Amanda's mother had no time for her daughter. Dr, Hart was a host on a call & talk show. Even though Dr. hart is there to talk to people about their problems, she had barely any time to talk to her own daughter, Amanda.
Sorry, Amanda, I have to go to my job. I have to get to the stage before 7 o'clock.
Amanda called her moms assistant for her show. She gave her name away as Claire so her mom wouldn't know it was her.
Hello. I'm Claire and I have a problem with my mom. She doesn't have any time with me.
Amanda's mom Dr. Hart
The next day...
Okay, thank you.
At the end of Amandas call..
I believe that you should ask her to out with lunch with you. So you can talk to her.
Amanda could tell that Dr. Harts advice wouldn't work. Her mom was having a bad day and Amanda didn't want to make it worse.
Hey, mom can I talk to you...
...Now the producer is having a fight with his wife... he was talking to me about it more than I was talking to my patients.
Amanda is explaining to Dr. Hart that her advice wouldn't work. Even if she did try.
"The thing about my mother is that she has all these wounded birds who have really important problems and they take all the time she has."
And in the end, Amanda and her mom had a talk over lunch. And the theme of this story is, you might have some challenging parts in your life, keep trying even if it's not easy.
You know Amanda, that on this show, we want people to come on here and tell us what their problem-even if it's not easy.
