How does wine, prescription drugs and the Internet affect you as a mom?

The June Cleavers and Carol Bradys of yesterday made it look pretty easy to be a mom – but we know it’s not all vacuuming with pearls! Stay-at-home and working moms alike, the pressures of having a family and raising kids seem greater than ever and we found more and more women are looking for relief, looking to transform into Super Mom, looking for a little (or a lot of) help. And whether it’s the Internet, prescription drugs or a glass of wine, many are self-medicating. Today, I talk with a variety of moms: some who say “Mom needs wine,” others, “Xanax makes me a better mom,” one mom whose Adderall addiction turned deadly and another whose Facebook addiction was a problem. What do you think about wine play dates, prescription drugs like Xanax and Adderall and how the Internet affects you as a mom?
