About Sharon and ACEKids
Parenting has become so complicated and difficult for many families so if you are struggling you are not alone. Most of the difficulties come from one or two parenting skills that have eluded most mums and dads. With honourable intentions many families have been caught up in the times of wanting to give their children every opportunity to have what they want.
This isn’t working because in life what we want and what we need can often be conflicting especially in the life of a small child. It's simple really, babies and children need clear guidelines to know what we need them to do so that we can live with them with as little conflict as possible. These guidelines and boundaries help children to know what is expected of them, so that they don't feel out of control so much of the time and its never too late to turn things around.
A family is a small team of people trying to achieve a good life together and for any team, whether it be an organisation, a band, a tribe or a country there needs to be leaders. If this team is to operate successfully, the team leader needs to be respected and in the case of family also loved.
If your child is hitting you and yelling at you then its time to wake up and smell the roses. I’m hoping thats why you are searching for help - because you are ready to be the parent your child needs.
A child’s primary learning comes from watching and observing how we do things not by being allowed to do things when they want to. Having a great team leader encourages the children to come on board, happy to be guided, because they know you know what you are doing. Your children need you to be that leader.
Sixteen years ago becoming a nanny and a coach was how I began sharing my parenting style with other parents while doing what I loved. It was the best decision I've ever made for many reasons and it has also enabled me to see all the challenges most families are facing today.
I soon realised that struggling families were experiencing the same issues only in differing degrees. This realisation allowed me to create a simple parenting model to help families get more joy from parenting, their relationship and in turn from friendships, work and life in general. If there's one thing I know it's that once home life is sorted and more importantly enjoyable, everything else just becomes easier.
Some parents call my way with children "Mary Poppins" or "Shazzie Magic" and sometimes I even feel that there is a kind of magic involved because of how quickly the children ‘get it’ and improve their behaviour. I especially love watching mums and dads get their 'aha' moment when they try out their new skills.
My passion is to support parents and children in finding out how to really enjoy this very precious time in their lives. I want this for you too, because parenting is too important to get it wrong. Acquiring some skills to make the most momentous job you will ever have, easier and more enjoyable is a smart decision for all parents.
I have many programs, workshops, videos and free tips for you to begin getting yourself ready to start. Children who are raised to be conscious, who've learnt patience and respect don’t resort to all the unnecessary out of control nonsense that is viewed as normal these days.
The benefits of having self aware children are ongoing, resulting in you and the whole family having more of life’s great things such as love and affection, connection, respect and time for yourself.
Remember that every day you are creating childhood memories that your children can draw on for life, make them the ones you’ll feel good about!
