Sharon helped me slow down and smell the roses of motherhood. Spending quality time with my girls helped decrease my stress level and made their behavior a whole lot better.

 

Parenting is the most important job you can do and the most important mark you can make...Sharon helps keep that message on the front burner with all of the other responsibilities that I face with balancing work and home. It's nice to have someone keep you in check with what is really important.

 

Most of all, Sharon is a real mother, with real experience and down to earth stories that make the learnings come to life. She is 100% there for you and....shouldn't somebody be 100% there for us moms? Sharon is a true blessing. Her personality, her empathy, her compassion, her stories, her advise, her home practice...awaken the best mother in me while I learn how to make it last.

 

Thank you Sharon for sharing your gift with me and other mothers. This is where it is at!

I have taken several classes offered by Sharon, and she has always been helpful, knowledgeable, and resourceful.  She has coached me in several areas of my life, and my life has been better for it.  I highly recommend her classes and coaching.

I am so thrilled to have come to know Sharon.  When I begin to be critical of myself and my parenting style, Sharon reminds me of the areas that I am doing a great job.   She offers me just the support I need to meet some of my family's needs that I wouldn't have considered without her coaching.  I am a better parent and person for having met Sharon and spent time learning with her!

I just love Sharon's coaching style.  Compassionate and oh so very knowledgeable!!  She really has helped me stay accountable to myself and therefore be more consistant as a parent.  And the kids really respond to the positive discipline so much better . . . they are learning lessons and not just going through the motions!  Just like me! 

 

Sharon is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her!!

I really needed a confidence boost and Sharon really helped me feel secure and stable in knowing that I know my child best.  I am much more able to listen to my inner parent and act with compassion and love.  I am more gentle and positive with my child.  By using Sharon's suggested positive discipline I am getting the outcomes I desire without yelling or being frustrated, and even better yet, neither is my child!!

Sharon is an inspiration to me.  Her style of parenting makes so much sense.  Her mentoring has helped me to be the parent I want to be.  I'm still growing, but I'm so much closer to where I want to be now that Sharon has been guiding me.  Thank you Sharon!!

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

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

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.”

IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER - by Erma Bombeck

(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!!!
