The Art of Parenting
The Art of Parenting
Parenting has been one of the biggest JOYS of my life. I have three children and each of one of them is such a unique and wonderful human spirit. Through the years I've written on the subject, held parenting classes and have hosted many radio shows on the subject.
Parenting is a full time endeavor! One needs to be "ON" 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As I watch my daughter parent her child, I'm in awe of the patience it requires.... all the time!
So, if you are in the parenting stage of life, remember to be kind to yourself, and realize the beautiful service you are involved in.
LISTENING TO YOUR CHILDREN
Listening to a child is one of the most important things
you can do as a parent.
LISTENING, truly listening to your child, sends them a very important
message. That message is that ...
YOU ARE HERE FOR THEM!
THEIR WORDS MATTER!
THEIR FEELINGS MATTER!

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT SHARON
is a beautiful kind soul and an effective, nurturing, creatively aware teacher for my daughter Angelina!! I highly recommend her piano teaching and art classes because my daughter has been growing and expanding in her heart, mind and skills from both.
Sharon is patient, kind, loving and creates a very nurturing environment that is palpable whether in person or during online lessons. My daughter looks forward to all her moments with Sharon.
Sharon is a stellar human being and we are happy she's a part of our lives!
Sharon was one of our very finest teachers. She made a genuine difference at our school with her unselfishness and caring ways as well as her exceptional teaching ability.
Pinecrest School Thousand Oaks,
Sharon is a sincerely honest and open person
in her relationships, with a special gift for handling and leading children. As Director of the Junior Church she brought creative ideas and enlightening activities to all her students.
Rev. Betty S. Strohm
Sharon has a wonderful way of mixing her presentation to include discussion, sharing, individual exercises and lecture which keeps the class upbeat, personal, educational and interesting.
As a parent with experience as a parent educator it has been valuable to re-visit known concepts, to learn new perspectives, and to take the time to re-focus on my own parenting.
Sharon's gentle voice and accepting manner keep all the members of the class comfortable sharing personal issues and eager to ask questions.
