Story

My parenting experiences and desire to reach out as a volunteer mean I am extremely keen to train as a Group Facilitator with Attachment Parenting UK (APUK).

As a social enterprise and non-profit organisation, APUK trains parents to facilitate parent/child groups to support parents interested in any aspect of attachment parenting. These face-to-face meetings are an important way for like-minded parents to connect and I’m committed to being involved with this positive and dynamic community.

Attachment parenting promotes a close, responsive relationship between parents and child and attachment parents are often highly creative in seeking out resources and materials to support their child’s emotional and physical development.

"Attachment Parenting is for everyone! Attachment Parenting is about building strong bonds with your child by responding to their needs in a timely and sensitive way. It is about modelling behaviour you wish to see and having respect, empathy and a desire for connection. It is about life-long relationship quality built on foundations of physical closeness and emotional understanding.

Attached families may enjoy the benefits of bedsharing, babywearing or breastfeeding but these are not essential; they are tools not rules which simply support the ability to be a highly responsive parent.”

Join me and spread the word about raising happy, secure children.

    Wishing you every success!! Parenting is hard without support and when your journey seems different to your friends or family, it can feel lonely. I hope this group brings together likeminded parents!
