Biting in the early years is not different from other aggression. Some biting can be benign and transient. A frustrated toddler does not have a rich language and is likely to use her body to express herself. If you respond quickly to the first try quickly, clearly and kindly, there won't be a second time. If your daughter is repeating the biting, two things are happening: Your responses are not clear TO HER. And, the reason for her drive to bite has not been addressed.

There is much more biting in daycares and group settings than there is in children who spend their days with their parents. However, biting does occur, to a lesser degree, in youngesters at home.

A child is always innocently pursuing her needs. Whatever she does is rooted in a valid reason or has a specific and worthy purpose. She could be hungry, learning cause and effect, teething, imitating another child, frustrated. She could also be reacting to wheat, dairy, soy, sugar, food additives or other allergens. If your child is biting excessively or otherwise aggressive, check her for allergies through hair analysis or muscle testing, study the Feingold diet, and check to see if her life is too frustrating for her.

RAISING OUR CHILDREN, RAISING OURSELVES

 

Transforming Parent-Child Relationships from Reaction and Struggle to Freedom, Power and Joy


"Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves operates on the radical premise that neither child nor parent must dominate. Aldort offers specific suggestions for relinquishing control in favor of authenticity. Lots of help for those who want to give up scolding, threatening and punishing. Her SALVE "formula" alone is worth the price of the book."

Peggy O´Mara, Mothering Magazine

 

"...reading your book, It felt like I was 'remembering' something that deep down I knew all along but was clouded with years of being told differently. I'm sure in a few years when my children are a bit older they will want to thank you too :)"

Vanessa

 







See all translations of the book

 

Every parent would happily give up ever scolding, punishing or threatening if she only knew how to ensure that her toddler/child/teen would thrive and act responsibly without such painful measures. Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves is the answer to this universal wish. It is unlike any other book before it; no more nice and kind ways to control, but a way of being and of understanding your child so she/he can be the best of herself, not because she fears you because she wants to, of her own free will.

After years of assisting hundreds of families to bring peace and joy into their lives, Naomi Aldort now offers in this book a way of parenting that allows the child’s natural competence and caring to unfold. The book provides tools for understanding children’s behaviors so that you (the parent) are able to prevent difficulties and heal existing ones.

“I wonder what is this book
“I wonder what is this book, that my dad keeps reading every time he has a problem with me.”

 

Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves is filled with real life stories that demonstrate how events that would normally erupt into a great stressful upheaval can become heart warming experiences of caring and growing. Some stories will move you to tears, others to laughter, and the book will not cease to challenge every parenting assumption that stands in the way of unconditional love. It will leave you feeling relieved and free to celebrate every minute of this amazing journey with your child/ren.

 


"In this stunning insight into human nature, Naomi Aldort opens a window into harmonious family living. Simply and eloquently, she describes how parenting can be a truly marvelous path for evolving into one's own self-realization. Her work is rich with inspiration and insight for every parent who seeks greater awareness. "This book deserves to be widely read and not just by parents but by every being who strives for a more peaceful world. Dr. Aldort has distilled the essence of a peaceful world into what can only be described as poetry of the human heart."

Veronika Robinson
Editor of The Mother magazine, UK


"Every once in awhile, a writer comes along who is comfortable speaking the truth, no matter how much it might challenge us or make us uncomfortable. Naomi Aldort is one of those people. She has a clear-headed understanding of how to empower self-realization for both parents and children. And she communicates that understanding using equally lucid and, at the same time, passionate prose. "In Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves, she has given parents a vital tool to grow alongside their children. She takes the struggle out of parenting by demonstrating how to replace the controlling and shaping style of parenting with one that values, trusts and nurtures children's innate abilities and autonomy. Simply put, this book is about valuing our children for who they are, rather than for who we want them to be. For many of us, that is not as simple as it sounds, but with Aldort guiding us through our children's ages and stages, it is possible. And that, I believe, is the best gift we can give to both our children and ourselves."

Wendy Priesnitz
Editor of Life Learning magazine,
author of School Free and Challenging Assumptions in Education


"Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves is a great book that continues the work that I love. In a world that unceasingly violates our true natures, Naomi reminds us that we really can trust our children and our natural instinct to love them unconditionally. Not only that, she shows us how with clarity and consistency. Her formula for parenting truly is a SALVE for the soul in troubled times."

John Breeding, Ph.D.
Psychiatrist and Author of
The Wildest Colts Make the Best Horses


"Insight, resourcefulness, and wisdom are the real subjects of Naomi Aldort's book -- qualities vital to good (and joyous) parenting. The author is battle-tested in each of these areas and uses a wealth of personal experiences to guide you in finding a successful family formula of your own. Let Dr. Aldort hold your hand for a few hours. You won't regret it."

John Taylor Gatto
Author of Underground History of American Education


Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves is a book long overdue and should be on the must read list of all new Moms and Dads. This book could carry a subtitle: "Saving the Emotional Lifes of Our Children and The Future of Humanity." As Naomi states: "Love must be unconditional for a child to stay in integrity with his own authentic self."

James Prescott, Ph.D.
Institute of Humanistic Science

NATURAL YOUNG MUSICIAN

Nurturing Your child's musical talent With Aldort’s Acclaimed Natural Young Musician™ Program

Dear Naomi,
I just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you for the phone session Sunday on developing my daughter’s interest in music. Your tone and attitude were so reassuring, and I’m already really looking forward to the hours of fun we’ll have together. We’ve already tried the animals game already – it’s fantastic and I wonder why something similar didn’t occur to me earlier, but I often find that major discoveries seem just like that – almost too good to be true!
Thank you and best wishes,

– Helen Chang,Vienna, Austria

 

violoNaomi Aldort has been offering guidance for parents of musical children and all children for forty years. As a former piano and voice teacher (currently teaching select few students), Aldort has offered teachers’ workshops on developing musical freedom of expression in children. Two of her sons are professional musicians, one a pianist/composer living in Seattle and the other a cellist, member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

In a phone/Skype session, Naomi will share with you the games that will nurture and develop your child’s musical talent. Naomi’s approach leaves the child in charge, self-directed, self-initiating and, most importantly, loving music. A real piano at home is a must.

In the session you will learn to engage your child in music games, custom made for her/his natural inclinations and delight. These games will effortlessly and joyfully teach him/her all the basic musical skills, including: creative musical expression, musical improvisation, rhythms, notes reading, musical dynamics: forte, piano…, musical tempos: largo, adagio, allegro, presto… playing music by ear, singing while playing, solfège, ear training, learning to listen, how to attend concert joyfully, enjoying high quality (mostly classical) concerts and CDs, recognizing musical instruments, and mostly: loving music and feeling free to express oneself on musical instruments and in singing.

Your child will ask you to play these games again and again, or will play on her own with siblings and friends. You can start using these games with toddlers or with mature children and even adults. You do not need to be musically educated or skilled. You will learn with your child. It is wonderful for home-schooling but just as good with children who go to school.
