Our 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. Each card is 3.5" x 1". Each set includes all 100 cards, a hand-woven Guate­malan pouch, and an information sheet.

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

Each set of cards comes with a hand-woven Guatemalan pouch from Maya­Works, a fair-trade company.
