The members of this group believe in natural parenting approaches, such as attachment, gentle or simplicity to name a few. Natural parenting includes babywearing, co-sleeping, extended breastfeeding, and meeting the needs of your child immediately and with compassion. It may also include cloth diapering, elimination communication, natural and home birth, homeschooling or unschooling, anti or selective vaccination, and not circumsizing.
All gentle parents are welcome, even if they do not practice all of the above. No one should feel as if they are not "AP enough" to join.
We are forming a tribe of parents to support each other in these choices and will meet with our children for play dates, conversation and camaraderie. We encourage members to be active participants by suggesting meetings and participating in group discussions and topics.
