New TV Program

The web page says:

Learn more about this riveting social experiment where five teenage couples fast-track to parenthood.

There are no prizes and no eliminations, just a great big dose of reality.

I watched the preview to the new program and it looks like this 'experiment' will be worthwhile. Still, nothing prepares a person for parenthood, like parenthood.

The 'reality' program might be able to give teenagers a glimpse of the unending responsibility of parenthood, but like motherhood and grandparenthood, you don't see the whole picture till you get there. It should be fun to watch.

I'll have to catch The Baby Borrowers. Sounds like a great idea, but you're right -- nothing can prepare you fully for parenthood. I remember my eldest daughter, who had done a lot of baby-sitting and helped out with her younger sisters, tell me after her first baby was born, "I never knew I'd be this tired." Now, as a single working mom with two children, I know she is still perpetually sleep-deprived. That's the real face of parenthood -- accompanied, of course, by all the real joys.
