About Sharon And ACEKids
I've always had a knack with children and babies. I found out pretty early in my life that children want to be good, they love learning and also pushing boundaries. For this to happen in an orderly and predictable way, we as parents need to be setting the boundaries, communicating what they are to our children, in a way they understand, which allows them to know what to do.
Babies and children need clear guidelines as to what is expected of them, so that they don't feel out of control.
Every child will try to convince you that they want more than they are able to handle and we, as the elders, in turn, only allow our child to experience what they are ready for. Our child's primary learning comes from watching and observing how we do things.
Certainty and consistency are king when it comes to raising great kids. As parents we need to find that ability because if we don't, chaos and anarchy will reign and the natural order of the family gets lost.
I was lucky enough to be blessed with three wonderful children of my own. Although I was running a business throughout their childhood I found family life easy and fun as did the children.
Like many parents today, I was too busy to put up with bad behaviour so my solution to that was to nip any behaviours I found annoying right in the bud! It may seem strange but even though I work with children I do not have the patience of a saint.
When you consider what it takes to run any great team, you'll see a leader that has clear objectives and patterns of behaviour that allow the rest of the team to relax and trust that everything is ok. Having a great team leader encourages you to come on board because you are happy to be guided by them, they know what they are doing..
Becoming a nanny was a step toward sharing my parenting style with other parents while doing what I loved. It was the best decision I've ever made. It has enabled me to see the challenges most families are facing.
After 20 years in the fashion retail business I changed direction to do what Ive always loved. The joy I found in doing what I was born to do caused me to become a Life Coach. I really wanted to help other mums find their passion as I did.
The combination of being a nanny, seeing parents struggling, as well as a life coach, which is solution based, gave me the idea of creating a simple parenting model to help families get more joy from parenting. If there's one thing I know it's that once home life is sorted everything else becomes easier.
Some parents call my way with children "Shazzie Magic" and sometimes I even feel that there is a kind of magic involved. What I found is that if you do things in a certain way you will always get the same result and children today are begging for that certainty and leadership. When they have a firm, calm, strong, loving leader, positive change is often instant.
The Ace Parenting Model is my Shazzie Magic in a box. I 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 busy people who want to avoid all the unnecessary out of control nonsense that is viewed as normal these days.
No family is perfect and there is always going to be times when you feel that you could have done it differently. Still, having these time tested parenting skills means that you can get it right more often. When that happens you feel less inclined to feel guilty and you'll have the peace of mind that allows you to get in touch with your mothers intuition. The benefits are ongoing, resulting in you having more of life’s great things such as love and affection, connection, respect, time for yourself and so much more.
