The Motherhood Metamorphosis
Whitney Fleming: Parenting teens, vulnerability, and finding yourself in motherhood
Show Notes

Whitney Fleming is a mom of three teen girls and married to one of the most patient men on Earth.  She is the co-manager of the popular blog Parenting Teens and Tweens, and writes musings on her Facebook and Instagram at Whitney Fleming Writes.  She brings an authentic and realistic voice to topics such as marriage, mid-life, and mental health, and believes being vulnerable and sharing your story is the most powerful way we can help others.

Whitney and I dive into all things raising teens in this episode! The teenage years can be a huge transition for mothers and can leave us feeling like we are in the goop all over again, wondering who we are as women and who we are becoming as our kids grow up.

We talk about transitions and vulnerability, the power of going first, feeling lonely and trying to find community during the teen years, growing into new versions of ourselves, and growth as women even as our children begin their journey out of the home.

Beautiful, honest, and encouraging conversation. Don't miss this (even if you aren't in the teen years yet!)
