Time Magazine Cover: Another Perspective

I really hate to put the picture of this cover on this blog. I hope I don't get labeled an adult website.

But I figured I needed to include this photo, for the discussion at hand. I mean, if you were out of the country, or on another planet, for the past week, you probably haven't heard about the controversy over this cover photo, or in the article inside.

But debating the issue of "attachment parenting" is not why I'm writing this post. I have one question that I'd like you to answer.

When this boy is 15 and someone shows him this picture, what is he going to think?

Who is "Mom (or Dad) Enough" to answer?


  1. Maybe the picture is really just a clever ploy to keep him from taking things too far with girls as a teenager. The wrong image can really kill a moment.

    1. Hmmmm.... Maybe I'll need to keep those pics of my sons nursing at hand when they start dating. Thanks for the parenting tip.

  2. Great article. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I know, right? That was EXACTLY what I thought when I first saw it too. What in the world is this kid gonna think when he is grown? Ack!
