The mothers of our fictions: strong women who often face adversity

Mothers are very present in our fictions and often have their hands full. Take a look at some of them who have faced special challenges this season.

Although they spend long and unpredictable hours tending to the patients who arrive at the hospital, they remain concerned for the welfare of their offspring. Isabelle’s son is autistic. She has woven a social web around him with his mother and her lover so that Siméon is never alone after school and can express himself in whatever piques his curiosity.

For her part, Emmanuelle has long worried about the fate of her son Jérémie, even though he is an adult. Although he is mourning his father abroad, he still needs support and a good relationship can only benefit both of them.

No mother wants to see her child suffer. In the face of illness, a mother must be strong, a warrior. She can also crack, but without ever losing hope. This is the case of Anne, whose son Albert was in a coma for a long time. The doctors didn’t have many options left. Here he is in rehab and Anne is in the front row.

Chantal shares the sword of Damocles hovering over the head of Félix, who, despite treatments and surgeries, is dying of cancer. She nurtures her son’s positivism, who never loses heart.

It’s the mom on the radar, the one whose instincts don’t lie, watching and acting. While she believed in her husband for a while, she now rejects leads that could endanger her children’s safety. And she’s fine, there are a few deviant raptors lurking in the family. Closing your eyes or denying out of love opens the door to abuse.

In the final season of L’Échappée, several mothers were entitled to their salvation, proving that it’s possible to mend the past and build on better foundations. Sonia overcame her addiction and is now a caring and devoted mother. She is reconnected with her son and is strong enough to help Joséphine, Thomas’ daughter with whom she shares her life.

Macha trusts herself more after becoming entangled in Jean-Simon’s false beliefs. She no longer sees herself as a cheat looking after the children her sister entrusted to her, or Astrid she never dared to look after. We can tell that she now values ​​her family unit.

And Julie broke free from her spouse to reconnect with her son Manu, who has felt unsupported for too long. Being a mother isn’t a long, straight line, and that’s a good thing.

Do parents have the right to lie to their child? Since the relationship is based on love and trust, the question arises. Especially since Anne’s lie had an impact on Camille’s whole life. Also about his identity. Born as twins, she always believed her brother was dead. Sometimes a mother’s strength also lies in facing her vulnerability and a truth that is not the one she wants.

Daughter of a mother who is losing her memory and mother of a man who goes to school, Cindy juggles between her two loves who need her at a very different moment in her life. And that without counting on her promotion, for which she has to rise to the occasion. The mental strain at its peak.

It can’t be said that Melanie lacks maternal instincts. She’s even willing to raise a forgotten baby in hopes her parents never claim it for themselves. Her own son, a perpetual teenager, stays with the house and she doesn’t complain about it. Even his girlfriend settled there during their romance.

Mother and daughter go through a similar situation. Her family life fulfilled her. But it happens that as soon as the children grow up, happiness can be found in other arms. Which doesn’t detract from the love they feel for their children. Because beyond the mother there is the woman. Which is not self-evident.

It is the mother’s representative. There are a lot of them, especially in sports. Her dream of playing at a high level was shattered when she became pregnant. Since her youngest son Charles had talent, it was an opportunity for her to achieve her goals in her journey. She became adamant and did not appreciate the impact of her demands. Hard hits softened them. We remain a mother, especially in times of need.

Always on the ball, Sylvie is a caring mother who wants her children to be happy even if she doesn’t always understand them. She adapts to the discourse of her queer and militant daughter. She wants her son Tanguy to disappear from his screen for a bit, but gives herself the right to start a new chapter in life, having now guided them into adulthood.

Lucy Robert (Kathleen Fortin) In Reasonable doubt

As a seasoned investigator, Lucie has often sacrificed her private life for her job. His son always held a grudge against him and was not an “easy” kid. She loves him no less. Sometimes flirting with the bottle, she is wracked with worries since her behavior got out of hand.

Isabella (Christine Beaulieu) In the eye of the storm

She learns to “let go”. Isabelle is a cool and guilt free mom. She knows that nothing will ever be perfect, but she practices “doing her best,” which ensures her three children, even the most anxious, develop their autonomy.
