I am a single mom attachment parenting and home-schooling a child with Autism. API has been my lifeline for nearly 8 years!

I am grateful for API! I had not been around children much before my son was born 6 years ago. I was bombarded with people wanting to help guide me along as a new mother. I was given books about how to teach your child to cry it out and other parenting techniques. I tried a few and ended up having to give my child what I wished I had been given when I was growing up. I am blessed to find a program that supports the connection that children need. When I would question my self, I could always come to API for validation and information. Thank you to all who support this incredible awareness! Lisa

I'm a parenting coach and I often send my clients to API as they have a plethora of resources especially for new parents. I only wish API had been around when my children were small. I would have learned to trust my intuition more and not given away so much of my power to the "parenting expert" du jour.

I recently participated in the Attached at the Heart Educators' Training and will be teaching the AATH curriculum hopefully soon.

Attachment Parenting International is responsible for my own empowerment as a father, It was through AP that I managed to find myself as an attached father and to nurture strong and secure attachment with my son. I couldn't be any more grateful than I am right now.

API has been a wonderful source of support in my parenting journey. It is a non judge mental truly caring venue to get advice on topics such as cosleeping, extended nursing, positive discipline, etc. I am constantly finding myself reaching out to this group when I have a question about something my children are doing and I need help with. I could not imagine what it would have been like if I had not found this group 3 years ago!

My experience with API is that it has been a wonderful source of support and inspiration to me since I began my parenting journey almost 10 years ago. The leaders of our group have been nothing but inviting and warm and provide great resources with science-backed information. I trust the board members, and know that this non-profit is sincere and legit, paving the way for gentler, more informed parenting.

I have been involved with API for many years. My local group was an invaluable source of support when I was a new mom, as I learned to follow my instincts and parent in a connected and compassionate way. When I saw how much the group was needed in our community, I became an API support group leader, and eventually started volunteering with the international organization as well. API serves an absolutely vital role in parent education and support, and has done so much good not only in my small community, but worldwide. I truly believe that API's work is helping to make the world a better place--right now and for generations to come.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

API Inc. has been invaluable to me. I would not be half the mother I am today were it not for the API listserv I belong to, moderated by API leaders.
