Forget attachment parenting, helicopter parenting, natural parenting, and everything in between -- because the celeb-types have a brand new style of raising kids that's apparently all the rage.
It's called "RIE Parenting," which is an acronym for Resources for Infant Educarers. It's pronounced "wry," and the basic gyst of it is treating babies like individuals ... not like tiny little bundles of joy. Why on earth should kids be treated like kids? (That just isn't right.)
Some of RIE's famous fans include Helen Hunt, Tobey Maguire, Penelope Cruz, and Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy, to name a few.
And apparently this style of parenting is oh so appealing to A-listers because duh -- they're raising their babies without "disrespecting" them.
