I watched it last night. Did you? What did you think?
If you didn't watch and you want to learn a little bit more, this article did a great job in explaining "the experiment."
Overall, so far so good. The show eases the teens into becoming parents. I found it interesting how one girl fell apart over using the pregnant belly. (I sincerely felt bad, she must have some sever body issues.)
Also, I found it interesting that the actual parents could suprovise and when they decided and how they interacted with the teen parents. Most telling is that one set of parents are educators and one mother was herself a single mom. They probably know something of the value of a show such as this.
Surprisingly was that one teen boy felt like this was the best decision for him and his girlfriend. And that it may make her change her mind in wanting a baby soon.
I must admit that I was intrigued in a morbid "need to see what the accident looks like" way. But, now I am more impressed with the shows creators, the teens, and the parents who are involved with the show.
I'll be calling my friends with teens and telling them about this "experiment" - I sincerely can see the value.
Now, I really want to know your thoughts. Did you watch? If so, what did you think?
