Meet other Ottawa parents who choose to nurture strong connections with their children by responding to their children's needs promptly and with kindness, empathy and respect. Attachment parenting is about forming and nurturing strong connections between parents and their children. This natural and instinctive approach to parenting can include particular parenting choices, including: breastfeeding/child-led weaning, cosleeping, babywearing, cloth diapering, natural family living or otherwise, but the underlying values of kindness, empathy and respect are what define "attachment parenting". Not every family that is an "AP" family will necessarily choose to cloth diaper, co-sleep or otherwise. This group is not dogmatic. This group is for parents who believe in and work toward living the values of attachment parenting, wherever they are in their journey. Membership in this group requires a commitment to participate in events on a regular basis (at least one event each 60 days). Please ensure you have a photo of yourself where your face is clearly visible (not your child) as your profile picture, or your membership request will be automatically declined.
Please note: Members may not advertise home businesses on the group's message board until 60 days after becoming active members of this group. After 60 days, members may post about their business ventures in the Marketplace thread only.
