“There’s no love more intense than the love we have for our children,” says Arianna Huffington. “And wherever you find intense love, you’re sure to find intense fear lurking just beneath the surface.”
In this exclusive Becoming Fearless video, Arianna and other celebrities who are parents — Martha Stewart, ‘The View’ cohost Sherri Shepherd, comedian Gilbert Gottfried — share some of the wisdom they’ve learned from raising their own kids and offer real-world advice on how you, too, can become a fearless parent.
Notes Arianna, “As women, our fears about our children’s safety become mixed up with our fears about our worth as parents. I’m convinced that when they take the baby out, they put the guilt in.”
The 10-part Becoming Fearless video series is sponsored by Toyota Corolla and will run through August. Hosted by Arianna Huffington and inspired by her book “On Becoming Fearless,” the series will explore how fear affects our lives — while celebrating the strength, courage and resilience that result from overcoming it (or at least trying to).
During the course of the series, Arianna will be joined by noted individuals — comedian Kathy Griffin, mogul Barbara Corcoran, E! News anchor Giuliana Rancic — as they examine fearlessness and its impact on all aspects of life, including love, money, parenting, work, health and beauty.
