Greetings, beautiful Mamas, and welcome back to another episode of MAMAQ. Today, we're tackling a question that often leaves many mothers puzzled and seeking guidance. It's a tricky one, but we're up for the challenge.

In this episode, we'll be taking a closer look at mamas living with teenagers, through the lens of matrescence. As you probably already know, matrescence is the term used to describe the transformative journey that women go through after becoming mothers. It's a process that involves significant physical, emotional, and psychological changes that continue throughout a woman's life.

Similarly, adolescence is a time of transformation from youth to maturity, and it too can be informed by the principles of matrescence. Drawing on my many years of research, experience, and teaching, I believe we can shed some light on this complex topic.

Especially because i have joining me on this episode is my special guest, Linda Anderson. Linda is an experienced Mama Rising coach and matrescence guru who will be answering a question from one of our listeners. Together, we'll be exploring how matrescence can change the way we approach and view the relationships we have with our teenage children.

If you're a mother with a teenager or simply curious about the changes that mothers go through as their children grow up, then you won't want to miss this episode.

So sit back, relax, and let's delve deeper into the new world of matrescence.
