Jonas – a father of three children – is well-known on the international stage for his strong advocacy for parents in the raising of their children. His ability to articulate these concerns has resulted in high level involvement in European conferences as well as a presentation to the United Nations. His views led him to Dr. Neufeld in 2007 and he has been working for the Neufeld Institute ever since. He is an author himself and well-known for his evidence-based critique of the social utopian approach that involves the state taking over from the family in the care and education of children. Jonas teaches Neufeld courses to parents and educators and arranges Dr. Neufeld’s speaking engagements in the Scandinavian countries.
