Today, API Speaks, the blog of Attachment Parenting International, celebrates its second anniversary. On April 15, 2008, API Speaks launched and became part of the Attachment Parenting International publication family. During the past two years we’ve seen our readership grow and we’ve had some great bloggers share their attachment parenting stories through the blog.
Here’s an excerpt from the very first blog post, which helps share a little bit about why the blog was started.
Like so many of API’s other offerings in the realm of education, research, and support, API Speaks is volunteer-operated and provided as a free service to the AP community. Our mission is to capture the real stories of life as an AP family and to highlight the fact that, despite all the varied family structures, cultures, religions, and dynamics that exist in the world, there is one thing that unites us: Our love and compassion for our children.
That mission continues today as bloggers give us a little glimpse into their daily lives. From Gentle Baby and Toddler Sleep Tips to learning how you can be a patient parent, you’ll find a wide variety of parenting topics discussed here on API Speaks.
As we enter our third year I’d like to thank all of you for following along as our blog has grown. I’m looking forward to what the future brings as the API Speaks blogging team continues to share their first-person accounts of parenting…attachment style.
