The May issue of TIME

The latest cover of TIME Magazine has stirred a debate among mothers on how to parent. It has also likely been stolen from Mom by countless 13 year-old boys in America who will severely crinkled it. The topic discussed is one I had not heard of before – “Attachment parenting.” Attachment parenting has been on the rise over the last two decades, since the publication of The Baby Book by Dr. Bill Sears and his wife, Martha, in 1992. Its three main tenets are extended breast-feeding, co-sleeping and “baby wearing,” in which infants are physically attached to their parents by slings.

The most controversial activity appears to be extended breastfeeding. Some mothers are breastfeeding kids way past the age where society says it’s okay. As a soon-to-be parent, I am curious to see what all of you think about this? How old is too old? What about some of these other topics? Oh, and should we feed our baby like Alicia Silverstone does? Only kidding.

Most hated baby names

Most hated baby names: Is your kid’s on the list? The list comes from Laura Wattenberg, author of The Baby Name Wizard: A Magical Method for Finding the Perfect Name for Your Baby. Yell at her, not me.

The Baby Name Wizard  A Magical Method for Finding the Perfect Name for Your Baby

Most Hated Girl Names
Nevaeh (“heaven” spelled backward and one of the most divisive names around, according to Wattenberg)
Destiny (people dislike names that confer a virtue onto a child, Wattenberg said — and many associated this name with exotic dancers)
Addison (an example of a masculine named turned feminine, which many people dislike, Wattenberg said)
Gertrude (people said this name is “ugly”)
Kaitlyn (for its “made-up” spelling)
Bertha (author’s note: duh!)

Most Hated Boy Names
Kaden (these rhyming names struck many as overdone, Wattenberg reported)
Hunter (too much like a last name or “too violent”)
Bentley (people dislike brand-name names, Wattenberg found, calling them “trashy”)
Michael (too boring, according to some)

Brother bonding

Older brother tells his younger brother that he can keep whatever money he can catch after it is thrown in the air. Worth watching.


Mark Wahlberg talks about his Catholic faith

Mark Wahlberg is a Roman Catholic who goes to church every day to pray to be a better servant of God, and to try to be a better man.

Refreshing to hear a Hollywood star open up like this while so many of his peers speak of Christianity with such vitriol.
