Happy New Year! Welcome 2012!

One of my goals this year is to stay in touch more regularly and to keep you updated about new content on my site – This year, I will continue to write at least one parenting or relationship advice column each month, as well as to produce monthly podcasts. My articles and podcasts can be read and listened to on my site as well as in magazines, newspapers and on other websites from coast to coast. 

The podcasts are also available through iTunes by searching for “helpmesara” or you can simply link to:

Some of the ten podcasts currently available include:
These can be linked to at:

They run from between 40 minutes to an hour and are complimentary! I’m sure you will agree that this is a great way to receive up to date information from me and at least one other expert on the subject we are discussing.

I will also continue to send you monthly updates about articles I have been quoted in, other media interviews and upcoming workshops or seminars.

I am very excited about two upcoming events:
  • One is quite imminent, My website will have gotten a slight facelift by the time I write to you next month. The changes will allow you to give me feedback and to see comments by others. A new tab called “Sara recommends” will allow me to share information about new and exciting products, books and events too. So, if you know of any, please let me know.
  • Secondly, my third book will be released by Simon and Schuster Canada in August 2012. Unlike my other two parenting books, this one is for couples. Stay tuned!
Until next time…

If you have ideas for future articles or podcasts, please don’t hesitate to contact me at
