The essence of Attachment Parenting is about forming and nurturing strong connections between parents and their children.
Attachment Parenting challenges us as parents to treat our children with kindness, respect and dignity, and to model in our interactions with them the way we'd like them to interact with others.
Attachment Parenting isn't new. In many ways, it is a return to the instinctual behaviors of our ancestors.
This body of knowledge offers strong support for areas that are key to the optimal development of children, in API's Eight Principles of Parenting.
