What others say about the book

~ “In an era when we all feel confused about 'how to parent' our children, Parent Educator Sharon Silver, provides sensible, modern advice real parents can really use. It can be difficult to navigate the differing opinions of experts … [Sharon shows us that] time-out isn't the only option.” Dr. Lynne Kenney, Author of The Family Coaching Method
~ “Sharon is one of the sanest voices out there for parents." Maria Wood, mother of 1
~ “[the book] made a difference in my level of stress and communication with my spouse/kids. And I’ve seen a difference in the way my kids react to each other.” Tara Cook
~ “I not only treasure Sharon’s advice, but also her voice. She has a gentle, but very present way of communicating that lets the reader know that she can relate to what is happening, [she] empathizes, and at the same time is wise enough to hold [the reader] them and give [them] some grounding. Jillian Shapiro

Love me when I Least deserve it because that is when I most need it

I believe that parents know, deep inside of themselves, what to do and how they want to parent. The confusion begins when a parent is involved in a whirl wind of emotions. When parents are stressed their minds become flooded with emotions and they react. When parents respond their minds remain clear enough to activate the learning needed for the situation.

No parent has the emotional capacity, when involved in an emotional situation, to put the situation on pause while they read a chapter to search for a way to arrive at a calmer outcome.
This book is written in a way that makes that possible.

Stop Reacting and Start Responding™

  • Is a no-nonsense, reality-based book written in the "blog" style, using short, concise tips
  • Offers quick tips at the end of each topic to remind parents what to do when a parent and/or child is reacting
  • Tackles the emotions that are produced during the everyday situations that parents face
  • Explores a different way to look at situations, and shares a new perspective that ignites a parent's own wisdom, allowing them to resolve situations calmly, lovingly, and firmly
  • Allows parents to enjoy the read and then use it as a tool to remind and support them when they or their child are reacting.

A perfect example would be, when a child says, “No!” A lot of parenting information only address how to stop a child from saying “No!” Stop Reacting and Start Responding explores why a child might be saying “No!” and shows a parent how to acknowledge those emotions, while teaching the child what they should be doing instead. And does it all without punishment.
