yelling and punishing?

Welcome to Proactive Parenting,

reactive corrections to responsive directions
so you can transform behavior into learning moments. 


30 Examples to Reframe Choices.

Why does it matter?

Your parenting began with enormous love and a gentleness that bonded you and your child for life–and nothing has been the same since.

Now, despite that bond, you’ve started reacting more often than you thought. As a result, things challenge, frustrate, and trigger you and you’re emotionally exhausted.

The secret solution is to shift how you teach your child about their behavior. Then you can communicate, empower and teach without damaging your child’s spirit, or losing your temper!

No child likes hearing “eat your veggies.”
No parent appreciates someone telling them what to do.

Fortunately, you’re the expert on your child.

You know what works with your child and what doesn’t.
I don’t because I’ve never met you!  But that doesn’t mean you’re alone.

What does that mean?

Our job as parents is to guide and help our kids
translate life’s experiences.

Our job is not to prevent or control those
experiences.

Our job is to help our kids gain wisdom about
themselves and the world around them, while we
empower their potential and purpose as life continues to push them to grow. Shifting this one perspective about parenting naturally moves the mind toward responding.

How we help

You know your child’s temperament, habits, likes,
and dislikes.

We know how to blend gentle and authoritative methods to understand what’s motivating behavior so your child feels seen and heard as corrections are made.

Our Solutions Playbooks offer strategies and methods that allow you to use what you know about your kids and family to decide whether or not the entire process, or a portion of the process, will work for you, your child, and the situation.

The log-jam of non-action

Without an actionable plan, it’s easy to fall into non-action and repeat the same reactive methods again and again, hoping for a different result. We all know what Einstein said about that, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Albert Einstein

Read the blog, the book, book a coaching session, or purchase a mini-course because I am confident that you will, at long last, find the parenting strategies you’ve been looking for so you can respond instead of reacting.

Hi, I’m Sharon

I’m guessing someone you know and trust mentioned my name, or you saw me online. However you found me, I am glad you’re here. This site has the transformational parenting ideas you’ve been looking for.

I am not a parent whisperer; although I’ve been called that, I don’t have all the answers. I’m human; I’ve raised kids, I react and have shitty days, just like all of you.

What I bring to the party is 30 years of parenting wisdom, developmental knowledge, and the methodology to create gentle-authoritative, responsive, mindful, and empathetic solutions, plus the experience of helping parents from over 93 countries.

You might have seen me on.
