The area of attachment parenting is a quickly growing parenting "trend" propelled forward by a collective desire to grow. API is a great support to parents like myself who feel like we are parenting "against the grain" but fully feel that we are parenting by heart. Our children are the most important investment we can make for the world. I am happy to have a place to turn when I feel like an alien in a world of disconnected parenting.

When my first son was born I was overwhelmed with nurturing instincts that I did not expect and that were not supported in the mainstream culture. I knew these methods were what my son needed, but I didn't have a name for them and I couldn't fully explain why they felt right as a mother. Attachment Parenting International was the first forum I found that explained with solid information the practices that can raise a happy, empathetic child. I do still believe the world can be a more peaceful place and I believe it begins with raising our children with peace. Thank you API!

API has been a wonderful resource for me and my local AP group, providing us with access to numerous articles, books, blog posts and more which give us valuable research-based information that supports what we are trying to accomplish as parents and helps enhance the lives of our families and community.

I was first exposed to Attachment Parenting through the Dr. Sears book and I resolved to raise my kids this way which was at the opposite end of the spectrum of how I was raised. It has been a long road of self education and self discovery, but we are 10 years in Attachment Parenting, we have done the whole thing: carrying in a sling, cosleeping, extended breastfeeding, no corporate punishment, non-violent communication. There is no AP network where I live in Europe. I was so excited to hear about this group. The emails I get help me to continue being educated about AP parenting as my kids get bigger and we have to change how we AP parent but the spirit remains the same!

API offers amazing AP support and advice!! For those of us that have non-supporters of AP in our lives, API helps to make you feel RIGHT in your hearts decision to continue on the AP path. I am very grateful That I found the organization and love reading all of their useful articles!! Thanks API and keep up the fantastic work!

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.

The Great!

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

It has given me the reassurance that I am doing what is best for my child.

Ways to make it better...

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

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)

I am thankful for API, due to the lack of support for attachment parenting in my family and community. Whenever I need guidance, reassurance or useful resources, I just turn to API for information. I often post articles on my facebook page, which I feel other parent friends could benefit. I wish I knew of attachment parenting many years ago when I worked with attachment disordered children.

The Great!

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

everyday life. There is hardly a day that goes by that I don't utilize API for information or inspiration. I have 2 children and the oldest is highly sensitive and difficult to parent

Attachment Parenting International provides such needed education and support for an approach to parenting that is often overlooked in our society but that is, ironically, so vital for a sustainably healthy society. I love the articles, the support group feature, the forum, the teleseminars, the blog, and more.

The Great!

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

my family. We are a more connected family all the way around, and my children are growing up to be compassionate and emotionally balanced and mature.

Ways to make it better...

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

do exactly what's being done. I could not run it any better than what's being done in this economic recession.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the great availability of reading materials and connection to experts in the parenting field.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. They are parents themselves, which gives great credibility to the organization -- they believe enough in API to give back!

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

literally change the world. It could reach more families and prevent child abuse, and go so far as to even prevent violence. Attachment Parenting is all about violence prevention. Once you become educated, global peace is actually attainable.

Ways to make it better...

there were more local support groups.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

a lack of understanding of the full impact that Attachment Parenting has. Attachment Parenting is not a quick fix -- it's a process. What's popular is the quick fix, though quick fixes are not effective.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this organization does such a good job of reaching parents on a very limited budget. It has hundreds of volunteers around the world. People only dedicate hours to an organization that is worth those hours.
