API is an inspiration! it aims for child and family flourishing in a world that is often hostile to those aims. it is a place to go for support of compassionate, nurturing parenting. While it inspires, it is also realistic about family life. Heart and mind together in its approach, advice and promotion. I find it to be a highly ethical organization.
My whole family, eight children and now 14 grandchildren, have benefitted immensely from what we have learned from Attachment Parenting, International. And in my husband's and sons' Pediatric and Family Medicine practices, we have seen the effects of this organization as it supports the parenting choices that our these families make to stay connected. The families are healthier in so many ways by practicing this way of parenting. Thank you, API, for making a huge difference in our lives, the lives of the parents we serve, and in the wider world of families in our nation and even around the world. One of the best ways they do this is through, not only the local support groups, but through a remarkable website that offers information and encouragement for the hard but joyful work of parenthood.
Attachment Parenting International has made an invaluable contribution to parenting practices, encouraging parents to respond to their babies and children with sensitivity and compassion, promoting healthy attachments that lead to positive effects on our society. API promotes and supports practices that are practical as well as research-based. It is a unique organization with grassroots support and national impact.
Review from Guidestar
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.
