African-American parents frustrated and trying to correct behavior of two preschoolers while out on a walk.

You’ve chosen to parent mindfully, empathetically,
and remain connected as you correct behavior,
but triggers keep causing you to yell and punish.

You don’t realized you’re yelling until
you hear
 the intensity of you request to “do-it-right-now!”

You’ve read the expert advice,
“To become the calm, empathetic, firm authority
you know your child needs. “just remain calm.”

However, when you’re interrupted,
whined at,
 or argued with,
remaining calm is
 much more complicated than it appears.

Why Parents Love
Proactive Parenting

Why Parents Love Proactive Parenting

“This has triggered a wonderful inner transformation for me on many levels. Big light-bulb for me is that we are here to TEACH, not reprimand with time-outs they don’t understand. I see every moment as a teaching opportunity because of you!” Renee Taylor

“Sharon really does seem to see the entire relationship between parent and child in our interactions in a way that most authors and experts don’t. I think my entire parenting experience would have been easier if I had known about her work when my older one was younger.” Moxie, Askmoxie.com

“A glorious collection of parenting tips that moms can instantly use to help them raise good and caring kids.” Michele Borba, Ed.D,

“I’ve seen sites like this before… they look like they offer great stuff, but give fluff or BS. I’m amazed at the immediate results with my child and myself. I’m in control… I don’t get emotional or upset. I now use situations as teachable moments, and my child totally responds.” Erin from Oregon

“I can’t recommend Sharon and Proactive Parenting enough; nobody is talking about this stuff. Her insights are both practical and make so much sense. Thanks you! Sonja Limone

“I’ve been led to thousands of websites, read hundreds of blogs, and books. I have scrounged bits and pieces of useful advice, but the majority was dead end information that was not pertinent. Your website was different … it was the way you worded things. You were like a fresh, crisp, cool drink of water during an often-exhausting marathon of seeking advice.” Amy Vance

“It’s really refreshing to get helpful tips that start with the change within us first. I find your insight really helpful and exactly what I am looking for.” Lani Wharton

“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
