    This is going to follow that poor kid forever. Kids can be very cruel.
    _____________________________________________________
    Jamie Lynn Grumet, the 26-year-old mother featured on the cover of Time magazine breastfeeding her 3-year-old son, has done more this week than become the poster woman for “attachment parenting,” the sometimes laudable movement that advises parents to be physically and emotionally available and responsive to their children. She has shown the limits of such a concept, and the ways in which it can be twisted into a bizarre, contemptible caricature of itself.

    Grumet is a model, and models have to have at least healthy dose of narcissism (television journalists like me, too, by the way). But I fear Grumet has more than what’s healthy.

    Because she thought nothing of becoming far more famous than she ever was or ever would have been by getting naked on the cover of Time using her son as a prop—letting him, in fact, look right into the camera and be completely recognizable while sucking her nipple. He may never be better-known for anything than for being a breastfeeding 3-year-old on the cover of a national magazine.

    Ever.

    Yes, because by the time he's like 10 years old all his fellow classmates will have definitely seen this Time cover and will mercilessly taunt him. Nobody is going to recognize that kid from that cover even by the time he's like 6, unless they personally know him.

    Non story in every way possible.

    I'd bet that it will follow him. If you know who his Mom is, somebody will put it together once he gets to be school age and lets face it, that Mom is not likely to be content sitting evenly in the back of the room at PTA meetings. That kid is going to get brutalized when he gets to school IMO.

    Let's imagine we fast forward 5 years to when the kid is about 8 years old. Who exactly is going to bring it up? Other kid's parents who have such a great memory that they remember the name of a woman who was on a Time magazine cover once talking about breastfeeding? Then they're going to tell their 8 year olds to pick on him?

    If you're talking about once the kid is in middle/high school, it'd be even less likely that anybody would even know anything about this Time article. If this was some massive story that would stay alive in pop culture until then that's one thing, but I somehow think that's not going to be the case.

    Do you have kids? If this kid stays in the same area he is going to get crushed. If you don't think so, you are seriously underestimating how cruel kids can be. He looks to be about four in that picture. I am not sure why you say fast forward five years. The kid can't do that. Even if he could he would still be attached at the tit to his crazy *** mommy. His mother is a model that is trying to get her name out there by abusing her son. Disgusting.

    If I slip that kid an ice cream, do you think he will let me switch places with him?

    wow are you ever living 15 years ago. This kids name is now on the internet. Will be for life. Cover Page of Time? You think that will be forgotten?

    This kid will be paying for his mothers stupidity for a long time to come

    I wouldn't sweat it, I'm sure before we know it a federal anti-bullying task force agency will be created and all the little children will sleep well at night.

    The kid will need to be home schooled. That will be about the only way he isn't mercilessly picked on.

    Yep, they will remember and parents talk. Your kids play sports with other kids and there parents talk. Kids listen to parents talk and that's what happens. It happens in grade school, it is even worse in Jr. High and HS. I have four kids and I can absolutely tell you that this is what happens.
