    This would be on television, and it would require showing up at a studio in NYC on Tuesday, March 5th.

    If you're interested about the subject (e.g. if mothers taking Xanax to relax are doing so to become better parents or are self-medicating to the detriment of their children) and have a lot of Hubs about parenting (that clearly demonstrates you're a parenting writer / mommy blogger), let me know ASAP (ideally by the end of the day today)!

    It's probably best if you contact me directly here: http://simonesmith.hubpages.com/#email

    Just thought I'd share the opportunity. big_smile

      What a fantastic opportunity Simone. I can fake it until I make it - just kidding. The only children I have are the butterfly cocoons in the back garden. Yet, there should be many here who would like an adventure of discovery while exploring within a publicly aired TV program. Please be sure to keep us informed of the airing date and time.

    Sorry. Tv would stress me out to the point where I'd have to take a couple xanax.

    What a drag it is getting old.

    "Things are different today,"
    I hear ev'ry mother say
    Mother needs something today to calm her down
    And though she's not really ill
    There's a little yellow pill
    She goes running for the shelter of her mother's little helper
    And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day.

    "Things are different today,"
    I hear ev'ry mother say
    Cooking fresh food for a husband's just a drag
    So she buys an instant cake and she buys a frozen steak
    And goes running for the shelter of her mother's little helper
    And to help her on her way, get her through her busy day.

    Doctor, please, some more of these
    Outside the door, she took four more
    What a drag it is getting old.

    "Men just aren't the same today,"
    I hear ev'ry mother say
    They just don't appreciate that you get tired
    They're so hard to satisfy. You can tranquilise your mind
    So go running for the shelter of your mother's little helper
    And four help you through the night, help to minimise your plight.

    Doctor, please, some more of these
    Outside the door, she took four more
    What a drag it is getting old.

    Life's just much too hard today,"
    I hear ev'ry mother say
    The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore
    And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose
    No more running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
    They just helped you on your way through your busy dying day.

    Oh, they are for sure self-medicating to the detriment of their children (no judgement, but truth), and I know of this, as my granddaughters' mother did this, and now, they do not even know their own mother (who never cared about getting help, as it was offered over and over---addiction is a disease), as she went downhill very fast and they would have been in harms' way.  So my son has custody (he is 24 now), and he is a great dad.  Initially, he had to remove them from their home and come to live with us for approximately 18 months and he is now on his own. The girls were only 3 months old and a little over two years old at the time.  Very sad for all, indeed!
