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 counseling on attachment parenting and unschooling.

Guatemalan Pouches

Parenting Cards come with a colorful, hand-woven, zippered pouch from MayaWorks, a fair-trade company giving women in Guatemala a chance to earn a fair wage and bring hope to their family and village.

Please list any color preferences in the "special requests" box in the cart and we will do our best to match them. Available main colors are red, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
