Brain Unblocked | Episode 32: Mommy Wine Time with Tessa Stuckey
Do you have a coffee mug that sasyss , "this might be wine"? Do you look forward to that first pour of the evening when you can finally "relax" after a busy day momming? Do the messages you get as a parent make it feel like no one could possibly do this job if it weren't for alcohol?
In this week's episode, I'm joined by Tessa Stuckey who shares her experience as a mom to 4 boys under 4 and being confronted with the reality that Mommy Wine Time wasn't doing her any favors.

Plus, our stories of injury and the role alcohol did and did not play in our recoveries!
Author of the book, For the Sake of Our Youth, and Adolescent and Family Therapist, Tessa Stuckey takes on today’s negative cultural effects on our kids’ mental health to a new level.
