We help families rediscover laughter

Empowerment Parenting helps parents replace traditional parenting techniques with strategies that work in today’s world.

New techniques for a new generation

This is not your grandmother’s or your mother’s world.

Let’s face it. We don’t live like people did 20, 30, or 50 years ago. We don’t go to school the same way. And we certainly don’t communicate the same way.

Truthfully, we haven’t for years. But after the pandemic, our lives are in many ways unrecognizable from even 2015.

So why would we parent using strategies that we learned from our parents?

Just because it’s how we grew up doesn’t mean the strategies our parents used are right for our kids. It’s possible to find a path that works for your life…and that’s where we come in.

Empowerment Parenting is on a mission to help every family laugh more and yell less

You’ll hear us talking a lot about more laughing and less yelling. That’s because it’s what every family we talk to desperately wants.

And while, yes, we absolutely want to heal the child, it’s just as important to heal the whole family.

That’s where our focus is different. We focus on helping the adults (that’s you!) become more emotionally healthy so you can model the behaviors you want to see in your kids.

Meet Our Founder, Sarah Salisott

A trauma-focused parent coach and author, Sarah is dedicated to helping parents connect with their children and increase peace in their homes. Named a Most Valuable Protégé by the Packers Mentor-Protégé Program and one of the top 10 LGBT+ Entrepreneurs to know, Sarah has appeared on multiple tv shows and podcasts, sharing her unique approach to parent coaching.

 

The results are wonderful!

“Sarah definitely knows what she’s doing, talking about and she has no judgment. It’s very easy to talk to her, and her advice is evidence-based! I’m so happy I had met Sarah and was lucky to have her help my family! The results are wonderful!”

The Empowerment Parenting Story

Sarah founded this company, originally called The Foster Lane, out of personal need. None of the “traditional” parenting strategies worked for her children with extreme needs and behaviors. Tired of seeing them struggle at home and in school, and at her wit’s end, she knew there had to be a better way.

Sarah dove headfirst into research around trauma-informed parenting, interpersonal neurobiology, parenting strategies, and parent-child relationships.

That research has created peace in her home, so she set out to help as many other families as possible. Today, Empowerment Parenting by The Foster Lane hosts workshops and offers coaching services in multiple languages. And our work is just beginning. 

 

Sarah is an insightful parent coach who opened key insights for my parenting toolbox.

“I cannot recommend Sarah enough. She is an insightful parent coach who deeply cares about clients and their families. Her flexible approach really meets you where you are at. Any parent who is working through difficulties with their children knows there are good weeks and tough weeks, and she works through them all. She helped open key insights that have improved my parenting toolbox, allowing me to better meet the needs of my family.”
