The World's Most Profound Parenting Wisdom, Now Available In Your Ears
As you may know, in February of this year I released Boundless Parenting, a labor of love made up of interviews with some of the most incredible parents on the planet and their combined wisdom.
This book is designed to be a guide to, well, guiding your youngins in a world where navigating the act of raising a family has become a lost art.
The interviews in Boundless Parenting range from Bryan Johnson of Blueprint to my friends Dr. Dan and Merily Pompa, and many, many more. The text is chock full of all sorts of tools and tactics, from teaching your kids how to fast (and when it would be appropriate) to the ways Jessa and I have invested in the Greenfield family legacy. It has everything you need to go from lost-puppy-without-a-clue to grade-A super parent.
Now Boundless Parenting is available as the ultimate audio experience, as each chapter's narration comes not just from me and my wife Jessa, but also from each contributing parent's voice.
That’s right, you get to hear each parent read their chapter from their own perspective, making this audiobook come to life.
The parents, including my very own mom, my dad, myself, my wife, and many other models of practical parenting wisdom, delve into the fascinating realms of education, discipline, parenting, legacy, and so much more with specifics like:
- The best methods for developing lifelong immunity, cellular resilience, mental toughness, and overall health in a child
- How to manage your time, deal with overwhelm, care for yourself, and maintain high levels of productivity and health while raising children
- Family mission statements to family brands, traditions, and routines that foster pride and a strong identity in children
- Parents like Naveen Jain reveal how anyone can start a non-profit for their child for generational wealth building
- The crazy, controversial primal secrets of “tiger dad” parents like The Liver King and Joe Desena
- Lenore Skenazy on why she's America's Worst Mom (and why you should be too!)
- Joseph Anew and Emilia Run's advice on respectful parenting, slowing down, and controversial topics like co-sleeping
- Angie Fletcher on the intriguing traditions she began with her oldest child as a single, divorced mother
- My own parents Gary and Pat Greenfield on how they raised me and my 4 siblings to approach the world in a far different, outside-the-box way compared to other kids
- And much more!
I’ve even included a sneak peek just for you in the form of today’s podcast, so you can start learning right here, right now!
Listen to me go over my love and logic parenting philosophy, how Boundless Parenting came to be, and other sections directly from the book.
Because parenting isn’t something you have to do alone. Remember the saying? It takes a village?
Let my book and the incredible parents in it be your village. Check out the audiobook release of Boundless Parenting here.
Show Your Dad The Biohacking Love With My Vetted & Approved Father's Day Gift Guide!
I’m joking, of course. All your father truly needs is time, love, and presence, just like any cherished human being, including you.
But it certainly is a head-nod to your father’s greatness to hook him up with a few cool tools that he can use to look more muscular and ripped in that ugly sweater your sibling bought him for Father's Day; drop a few pounds without him having to chew on pure cardboard cereal; and fix up his “Here, hold my beer” injuries in no time flat using scientifically proven biohacking technologies that will make all aspects of your dad’s life better, and his friends super jealous.
So based on all that, I’ve compiled a handy Father's Day gift guide that has all the healthy and active lifestyle stuff your siblings probably don’t know about and probably won’t get your dad.
From discounted luxury ice baths, to electrolytes and ketones that also work damn well in a margarita, or a surprisingly effective substitute for his favorite beer, to a biofeedback-based stress monitoring device he can use the next time your mom gives him a weekend to-do list – I’ve got it all here, and more…
Because what says “I love you” like turning your father's Dad-Bod into Mr. Incredible? And because price should never stop you from celebrating, I've designed this guide for all budgets. Whether you're getting dad the biggest gift he'll receive this year, or just need effective and affordable tools to help him sleep, de-stress, and get fit, I've got you covered.
Get all the Father's Day toys, tools, and treats your dad could ever want, all with staggering holiday discounts, right here.

Product Of The Week
::: Get 50% Off Your First Order Of This Filler-Free Children’s Multivitamin Gummy :::
Whether it's due to nutrient-poor plants, nutrient-poor animals, nutrient-poor milk, or nutrient-poor water, most diets are now so micronutrient deficient that they require on average 27,575 calories to supply all the essential nutrients you need.
In other words, in our modern era, you would need to be stuffing your face all day long to actually get what your body needs!
Now imagine the implications for growing young children.
The problem is that most children's multivitamins are little more than candy with a fancy label, containing up to two teaspoons of sugar per dose and all sorts of artificial chemicals and gummy materials that no child or adult should ever consume.
Hiya, here’s your alternative. No, really, that's what it's called.
Hiya is a pediatrician-approved chewable multivitamin that is free of the added sugars and harmful ingredients found in most children's vitamins.
It was created with the assistance of nutritional experts and includes 12 real fruits and vegetables as well as 15 essential vitamins and minerals.
These include vitamin D, B12, C, zinc, folic acid, and a variety of others that aid in immunity, energy, brain function, mood, concentration, teeth, bones, and other functions. In essence, it contains everything youngins need to grow up healthy and resilient.
Plus, it’s tasty, and thank God for that! Ever try to convince your 5-, 6-, or 7-year-old to take your adult multivitamin? Good luck.
As a father, Hiya was a game changer in raising my boys. Jessa and I have always aimed to educate our sons on different topics like nutrition, exercise, etc., and then let them make decisions themselves. I first started using Hiya, hoping to make one of those decisions just a bit easier, and low and behold, my kids were hooked (and not just my kids).
On many occasions, I’ve been known to forgo my own high-end multivitamin in favor of a few tasty Hiya chewables, and even though my boys are older now and don’t mind taking pills, Hiya is still their preferred multivitamin.
And now, just for you, I’ve worked out a special deal with Hiya. When you use this link, you’ll get a whopping 50% off your first order!

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
I just wanted to quickly thank all of you who ordered a copy of my book, Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
After two years of interviewing some of the top parents on the planet…
…. from crazy macho Alpha dads like the controversial “Liver King” and Spartan race founder Joe DeSena…
…to peaceful backwoods, unschooling, off-grid gardeners, and homemakers (including my children’s wilderness survival instructors and my own wife Jessa)…
…to outside-the-box thinking fitness icons like Kelly and Juliet Starrett, Paul Chek, and the Vega “Fat Fueled Family”…
…to a host of other entrepreneurs, billionaires, single moms, and dads, my own dear parents, pastors, education experts, legacy builders, wealth managers, and many others who have created impactful, happy, and resilient children…
…I’ve finally put the finishing touches on a 600+ page parenting book that is the most comprehensive parenting book that exists. It’s like the blueprint for raising a human.
If Boundless Parenting does make even the smallest impact on your life, I would love it if you could help me spread the word far and wide, by:
- Leaving a review on Amazon
- Sharing the book on social media and tagging me (@bengreenfieldfitness)
- Buying a copy for your friends and family
Thanks again for all your support!
