Eating Your Placenta and other Parent Practices

<a href="/blogs/yvettevignando/2012/06/18/eating-your-placenta-and-other-parent-practices">Eating Your Placenta and other Parent Practices</a>

I didn't know what else to call this piece. My aim in this segment was to share some serious information about a few parenting topics that have hit the news due to celebrities talking about their parenting choices. We didn't get to discuss everything because one of my lovely co-hosts Sonia Kruger got the giggles - actually it was probably ambitious in the first place!

A Sunday Telegraph article on 3 April 2011 reported that Ms Goward juxtaposed Michael Jackson's dangling of his baby out of a window with Jackie O bottle feeding her baby while crossing a road. Reportedly Ms Goward commented that this is "cavalier" behaviour and "endangering" the baby.

In the past few days there has been interest in a story about author Terry McMillan's comments (on Twitter) regarding the parenting decisions made by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. Two of their three children are building a career in the entertainment industry and appear to be making a success of it. Sure, their parents' wealth and connections would be playing a large part in the opportunities presented to them, but are Jada and Willow Smith being harmed by their early career development?
