Come talk to other parents
& tell your pandemic stories.
We start February 4th.
Fridays from 1pm-2:30pm Eastern (GMT-5).
February 4th — March 4th, 2022.
Parent Talk is a weekly gathering where you’ll join me & other parents for a 90-minute community call. Each week, we’ll explore a topic of conversation, starting with story time and reflection, and then break into small groups for you to share with each other.
One of the biggest afflictions of motherhood, fatherhood, and new parenthood is how isolating and lonely it can be. That was before the pandemic. Now, we have a millions of new parents that have entered this transition in a world of social isolation, distancing, and virus fears. The last few years have been absurd.
Every week, I hear from parents that they feel trapped, isolated, alone, overwhelmed, and filled with rage. Some parents don’t know what to compare their experience to, because they don’t know anything different—or they just haven’t spent enough time with other parents to gain the collective wisdom needed from community.
Last week, a group of 20 mothers gathered in Boston just to scream together. While I can’t fix the pandemic—oh how I wish I could—what I can do is create a little space for us to connect with each other.
Fridays, February 4, 11, 18, 25 and March 4. Group sessions are online from 1:00-2:30pm Eastern (10-11:30am Pacific). Calls are 90 minutes.
What Parent Talk Includes
- Five 90-minute sessions guided by Sarah & guest teachers, that are conversation-based and designed to give you space to meet with and connect with other parents.
- Small group discussions. We’ll ease into the conversations with a short story time and time for reflection. Then, you’ll get to break out into small groups to share your stories with each other. Each week, you’ll meet several other parents living through this in their own ways.
- A private Slack room for the duration of the five weeks—you’ll get to follow up on the prompts, watch replays of the calls if you missed them, and connect with other parents.
- Weekly question prompts posted each week in the Slack room for optional bonus conversations.
- A #rage channel in the Slack room for you to scream about whatever needs to be screamed about.
Small Group Private Voxer Circle
- You can add on a private audio channel for you to connect with a small group of other parents throughout the course of the month.
- Group sizes will be approximately 4 to 6 people.
- You’ll receive bonus prompt questions and learn how to use one of my favorite online tools. I will explain how it works and how to use it if you’re a newbie.
- Voxer lets you talk to other people when it’s convenient for you without having to add anything concrete to your schedule—most people use Voxer in 5-minute audio drops, and listen in when they can.

Join our storytelling circle alongside other kind parents who get it and won’t judge you.
We must tell our stories of our lives, especially the parts that were unseen that we wish others had seen. Parenting is often isolating and invisible, much of it left out of cultural conversations. Parenting in a pandemic has forced millions of mothers and parents out of the workforce and onto the brink.
We are creating a conversation space and guided set of storytelling prompts for parents to come together and share what it’s been like to live through the past few years. You’ll get to meet fellow parents, tell your story in a small group, and hear from other parents.
Please note: we provide strong guidelines for safe conversations and have clear rules for participation, and we’ll review the community agreements before beginning. This is not therapy or counseling. If you have bigger stories that need professional support, please reach out to a trusted therapist.
