    In Episode 110, Kyle and Sara, LPCs, discuss the challenges we faced changing how we parented. Being calm, patient, and loving came much easier to one of us and it was much harder for the other.

Sara and I give some tips on how we help parents get on the same page and we have a little surprise off...

    “Are We There Yet? How Can We Enjoy The Journey As Parents?” (Ep 106)

    In Episode 106, Kyle and Sara, LPCs, discuss how embracing parenting as a journey rather than a destination has changed how we view each stage with our children. As parents we often resist the present moment and white knuckle our way through the sleepless nights and all of the diapers.

Every stage we go through with our kids can be endured or it can enjoyed, it is up to us and it models a lot to...

So helpful!

Before my son was born I knew I wanted to approach parenting intentionally, I started learning more about conscious/respectful parenting and loved the idea, but I found that the scripts and “say this instead of that” wasn’t really working for me. I’m so glad I found this podcast because it gives practical tips and also emphasizes the fact that mistakes will happen and what matters so much is the repair! This podcast provides encouragement and also celebrates creativity within parenthood! Parenting really isn’t a one-size-fits-all, and I love that you can see the different ways Sarah and Kyle approach topics!

Love the show

This podcast gives us practical and easy ways that we can make small changes to parent without guilt! By instituting these small changes into our parenting, we’re able to focus more on the relationships we have with our kids instead of punishing and handing out consequences all the time! I really enjoy listening. Kyle and Sarah are great at sharing everything, even the struggles to make us realize it’s not perfection that we seek, but that it’s a journey.
