Celebrate Attachment Parenting International Month! October 2012

Celebrate Attachment Parenting International Month!


What: Attachment Parenting International (API), along with the Sears family and other prominent AP supporters, declares October to be Attachment Parenting (AP) Month.

The AP Month vision is to create one strong voice for AP through activities, events and information and to celebrate our annual theme.

Who: All parents, children and those who work with families.  (Everyone!)  AP partners and like minds around the world are invited and encouraged to participate in the annual Attachment Parenting Month.

Why?: During AP Month, parents are challenged to re-examine their daily activities, routines, beliefs, habits and traditions and learn new ways to engage with their children to grow with each other and remain close while promoting opportunities for healthy exploration, individuation and development.  AP Month partners will offer resources to support and sustain these efforts all year round.

AP Month is visioned to unify the AP voice in order to achieve these goals:
1. Offer parents and adults support and confidence in implementing our theme.
2. Promote awareness of AP.
3. Inform the public about API, other AP Month sponsors and their services.
4. Provide a source of funds to support API’s mission.

Resources: The AP Month Central website is the gateway to information and activities related to AP Month.
