About the author

Sarah MacLaughlin is a licensed social worker, parent educator, and author of the award-winning, bestselling book, What Not to Say: Tools for Talking with Young Children (Bay Island Books, 2010). She wrote the Parenting Toolbox column at Parent & Family for 8 years and has been featured on HuffPost and many online outlets. 

Sarah is obsessed with brain science and child development, and is passionate about advocating for kids and the adults who care for them. When moms and dads are supported and understand themselves and their children, everyone has more fun.

Sarah has worked with children, youth, and parents for over 20 years and has extensive experience with blended, foster, and adoptive families. She has presented many professional development workshops and conference sessions for educators and social workers. Sarah helps caregivers and parents see the bigger picture. She knows that grown-ups crave a deeper understanding with regard to brains, behavior, and caring for children in a developmentally appropriate way.  

Sarah lives in the woods of Maine with her husband and son; a tweenager who gives her plenty of opportunities to take her own advice.

Update #4 - THANK YOU! July 10, 2019

It's the final hour of my campaign and I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who preordered. I am taking a vacation from my computer next week and will start back on the manuscript in my free time after that.

If you have my first book, read my blog, or follow me on social, you know what's coming in this book: compassion, common sense, relatable stories, brain science, a relationship-based approach, a sense of humor, and more.

ALSO, I will be looking for PARENT VOICES for this book. So stay tuned for opportunities to share your experiences, struggles, and successes. 

I can't wait and thanks again!

Sarah
