Parenting Cards
About the Parenting Cards
The Parenting Cards offer gentle suggestions for parenting with love and delight. Each of the one hundred small cards features a unique reminder about compassionate parenting, with a full-color logo on the opposite side.



The Parenting Cards were created by Jan Hunt, the director of The Natural Child Project, author of The Natural Child and A Gift for Baby, and co-editor of The Unschooling Unmanual. She also offers phone counseling on attachment parenting and unschooling.

Each set also has two blank cards you can fill in yourself. We would love to see your new statements for possible use in future editions of the cards! Send them to jan (at)
