S3: Episode 12 – about handling disappointment, traveling the world, and what 2023 taught us

The Victory Couch

Dec 21 2023 • 39 mins

From not getting what you wanted for Christmas, to not getting the grade you had hoped for and everything in between (and beyond), we discuss how we help our kids through life’s inevitable disappointments. We also discuss traveling to the world’s greatest monuments, what we thought would be cool as an adult but really isn’t and share what 2023 has taught us both. Squish into the couch as we share with our #victorycouchpotatoes yet another week! We are glad you’re here.

Show notes:

How do we help our kids through disappointment?

As a child, what did you think would be awesome about being an adult BUT once you are an adult isn’t as awesome as you thought it would be?

Friends https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108778/

Seinfeld https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098904/

If there was no budget (all expenses paid) and you won a trip to travel anywhere in the world to see one of the world’s monuments (i.e. The Seven Wonders of the World) where would you choose to travel?

What is one thing 2023 has taught you?

Couch crumbs: December came and is almost gone, family friend (teen) sick on his birthday

Prop your feet up: Got to be there for parent volunteer day, Dylan’s first vocal solo, time with the “Top Spud” (Ty)
