Sarah Moore, also known by Google as Sarah R. Moore (because it's an incredibly common name without the "R"), is a certified gentle parenting Master Trainer and, most importantly, a mama. Sarah is the author of Peaceful Discipline: Story Teaching, Brain Science & Better Behavior.
Her life's work is to support families to grow their peace, connection, and JOY together.
Although she strives for excellence in how she supports her students and clients around the world, she believes that sharing her own "real-ness" and vulnerability are essential in helping parents know it's okay to be human.
She models how we can learn from our mistakes, knowing that some of the most profound change happens in our parenting when we learn to be kind not only to our children, but also to ourselves.
