Do You Say?"
"I feel very fortunate to have found Jan. Right from the
start, she validated my concerns and shared personal experiences
from her own parenting journey that helped me feel less alone and
more supported. Jan has a peaceful way about her, and I leave our
conversations with a sense of gentle empowerment. She has helped me
to understand that my intuitive feelings were not wrong, as I have
been told by so many around me. Jan also follows up via email with
additional suggestions and resources that further enhance the topics
There are really no words to describe how much better I feel
about mothering my daughter after consulting with Jan, but our daily
smiles and laughter are very telling." - K.B.
"Jan is truly wonderful. She is just how she instructs us to
be with our children - present, attentive and understanding. She was
prepared and able to quickly process our situation and she
confidently and directly provided excellent feedback and suggestions
without judgment. I highly recommend not only Jan but her website
and many resources that she makes available. I am so thankful that I
found the site and Jan." - C. Harris
"I cannot thank you enough for what you do. Talking to you
helped me and my family so much. Your suggestions and information
were so helpful. I feel much better overall and so much more
confident about unschooling with our two boys. I am sure I will be
contacting you in the future. My husband and I continue to reread
your book The Natural Child." - V.B.
"I am doing so much better since we talked and I read
all the material you suggested. I'm sure you know you touch a whole
lot of lives, but I wanted to let you know you touched mine and thus
have touched my son's. Thank you from the bottom of my
heart." - J.R.
"I've received advice from Jan three times, and each
time came away feeling re-energized in my commitment to the natural,
attachment parenting philosophy. Thanks for offering such a valuable
service!" - C.P.
"Jan is a most diligent, energetic, and well-informed person
with regard to children's issues. Moreover, she can communicate her
ideas in an engaging fashion that does not put parents off."
Dr. Elliott Barker,
Director, Canadian Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Children
"Families are lucky to have available to them someone so
sensitive and knowledgeable about early parenting issues. She is a
caring person you can trust and one who will respect the preferences
of your own individual family."
Editor & Publisher, Mothering Magazine
"Jan has so much to say and to give and so many need her
knowledge desperately. Parents rarely find the essential, precious
information she could give them."
