23. A Dad's Parenting Perspective with Michael Kilpatrick (part 2)
Our podcast this morning completes an interview with Michael Kilpatrick, a continuation of podcast #22 from last week. Michael Kilpatrick is a farmer, podcast host, and inventor who helps farmers and others apply business principles and practical, proven solutions to grow their businesses and simplify their lives. He runs farmer training programs and he owns and operates the Farm on Central in Ohio. And of course, he is a dad!
Besides growing farmers and their businesses, he incorporates his faith in his daily life, and being a good dad to his growing family is a priority as well. Michael shares his thoughts and experiences in parenting. I really enjoyed talking to him as he was transparent with us and had some very interesting thoughts.

Michael referred to an author whom he has learned from. I haven't read his books, but here are links to a couple of his books about healing from emotionally toxic environments. I would love to hear your thoughts about them!
Michael talked about things that may be out of some of the mainstream channels of thought.
