I had the pleasure of meeting some of the amazing mothers of The Mom's View at a conference a few years ago.
Their video format is very reminiscent of daytime talk show from the '90s with a more updated look, of course. Katilette of the Shaytards, CarlieStylez, HeyKayli, That Chick Angel TV, and their friends discuss everything about child rearing from how to deal with the terrible twos to parenting tips and tricks, and everything in between.
They recently started a series called "The Real Housewives of YouTube." The hilarious series is a funny spin off of Bravo's hit Real Housewives franchise. It's definitely a must-see.
10. And ... me! WeatherAnchorMama
When I decided to quit my full-time weather gig in NYC last summer to spend more time with my family, uploading videos on a regular basis has become a great way to keep my creative juices flowing while helping other families navigate through the challenges of parenthood.
My husband and I, along with our two children, invite people into our crazy lives. We also have a series called Couples Chat that you'll also find here on mom.me , where we chat about everything from adjusting to life as a stay-at-home mom and raising biracial kids to how to keep a marriage sexy when you have little ones running around.
My daughter and I also do fun hair tutorials for kids with curly hair, plus cool science experiments, crafts and recipes.
It's so amazing what you can learn just by watching other moms. For me, my channel has helped me connect with other parents. It's amazing how much uploading a video can make someone laugh and get them through tough times.
These moms have done just that. So, if you have a moment, be sure to check them out and subscribe!
