My local Attachment Parenting group was a lifesaver for me as a first time mom. I realized after having my son that I wanted to be more of a responsive parent. I liked to hold my son and even have him sleep near me. I didn't like letting him cry. I then heard about attachment theory and Attachment Parenting. I found a refuge with like-minded mothers/caregivers. After attending meetings for a year, I decided I'd like to do more. I'm in the process of becoming an API Leader. I also assist API in their social media efforts.

API has assisted, through their publication, Attached At The Heart, in rearing our family with solid science and not just random opinions. I fully support this organization and hope their new project, curriculum for parenting, will be accepted as a standard to be used as a guideline for all parents regardless of the phase of their experience..

What I appreciate the most about API is the wonderful articles that they produce. The messages reaffirm that I am doing the best with my child regardless of what everyone else thinks. It has given me that extra push not to let others dictate how I will raise my daughter (even if it causes friction with others).

I am hoping that APIs beliefs will continue to spread-I would love to attend a support group and hope that one day there will be one in my area.

More support groups in more cities! There is an option to start one, but working full time and raising a toddler, I do not have the luxury of hitting the pavement to set things up (although I'd love to help run one). Even the option of an online support group for web chats. (www.oovoo.com)

Discovering API was a wonderful affirmation that our parenting style was highly credible and we realised we could rely on sound research and resources on the API website. It took me a year before deciding to train as a support group leader where I am currently the only accredited leader in the UK (but no for much longer as others are training, hurrah!). I loved the training, am so grateful for the rigorously thorough support of everyone at API and really enjoy the support group leaders forum. Starting my own API group has been one of the most enjoyable and satisfying things I have done and I believe API will always be a source of inspiration and integrity, thank you!

The Great!

Review from Guidestar

I have had a wonderful experience with API ever since I was a new mom, not sure what to do, and finding conflicting, demeaning, and unclear advice at every turn. API put together the pieces for me, helped me make sense of all the things a mom has to think about, and--most importantly--was supportive and encouraging in their message. I am a member and support API whenever I can because I think they are doing such great things for families (and therefore, the communities and the world). I have since gone on to support new families and I still draw from API for the information that I pass along.

The Great!

I found myself living thousands of miles away from family and friends shortly after the birth of my son (thanks economic downturn!) and had to rely on the internet and books for most of my parenting support. I was delighted to find API and it has become my top destination as a source of real, relevant parenting information. I am so grateful that API exists!

The Great!

As we began researching this great experiment called parenting, we were profoundly affected by the research data that supports the ideals of attachment parenting. We got off on the right track but quickly realized we had questions and needed more than just research to guide our actions. We have found API Inc. to be a great help in continuing to gather information. Can't tell you how many times I have heard from grandparents et al... "That attachment stuff really seems to work!" Our daughter is thriving, confident and happy.

The Great!

Attachment Parenting International is an organization that strongly advocates keeping a healthy, nurturing, and compassionate bond with your children that will last through the years, even into adulthood. With all of the initiatives that API does it brings them closer and closer to changing every generation to be more loving and peaceful. From my own experience, having a nurturing environment is a must since I did not grow up this. I don't have the tools to tackle that on my own but API does. API offers these tools to me either free or at a low cost. Without API, I wouldn't have a daughter who could advocate for herself and others about violence not being okay.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the environment of my family. Through myself and through my API commmunity.
