We can nurture our children for a more compassionate world

Families struggle every day with parenting and lack of support. Find connection, relationships, and basic principles that can make a difference in your home and the world.


Make an impact

The truth is...

when we strengthen families, we nurture and fulfill our children's need for trust, respect, and affection, and ultimately provide a lifelong foundation for healthy, enduring relationships.

API promotes parenting practices that create strong, healthy emotional bonds between children and their parents. For life. So they can take those bonds with them into their adult lives and share them with their children. And their children can do the same. A life cycle of compassion and connection.

AP Month Photo Contest 2017

We’ve got a big idea for AP Month this year, but it depends on a collaboration with you – and all AP families! Let’s build a photographic image-base demonstrating our strength for Word Power – and share it with the world! The AP Month theme this year is “Word Power: Communicating for Connection” because we’re working toward changing the tone and content of our conversation with words that build up and nurture each other and our children.

Nurturing Peace for World Harmony - AP Month 2016!

As parents, we’re peacemakers by default.

Sure, we all fall short sometimes:  who of us isn’t tired, cranky, annoyed and just worn down at times?
