Danny and Maura Vega are two of the superstar parents featured in my upcoming Boundless Parenting book.
They are the founders of Fat Fueled Family LLC, a blog, podcast, and YouTube channel dedicated to leading a movement that empowers families to eat better, move more, and grow closer.

I interviewed Danny, the author of the children’s book series Unexplainable Adventures, the first fictional, character-based series of growth and development books geared specifically for children. After working as a basketball strength and conditioning coach, Danny spent ten years in the medical device industry before starting Fat Fueled Family LLC.

If you are searching for a holistic parenting approach where food, education, relationships, movement, spirituality, and the outdoors all hold an equally important space in your child's upbringing, you will love this episode. The Vega's are very purposeful when it comes to the food they eat as a family; we get to learn what foods are out, what foods are in, and why. They are also purposeful and passionate about the kind of schooling their children experience, learning from mistakes as they go. I enjoyed our quick chat about different kinds of "unschooling" methods and great resources that can help parents choose. 

I am a huge fan of creating Rites of Passage for my children. It's important to involve children in Rites of Passage as they move through different stages of life. This gives them a sense of independence, confidence, pride, and ownership over their life. Danny talks to us a bit about the Rites of Passage that he's laid out for his sons.
