Comedian Joanie Quinn shares how she discovered that her kids developed and mastered the skill of handling disappointment - all from having her as a mediocre menopause mom. Using humor and some twisted common sense, she thinks other parents might try using disappointment as a teaching tool... and look for life lessons that can help their kids practice handling disappointment. When the ice cream falls off the cone, what can a parent do? Joanie Quinn is a rainbow haired, menopause mom of four, who worked on comedy sitcoms in Hollywood before she became a breeder in Oregon. Joanie regularly produces & performs in SW Portland’s premiere comedy show “Spilt Milk: you’ll laugh til you cry!”, Harvey’s Comedy Club, and has performed in the Idaho Laugh Fest, San Francisco’s Mutiny Radio Comedy Fest, Eugene’s Women’s Comedy Festival, the Burbank Comedy Festival, and more. She’s saving up for her kid’s therapy one performance at a time! This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
