    Episode 2 - "Am I Or Aren't I?" - Discussion of "signposts"

    in Moms and Family

    One of the most frequent questions we get from people is "am I an alcoholic?".   It's a quesiton that only the person asking can answer, however there are common signs of the disease progressing that people in sobriety talk about - commonly referred to as "signposts".  
    Our stories may be factually different, but many of the emotions and experiences down the road to addiction are the same.
    We thought it would be helpful to talk about some of the signposts we missed as our drinking pregressed.
    Lisa and Ellie will talk to special guest Michele, discuss their drinking history, and things they can identify now as warning signs that they were developing a problem.
    If you are listening and can idenitfy with any of the things we discuss, we will also provide resources where you can find safe people to talk to.

    Episode 81: Chocolate & Chips: Talking to Girls on the Precipice of Puberty

    in Moms and Family

    On Episode 80 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Leslie and Tesi gave listeners an intimate conversation about shame and self worth with author, mother, and all-around-wise-woman Aubrey Sampson. Based on listener feedback, it was clear that the themes of this podcast resonated: Shame. Our female bodies. How we can love them better and how we might teach our daughters to be empowered in their skin and have a healthy outlook on the human body they were born in. These themes are crucial and the women behind the podcast quickly decided they deserve a follow-up Mama Bear Mini.
    On Episode 81, Tesi and Leslie dive deeper into the cultural relationship to the female body and give listeners suggestions on how to promote healthy body image in their home. The two base their conversation on Tesi’s powerful blog post, “An Open Letter to My Daughter on the Precipice of Puberty,” and discuss body image, the beautiful attributes of femininity, the power of body language, sex, intimacy, and womanhood, all in hopes of shining the light on shame and furthering the conversation.
