Save The Natural Child Project


"If all parents were to visit your site and read your thought-provoking articles,
this world would be a better place. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." - A.T.
The Natural Child Project is a labor of love
started by parenting counselor Jan Hunt
and her son Jason in 1996.
The Natural Child Project is celebrating 20 years online!

We are grateful for the opportunity to reach so many families, but to continue our work, we need your support.

The most effective way to create a more peaceful world is to focus on increasing the capacity for empathy within every child. For that reason, we are dedicated to helping parents treat their children with dignity, respect, understanding, and compassion.

We are asking our readers and supporters for a single or monthly donation. Any amount will help!

Our current goals include:
  • An upgrade to a modern, mobile-friendly website
  • More new articles and content for the site
  • A sequel to Jan's first book, The Natural Child
  • An audiobook of The Unschooling Unmanual
  • A new edition of Whatever Happened to Mother
  • A new book on standing up for children
  • A new book based on Dr. Elliott Barker's work
  • Teleclasses for parenting and unschooling support

Thank you so much
for your support! 

"Nothing is more important in the world today than the nurturing that children receive in the first three years of life, for it is in these earliest years that the capacities for trust, empathy, and affection originate." - Dr. Elliott Barker, The Critical Importance of Mothering
Thank you so much to all those who have helped us through the years!
