ABC National News: Looking for Mothers to Interview

Do any mothers worry about the impact a stressful situation has on her baby?

Stressed mom holding baby

ABC National News is doing a story on babies and how they feel and notice a lot more than we think they do. The story is meant to educate parents on the emotional attachment and development of infants and toddlers.

ABC is looking for mothers who have gone through a life-changing event (divorce, death in the family, long illness, major move, etc) and who are worried their infant or toddler was emotionally affected.
 
The search deadline is Monday April 11th. ABC is happy to accommodate a busy mom's schedule!
 
If you or anyone you know is willing to share their experiences on camera, please e-mail Claudia.Morales@abc.com or morales.claudiam@gmail.com.


Keeping Stress to Yourself

Whether you're watching the local news, reading yet one more article about the slow-moving economy, or anxiously checking and re-checking the status of your 401-K, it's impossible to deny that we've been living in an increasingly stressful time. Although economists continue to report that the "Great Recession" has been over for the better part of last year, many families still have yet to feel the full effects of recovery. And the economy is just one of a million things to feel stressed about: You could be wondering who will pick the kids up from school then get them to soccer or ballet practice; what to make for dinner (and is there cheese in the fridge?); how to find time to help them with their homework and prepare for your own work day the following morning...our to-do lists can be endless, and as soon as we check something off, it's back on the list for tomorrow! What if you and your spouse have been experiencing marital difficulties? What if your kids have been going through a hard time at school? Whatever the issue, sometimes it's easy to feel like there's no light at the end of the stress-tunnel.
