The Parenting Educators:

Attachment Parenting International

Fifteen years ago Barbara Nicholson and Lysa Parker started Attachment Parenting International (API), a grassroots organization, to challenge and change the way children were being raised in many cultures. Nicholson and Parker call this revolutionary parenting movement  “attachment parenting” that is growing in many parts of the world. The website promotes the role that attachment theory plays in the prevention of many societal ills and the core principles of parenting that are so vital to our future.
