Thanks to Mom: In this Mother’s Day show, we interviewed mothers and daughters to share their experiences with motherhood and family, their bond with one another, and how they have cultivated this bond. These honest interviews served as a medium through which children expressed their gratitude towards their mothers, as well as an opportunity for mothers to wholeheartedly appreciate their children for who they are. Through this, we brought forward heart-warming childhood and early motherhood memories from reminiscing mothers and daughters. This show emphasizes the importance of cherishing old memories and having a healthy, loving relationship with your mother or daughter. The participants found this therapeutic and joyful.
Father’s Day: Modern entertainment has never been the strongest in showcasing healthy and affectionate relationships between fathers and sons.

It is also a safe space where sons can openly express their gratitude to their dads for supporting them on their paths toward success. This heartwarming show never fails to illustrate the loving, powerful influence that fathers have on their sons’ lives.
