Group Description

Welcome! This group is a newly forming official AP (Attachment Parenting International) Group in the Fort Worth Area.

Meetings will be held monthly, starting in September. If you have a suggestion of a place to meet, please let me know-we plan to meet somewhere near TCU most likely. There will be a small fee to join the actual API organization if you so choose (like LLL, it will NOT be mandatory to join). We will also plan time for playgroups and activities.


We will base our meetings and discussions on the 8 ideals of AP.

(see http://www.attachmentparenting.com/8Ideals.pdf or ths files section for more deatiled info)

The Eight Ideals of Attachment Parenting

1. Preparation for childbirth

2. Emotional responsiveness

3. Breastfeed your baby

4. Baby wearing and nurturing touch

5. Nighttime parenting

6. Avoid frequent or prolonged separations

7. Use positive discipline

8. Maintain balance in your family life

Due to some problems in the past, I feel obligated to add this disclaimer:
Our group's focus is AP. If you're into some of the natural living lifestyle, we totally are accepting of that, but please do realize that not all of us are. So feel free to post anything you like about these topics, but I just ask that we all be sensitive to eachother's preferences and don't flame or put down others for not thinking likewise on those topics.

Not that any of this is bad or good, but you’ll notice there is nothing about cloth diapering, home schooling, home births, vaccinations, baby signing, organic food, or other natural living topics in the ideals themselves, other than bf (and they even condone lovingly bottle feeding your baby).

The idea of AP is tolerance of what works for families as long as it includes love and nurturing your child.
