Program Description:

Currently, our primary operating program is the affiliation and coordination of Attachment Parenting Support Groups around the world. Our groups are being facilitated by husband and wife teams, mothers, social workers, or childbirth or parenting educators. The focus of these groups is to educate parents and potential parents in the critical emotional and psychological needs of infants and young children. Research has shown that parent support groups are most effective in reducing child abuse and neglect. Our primary objective is to help parents build strong emotional connections with their children. Those strong connections act like a vaccine to prevent a host of behavior and mental disorders in school or later in life. We encourage the active participation of fathers in the groups.

Program Long-Term Success:

API has 80 affiliated Attachment Parenting support groups in ten countries and growing!
