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.

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!

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

my training with them and in ongoing support and as a reliable, cutting-edge resource.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Work on spreading the word throughout Europe.

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.

API has been a phenomenal resource for me as a parent, socially, emotionally, educationally, and intellectually. The eight principles are based on the most up-to-date research on how to raise healthy, competent, and emotionally balanced children. Not only that, they have resources on how to stay sane as a parent! In addition to the online resources, API support groups have offered me the opportunity to spend time with other families who are committed to gentle, yet evidence-based, parenting. For almost 10 years now, I have spend time at least weekly, and often daily, with my AP friends, and it is them that I turn to when I feel frustrated as a parent. They always have ideas and reassurance. I can't imagine life without API.

The Great!

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

I came across API shortly after I became a Mom. I was so tired of hearing people tell me what I should be doing as a parent. API reaffirmed the message that I knew what I was doing, that I was capable, and I was doing just fine by following my gut. API is an amazing resource to parents everywhere who are navigating the sea of parenthood. API provides support and information that affirms every parent. A few months after I found API, I felt so strongly I chose to join the mission and apply to be a support group leader.

The Great!

Attachment Parenting International (API) is a testimony to how parents who care about their children and their community can mobilize to bring valuable information to all parents. API is a nonprofit that stays focused on its mission because of dedicated volunteers providing local support. API works smart and efficiently and is a good investment, leveraging funds to go far in not only the prevention of child abuse, but in nurturing children for healthy lifelong wellbeing, for themselves and toward others.

I've been a proud volunteer with API for the last 5 years and can say without a doubt that API truly makes a difference in the lives of children, families and their communities. API gives vital support to busy parents who are inundated with oversimplified parenting strategies that reduce children to a set of behaviors to be fixed. API helps parents focus on understanding, meeting and balancing needs and on developing healthy relationships that provide models for children to learn lasting skills in self discipline, problem solving, empathy and compassion.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

literally change the world. If more parents and children were supported in secure attachments, "intractable" social ills would be significantly reduced and even prevented thereby changing the entire spectrum of global possibilities.
