Emancipate Your Mind: 117: What We’ve Learned About Parenting Since Leaving High-Demand Religion with Kevin Hales

When we left Mormonism, we were terrified of what that would mean for our kids. It’s been 6 years of trusting ourselves as parents, trusting our kids input about what they want for their lives, and creating a dynamic parenting strategy together. While it has been far from perfect, we’re pleased with how things are going.

This podcast is a conversation about what we’ve learned along the way.


Kevin Hales is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado and Religious Trauma Coach with services available around the world. He specializes in marriage and family issues including religious deconstruction, healing from religious trauma, and parenting teens.
