Group Description

NYC Attachment Parenting International (API) is the NYC Chapter of Attachment Parenting International (www.attachmentparenting.org) a non-profit, grassroots organization whose mission is to educate and support all parents in raising secure, joyful and empathic children in order to strengthen families and create a more compassionate world.

NYC API offers monthly, child-friendly parent meetings facilitated by API accredited peer-leaders. We approach common parenting topics from API's Eight Principles of Parenting.

API's Eight Principles of Attachment Parenting translate beneficial research into practical information and apply to every age child, every family type and parenting "style":

1. Prepare for Pregnancy, Birth, and Parenting
2. Feed with Love and Respect
3. Respond with Sensitivity
4. Use Nurturing Touch
5. Engage in Nighttime Parenting
6. Provide Consistent and Loving Care
7. Practice Positive Discipline
8. Strive for Balance in Personal and Family Life

We hope you'll join us online or in a meeting soon!

Co LEADERS: Sarah Longwell-Stevens (917-620-6905)
