Wow, talk about controversial!
The picture (above) is from the cover article from this week's Time magazine. The story concerns a form of parenting called attachment parenting.
And it's, er, inneresting - to say the least.
The main three habits of attachment parenting are prolonged breast-feeding, co-sleeping and "baby wearing."
The cover photo features a mother and her 3-year-old son from Los Angeles who embodies extended parenting.
Here's what the photographer had to say:
“When you think of breast-feeding, you think of mothers holding their children, which was impossible with some of these older kids. I liked the idea of having the kids standing up to underline the point that this was an uncommon situation.”
That's definitely one way to make a point!
Happy Mothers Day everybody!
