Mojo Mom Podcast
Bringing you the best in current news, politics, feminism, work and family, as well as expert guest interviews about motherhood and society.
We're reaching the end of summer and co-host Sheryl Grant is already back to school, so Amy's friend Aparna Desai Brown is filling in.  Aparna shares her family's story of recently moving away from Silicon Valley in favor of a saner and more sustainable lifestyle in Pittsburgh.

Then Mojo Mom switches gears to talk about Positive Discipline with Amy McCready, founder of Positive Parenting Solutions in Raleigh, North Carolina.  We have more democratic families these days, but how can parents maintain their leadership role?  Positive Discipline operates on a foundation of respect and responsibility for all family members to help parents bring up capable, competent kids.

Amy and Sheryl debrief their summers and look ahead to a hectic school year that starts very soon.

Then Amy talks to founders Amy and Marc Vachon.  Mojo Mom had some questions about how shared parenting works in practice.  Who better to answer than the Vachons, who practice ESP and write about it.  Their family was even featured in Lisa Belkin's June 2008 New York Times piece, "When Mom and Dad Share It All."

Amy and Sheryl discuss the recent NY Times article about parents who just can't seem to let go of their children while the kids are at summer camp.

Then we meet Julie Shields, author of one of Mojo Mom's favorite books, "How to Avoid the Mommy Trap."  Julie's strategies help couples lay out a roadmap for truly shared parenting.
