Attachment Parenting is a philosophy based in the practice of nurturing parenting methods that create strong emotional bonds, also known as secure attachment, between the infant and parent(s). This style of parenting encourages responsiveness to the infant or child's emotional needs, and develops trust that their emotional needs will be met. As a result, this strong attachment helps the child develop secure, empathic, peaceful, and enduring relationships. Cherished Children Attachment Parenting International (API) of Boulder is a chapter of Attachment Parenting International, which promotes these parenting practices through its Eight Principles of Parenting.

CCAPI communicates primarily through an active Yahoo!Group that is not formally affiliated with API.
