I’m thrilled to share this special Fathers Day Q&A with Brian Leaf, a self described parenting yogi and the author of Misadventures of a Parenting Yogi: Cloth Diapers, Cosleeping, and My (Sometimes Successful) Quest for Conscious Parenting. It’s a book that will have you laughing before page one, think Larry David by way of Ram Dass and throw two kids into the mix.
What have been your proudest moments as a father this past year?
So many. Watching my six-year-old expressing himself through dance. He’s like a small Billy Elliot. Watching my ten-year-olds passion for computers blossom. Giving them both space for this.
Of all the parenting philosophies you studied and wrote about in your book, which ones do you find yourself leaning towards the most?
Free Range Kids. I think it’s so important to let kids take risks and give them some (age appropriate) autonomy.
