Have you ever wished there was a user manual for parenting? As a mom of three, I have often wondered how I can be a better parent to my kids. I am often tired from working more than what is considered full time, exhausted from the pressure of online social media content creating, developing recipes and cookbooks… and yet, when I come home from a long day, I want to be the best mom I can be.
My big desire is to raise children who are confident, have little insecurities about my love for them, and that they become loving and respectful people themselves.
Of course, that is in the "future," and to get there, I have a long road ahead of me. In today's show, I speak with Sharon Silver about the difficult world of parenting.
She is an educator, author, speaker, and blogger. She blends her five certifications in parenting with research-based early childhood development, introspective empowering philosophies, and 29 years of teaching practical parenting skills to help parents focus on raising kids, not just correcting behavior.
Sharon is the author of two books, Stop Reacting and Start Responding and Why is Yelling My Go-To Tool? and contributor to Parents Ask, Experts Answer. Silver’s books are unique in the parenting world because they include a child’s point of view, a crucial component for success.
As the founder of Proactive Parenting, based in San Francisco CA, Sharon has been an online radio and TV host, a weekly blogger for PopSugar, Circle of Moms and Life 360, a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Fox News, and she has been interviewed by Parenting magazine, CNN Health, as well as countless radio, newspapers and blogs.
You can check out Sharon’s books and resources on her Proactive Parenting website.
