It's reading time again! The API Reads book for May and June will be Attached at the Heart by Barbara Nicholson and Lysa Parker. The API Reads program is a way for you to read books that help you further your connection with your child and family. Join the discussion through GoodReads. We look forward to reading with you!
API launches the API Warmline to serve families in urgent or distressing situations when information or support is not available locally, on the API Forum, or the API website resources.
Need urgent help? Nowhere else to turn? API comes to the rescue (again)!
API urges families to first contact their local API parent group for ongoing and local support or seek support on the API Forum. When local support is not available, a message can be left at API's 800 number: 1-800-850-8320 for U.S. families, or a message sent to this email address. The call will be returned by an accredited Leader who can help. (As always, any life-threatening or medical calls should go to your emergency 911 number.)
Donations to support this program can be made on the API website or sent to API, P.O. 4615, Alpharetta, GA 30023.

Attachment Parenting International knows that some families either don't live close to a support group, or are unable to attend due to busy schedules. So we want to bring parent education and support right to your living room with Ask API Live, a monthly telephone seminar (teleseminar) in which API Co-Founders Barbara Nicholson & Lysa Parker, along with author Lu Hanessian, interview members of the parent education community on a variety of topics. Check them out now and listen at your convenience.
You won't believe how important parent support is...
...until you read it. You can. See what parents have to say. You can be the cause of even more ripples with API.
