May 10 (UPI) -- This week's provocative cover of Time Magazine features a three-year-old boy suckling on his young mother's breast alongside the headline, "Are You Mom Enough?"

Kate Pickert's cover story delves into so-called "attachment parenting," in which some fathers, but especially mothers, take emotional parenting techniques to the extreme -- like breastfeeding and sleeping with children well-past ages considered typical.

UPDATE: Time Magazine's controversial cover is now a meme.
