ProActive Parenting: Giveaway

When Lily turned one, all I heard from friends and family was, “Oh wait till she turns TWO!”  I dreaded the terrible twos.  Well, two came and went with no real trauma.  Three was just as good.  Nobody warned me about FOUR!

Lily has become sassy, defiant, and stubborn almost overnight.  I have tried several methods of correcting the problem, but I will admit that things have escalated to frustration and yelling.  Something needs to give!

Have you found yourself saying these things?

“Listen to me right now or you’re in timeout!”
“Go play or there’s no video!”
“Clean up these toys or I’m throwing them away!”

ProActive Parenting asks, “Do you ever feel like parenting is draining you?  Wouldn’t it be great if the kids did what you asked?”  If you answered YES to any of these, than this is the giveaway for you!  ProActive Parenting offers Seminars On-Demand covering a wide variety of behavior problems such as Correcting Preschoolers, Listening and Whining.

This program was built around the principle, “Stop Reacting- Start Responding” and was created by Sharon Silver.  From the website:

Sharon Silver is a mom, an educator, and a powerful speaker. Her sense of humor and teaching style make her easy to listen to and creates a trustworthy environment for learning. Her mission has always been to create programs that help parents focus on what else can be done instead of going straight to punishment. ProActive ParentingTM is the result of that mission.

If you would like an idea of what type of information is included in these Seminars, I recently published an article written by Sharon entitled, “ Tips to End Whining.”   Like what you read?  Want to learn more?  Fortunately, ProActive Parenting is giving away an Everyday Solutions Series subscription!  This set is valued at $149.95 and includes the complete set of 10 downloadable seminars.

    I know this is no consolation but it will get better – eventually! Lily is so much like her mom and I know Grandmama would say you were just like me. Love – Mom
