Bernice Wachter, Mama Bear. A Conversation with Lori Wolfson and Andrea Wachter
Play • 33 min

Happy Mother's Day!  Sending some extra love today to all the extraordinary mothers out there!

And speaking of extraordinary mothers....

This week, Katie interviews her sisters-in law, Lori Wolfson and Andrea Wachter, about  their mother, Bernice Wachter. 

Bernice raised her kids in quintessential “Mama Bear" mode, striking the perfect balance between giving guidance and granting independence. She gave her children the room to make their own mistakes, but still pushed them to do what she sensed was right. 

And through all the ups and downs, Bernice has never lost her wonderful sense of humor!

Mother Mine is about our mothers and how they’ve shaped us. It will be coming to you as 75 short episodes in the voices of people from across the globe. I hope you’ll listen along as we explore who our mothers are and who we have become because of them.
