Sure...ok. I am sure your kids will turn out just fine with all that coddling...

Let me know how that works out.

A different system would be make them cook their own meals out camping.

Make them do the dishes from cooking.

Make them set up their own tents and clean up the campsite after camping.

This activity builds confidence and independence.

Doing for them, does not.

Storm in a C-cup. Goddamn you yanks are a peculiar bunch, all gung-ho righteous christian morals and then illegally invade other countries on a revenge trip, still debating about homosexual rights, trying to be macho when macho only breeds ignorance as perfectly displayed in this thread by the many vocal naysayers.

Heck, I'm more interested in who the God of Cricket is!

Are you suggesting love, affection and independence can't walk hand in hand? My 18 month old is crazy independent. The kid will just wander off without me in public and not even care where I am. He has no trouble walking up to strangers and saying hi, or going off and doing his own thing.

So far it's working out great, almost too well because I have to worry so much about him wandering off and have to watch him like a hawk.

He can't even sit in my lap for longer than 2 seconds at a time before he has to find something new and interesting to play with. Although I do love that now he gives me impromptu kisses and hugs, I just love those.

ETA to add to your ETA

Good grief. *Sigh* OK Never anywhere did I say I would do EVERYTHING for my son. I said I shower him with hugs & kisses and as much affection as he wants or needs. He helps pick up his toys, and tries to wipe down the kitchen cupboards and sweep for me. Ugh never mind I don't need to defend my actions to someone who has no clue who I am.

Well, your the Mom, you can do that.

As long as you have a Dad and maybe some other good role model males around to balance it out they should be ok.

With my kids wifey was always harder on daughter and I was always more demanding of son. That was our dynamic. But wifey also agreed that they needed to do what they could for themselves, to build character and independence.

The kid in that picture is perfectly capable of holding a cup and feeding himself. By Mommy allowing him to continue to nurse, she is doing something for him that he could do for himself. This is a general principle but has universal applications including giving people Gov handouts and money rather than expecting them to earn money. But that is a different thread.

Yeah, there's something wrong there. If this were all about breast milk then the mother has plenty of time to use those suction things and put it in a cup for the child. To have a non-infant breastfeeding, this is all about the mom. I don't even know if it's a sexual perversion, but psychologically there has to be something wrong with the mom.

Even dumb animals know when it's time to stop breastfeeding.

Then again, move over, boy, it's my turn!

Would you really make a 3 year old hook up his mother's breast pump and fill a glass. It is much easier on everybody to get the milk direct. Once I walked in on a doctor pumping her breasts and she offered me some breast milk. I declined and to this day I think she is a strange one.

Absolutely, never know when those skills would come in handy.

He might join the Navy and need to run a dewatering pump to save the ship from sinking.

3 year olds are amazing with technology. Next time you need your computer fixed, ask a kid, you'll see.

Actually there is truth to that. I tried to pump, tried 3 different pumps and I got such a pitiful amount. I pumped for 1 hour straight once and got 3 oz
So no, that is not a viable option in some situations.

i'm all for sucking on female breasts. just not my moms.

poor kid, when he grows up he has to explain why he's standing on a stool sucking his moms left breast, instead of playing stickball outside with his friends.

i think time is trying to say the cut off is when the kid can reach without the aid of a step ladder.

another thread in the moral fabric of america getting ripped away.

america is headed into sodom and gomorrah territory. it's about 75%-90% there.

I just love how people ignorantly throw around terms such as Child Abuse, Child Pornography, Or Pedo. This is not either of those.


Physical, sexual, or emotional mistreatment or neglect of a child.

Child Abuse has been defined as an act, or failure to act, on the part of a parent or caretaker that results in the death, serious physical or emotional harm, Sexual Abuse, or exploitation of a child, or which places the child in an imminent risk of serious harm (42 U.S.C.A. § 5106g).

According to the definition, this child is not being abused. He is not being Physically, sexually, emotionally mistreated nor is he being neglected. Over nurturing does not constitute as child abuse.

What is Child Pornography?

Under federal law (18 U.S.C. §2256), child pornography1 is defined as any visual depiction, including any photograph, film, video, picture, or computer or computer-generated image or picture, whether made or produced by electronic, mechanical, or other means, of sexually explicit conduct, where

the production of the visual depiction involves the use of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct; or

the visual depiction is a digital image, computer image, or computer-generated image that is, or is indistinguishable from, that of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct; or

the visual depiction has been created, adapted, or modified to appear that an identifiable minor is engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

Federal law (18 U.S.C. §1466A) also criminalizes knowingly producing, distributing, receiving, or possessing with intent to distribute, a visual depiction of any kind, including a drawing, cartoon, sculpture or painting, that

depicts a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct and is obscene, or

depicts an image that is, or appears to be, of a minor engaging in graphic bestiality, sadistic or masochistic abuse, or sexual intercourse, including genital-genital, oral-genital, anal-genital, or oral-anal, whether between persons of the same or opposite sex and such depiction lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.

Sexually explicit conduct is defined under federal law (18 U.S.C. §2256) as actual or simulated sexual intercourse (including genital-genital, oral-genital, anal-genital, or oral-anal, whether between persons of the same or opposite sex), bestiality, masturbation, sadistic or masochistic abuse, or lascivious exhibition of the genitals or pubic area of any person.

I see nothing sexual here. Not Child Pornography.

pedophilia
[ped′əfil′ē·ə]
Etymology: Gk, pais, child, philein, to love
1 an abnormal interest in children.
2 (in psychiatry) a psychosexual disorder in which the fantasy or act of engaging in sexual activity with prepubertal children is the preferred or exclusive means of achieving sexual excitement and gratification. It may be heterosexual or homosexual. Also spelled paedophilia. Also called pederosis. See also paraphilia. pedophilic, adj.


1. She appears to have no abnormal interests in children other than nurturing her own child beyond the social norm.
2. Again as I said nothing sexual going on here. If you think there is then you should be questioning yourself and your morals.


All in all there is nothing wrong here. Just because you think it isn't normal does not make it wrong. It's not sick. It's not disgusting. It's not WRONG. Go back to your little mundane NORMAL life and let other people live and do as they choose. It does not effect you so shut up and leave people be.

See, now that is what I am talking about.

You let the 3 year old run the pump, and then you get results.

Probably an operator problem. The 3 year old could tell you what you were doing wrong.

I remember doing a repair on the pipes in the laundry room. And there was this check valve in the drain pipe. And I thought it should be replaced, but I hate plumbing, and I was just going to finish up with what I had rather than go get another part. Joe, then probably 5, insisted we do it correctly. I mean, he got the idea that it was not quite right from me, but them when I decided to cut corners, he layed down the law, and insisted we do it right.

This speaks volumes about his character and initiative.

When he was older he spent many weekends teaching the younger scouts all the skills he had been taught. He eventually made Eagle and is in his first year at college now.

Seems like some of you people could of used longer breastfeeding to improve your IQs.

What does the ability to stand have to do with breastfeeding? Please, give me your best, scientific based opinion.


Most babies stand at around 9 months, but normal breastfeeding ages are a lot longer.

You see many native mothers breastfeeding? Are the ages of the children tattooed on their foreheads?

Breast feeding for a year sure even 18 months.

But through 3 years? WTF


That is just messed up. I don't know what else to say.


It might seem messed up to you, but the fact is that isn't unusual at all. I'd make a daring guess that it's more common than homosexuality.

3/4 down the first page and you are the first one to be rational about this. Congrats

My buck fifty on the matter...
Teen mags are far worse then this Time mag... FAR WORSE! This is natural and nothing to be afraid of. If the mother chooses to BF THEIR kid so be it it is none of our GD business.

If anything be mad at Time for publishing it but please take that same rage and direct at all the teeny bopper mags that sell sex.

Anyone who thinks an image of a woman breastfeeding is 'inappropriate' likely needs a lot of safety gear when they leave the house. It is one of the most natural, normal things around.

. It shows a boy, clearly too old to be breastfeeding, sucking on the breast of a woman, who is presumably the boys mother.


'presumably'? One does not need to 'presume', sir. The article states she is his mother.

"Presume-Suppose that something is the case on the basis of probability" Breastfeed.

Also, 3 is not too old to breastfeed. It's not common, but it's also not unheard of. Many mothers begin weening in the twos, but still allow the child to breastfeed, on occasion into their 3s. Since the Time article is behind a pay wall, we really cant know the context of when and how she breastfeeds.


To me, this seem like child abuse and is clearly inappropriate. The mother, photographer and publisher should be held accountable, but I'm sure they won't be.


Child abuse? Seriously? Would it be puppy abuse to take a picture of a puppy breastfeeding from its mother?

I think feeding a kid soy-based formula is probably closer to child abuse than giving them the milk their mother supplies just for them.

Does femininity frighten you? Were you perhaps not breastfed? Sometimes gay men are scared of boobs. Have you looked into that?
