5   Link   Ask Dr Sears
We are William Sears, MD and Martha Sears, RN. After raising eight children and practicing pediatric medicine for more than 30 years, we have answered questions from thousands of parents. Millions more have sought our advice through our 40+ pediatric books, articles in parenting magazines, and our appearances on more than 100 television programs. How did all of this come about? Because we've always loved kids. That's why this site is dedicated to the people who have taught us the most about pediatric care: our eight children - James, Robert, Peter, Hayden, Erin, Matthew, Stephen and Lauren.
6   Link   Attachment Parenting
The simple truth is that when we strengthen families, we nurture and fulfill our children's need for trust, respect, and affection, and ultimately provide a lifelong foundation for healthy, enduring relationships.
API promotes parenting practices that create strong, healthy emotional bonds between children and their parents. For life. So they can take those bonds with them into their adult lives and share them with their children. And their children can do the same. A life cycle of compassion and connection.
Through education, support, advocacy and research, our principal goal is to heighten global awareness of the profound significance of secure attachment - not only to invest in our children's bright futures, but to reduce and ultimately prevent emotional and physical mistreatment of children, addiction, crime, behavioral disorders, mental illness, and other outcomes of early unhealthy attachment.
7   Link   The Continuum Concept
This website has been created by members of the Liedloff Continuum Network (LCN) to educate and serve the public — especially parents, parents-to-be and anyone who cares about the well-being of infants and children — by advocating the principles described in The Continuum Concept and suggesting practical ways to integrate them into daily life. We also hope to serve those who are recovering from the adverse effects of a modern, "non-continuum" upbringing, and who may or may not be parents themselves.
The LCN, a worldwide network of people who are living by these principles, is a part of the Liedloff Society for the Continuum Concept, a non-profit organization.

9   Link   Our Emotional Health
Emotion is an essential aspect of interpersonal communication. The capacity to feel is what makes us human, and what connects us to one another. Emotional intelligence is what helps us to achieve our potential, and to fulfil our hearts’ ambitions. So, the more we develop and refine our emotional intelligence the more we can enjoy fulfilling relationships, realize our deepest longings, manage life’s conflicts with grace, and create fair, peaceful and sustainable societies.
Many of the experiences we have in childhood leave a lasting emotional impression, even if we don’t consciously recall them. Childhood therefore has a profound influence on how we relate to each other as adults.
The good news is there is a lot we can do to develop our emotional intelligence as adults. Counselling or psychotherapy can do much to help us develop our emotional health. Conflicts and difficulties can be turned into opportunities for learning, healing and growth.
Nurturing our emotional health can transform our relationships, and in fact, it can change the world.
Since our childhood experiences so strongly influence our emotional health, the way we raise our children is of profound consequence.
