Who we are


Circle of Families is an active group of over 100 families from the greater Philadelphia area that convene to learn about and discuss attachment parenting and natural family living. The active message board allows members to ask questions and share experiences in creating healthy and happy families in a rapidly changing world. It’s not all business—discussion topics include current world affairs, books, dinner planning and everything else under the sun!

And that’s the goal of the organization—to have fun and form lasting friendships in a supportive and educational environment.
