#139: Children and Mental Illness with Lynn Cowell

Lynn and her husband, Greg, have been married for over 30 years and are the parents of three young adults. They enjoy spending time together, especially when it combines the mountains, well-worn sweatshirts, and anything with chocolate and peanut butter. Lynn, her family, and the occasional backyard deer, live near Charlotte, North Carolina.

What we chat about:

  • how being empty-nesters has affected Lynn's marriage
  • seeking purpose outside of your children
  • helping your kids find their identity in their pre-teens
  • changing the expectations we often place on our children
  • what to do when you receive conflicting advice
  • protecting your children's privacy on your social media accounts
  • advice for parents who think their child might suffer from a mental illness
  • how Lynn's daughter's diagnosis has drawn her closer to Christ
  • balancing your relationship with your kids after they've left home
