About Us

Cindy Wang Brandt is a mother and progressive Christian writer who is on a mission to support the journeys of parents interested in Parenting Forward with progressive values. She's an author, blogger, community leader, coach, and live and online education provider for parents who are committed to raising their kids in a faith that isn't hierarchical, controlling and fundamentalist and want to see their children desire mercy and not sacrifice, to grow up walking in the ways of Jesus for peace, righteousness, and wholeness! The Parenting Forward podcast features interviews with authors and thought leaders from progressive faith spaces, monthly listener question shows, and practical strategies for parents, grandparents, and anyone who loves children and wants to commit to treating children with justice. We believe that if we change the way we parent, we can change the world!

EMasks have become a polarizing political symbol in our society this year. Opinions on them have changed and developed throughout the entirety of COVID-19, but they are still quite divisive. Depending on our backgrounds, experiences, and personal perspectives, we all view this tiny piece of cloth in a different way. That is why I wanted to have a conversation today with my friend and repeat guest, Kristina Wong.

The Science of Parenting with Amy and Jeff Olrick

EIt’s easy to forget that our kids are people too. They have just as much humanity as we do and yet we place so many limits on them. We have to understand that kids experience the same amount of stress we experience. They just lack the brain development to express it in a way we can understand. In today’s episode, we discuss all of this and more.

Stories from THE Rebel Girl w/ Francesca Cavallo

EIt’s so important that we put real-world events into accessible language for our children so they can form their own opinions on them. Too much of mainstream media either hides hard topics from kids altogether or translates them so thoroughly that they are no longer based on facts. Francesca Cavallo is a children’s author who is on a mission to transform this part of our culture.
