Uncovering the Magic of Parenting An Old Soul with Max and Olgitta Wood

"Parenting goes both ways. You are parenting them, and they're parenting you, too. Sometimes, it overlaps; sometimes, Max teaches me more than I teach him." - Olgitta Wood. 

Parenting an old soul can be twice as challenging and thrice as rewarding, fun, and exciting. 

In this episode, I'm joined by the seven-year-old internet sensation, SAG-E Actor, and Chef Max and his mother, Olgitta Wood. Despite "being afraid" of kids and "not knowing" what to do with them before becoming a mother, Oligtta's instincts kick in right on time, and since Max was a little baby, she knew the kind of love and support she needed to provide for him to glow. Max built a massive audience on Instagram, with almost 30K followers, where he shares his favorite recipes and fabulous cooking tips. 

Throughout this episode, you'll hear Olgitta's thoughts on parenting an old soul, her approach to incentivizing and giving space for kids' self-expression, and how personal growth tools helped her raise Max. You'll also hear about Max's passion for cooking, his favorite recipes, the emotional intelligence hacks Olgitta taught him to deal with frustration and anger, and much more.
