The Great!

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

my own relationships to my children, who are now grown, and my grandchild. API has also influenced the way I communicate with everyone around me - at work, at church, as a Board member for other non profits, and in the community.

Ways to make it better...

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

increase API's presence locally, nationally and internationally.

More feedback...

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

the resources provided and the people who are involved.

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

incredibly intelligent, sensitive and committed.

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

reduce and ultimately prevent emotional and physical mistreatment of children, addiction, crime, behavioral disorders, mental illness, and other outcomes of early unhealthy attachment.

Ways to make it better...

I had unlimited time to spend with these people and their work!

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

the need for more funding to expand the work API can do.

I am on the Board of Attachment Parenting International and continue to be impressed with the quality of leadership, both from the Excecutive Director and staff, to the heart of the organization, it's volunteer Leaders and staff. These men and women give freely of their time, enriching the lives of so many families in their communities, supporting parents so that they can nurture their children. API understands that to truly change a culture, we have to start with young parents who need and want education, support, and guidance.

The Great!

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

seeing the incredible benefits of empowerment to mothers, fathers, and professionals in the field of child development.

Ways to make it better...

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

try to increase funding for their programs, including funding their parenting curriculum for teens and other undereducated young parents. I would also try to increase their visibility as an organization, as an example of an excellent grassroots movement.

More feedback...

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

The hope it gives me for mankind to see the love and commitment of so many volunteers, giving their time to support and nurture parents so that they can nurture their children.

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

committed, educated, kind, and nurturing. They understand that in order to help others, they must set an example for young parents to follow. Even the paid staff give many more volunteer hours than paid hours, because they see the huge need.

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

create parenting centers in every community where parents could get evidence based support for childbirth, breastfeeding, nurturing parenting,and positive discipline through the lifespan. We would also fund multi-disciplinary professional conferences.

Ways to make it better...

we had the funding to fullfill all of the need for outreach and evidence based materials that would help parents. Many parents are open to get help when they have a new baby, yet they are confused about the misinformation that they hear in our culture

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

changing the paradigm in our culture from fixing problems after they have manifested, to a prevention oriented culture that helps parents from pre-pregnancy through the lifespan of parenting. Funding needs to be focused here, not on the other end.

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

Babies are our future and deserve to come into a society that gives their parents the education and support to love, nurture, protect and properly educate their children.
