Summary

“I’m emotional when triggered, not rational.”

“I get angrier than I ever thought I’d be.”

All parents want a definitive set of steps to prevent reactions without sacrificing the crucial rules and boundaries kids need to thrive. Most parents are looking for what I call a “mindful authority”. 

Each tip the author includes uses a situation from real life to share how to address the intense emotions of early childhood and school-age children so that your child becomes independent, respectful, responsible, and capable of succeeding in the world. 

You’ll also learn:

  • Two mistaken beliefs about misbehavior that cause you to think your child is disobeying you. You’ll learn what to do to remain calm and firm, instead
  • How to handle lies and allow your child to be honest and take responsibility for his actions
  • A unique and powerful way to create a respectful apology because no parent likes an insincere, “I’m sorry.”

What others say:

“Concepts are fine and good, but providing actual words, we can use-That’s pure parenting gold. I highly recommend Stop Reacting and Start Responding.” (Teri Cettina, contributing editor, Parenting magazine)

“Sharon really does seem to see the entire relationship between parent and child in our interactions in a way that most authors and experts don’t. I think my entire parenting experience would have been easier if I’d known about her work when my older one was younger.” (Moxie, AskMoxie.org)

“A glorious collection of parenting tips that moms can use to help them raise good and caring kids.” (Michele Borba, EdD, author of The Big Book of Parenting Solutions: 101 Answers to Your Everyday Challenges and Wildest Worries)

“It can be difficult to navigate the differing opinions of experts in this digital age, but Sharon simplifies developmental concepts and provides parents with actionable advice to raise healthy, ethical, competent kids in a flash.” (Dr. Lynne Kenney, PsyD, pediatric psychologist and author of The Family Coach Method)
