We've not had DS vaxed with the varicella vaccine - but we're on the fence about whether or not to do it. What are the pro's and cons? Our most compelling reason to do it is fear of shingles, but is that common?

Okay, so it is a topic to be avoided.
From the API website
This style of parenting encourages responsiveness to the infant or child's emotional needs, and develops trust that their emotional needs will...
So, do you get some sort of award for being the most AP parent around?
I don't see how elective circ could possibly fall into a definition of AP parenting - a very natural parenting technique. If you had your son done, does it make you a bad parent? I'm not here to judge, as I had my first DS circ'ed due to ignorance and left my second intact due to education. Does educated elective circ fall into AP - I don't think so at all.
