Celebrate Attachment Parenting Month by Giving Our Children Presence

Children thrive in the presence of sensitive and loving adults. Research confirms what we already know about providing these critical, yet fleeting experiences. As busy parents, we are challenged to invest our limited time wisely for the greatest benefit of our most precious family members. The upcoming holiday season is often filled with material presents that are soon broken, lost, discarded, and forgotten. Join Attachment Parenting International (API) and Mothering magazine in celebrating Attachment Parenting Month this October and discover new and enduring traditions to “Give Our Children Presence”.

Key Attachment Parenting Month goals include unifying the Attachment Parenting voice to:

1. Offer parents and adults support and confidence in “Giving Our Children Presence”

2. Promote awareness of AP

3. Educate about API, other AP Month sponsors, and the services they provide to parents

4. Provide a source of funds to support the API mission
