Former WDT reporter pens controversial cover story for Time magazine

Time magazine's cover story "Are You Mom Enough?" is causing a stir for its cover photo showing a woman breast feeding her three-year-old son.

The story was written by Kate Pickert, a former reporter for the Watertown Daily Times.

The photo shows Jamie Lynne Grumet, 26, a stay-at-home mom in Los Angeles who says her mother breastfed her until she was 6 years old.

The issue includes a profile of the attachment parenting guru, Dr. Bill Sears, who wrote one of the movement's bibles, "The Baby Book," 20 years ago.

Writes Pickert: "As I spoke with parents, especially mothers, about their parenting styles, I found that even those who didn't know Bill Sears by name had been touched by the phenomenon of attachment parenting — whether as practitioners of some of its tenets or as critics. TIME's May 21 cover story introduces readers to Sears, the man whose influence has shifted mainstream American parenting and brought us to a point where mothering requires more physical and emotional investment than perhaps ever before."
