Time Magazine Cover - 'Attachment Parenting' is the title of the Video Monologue today. Andy bashes the mother who posed on the cover of Time Magazine with her 3 year old son for her own selfish benefit. She says she's an advocate for Attachment Parenting, Andy calls it emotional abuse. This child's face is being shown on the cover of a magazine. Andy fears that he will be picked on a little later in life. We got so many calls on this topic! Some feel attachment parenting raises kids to be self absorbed and spoiled and overly dependent; others feel it's needed to teach children how to be secure and trust. My favorite caller, though, was Mike who excitedly declared "The mom was hot!" Thanks Mike. Producer Miranda joins Andy in the studio for Bizarre News! A churchgoer rips a man's ear off, an Elvis impersonator is charged with assault over a board game, and my home town of Louisville, KY makes me proud! - NOT. :/
