Tune in twice a month where we interview other parents in our community and around the world about raising kids in today's world. We talk about the daily joys and struggles of working towards a balanced family life. Sometimes it’s just us, having a conversation about what we’re learning about ourselves and our kids, and sometimes we interview other parents to learn about what they’re doing to raise good humans. We love connecting with people, learning about their 'why' and where they’re at in their journey. We love that everyone has different perspectives, seeing the world differently and interacting differently. We don't judge how people live their lives. So if you’re someone who enjoys learning about how other people are parenting, and you’re okay with listening to people who don’t take themselves too seriously and who certainly don’t have all the answers, you might find these conversations comforting. There are so many parents out there on a similar journey, and we think listening to others share their stories is one of the best ways to feel less alone and more connected. Follow along, leave feedback, or just listen for a bit of a laugh!

About us: We feel like we are one of the luckiest families in the world! We work online doing something we love for a living, and that affords us the opportunity to travel while spending time with our rapidly growing boys. We want to catalog as much of our experiences and adventures as we can while not missing out on anything! You can follow along on our Instagram account and Youtube channel to see where we are and what we’re up to.

    Kenny & Mackenzie - Sleep Coaching and teaching husbands how to be appropriate

    In this episode we talk to an awesome local Santa Cruz couple, Kenny and Mackenzie. We discuss Mackenzie’s passion for her work in Sleep Coaching (peacefulsleepingbaby.com) and how she came about becoming a Sleep Coach and Kenny’s passion for Yoga and how he uses it as a tool for his own personal development and growth, and how he travels the world to share this with other people and in turn be a catalyst for their own growth.

    We also discuss the dynamics of three children and how the news of the third came as a huge surprise to Mackenzie, and she talks candidly about how motherhood is not something she feels like she chose for herself and how she deals with that in her daily life.

    Warning: There are a few sexual jokes, profanity and borderline inappropriate things said in this podcast, so pursue at you leisure :-)

So glad I found this podcast!

Pat and Taz are genuine and authentic parents who absolutely love their children and seek answers to their questions from other parent. They’re humble, entertaining and engaging. They’ve got an amazing dynamic as a couple, and as a parent myself, I’ve found every episode a worthwhile listen.

The Tribe Life breaks down the day to day life of being a parent, a husband/wife, father/mother/son/daughter, all aspects of what a family is and gives a real account of what it means to be a family.
The interviews with guests are great, and obvioulsy well thought of as each new guest(s) contributes something new to learn or a lesson to take away.
