You have done it again! You are a wizard, a genius and a child whisperer. In my 7 years of using your methods, I have never yet been disappointed! Thank you for doing what you do and sharing your gifts and talents with the world.

Seven years ago I was lost. I realized that I was, by default, parenting my nine kids the same crazy way my parents (mostly my mother) had raised me. (I assumed my mother was the expert and didn’t think much about my dad’s raising, even thought his was kinder and gentler.)

When the realization hit me I knew I would do anything to change things and turn them around. I had made slaves and enemies of my children and we were at war and they were winning because my conscience couldn’t let me keep going that direction. I had alienated my children with my methods.

As soon as I switched to your methods, I noticed the change. After the first few months of “the great release” of pent up sorrow, anger, frustration; there was calm and a joy that was never in our house before. That joy sold Elend on the efficacy of your method and we have never looked back.

Four years ago we had been using your method for 3 years and it seemed like we needed a little more. Our older kids were hurt and angry that we were’t so kind with them.

The family retreat was the best money I have ever spent on my children. The 5 intensive, emotional, joyous and liberating days gave me back my kids! and I will forever be grateful for you!!!

We have been using what we learned from you in all aspects of our life and it all gets better and better. Eli my 10th child has never known any different and I love that! All the children regularly quote you and your work and when things get too rough, request a session with you. I love that too!!! You are the best “Grandma” any kid could have! Thank you again for all you do!

Love and Gratitude Forever

Dear Naomi,

I have, since the birth of my boy, been firmly committed to fostering secure attachment and following the tenets of attachment parenting. Your book has spoken more deeply to me than most in the space of child care—the gentleness of your voice, the wisdom it carries, and the reverence it holds for the child—this, all of this, makes me return to your words.

Thank you. Your advice has been a gift.

Dharini Bhaskar, India

You are truly gifted in your line of work, Naomi (Not that you needed my opinion). I hope your work lives on in the hearts and minds of everyone you touch. I’m sharing your interview to my Facebook page.

With Love,
Catherine Weiss

Hi Naomi

Thank you for your insight. As always, I am a better father after your feedback. Sam is thriving. And so are River and Piper.

Jamie DeBonet


We absolutely loved the consultation, received so much from it and have been applying bits of what was discussed bits at a time. It also reminded Me to go re-read parts of your book. It has been about 3 years.

We will reach out to reschedule next month. We feel like about once every 4-6 weeks works for us at this time if that works for you.

Thank you!

Thank you, Naomi, for the video. It was very useful and interesting. I wish the society had the same values as yours. You are the great teacher on parenting and life management that’s why your videos and books are a gift to people. The pressure from other people is something huge on young moms and dads anf your support is very important. Thank you for that.

I purchased your book when my kids were little and it was good to find someone whose ideas make sense and me wanting and feeling the need to be such a parent, appreciated alot your book. Your book was a real help however there were not enough explication on how to do things, what exactly not to do and do what instead. So this free video is a great support and very useful for the readers of your book.

Thank you again.
Ina Stel

Love Naomi! About 9 years ago I participated in your workshop in the Montessori school in Augsburg, Germany and this day changed my life 🙂 Now 9 years later, I also want to coach mothers to raise their children with love and authenticity.

I love your book and now I started again reading it and I´m looking forward to be soon able to help other women 🙂 thank you very very much, you inspirated me so so much, I have two wonderful boys (7 and 10) and till today each day I spent with them was inspirated by your wise words. 🥰

Hello Naomi,

(Alice is Italian and does not speak English fluently):

It was a huge pleasure to have met you at the Zoom session! You are so reassuring and positive!!

I experimented the breastfeeding with Greta. So when as soon ad we finished the call she said to me: “what are you said Naomi?” and I told her the game of loosening the force in sucking in breastfeeding, so we did it and ask me if it was okay to suck so lightly, I said YES! and at the end of the feeding she exclaimed:


And that’s is what I say to you!

We have others issues to report to you and definitely we will do another session with you.

Best wishes,
Alice e Andrea

Hello Naomi,

I wanted to let you know that I am so grateful for all the wisdom and insights you’ve shared with me in our sessions. I am working hard to implement them in our lives. I already see that Aaron is slowly growing in confidence being around other people, including older children. It’s lovely to see these interactions with older children. I only hope more people find your teachings, because every child deserves it and the world needs it!

Thank you so much…

Best wishes,
Leonie Bleijenberg

Just finished interview #4 with parenting guide extraordinaire Naomi Aldort. Parents, if you need guidance at all, Naomi is your answer. Her approach to parenting honours your child like no other approach does, at least that I have seen. She will help transform your relationships within the home. Her excellent book “Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves” is a must for the bookshelf! Please check out her site:

I have huge concern around the lack of advocacy for our children in these times, and if ever there was an advocate for children, it is Naomi. Another one I can’t wait to release!

– Sascha Kalivoda

Dear Naomi,

Just to tell you something important, there is no day that I do not think about what you teach me! There is no day since I met you that I do not say I really like Naomi , she changed my life. Our relationship is much better, we both realise when we make errors and things that are not nice. I try not to make them, I am more patient with Digba and Melodi. ” I do not explode so quickly”.

I am really improving day by day and I keep reminding myself each day

Hope to get in touch with you soon for something , will see 🙂

for now you are very fine healer and I love you

– 49 year old father

Dear Naomi,

I am forever grateful to you for your presence in my life. Your simple act of introducing me to The Work and then introducing me to another mother who was one of your clients has rippled into the world in a most wonderful way. I wanted you to know what you have inspired me to do.

Before I knew you and before I started practicing The Work, seven years ago, my life was what I would call a hopeless rollercoaster; childbirth in my early 40’s, menopause, Attachment Parenting with no balance, arguments with my husband… I woke up each morning fearing I would not have the strength to make it happily through my day.

Then, I started seeing glimpses of light when I met you and started doing The Work with you. More and more peace would enter into a place where, before, would have created a conflict. I remember thinking, “What was happening?” It was so subtle, so much like I wasn’t trying to do anything better, it was just getting better, way better. My life was changing right before my eyes.

I will never forget our family intensive at your home in 2009. It started me out on a path, after which a momentum, a flow, a beautiful way of being started to build. And I attribute the quickness and the beauty to one primary factor: With your introduction of me to one of your clients who lived in my hometown, I had found a partner to do The Work with on a regular basis.

With Love,

– Catherine Weiss

Dear Naomi,

Again a million thanks for another eye opening session. I am amazed at how much parenting is not about the child but about the parent and it is so relieving to be able to see it and therefore take steps to change oneself for the benefit of everyone.

Thanks so much for helping me see and for helping me become not only a better mother but at a better person.

Lots of love to you and your incredible family and happy thanksgiving.

– Paula


I asked a question tonight about meeting the needs of my five children. Thanks you for the beautiful words. I feel calm and free for the first time in a very long time. I put so much pressure on myself to keep a clean home with three healthy cooked meals. I have been putting food and housr over my children. They do receive love and care, but now they will get more.

I had put so much that I learned from your book and dvd’s into my two older boys. Now I have gained perspective that will give my triplets and older boys more. I am eternally grateful.

One day I hope to save up for a phone session. You really have made a difference.

All the best to you,

– Kari Frazier, Seattle, WA

Hi Naomi,

We have to let you know how much your services have impacted our lives. I have experienced huge relief since our last session. I feel so much more connected to Stephen and Ainsley, and especially myself. By no means is everything perfect but I just feel like my brain is taking me hostage a little less. I am so committed to reprogramming things up there and embrace the long journey ahead of me. We just finished celebrating Thanksgiving with my extended family and both couldn’t stop thinking about how grateful we are for you and the work you do. It warms my heart to think of of you expanding the hearts of so many families across the world. As a long time political and social activist I think the work that you are doing will have one of the most profound impacts on our society.

Thank you,

– Heather

Dearest Naomi,

Maybe you won’t remember but I just wanted to let you know that since our conversation about a year ago ( on harming myself) your words have made the biggest impact and change in my life. You told me “instead of trying to release the pain in the harmful way I was ( which wasn’t releasing it) why not sit with it, why fight it when pain can be our greatest teacher)” since that conversation I have not harmed myself ever again but “sat” with the emotions and it has led me to writing song after song which I have been posting up on sound cloud which other people have also been benefitting from. I felt it was only fair to write and thank you and tell you about this as your words of wisdom helped to start the ball of composition rolling.

Many many thanks and much love

– Vashti

Hi Naomi,

I’ve been meaning to share this with you for a long time. As you know, we had problems with our child and accidents (peeing and pooping in the house). Together, we looked at a number of possible explanations. There was some improvement but the behavior continued.

Then we talked at the session about his diet. Although we’d never included refined sugar in his diet, he was having a lot of sugar in the form of raw honey and dried fruit. When I cut these out of his diet the accidents stopped completely. I didn’t make the connection at first. It came to me only when he had some unseasonal or dried fruit again and the accidents returned immediately.

Also, I noticed a significant change in his general behaviour. Sleep improved dramatically and, interestingly, there was also a substantial reduction in power play. Taonga no longer uses diapers, not even at night.

Thank you so much for helping us to bring about such an amazing shift.

with love

– Nicola


WOW! You rock my world last Friday.

Thank YOU.

Sending you blessings and love,
– Julie Deslandes

Dear Naomi,

Today, the day after our session, for the first time in many years, I feel in control of my day. The irony is that it is happening because I am showing Jonathan how he can take control of his day. We both are already experiencing new freedom.

We are releasing the grip we have had on each other, while getting closer and understanding ourselves and each other better. When I am clear about my needs, even if only implied by my behavior ( I don’t have to articulate it, just behave it), he feels free. Acknowledging my own rights does not take away from Jonathan’s rights. It gives him power to acknowledge himself.

Jonathan’s friend today has said some very inappropriate things directly to Jonathan. Instead of judging the friend, getting worked up about it, and getting very preachy about behavior, I simply used your rain metaphor (we cannot change reality) and showed Jonathan a way to walk away from the comment without fighting and without being offended. In the past the friend’s comment certainly could have done some damage. This time it was over as quickly as it started.

P.S. Your non-condemning way of helping me is the best way to help someone change. I feel you never judge me or my mistakes, and that is wonderfully liberating. Thank you.

With gratitude,
Victoria Kheler

Thanks for your words Naomi. It is such a gift to have them appear, always at the right time. i am in some really deep and amazing Work at the moment so it is particularly appreciated.

I had a lovely experience much like the one you recount. We have an amazing unschooled teenage boy in our life, who has been spending an afternoon a week with my 5 year old son since he was a baby. Early in knowing him, he was in our garden playing with Finn, and the neighbor children came over and were singing ‘stupid Caulder’ at him over and over. I came out and told them to stop in an agitated way. He looked at me so calmly and sweetly and said ‘it’s ok Caitlin, i already know I’m not stupid.’ and went back to playing with my son. it was profound for me and i will always remember it. When people judge me or insult me, and i start to react, I think of him and smile (and then do a sheet!). What you say is so true and beautiful.

I am so grateful for this work and all the other lovely folks who share in it.

I wish you a lovely island summer.
Caitlin Frost

Dear Naomi,

It’s been tremendously helpful and enlightening speaking with you. I am forever grateful and I look forward to speaking with you again.

Dear Naomi,

Second week after session: I am happy to say that our family has had the best week ever. Not a single moment of fear, conflict or aggression. We are laughing, playing, and just being together in peace. I feel I have a new freedom because I am being true to myself while empowering Jonathan to be true to his reality.

The transformation from frustration and anger to freedom and peace is largely because I am acknowledging my inner desires. This is hard for me because I spent a life time being loved for my musical skills and pleasing people with my performances (yes, I have read Alice Miller’s book. It’s all about me!). I am amazed that honoring my self brings freedom to the people I love, it does not take away from them!!

Learning to stand up for myself will make it much easier for me to stand up for Jonathan. And thank you for encouraging me to “Dare to be me.” I have amazing instincts, as all people do, but I have suppressed them, trying to do what is right in the other person’s view. Until now I have allowed other people to have rights over myself.

Until last session my own behavior has been very predictable (Jonathan and I disagree, I blow my top, we all cry). That was relatively easy to change. My challenge now is to bring this peace and self awareness to all aspects of my life. I’ll be talking with you soon, thank goodness!

I thank you from all my heart, Naomi. You are a beautiful person and the world needs you!!! I am so grateful for you in my life.

May you be richly blessed all ways,
Victoria Kheler

Dear Naomi,

I had to share this with you: Last week we were on holiday at the sea. Taonga (now almost 3) likes to climb in his car seat by himself but my husband, in his rush, picked him up and put him in his car seat. Taonga said: “I don’t want to be picked like the dead bird picked up in that net” (pointing to his little/toy beach fishing net). I don’t think Munkonge will do that again…Isn’t it beautiful when our young ones can communicate so eloquently how they feel?

All the best to you and thank you for enriching our lives

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 some of the games 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

Hello Naomi,

This email is overdue as my husband and I both expected to continue to need your mediation on a regular basis when we last spoke to you. So now I want to thank you and let you know we are doing much better as a married couple and as a family. Your sessions last year pulled us away from the edge of misery. It is as if we’ve been fitted with a pair corrective eye lenses and are seeing clearly for the first time, the year has not been without work mind you but their is a lot more forgiveness and a lot less judgment. We are both able to reflect at times of struggle and give each other the space needed to come back to peace. I feel we are partners now: friends to help each other. I didn’t feel this before. This is the gift you’ve given us and it is a blessing.

Things in our home life have changed completely as we’ve decided it will be a good time to switch roles. I have started back at work full time, while Sol has quit and is staying home full time to homeschool our girls. I am confident he will do a great job. I really love the analogy you told us about thinking of your spouse as a cat at times when they do not perform as you would like or do as you would do. I fully expect my husband to be like a cat at times in his new job but I also see that he will be even better than me at other times. Thank you for the lessons.

Sonya Feinberg

Hi Naomi,

We enjoyed our call with you tonight. We feel more strength and more peace. I feel I will be able to make some changes without condemning myself. Jonathan (6) especially felt great about having a chance to speak with you, and he is really thinking about what you said about making the world a better place. For many years Jonathan used to say, “when I’m forty, I am going to make the world a better place.” After speaking with you, I don’t think he wants to wait that long!

With heartfelt gratitude,
Victoria Kehler, NH


Thank you for coming and and sharing your life’s learning with me and my family.

I have learned so much from those five days together. While you were here and every day since, I am been more able to find and see that people are “right”. Everyone is always right. My children are right. My Dad is right. The rapist is right. I am right! This simply means that there is a reason for everything we do. The reason for our behavior isn’t good or bad, it just is.

This freedom from judgment gives me much peace and relief from pain guilt, anxiety and fear. Without judgement, I am free from conflict, conflict with self and others. As I face what would otherwise be a conflict with my children, my wife, my employees, myself and the world at large, just knowing that they, I, we are right removes much of the anxiety and enables me to be more objective. Further more, if I can identify how they, I, we are right, I am far more able to come up with an effective and mutually beneficial approach to any given situation.

Each one of us have different different experiences and prospectives associated with your time here. I will encourage others to communicate their experiences with you.

Elend LeBaron, LiquaDry

Dear Naomi,

In regards to the session I had with you about a month ago I changed the way I was ‘validating’ my daughter. I stopped adding the part that must have been upsetting her. It works amazingly. Also I am taking time to spend with her and our relationship has once again started to get closer.

Much love,
Vashti Samuel

Dear Naomi,

I just wanted to thank you for your wisdom and guidance regarding my Jan 31 phone session. One of the highlights of the session was a surprise one. My 8 year old son who has not slept in our “family bed” since he was about 2 years old because he chose not to or I thought he chose not to because he “obediently” went to bed in his own room as he was told and seemed very happy about it (at that time in my life I thought that children should sleep in their own beds at least most of the time). I would ask him now and then, when Dad was away at work, if he wanted to sleep with me and he always said no, he was fine. The main objective of my phone session was to get more detailed information on unschooling regarding reading, etc. I had no idea that our sleeping arrangements were an issue whatsoever. When you asked about our sleeping arrangements and then told me that you would have suggested six years ago not even having a bed available for him, I left the session with an uneasy feeling that because of his easy-going nature, perhaps he felt deep down that he had no choice in the matter. So, after the phone session, I shared with him everything we talked about and asked him if starting now he would like to sleep in our bed and he agreed. He now sleeps with us every night and I think he took on a new sense of security and peace in doing so. I feel that he subconsciously must have felt like he was being left out – Mom, Dad and little brother all together and him exiled to another room all alone. Now the thought of him being in his room all alone seems so wrong. Being 8 years old instead of him not needing us in that way, he probably needs our closeness even more because he no longer sits on our laps, gets as many hugs and as much physical contact as a younger child naturally receives. This was such an expected gift and eye opener as a result of the session and a strong reminder to really let my growing children, not just little children and babies, feel the love of their parents in a physical, affectionate way.

The other highlight was also somewhat of a surprise. I didn’t realize that I exposed my children to so much violence – I really thought they were immersed in a peaceful atmosphere until you pointed out that the books and movies we were embracing were not a good idea [Star Wars (okay it has the word war in it and I still didn’t get the message), Chronicles of Narnia series, Batman and Spiderman superheroes, etc.] Rather than focusing on battles between good guys and bad guys we will now seek goodness in all and avoid books that focus on good vs bad and look for gentleness and goodness in all. I then went through our own library in our home and found a treasure of wonderful books such as these. One excellent book we are now reading together that I would recommend is Abel’s Island by William Steig. It is a story of a mouse, Abelard, who gets swept away and stranded on an island while trying to rescue his wife’s scarf. Abel’s life of leisure that he was used to conceals a soul full of courage, determination, and acceptance of what he cannot change, once faced with the necessity of surviving. It is an excellent piece of literature filled with grace, warmth and insight. There is not one bad guy in it!

A father’s reflections on a recent family intensive with his wife’s Teresa’s emails, one in front and one at the end. They are now raising three of their combined children, two of which are both’s birth children. Candela is five and a half years old:
From Teresa:

Dear Naomi,

Life is back to normal and I have a new voice. Its like someone untied the rope that was keeping me suffocated. That one was me, and you made me see.

I haven’t felt this relaxed in years. And the best of all is seeing Candela having a good time!! Her “wanting” moments don’t last a second, and she is at peace. I was living in fear of my own daughter! What a tragedy! This is definitely a new beginning!

What a blessing to have had you with us! It was hard to see you go!

I’m here, waiting for Candela and Rio to have their riding lessons and loving it!

PD: I talked to my friend today, her boy is another Candela, she is looking forward to hear my experience. Yes, big Tsunami!

Lots of love to you from us.

Intensive review from Nick:

I came to the work of Naomi, via my partner, Teresa. if it were not for Teresa, I was about 6 reincarnations away from doing this work.

Given the above, I entered into “The Work” with a degree of trepidation and angst. To say the least I was not enamored with spending such a vast (for us) amount of money on a dubious/potential scam, intensive workshop. I am Australian and we have a heightened degree of skepticism, particularly of anything American!

Despite all of the above, our family was severely out of balance and in need of support to regain our equilibrium. Including previous relationships and blended families Teresa and I had raised 7children over 33 years. And here we were, in the final chapter of our parenting lives, struggling. Life ain’t fair!

Day 1

Without having done any background work, I was floundering. New phrases such as “Fear of the future is always a fantasy,” or, “the lesson you want for others Is the lesson for yourself” swam around my head. What the F…. does this all mean!

Naomi gave specific instructions (quite oppositional to our normal approach) on how to work with problems. The advice elicited some extreme emotions from our youngest, Candela. Although we were used to extreme emotions, we were not used to dealing with the problem without trying to fix it. Naomi’s advice was, there is nothing to fix! We went along for the ride!

Day 2

I awoke with dizziness, feeling nauseous. Part of the day’s lesson was…Be calm with your child. “Don’t drown with the child,” “Be the solution not part of the problem.” I wasn’t sure if my dizziness was part of this or not!Certainly the intensive was becoming intense!

Couple worksheets, exploring the issues that exist between us, between ourselves. Finding the criticisms I had toward Teresa, AND THEN, inverting them, making them foibles of myself. Damn infuriating, funny and enlightening, at once.

Toward the end of a torrid second day, a terrific meltdown occurred (one of many during the day) for our youngest when we did not acquiesce to her demands. And Teresa and I laughed! We actually laughed about it! Not in any cruel way (not at the child.) We laughed because we GOT IT. We saw so clearly how we had made this little child the Captain of the family ship. We realized how ok it was to let her just cry, because life doesn’t always go your way. And we were relaxed with it. PHEW, what relief.

Day 3

Our youngest awoke, vomiting. The intensive had become an exorcism! She recovered quickly, almost too quickly? (Did she realize it won’t stop the intensive?)

Teresa and I divided the day up and worked with Naomi individually.

Hard, grueling work for me, but I started to go with the tide rather than against it. With Naomi’s facilitation I dove into my past, seeing past, for the first time, the blame and anger I had for parts of my childhood. Searching into my parents own struggle as parents and why they may have done the things they did. Wonderfully, this allowed me to explore part of the puzzle in my own parenting patterns, now.

All this and we still had time for Naomi’s healing games. The games were an intrinsic part of our families work. The games gave a physicality and a playfulness for us to explore the issues and the dynamics within our tribe. Although the children may not have been able to articulate what was happening, they got it too.

Some personal insights from the day…….”don’t ask the kids what they want all the time.” “Its not always about them.” “We had addicted our children to wanting.” Bloody obvious, unless it isn’t.

Day 4

Naomi is a machine, she keeps herself and you going relentlessly. I had to escape at times to catch my emotional breath!


Through the lens of this work I can see where I fall over constantly. Better still, I have tools to work my way through it, without blame or regret. It will take work, intensely hard work, and thats up to me.

Parallel to all this, transformations were (and continue ) occurring for everyone. The patterns we had burdened the children with were showing signs of thawing .The patterns I had burdened myself with were melting away.

Somehow, somewhere, not sure when in the past, or how, I begun to dread certain interactions with my children. Thats not there now, WOW.

Day 5

Naomi worked us all the way, even as we drove her to the train and placed her in her carriage, she made us work. Guess what Naomi……… IT WAS WORTH EVERY CENT!


PS Weeks have now passed, we still have aftershocks from our old parenting patterns BUT our new world is transformed. Following is a taste of the gifts we are sharing:

In the past, meals in our home could be a war zone. During a recent evening meal Candela commented “I don’t usually eat these things or like them, but, I going to eat them all today.” Although I didn’t blink, inwardly I fell of my chair.

During the past years the ritual goodnight greeting from Candela has been “Poo Poo daddy.” The other night she wrapped her arms around me, hugged me tightly,and whispered, “Daddy i love you”. Without our fears and smothering patterns enveloping her, Candela is experiencing a beautiful, newfound freedom.

And another short email from Teresa (who is working on her summary):

Dear Naomi,

Missing you so much!!

Our life has changed so much after you! I am enjoying parenting!!! My days are peaceful inside myself!! Children are themselves and they have ME strong and calm, what an achievement!! Even I’m more loving and compassionate with Mick and Selva without reacting.

Would I ever stop thanking you???

I want to thank you both, Mick and Teresa for your courageous work and for sharing your hearts for the benefit of this growing community of parents world wide.

With gratitude and love,

Dear Naomi,

yesterday I read again in your book “Raising our children, raising ourselves”.

I’d like to thank you so much for it. It’s so honest, true. It helps me a lot. In realizing patterns, in recognizing relations and connections, in deciding for other ways, in forgiving myself, in growing, in raising myself!

A warm hug to you,

Hi Naomi,

Firstly I would like to say that I have read your book (many times) and as many of your articles as I could get my hands on and I cannot begin to put into words how inspiring your teachings are. Every sentence I read I find myself nodding my head and either saying “this is what I do, I thought I was all alone” or “I can’t believe how insightful this woman is!!!!”

I have read many many books, but I have to say your work is by far the best I have ever read.

Kind regards,
Kathryn Gordon


I want to share with you how much gratitude I have for you and the information in your book.
I have owned many copies over the years and have read them multiple times.

I see such a need for more parenting books and connections so I am pleased to hear you wrote a new book. This is such a touching topic for me.

I am a homeopath and sent my kids through Waldorf. I did not have a good upbringing. Honestly, I cannot imagine what my children’s experience with me as momma would have looked like if I had not been equipped with your book.

Whittni Grubaugh

Hi Naomi

Again, I can’t express my gratitude enough to you and your work. You are truly inspiring. I am reading your book for a fourth time and my husband and I can’t get enough of your CDs, hence why I’m ordering more.

If possible could you send me your article “freedom not license” as I’m really interested in unschooling and can’t find any of your articles on it. Thank you so much.

I think you are doing amazing work and if more people raised their children with your guidance I truly believe the world would be a much better place .

Kind regards,
Kathryn Gordon

Dear Naomi Aldort,

Thank you very much for your videos and book. And …sorry, my English is not good.

I am from Czech republic. For the first time I saw you on Mr. Jaroslav Dusek web session one year ago. I immediately bought your book and read in one breath. Since I learn and learn. I have three children in homechooling – 14, 11 and 3 years old. Our relations are better now. The Bible principles with your recommendations are in nice harmony.

Thank you very much.

Hi Naomi,

I really enjoyed reading your book and your newsletter; it helped be a lot to define what motherhood and kids needs we really about. As a result, I enjoy sharing my son’s life who’s learning at home. So, thank you again.

Now, I’d like to order bold beginnings. Shall I send you a check ? I live in newton, mass (shipping info).


Dearest Naomi,

I have read your book and love your newsletters, it always gives me so much light on my parenting journey (hence my own journey as well).

My husband and I would love to have a session with you to guide us on ways to supporting our daughter. We live in Melbourne Australia We are so eager to speak with you.

Thank you so much for all what you do already.

Much love xx
Mariana & Alex Suárez

Hello Naomi,

It was a pleasure having found your book as it reinforces my wife and my innate sense of raising our child and having faith in ourselves to continue. Thank-you for writing such inspirational messages to the world: you are rekindling a sense of knowing within many adults!!!

ln appreciation,

Hi Abby, (This is a response to listening to Abby’s interview of Naomi Aldort.)

I can’t say enough about Aldort’s book…it is excellent. I read it all. I am reading it again for the second time. In each page there are things you want to highlight…things that will open up your mind and you know they make sense because you can remember how it felt as a child….the book is like a perfect watermelon you want to savor it and when it is done you want to do it again…then you realize all the things you missed… So its flavor changes a bit and it becomes sweeter and more clear.

Good morning Naomi!

I wish to tell you that I am always pleased to loan my book Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves whenever someone ask me for a good parenting guide resource (as a psychologist and a mother of 4, I am often asked that question). I am not on Facebook or other social media but I am proud to spread your words and it is my way to do so.

You have (are) such a loving soul.

Thank you for sharing your heart and wisdom with the world.

Yes, we are changing our world!

Once again, thank you for speaking your heart loud and clear.

Much love,
Julie Deslandes

Hello Naomi,

i am currently reading your book. and want to say thank you, thank you, thank you. wow. you have such clarity and vision and heart in your writing. thank you for putting your lifetime of experiences and beliefs and passions out there for everyone to share in. it can be so easy to get lost in a philosophy or vision and not have the tangible skills to get somewhere. you have captured these skills so well. thank you for your countless examples and attention to detail that make this book so, so useful. i teach creative movement and conflict resolution and how our body can guide us through these same places and scenarios. it can be so hard for me to articulate action or purpose. and i think you do it so simply and beautifully.

hugs of gratitude,

Thank you so much for writing your book, I am benefiting from it both personally and professionally. I am already implementing S.A.L.V.E. with my grown daughters, and it is already helping us to heal the old hurt places in our relationship and is changing our old patterns of relating. I look forward to connecting again soon,

My Best,
Pam Leo, Author of Connection Parenting

Thank you Naomi! Thank you! I love your rough language. Someone has to speak clearly even if it arouses defensiveness at first. It often comes round to admission of shared anger, literally billions of adults have, for how they were raised. I think your paragraphs are far superior to mine for parenting and education. Thanks again! And please stay connected with me and my colleagues above.

My Best,
Brad Blanton, Author of Radical Honesty

Dear Naomi!

I just have to make this comment:

I read your conversation regarding Jesus, the bible and obedience. I love Jesus and am committed to him and you know I love you. Again and again I have found your teachings in the bible. I think that God raises us the way you teach us to raise our children! In fact we have talked in our bible study about your way of parenting and there is a few women in my church now who have and/or are reading your book. I just had to tell you this.

With love,

I’m currently reading your book Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves and it is remarkable. It’s contributing a lot to our family. Thank you!

Rebecca Cannon, LCSW

(from Germany) … I just finished to read your book Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves yesterday in the german edition “Von der Erziehung zur Einfühlung”. Thank you very much for this precious treasure!!! What you have written is so far away from what we have experienced, when we were children ourselves.

In my heart I always knew, what you have so clearly put down on paper. It sometimes makes me sad to see, what I have already missed.

I just had a look at your son’s webpage and it just brought tears to my eyes, because I could feel the love, that there is.

P.S. Please forgive my ‘broken English’.

P.P.S. I already got the first ‘Aldort Parenting Newsletter’. Amazing how much it activates and releases inside of me …I am deeply grateful for your encouragement.

Blessings to you and your loved ones,
Patrick Kreisberger, Germany

I am thinking of you as I continue to distribute your book to everybody I know. Your book is THE parenting book for the new consciousness – the new world we’re stepping into. I’m ordering a few more on Amazon this morning as they are going like little bread loafs….

Thank you so much for putting it out and helping craft a better world for our children! 🙂

Much love,
Annelene Decaux

My dear Naomi,

I just wanted to say thank you so much for such an amazing experience. It was pretty emotional day for me. Just by experiencing the ambience. It was awesome… I once cried once had goosebumps… Thank you so so so much… 🙂

In case I can be useful somehow, please let me know. If you need translator for private sessions or anything else. I am so grateful for every single minute we have spent together. Thanks for such an experience. It was great gift I got… And appreciate it so much…

With Love,
Silvia Kajanova (Prague, Czech Republic)

Dear Petra (workshop organizer),

Thank you for organizing this wonderful workshop. Though it was the basic one (which I have done before) I still got a LOT out of it!! I can’t even imagine what the advanced one will be like. 🙂

Looking forward to it.

Until Friday,
Christine Goyette (Germany)

Dear Naomi,

Here is, what one participant from Doksy’s three days workshop has written:

“…It was something we are going to benefit from for all our lives. Naomi is simply wonderful!…”

Petra Kutackova, (Czech Republic)

Dear Naomi,

I have just checked my email and facebook account. There are so many parents sharing positive experience being at your seminar yeasterday in Bratislava. I am really glad you have managed to come and share your wisdom:)

Thank you again for coming
Silvia Krizanova (Bratislava, Slovakia)

Dear Naomi,

I would like to say good-bye to you. I couldn’t come to your lecture in Prague Lucerna because I had to stay with my children.

Thank you very much for the interview, for Doksy workshop. I understand this thought of being at peace with reality deeper and I love learning to live this way.

It was very inspirational – the scene where the parents played themselves in the roles; beggar, dictator, king .. thanks to this mirror I see and I see the situation with children much better …) I am also very inspired by idea how much we focus on the outcome and how this obsession makes it impossible for us to enjoy life, the way of being, in which life is a journey not just the result.

Naomi, I open myself more and more and I simply would like to tell you that I love you and I enjoy it 🙂

With love
Jana Matasova (Prague)

Wow! Great info on the vaccines, Naomi! Keep up the information. Parents need all the support they can get to resist medical terrorism.


Hi Naomi,

I thoroughly enjoyed your article! I must say, of all the articles that have ever come to me, this one has struck a chord with most! I tend to be very defensive and since reading the article, have started pulling myself up on it! So thank you from the bottom of my heart!


Kristy Pillinger
Editor, Nurture Magazine, Australia

Dear Naomi,

I wanted to say THANK YOU for sharing all your wisdom and knowledge in parenting. I really enjoy learning your articles, I love that you take the time to really listen and reply to parents concerns. We are all so blessed to be in this life time with such an amazing woman and mother.


I love your writing and when I have kids I have your writing to fall back on. I cherish it.

Kyle Paterson

I just read your piece on releasing children from approval dependence in “ask the experts”. What a great piece! It spoke to me personally and I’m sure to many others as well.

I read your newsletters and am excited about all of your work!
