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.

API Statement on Forced Separation of Children at Border Policy

Attachment Parenting International condemns federal immigration policies that separate children from their parents at the U.S. border. API implores our leadership to prioritize the healthy attachment needs of all children and families, including immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers. We strongly reject any immigration policies that traumatize children and their parents. API's Principle of consistent and loving care for children means that we believe in the importance of children remaining with their primary caregivers, especially in times of great stress. Decades of attachment and trauma research have shown that forced separation causes extreme and long-lasting psychological distress.
