Who is Attachment Parenting International (API)?

Attachment Parenting International is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit member organization, networking with parents, professionals, and like-minded organizations around the world. In addition to providing assistance in forming Attachment Parenting support groups like those in the Snohomish County area, API provides educational materials, research information, consultative, referral, and speaker services to promote the concepts of Attachment Parenting.

"Every stage in a child's life is there for a purpose. If we can respect and respond to her needs fully during each stage of her life, she can be done with that stage and move on." —Naomi Aldort

Attachment Parenting is a philosophy based in the practice of nurturing parenting practices that create strong emotional bonds, also known as secure attachment, between the infant and parent(s). This style of parenting encourages responsiveness to the infant or child's emotional needs, and develops trust that their emotional needs will be met. As a result, this strong attachment helps the child develop secure, empathic, peaceful, and enduring relationships.

Through education, support, advocacy and research, API seeks to strengthen families and increase awareness of the importance of secure attachment, ultimately helping to reduce or prevent child abuse, behavioral disorders, criminal acts and other serious social problems.

We have an online Yahoo group community availalbe to you 24/7 to help gain insight, comfort, support or tips from other families. You'll find our calendar, information, support and conversation there.
