Pete & Val Holmes: Psychedelics, Trauma & Hand in Hand Parenting

Father’s Day is around the corner! To celebrate, Katie is joined by her TV husband in the upcoming CBS sitcom Smallwood, comedian Pete Holmes and his wife IRL Val Holmes. Pete and Val recall how a bad mushroom trip triggered Val’s trauma-healing journey before their daughter arrived. The two also discuss why they decided on “Lila Jane” for their daughter’s name, and how they would handle her challenging behaviors through a technique called Hand in Hand parenting. Also, do you know how to respond when your child asks “What is God?” Pete and Val have a few ideas that involve Beyonce and Toy Story.
