BIO: Sharon Silver
“Yelling creates the Illusion that you’re actually correcting misbehavior."
After a long day filled with power struggles, Sharon Silver’s light bulb moment came when she reached out to give her 3 yr. old son a hug and he pulled away from her assuming she was going to spank him. Crushed, she realized she’d turned her beautiful child’s trust in her into fear of her, and she never spanked again! Then it dawned on her—she had a problem. How was she supposed to make it clear that misbehavior, lack of cooperation, and disrespect was not okay?
This problem turned out to be a great gift; it forced her to become a parent educator and find ways to respond to her children instead of reacting to them. Audiences love Sharon’s practical do-able tips and ideas for responding, not reacting, to the daily issues that arise when parenting.
She is an educator, author, speaker, and blogger. She blends her 4 certifications in parenting with research-based early childhood development, introspective empowering philosophies, and 30 years of teaching practical parenting skills to help parents focus on raising kids using an authentic authority.
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. Her 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 been interviewed by Parenting magazine, CNN Health, and countless radio, newspapers and blogs.
