Parenting with Kindness

Your Positive Change Mentor
for Parents, Families and Youth Athletes

About Me

Sharon Lundholm is a happy mom of two homeschooled teenage kids in Madison, WI.  Whether you homeschool or regular school, she firmly believes that a parent is always a teacher for their children.  And understanding both child development and learning styles are an essential part to being your child's teacher.


Sharon believes that everyone has a higher purpose and a

multi-faceted guiding influence that leads us on this journey of life and parenthood.  Sharon's higher purpose is positive and gentle parenting. 


We are not alone.  We all have a True Parent in us, and if we can quiet ourselves, even if just for the moments between wanting to yell and making the choice of yelling or not - we can bring forth this inner wisdom, compassion and patience.


Sharon has a gift of being able to find the essence of a situation and bring forth solutions.  With her innate wisdom, patience and compassion, she can help you find your True Parent as well.  For this is the biggest gift you can give your family. 


She will help mentor you to be a consistent and responsible parent, help you to let go of stuck situations, and much more.  But overall, Sharon will teach you to be a great role model for your children, one step at a time. 


Just like our little ones, you don't have to know how to run - to take the first step.


Sharon has her MA in Personal and Organizational Development and her BS in Psychology.  Sharon has been teaching and coaching families and individuals for over

10 years.

Sharon gained her sense of humor growing up in Northern Wisconsin and a solid belief in her intuition while living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Before starting her family, she worked as a Program Director and Counselor in the Mental Health non-profit world. Her profound belief in attachment parenting and positive parenting began in 1999 with the birth of her first son while living in Indiana. 


Sharon's personal mentors and coaches, along with her continued education, have helped her move out of stuck situations and detach from trying to control everything. This has improved her quality of life, allowing her to find the happiness and peace she strives for. 



She was the Coordinator of the Savannah Unlimited Homeschool Network - an active Inclusive homeschool group, increasing membership from 8 active families to over 50 in less than 4 years. She is also active in other local children-oriented groups.

Not now, Mommy's not feeling good . . .

(part 1)


Feel worn out? Tired? Got the cold or flu the kids brought home from their friends?


The day-in and day-out demands of a parent's life can leave a person feeling not their best, and then it's even harder to be a patient and loving role model and parent. Add onto that, lack of sleep, consuming extra caffeine and sugar for energy, hitting the fast food places and processed frozen dinners too many times a week, all leave our immune systems susceptible to whatever is going around at the time.


I have created this multi-part series on some natural helpers from Mother Nature, to help today's parents be the best they can be.

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.... It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events.

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

-Melodie Beattie

“Cleaning and scrubbing can wait for tomorrow,

For babies grow up, I’ve learned, to my sorrow.

So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust, go to sleep.

I’m rocking my baby, and babies don’t keep.”

(written after she found out she was dying from cancer).


I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.

I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.

I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.


I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.


I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.

I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.

I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.


I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn't show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist in a miracle.

When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, 'Later. Now go get washed up for dinner..'

There would have been more 'I love you's' More 'I'm sorry's.'

But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute.  Look at it and really see it . Live it and never give it back.  STOP SWEATING THE SMALL STUFF!!!
