Interview With Parenting Expert & Author Sharon Ballantine
Author of The Art of
1.What inspired you to write your book? After becoming a
master at what did not work in my parenting, coming full circle back to where I
remembered what did, made me realize that other parents need to know this
stuff. I wanted to share the details, processes and ways for parents to
have their ideal relationship with their kids!
2.What is it about? My book teaches parents the importance of tapping
into their own internal guidance system, then teaching their children how to
use their IGS to access their best choices and decisions. The book coaches parents
on finding and maintaining their alignment (feeling happy) so
they are able to parent effectively. Trusting one's own IGS and also trusting
your child's power to choose for themselves is what will enable a more
stress free relationship with your kids and empower them to know what is right
3.What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for
readers who finish your book? I hope that readers will know it is possible to
have a great relationship with their children and even their teens. That they
will make their own wellbeing a priority so they can be the kind of parent and
person they would like to be.
4.What advice do you have for writers? My advice for
writers is to trust that what they feel inspired to share is the perfect thing.
Never sit down to write when out of alignment. Nothing productive can come of
5.Where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?
think the book publishing industry is heading toward more self-published books
and more people utilizing all of the marketing venues available today.
6.What challenges did you have in writing your book? Getting to the
point where I knew I was I supposed to. As in meant to.
7.If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours?
book offers ways to get what you want.
