About AP Month 2017

Word Power:  Communicating for Connection

Are we using our word power to connect?

Our AP Month is always about celebrating and supporting each other as we strive for more peace and harmony in our families and this year we’ll look at how we can do this with our words.

Here’s how to get involved:

  • Send your photos to help us get a picture of connective word power.
  • Subscribe to APtly Said (API’s blog) for daily doses of connective Word Power in October!
  • Email development@attachmentparenting.org to donate items to our online auction (proceeds benefit API’s mission).
  • Share AP Month with everyone you know and spread the “word power!”

What: Attachment Parenting International (API), along with the Sears family and other prominent AP supporters, declared October to be Attachment Parenting (AP) Month.  API has been celebrating AP Month every October since 2008.

The AP Month vision is to create one strong voice for AP through activities, events and information and to celebrate in our families and our communities.


Who: All parents, AP partners and like minds around the world are invited and encouraged to join with us during Attachment Parenting Month.
