The first weekend in June was a special moment in the history of Attachment Parenting International.  API celebrated the 15th Anniversary of the organization.  Barbara Nicholson and Lysa Parker co-founded the organization and in the past 15 years, families all over the world have received support by API.

A variety of events are being planned this year to commemorate this special time in API’s history.  Beginning on June 15, Barbara Nicholson and Lysa Parker will be participating in a two week interactive forum discussion about their new book, Attached at the Heart.

Coinciding with the API Reads forum discussion will be a membership special.  Starting June 15, you will have the opportunity to buy a family or gift membership (maximum of 2 per household) for only $15!  This limited time offer will expire on June 30.

Additionally, a 15th Anniversary Celebration will be held at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee on August 29 and August 30.  Highlights of the event include an Attached at the Heart book signing, a panel discussion on the topic “Making an impact on children: Creating a sustainable legacy”, and a concert by Roger Day.

Panelists scheduled to appear include Dr. William Sears and Martha Sears, Dr. Stephen Bavolek, Mary Ann Cahill, Dr. James McKenna, and API founders Barbara Nicholson and Lysa Parker.  For more information on the event, visit API’s 15th Anniversary Weekend Celebration page.

More events to celebrate API’s 15th Anniversary are still in the planning stages, to stay informed of events as they are added, subscribe to the Attachment Parenting International RSS feed.
