Have a parenting question you want answered on the show?

Every Thursday, I’m joined by Dr. Emily Upshur and Dr. Rebecca Hershberg for Beyond The Sessions, a special segment to answer YOUR parenting questions. 

We’ll offer you guidance and advice from the perspective of clinical psychologists highly trained in developmental science and real-life moms who get that parenting is messy, and sometimes we have to laugh, cry, and throw out the “rules.”

My "go to" as a new mom
An enlightened and reassuring resource that makes you more confident in your parenting. There's so much you could follow and listen to, and I find myself coming back to this podcast every time. No overwhelming or deflating lists of "shoulds" here. Dr. Sarah Bren offers insightful perspective you can easily act on (or not - she leaves it up to you by giving you a solid foundation to inform why you choose to do or not do something as a parent). Something you'll both enjoy listening to and get so much out of - I highly recommend.

Best part of my Tuesdays!
Best! Podcast! Ever! It’s been a game changer for my family. I got my husband listening too and now we’re both hooked.

Amazing network of support
I struggled a bit after the birth of my daughter. I wish I had this podcast to listen to then. It would have really helped me feel like I wasn’t alone. New mamas out there - this is a must listen!

I am better because of this show!!
I am so happy to have found this podcast. It makes complex topics easy to follow and is so entertaining. And I love how it’s changed the way I parent. Now that I understand what’s going on in my son’s brain I am so much better at parenting with empathy. Thanks Dr. Sarah - from me and my son!

Absolutely fantastic!
What resonated most with me is that it’s okay to mess up and it’s okay to not meet our children’s needs all the time. As a first time mom to a very emotional and active 11 month old, it’s been difficult for me to embrace that so thank you for sharing the why behind it. Can’t wait to hear more!

Let me know what you think of the podcast too!

My mission is to equip you with the tools you need to be the best parent you  can be for YOUR unique child.

Hi! I’m Dr. Sarah Bren. I’m a licensed clinical psychologist and mom of two.

I love helping parents understand the building blocks of child development and how secure relationships form and thrive. Because when parents find their inner confidence, they can respond to any parenting problem that comes along and raise kids who are healthy, resilient, and kind.
