In this episode: “Mother.” The word conjures up so many images, feelings, and memories, but it means one thing – a woman, in relation to her children. In “Motherland”, we meet three moms with experience mothering abroad in Germany and the US to explore the mother-child relationship, and what that means when raising children in a country other than your own. Things like societal expectations, geography, and even government policy can alter the role of “mother.”
