    The latest issue of TIME, featuring our cover story on the rise of attachment parenting, “Are You Mom Enough?” hits newsstands Friday.

    Read more here.

    omg. “Breastfeed forever. It will make your kid grow so fast he looks six when he’s three. So he can defend himself when his peers find this magazine cover on the Internet.”

    All I can think of is Lysa and Sweet Robin

    I dunno Time Magazine, did you fucking ask if any fathers are Dad Enough?

    Or does that not matter as long as you can continue to criticize women and motherhood in general?

    Time Magazine is basically some sort of smug, weave your own baskets version of fucking Cosmo.

    And let’s not discuss how attachment parenting is by and large dependent on a stay-at-home mother who does nothing but care for her child all day.

    Or the racial/class/political connotations and consequences of that.

    Or we could talk about how they staged the picture to make the three year old look MUCH older than he probably does on a day to day basis.

    So this is sexist and gross, and they’re definitely trying to turn this into a girl(woman) hate thing.

    But you don’t have to be a SAHM to be an attachment parent. AP has a special place in my heart so i feel the need to clarify that these are the 8 principles of AP:

    1. Preparation for Pregnancy, Birth and Parenting
    2. Feed with Love and Respect
    3. Respond with Sensitivity
    4. Use Nurturing Touch
    5. Ensure Safe Sleep, Physically and Emotionally
    6. Provide Consistent Loving Care
    7. Practice Positive Discipline
    8. Strive for Balance in Personal and Family Life

    You can practice these things to varying degrees (or choose not to practice some of them at all) and you can DO WHAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU. Even if you’re working!

    Also, there’s nothing wrong with a 3-year old who breastfeeds.

    I’ve never understood articles/books/people who tell parents how to parent their kid. There shouldn’t be parenting schools of thought, each parent should be personally deciding how the raise their children and if other people don’t like it then they can fuck off.
