When I was pregnant with my first I heard about AP for the first time. It was on a TV show on TLC. I can't remember the name of it but had a group of women who met in a coffee shop and each week the show was about one memeber who had a question or a problem with their child(ren). There was this one mom who said she was an AP mom and she had a problem with her 2 year old girl running out in the street. She said that, as an AP mom, she had never said 'no' to her daughter since it was not AP. That was my first impression of AP parents and it was not a good one. I decided right then that I was not even remotely interested in being an AP mom.
Now a couple years later, I have read the book and found that I follow most of the 8 'guidelines' but I don't call myself AP, mostly due to that one mom.
So I was curious, do AP parents believe this way? I couldn't find anything in Dr. Sears' book about it.

We loosely follow AP,AP does not mean that you do not discipline our children. We just do it in a more gentle way. Yes, I tell my children no.
