Josh Peck on Breaking the Cycle of Generational Trauma
1654

On today’s episode Ryan talks to actor Josh Peck about his experience growing up with a single mom and never meeting his father, the power of breaking the cycle of generational trauma, why parents have to embody the traits that they want their kids to have, and more.

Josh Peck is an American actor, comedian, and YouTuber. Josh began his career as a child actor in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and had an early role on The Amanda Show from 2000 to 2002. Peck rose to prominence for his role as Josh Nichols alongside Drake Bell's character in the Nickelodeon sitcom Drake & Josh from 2004 to 2007, and in its two television films in 2006 and 2008. His new book, which was released just yesterday, “Happy People Are Annoying,” is a humorous and candid memoir reflecting on the stumbles and silver linings of his life—including early struggles with food, drugs, self-esteem, and self-sabotage—and traces a zigzagging path to redemption.

Daily Dad on Why I Won’t Be Exploiting My Kids On Social Media
732

“It was a surprisingly easy decision to make: No posting kid photos on social media. My wife and I made this decision not because, like everyone, we’ve been bored to death by endless baby photos from friends. Not because I’m worried about anyone’s safety (though as a writer I’ve had a few creepy encounters). But to look at a sleeping baby, defenseless and pure, and think, How many likes do you think this will get? struck us as particularly gross.”

Ryan explains why he won’t post photos of his children on social media.

You Have To See It This Way

“The defining feature of this parenting life is how much stuff goes wrong. Plans dash to pieces. Your kids change their mind. They get hurt, stuff comes up, stuff gets cancelled. If you’re an anxious person, a stressed person, a fragile person, this stuff will kill you.”

Ryan explains why you always have to strive to get better.

What Did You Learn From This?
191

“There’s no question that the last year and half has been tragic. Millions of people have perished in a merciless pandemic, millions more are still dealing with the consequences. Businesses were destroyed. Jobs were lost that will never come back. Relationships were subjected to unimaginable strain, institutions were stretched to their breaking point.”

Ryan asks you what you learned from the last year and how you will apply it moving forward.

“We’ve told the story a bunch of times, but it’s so good, it’s worth repeating. In high school, Jim Valvano told his dad he was not only going to be a college basketball coach, but he was going to win a National Championship. A few days later, his dad pointed towards the corner of his bedroom, “See that suitcase?” “Yeah,” Jim said, “what’s that all about?” “I’m packed,” his dad explained. “When you play and win that National Championship I’m going to be there, my bags are already packed.” ”

It Should Be The Easiest Thing In The World

“Parenting is very hard. Keeping your kids safe. Keeping them fed. Keeping them in the best schools, making sure they get good grades in those schools. We have to do all this as we navigate a world where Murphy’s Law is real, where bills have to get paid, where we have our own crap to deal with that no one is going to handle for us.”

Everything Is A Phase

“It’s tricky to understand this because before you had kids, everything in your life seemed permanent. It just was. If your job sucked, it was never going to magically start not sucking. That was simply an element of the nature of the thing: it was a sucky job.”

Ryan explains why you have to be patient with this part of your child’s life.
