Provocative Time Magazine Cover Examines 'Attachment Parenting'

Provocative Time Magazine Cover Examines 'Attachment Parenting' 29653
The cover of this week's Time magazine features a 26-year-old mother breastfeeding her 3-year-old son under the headline "Are You Mom Enough?"  As MediaBistro.com reports, "The feature inside Time is about Dr. William Sears, the man credited with starting "attachment parenting," but Time obviously knew this cover was much more attention-grabbing than putting him on the front. Mission accomplished."

Time's website, which makes the article available to subscribers, has this note from author Kate Pickert:

As the author of 40-plus books on parenting and pregnancy, Sears is a familiar figure to many American mothers and fathers. Some parents subscribe to his theory that attachment parenting — characterized by extended breast-feeding, co-sleeping and wearing your baby in a sling across your body — is the best way to raise confident, secure children. Others think Sears is an antifeminist tyrant, or that his ideas are just totally unrealistic.
