Season 2 – Episode 6: Sarah MacLaughlin, LSW –– author, speaker, and parenting educator

A human chat with heart with Sarah MacLaughlin, LSW – parenting educator, speaker, and author of the books What Not to Say: Tools for Talking to Young Children and the forthcoming Raising Humans with Heart: Not a How-To Manual.

We discuss the fastest way to choose to have an only, tall boys who eat all the things, hard truths of writing a parenting book before kids, holding ourselves to our highest standards in order to grow, accidental mindfulness, the creativity of parenthood, how support for parents and families continues to be a woefully missing piece in today’s society, opening the doors for the creativity fairy (no matter if you believe what you’re doing is creative or not), the necessity of unpacking our own history (and providing the reparenting to ourselves that we may have missed out on) in order to bring our best selves to our families, and a reminder that although there are many tools for you out there…YOU know your kids best – and you are doing a great job!
