Um dem Schmerz der Zurückweisung zu entgehen, lernt das Aurum-Kind, stets sein Bestes zu geben.
Usually prefers religious and symphonic music
[Luc de Schepper]
As with the Nat-c. child, the Aurum child loves to listen to classical music. Fast rock-and-roll music (Tarentula child), organ music, not music played by a single instrument.
This classical music resonates with the seriousness of this child, often withdrawn on his own, and it brings a calming effect, putting him to sleep
[Dr. Sunirmal Sarkar]
Schlechter Atem bei Mädchen in der Pubertät
[Dr Elizabeth Wright Hubbard/Presented by Sylvain Cazalet]
Boys with undescended testicles often respond to Aurum if the background suggests it.
‡ Child has too little exposure to the father. ‡
Aurum children are usually more adult than their friends and choose their friends very carefully. In fact, usually they have few friends, and are often busy by themselves, wanting to be left alone but bullied in school. The Aurum child is very intellectual, precocious, and too serious for his own good. The reaction of the outside world to a
joyous child is joyous; the reaction to a serious child is serious, and Aurum does perceive the difference;
[Dr. Douglas Borland]
The typical Aurum child is always an undeveloped child. It is not so much a question of undersize and underweight as that it simply does not grow up. The Aurum child of
5 years is probably about the level of a 3-year old. The majority of cases needing AURUM are boys, and in the majority of these cases there has been some failure of development. It is the type of symptom for which one might consider Bar-c. These children always give the impression of being lifeless.
