API's Publications Team aims to explore all facets of Attachment Parenting, from educating on the importance of secure parent-child attachment to supporting parents in making family-centered choices to exploring the research behind Attachment Parenting to opening discussion among parents and professionals on the impact of parenting trends on our society.
API promotes parenting practices that create strong, healthy, emotional bonds between children and their parents. Through education, support, advocacy and research, API's principal goal is to heighten global awareness of the profound significance of secure attachment -- not only to invest in our children's bright futures, but to reduce and ultimately prevent emotional and physical mistreatment of children, addiction, crime, behavioral disorders, mental illness and other outcomes of early unhealthy attachment.
All of API's publications are available free-of-charge to API Advocates, a free membership program.
