Imagine yourself having coffee, or dinner, with a couple of girlfriends discussing the not-so-fun moments of parenting that make you feel like a sh*tty parent. In today’s humor-filled podcast Laura talks to two TODAY show producers about the need for more humor in the toughest job on the planet: being a parent.
As a mom of 3, I’ve often wondered how I can be a better parent to my kids. I’m often tired from working more than what’s considered full time, exhausted from the pressure of online social media content creating, developing recipes and cookbooks…and yet, when I come home from a long day I want to be the best mom I can be.
My big desire is to raise children that are confident, have little insecurities about my love for them, and that they become loving and respectful people themselves.
Of course, that’s in the “future” and to get there, I have a long road ahead of me. In today’s show, I speak with Sharon Silver about the difficult world of parenting.
She is an educator, author, speaker, and blogger. She blends her 5 certifications in parenting with research-based early childhood development, introspective empowering philosophies, and 29 years of teaching practical parenting skills to help parents focus on raising kids, not just correcting behavior.
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. Silver’s 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, as well as countless radio, newspapers and blogs.
