Borden, started a Facebook page for Moms Who Need Wine. But another LA mom said she had a huge wake-up call that made her give up drinking forever. These ladies are going to share their stories on August 28.
Katie Show: Adderall Prescriptions for Moms
Then there is the issue of prescription medication. Some women admit to popping pills as the way to stay on task. Adderall is apparently one of those Mommy’s Little Helpers. According to at least one online survey, 25% of moms are taking drugs to ease the pressures they feel in life.
What’s more, Adderall prescriptions are on the rise, with an increase of over 700% for women ages 26-39. That is a huge jump, and some women are finding out the hard way that this habit can be a gateway to other stimulants.
What do you think about moms reaching for pill bottles to keep it all together?
Katie Couric: Moms Internet Addiction
Are you addicted to the Internet? Some moms are turning online to get a break from their daily grind. Social networking sites such as Pinterest make for great ways to connect and share interests, but how much time spent on social media is too much?
Plus, what kind of effect do all these addictions have on the children of mothers who indulge in them? Katie Couric has expert advice and recommended solutions on the August 28 show.
