About AP Month 2010

What: Attachment Parenting International (API), along with the Sears family and other prominent AP supporters, declares October to be Attachment Parenting (AP) Month.

The AP Month vision is to create one strong voice for AP through activities, events and information and to celebrate what we believe in — the value of being “Full of Love” for our families and for our communities.

Who: All parents, AP partners and like minds around the world are invited and encouraged to join with us in growing “Full of Love” during the third annual Attachment Parenting Month.

Why: “Full of Love: Parenting to Meet Emotional and Physical Needs for Healthy Children” is the theme for AP Month 2010 and a statement that parents full of love seek to meet all the needs of their children–emotional and physical. During AP Month, parents are challenged to re-examine their daily activities and traditions and learn new ways to grow with each other and remain close and supportive. AP Month partners will offer resources to support and sustain these efforts all year round.

Key AP Month Goals include unifying the AP voice to:
1. Offer parents and adults support and confidence in growing families “Full of Love.”
2. Promote awareness of AP.
3. Inform the public about API, other AP Month sponsors and their services.
4. Provide a source of funds to support API’s mission.

Resources: The AP Month Central website is the gateway to information about AP Month. It includes the AP Month Toolkit as resource for you to use to plan and promoting your own events and activities for Attachment Parenting Month.
