My guest today is Ian O’Roarty.

Ian is my youngest child, he turned 15 October 30th, and is a freshman in high school. He is the baby in the house, and taller than us all. He is passionate about basketball, loves his friends, and has melted my mama heart since day one. I say that Ian is my “positive discipline” kid because he was the one who was always game to create a routine, or role play a situation, he was willing.

I’d say that Ian and I are very close, I will let him share his experience during the interview… He has always been really open with me, and it doesn’t seem like that is really anything that we haven’t talked about… He loves family time, when we are all together, and is super stoked to have his drivers permit.

I am honored that he is willing to come share candidly with all of you on the podcast.

Takeaways from the show:

  • Coping with covid
  • Challenges in the last year
  • Being a close relationship with your parents
  • Having a sibling who is going through mental health issues
  • Messaging on swearing in our house
  • Reading agreements
  • Screen time 
  • Thoughts from a teen about watching the Social Dilemma
  • Video games and limits
  • Managing screen time with online school
  • What it means to Ian to “be a man”
  • Toxic masculinity
  • Goals for the future
  • Advice to parents raising sons

What does Joyful Courage mean to you:

When I hear Joyful Courage I think about you and your company. I think it’s cool you help people. It’s good you're giving parents tools to mend their children. 

See you next week :)

My guest today is Rowan O’Roarty.

Rowan is my oldest child, she will be 18 in January, and one of my biggest teachers of personal growth. As we all do, we learn who we are as parents, through our relationships with our children. Rowan made me a mom, and continues to influence who I am in the world as I navigate what it means to mother her.

Rowan has been through her own journey of personal discovery over the past few years, maneuvering mental health challenges, dropping out of school, completing her GED, and stepping in to big responsibility while her dad and I were gone for 2 months going through my husband's cancer treatment.

I am honored that she is willing to come share herself and her journey so candidly with you all today.

Takeaways from the show:

  • Where the anxiety started
  • When Rowan became aware of her anxiety
  • Things we did that helped Rowan cope with depression and anxiety
  • Panic attacks 
  • Navigating anxiety attacks and how parents can be supportive
  • What depression feels like
  • Things parents can do that are helpful to their teen’s mental health
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy
  • Realizing only YOU can change your experience
  • What Rowan has learned about herself these past few years
  • Mental health and high school
  • Rowan’s freshman year
  • Opting into online school
  • Dropping out of school and gaining parent’s support
  • The GED test
  • Plans for the future

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

To me, when I hear Joyful Courage and I put it into the context of mental health in teens, I think of having courage. Having the courage to choose joy when the circumstances are against you or things aren’t working out. Finding joy and being so courageous to chase after it and be joyful.
