In this special Mother's Day episode of The Change Guru, I talk to Gina Fenton, a New York mother of four teenagers, who's best known to thousands around the world as "Extreme Mom".

Gina uses social media as a way of sharing her personal experience through motherhood as well as supporting others. Her sharp wit, dead honest delivery and "in the trenches right their with you" style has gathered a huge and faithful following.

Gina puts it like this:

"Extreme Mom is a running commentary of the actual conversation taking place in my head. My thought bubble on speaker phone.

The extreme label is by no means incidental. A fairly accurate description would be; matriarch extraordinaire of four teens, including  a BONUS from God called ADHD, OCD, Aspergers, Bipolar and every-other-quirk not yet recognized in the DSM. Been there, done that.

Proud member of the Parental Special Forces. That's like a Green Beret, but with more practical skills.

My castle is  always chaos. 

Blogging and making inappropriate jokes prevents me from face-planting, nose first, into the cuckoo's nest."

I can't think of a better person to have us honor ourselves and our mothers this Mother's Day - You'll love meeting and be inspired by the unique perspective of "Extreme Mom".
