In this episode we talk about:

  • How to raise your child to grow into the genius that they truly are
  • What it was like for Freddy Jr. to grow up immersed in his father’s phsychiatric work (including sitting in on 24 hour nude group therapy sessions!)
  • The special connection between a father and son who have BOTH committed their lives to personal growth

Quotes from this episode:

“[My father] has always been committed to allowing me to be, uncover, and discover“

“I think there should be a program in school for children to learn how to consciously self love.”

“As your father I‘m going to attempt to be the best father I can be, make you the best person you can be, but a lot of times I’ll be wrong. A lot of times another person will be able to meet some of your needs that I can’t meet. And I hope that I can guide you in such a way that you can know who they are.”
