About API Seattle

Attachment Parenting International of Seattle (API Seattle) is a support group affiliated with Attachment Parenting International that provides encouragement, advice, education, and friendship for attachment-focused families.

We form a “village” of connected families. API Seattle families gather regularly for playgroups, potlucks, and other social events, and maintain a lively, encouraging, and respectful online discussion. We offer parent education through monthly topical meetings, occasional seminars and other enrichment events, and resources such as a lending library of attachment-focused parenting books and other media.

Our families have the shared goals of meeting our children’s needs and fostering strong relationships. We recognize that how we accomplish those goals differs with each family and we believe that there is no one right way to be an attachment parent. It’s the attachment that’s paramount, and our shared awareness of and commitment to developing deep and lasting relationships with our children brings our community together.

We invite you to engage with API Seattle by attending a monthly meeting, or any other event that suits your family, and by participating in our email discussion group.
