Perfectly Imperfect with Christine and Regina

#40 - Dear Mama with Chris Dinh (chrisdinh)

Episode Summary

A child’s relationship with his/her mom can be complicated. We have this ideal image of a mother is one who *should* ALWAYS provide nurture, care, and unconditional love, but sometimes, this just isn't our reality. As first generation Asian Americans, our relationships with our moms face extra obstacles such as language and cultural barriers, which can make being open and honest with each other extremely difficult. This week, our good friend, Chris Dinh joins us as we dive deeper and explore what our moms' stories are: who they were growing up, what their hopes and dreams were, what they sacrificed and overcame. Knowing their story is key in getting to know yours and untangling years of misunderstandings, regret, and resentment.
