It’s more than knowing which methods to use—

It’s a feeling.

Do you ever feel
  • emotionally worn out,
  • fed up with no time for yourself.
  • exhausted by what feels like a constant need to remind, correct, argue, negotiate, and punish?

Those feelings can all lead to yelling and reacting.

Do you ever feel
  • emotionally worn out,
  • fed up with no time for yourself.
  • exhausted by what feels like a constant need to remind, correct, argue, negotiate, and punish?

Those feelings can all lead
to yelling and reacting.

I hear you! I understand!

Watch my story to see what I experienced as a child and as a parent.

My Goal is to help parents return to the feeling that occurs when you Transform Behavior into Learning Moments.

  • Changing your perspective about behavior and teaching life skills demonstrates empathy and mindful-teaching-actions.
  • No-Yelling methods teach your kids about the needs of others and allow you to build in self-care time as part of that lesson.
  • No-Yelling Methods require your child to do most of the thinking which creates far more learning and less arguing, yelling, negotiating and punishing. 

Our products, mini-courses, and book Transform Behavior into Learning Moments by

  • showing the subtle characteristics between responding and reacting,
  • providing sample conversations that systemize the framework to get you started 
  • familiarizing parents with important rarely-known developmental aspects that masquerade as behavior and more.

You’ve heard the phrase “the answers live inside of you” well, that’s true for parenting too. You just need someone with fresh eyes to help uncover the underlying motivation for both you and your child. Coaching does just that.

How others feel

Dr. Shefali and Sharon Silver

Sharon and Dr. Shefali talking 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

“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

“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

“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

“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’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

“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.”
