In this episode, Jordan poses the question: what role should altered states play in parenting? Moreover, is “altered states” too broad a term? Could the topic of intoxication benefit from some semantic expansion? Through the power of the mind, Jordan explores the nuances and moral suppositions of altered parenting.
Jordan’s guests for the exploration are Heidi and Conan, the Wakefield children. They delve into the topics of literacy, poetry, death, meditation, dental hygiene and more! The original audio of the interview was pared down a bit in order to keep it interesting and easy to follow.
This episode’s wisdom nugget is provided by physician and author, Gabor Maté. This brief excerpt highlights the implications of present, healthy parenting.
