How to be a Wild and Free Family with Ainsley Arment

Ainsley Arment wants families to be wild and free. While that is going to look different for each of us, being wild and free means that we’re each creating the life we want with intention. As the author of The Wild and Free Family: Forging Your Own Path to a Life Full of Wonder, Adventure, and Connection and the founder and leader of the Wild + Free organization, Ainsley thinks a lot about what it means to build a meaningful and fulfilling life together with our kids. In her book and in this week’s discussion, she explores topics of family culture, pursuing a shared vision together, and making space for childhood wonder to flourish.
