Share the journey, Build a community!
Meet other parents who practice Attachment Parenting!
Attachment Parenting focuses on forming and nurturing strong bonds between parents and their children. Attachment Parenting challenges us as parents to treat our children with kindness, respect and dignity, and to model in our interactions with them the way we'd like them to interact with others.
And while this approach sounds simple, attachment parents often find themselves alone on this parenting journey. We saw the need for a community of like-minded parents in Pittsburgh and started this group. Since its inception, Pittsburgh Attachment Parenting Meetup Group has grown and evolved. We are all happy to be sharing this journey, supporting one another, and building a community based on respect for ourselves and our children.
