Transcript for Tips for how mothers can deal with ‘mom rage’ during times of the pandemic
Parenting in normal times is tricky enough, add a pandemic and you've got a recipe for what some are calling mom rage, and janai's been looking into it. Reporter: It happens to almost every mom -- they sound off with frustration. Just go to city college and then to jail and then back to city college and maybe you'd learn to pull yourself up and -- not expect everybody to -- Reporter: Like in movie "Lady bird." Moms are expressing what's being dubbed mom rage. The term coined for the intensified anger moms feel during pregnancy is now spilling over to everyday life.
