I have a young child who tends to get very aggressive when trying to tell me that his needs aren't being met. Until recently, he never listened to anything I asked of him. I was at my wits end. I'd tried everything. Things only got worse.

Then I found the answer that unlocked the mystery behind my child's behavior in Aldort's book, "Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves." It changed my relationship with my son the day I started following her recommendations. As I learned from the book (verified by my experience) it won't do any good to punish a child's behavior; it fact, it will only make it worse. There's an underlying reason for his behavior, and until I address it in an understanding and kind way, it will continue. Now I understand why he was acting the way he was and, more importantly, how I was causing it without even knowing it. Once I understood him, I could concentrate on solving the larger problem rather than correcting (punishing) the behavior.

Ever since I changed the way I interact with and speak to my child (according to Aldort's recommendations), my relationship with him has been transformed and, no surprise, he hasn't been aggressive at all. The book has given me tools of love and connection in all areas of parenting. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Buy one for yourself and one for all of your friends.

When I read this book for the first time, I was pregnant and looking for guidance on how to turn a page in my life, ending the cycle of psychological abuse and scarcity that I had experienced. This was something I always knew I had to do; even as a child myself, I knew I needed to be different for my own, but had no idea how to do that, or what to do instead. I gained much insight into why I am the way I am from reading this wonderful book; it is like a mirror image of my childhood (like a "what to do instead of what was done to me" manual), and I am a poster-child, so to speak, that stands as proof of what Naomi claims will be the results of the kind of parenting she advocates against. I have and continue to live with the pain of this upbringing every day.
I want to thank Naomi for the clarity that her book has provided me. As much as it breaks my heart to read about what I have always known I needed and didn't receive, it has spelled out exactly what that was (that was missing) and how to provide it for my own children.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be the best parent they can be. Whether you enjoyed your own childhood or not, this book has something to offer anyone who wants to be even better or who is starting from a place of pain and anger and doesn't know where to begin.

Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves is unlike other parenting books and much more effective. I have read good advice before, but couldn't change my habits. This book gives the tools of personal growth that make it possible to be the loving mother that I really want to be. This is not esoteric philosophizing; it is useful advice with a five-step approach that is eminently doable. Each step is illustrated with story after story about parents who discover, or rediscover, the power of love as they replace controlling parenting techniques with gentle nurturing.

In applying Ms. Aldort?s suggestions myself, I have found that my listening and communication skills are improving and I am definitely more mindful, more empathetic, and more flexible as a parent. Happily, my children have noticed this change and, even more happily, have emulated it in their relationships with each other, with their father, with me, and with friends. A little positive parenting goes a long way!!

Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves is a must-read, must-have book for parents who are trying to break a personal or cultural cycle of authoritarianism and start becoming the mothers and fathers they wish to be.

There was a time when people thought the earth was flat...this theory no longer applies. There was a time when struggling with children was the norm. This theory also no longer applies. Naomi's book is a challenge to old thinking and old theories that just don't fit when love and compassion are present.

I laughed and cried and healed as a result of reading this book and I recommend it to all parents. It is truly about changing your mind and simply finding that when love comes straight from the heart, children flourish as a result.

The book is filled with user-friendly ideas and strategies that relate to real life situations of children of all ages. Get this book you will be so happy

you did!

This book is not about how to train your child to do something. You learn to trust and let go, and let your child be free. When you give this a real chance, you will never need another parenting book in your life. Everything is in here, but it takes a real commitment to your self and your child to understand it all. Please read it and try it, this approach to life is what we need for peace on earth.

Before I read Naomi's book, I was stumbling along, struggling to maintain my sanity while raising my three kids. I knew of her writing from Life Learning(now Natural Life) and Mothering magazines and had always been intrigued by her ideas. She is not one who relies on tricks or other ways of controlling children, but rather of responding compassionately to children's real needs. The most value I have gained from her book is in learning that so much of what was going wrong in my house was due to my responses and had nothing to do with my kids. They were and are innocent. Hence her title, Raising our Children, Raising ourselves. I have learned so much about myself and grown as a parent thanks to Naomi. We can create a peaceful world, starting with creating a peaceful home by reading and following Naomi's ideas.
