The 2016 Listen To Your Mother Chicago Videos Are Live!

by Melisa on July 15, 2016

They’re here! They’re here!

It always feels like a holiday when the new LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER videos are released for all to enjoy. After the triumph of a fantastic season—and 2016 was indeed fantastic, giving motherhood a microphone in 41 cities, resulting in more than 500 new stories to add to our collection—we all wait on the edge of our seats for the day when we can share the stories with the world. Now YOU can check out the stories from the Chicago show and our 40 sister cities on YouTube, at your leisure!

We recommend that you watch the Chicago show (and any other city) in “playlist order”, which is how the stories were presented live on May 1. Our whole show can be viewed like that HERE, and here are the links to the individual stories:


Don’t stop with Chicago, though. Our extraordinary 2016 season videos feature powerful voices that capture all facets of contemporary parenting (as well as stories about our own upbringing) including very timely personal narratives given the recent events in Orlando, Baton Rouge, Shaker Heights, and Dallas. On the Listen To Your Mother YouTube channel we feature a variety of playlists by topic, and for 2016 we’ve added two new playlists–one with stories about race, and another with stories from LGBTQ families.

Once again we’d like to thank our National Media Sponsor BlogHer and the incredible businesses that supported LTYM Chicago on a local level: Northwestern Medicine Prentice Women’s Hospital, Chicago Parent magazine, Anicca Float Club, DL Loft, Naperville Moms Network, Little Beans Cafe, Aquarium Salon, Chicago Elevated, Naperville Art League, Balee Images, and Samantha Schultz and Marisa Vales.

Lastly, many thanks to our cast, audience, families, and friends for your support and love of LTYM. Happy video release week, and enjoy the rest of the summer!
