API Links Attachment Parenting Month 2009
Celebrate Attachment Parenting in October with Attachment Parenting International, AskDrSears.com, Mothering magazine, Infant Massage USA, and Search Institute, and AP Month sponsors, Lamaze International, WYSH, and Sleepy Wrap.

This year's Attachment Parenting Month theme-Attached at the Heart Through the Years-highlights the fact that our parenting role continues throughout and beyond childhood. Moreover, it's never too late to pursue a great relationship with your child.
Attachment Parenting is a joy-filled parenting style that prepares our children to have happy, healthy relationships the rest of their lives. It enriches the lives of parents and children of all ages. Attachment Parenting International's mission is to educate and support all parents in raising secure, joyful, and empathic children, thereby strengthening families and creating a more compassionate world.

We invite you to set some goals today that will benefit you and your child throughout the years.

You can help meet our AP Month goals to raise awareness about the benefits of attachment parenting and forward this email to your colleagues, friends, and family.

 Thank you for supporting API, and we hope you'll join in the celebration!
