Yes it was The Baby Borrowers and I also just looked on Youtube to see if they had it and they do and I see they also done an American version and they have a "The Baby Borrowers Where Are They Now?" episode..... I can't remember the UK having that :?

Quoting Carla Orta:" I think they should have a class where the teenagers have to take care of a real live kid( instead of ... [snip!] ... got pregnant maybe there would be less teen pregnancies. Because the girl would understand the consequence of getting pregnant"

lol. i wish there was a practical way of doing that!

The only reason I suggested this is because some highschools have mandatory parenting classes but only after the girl has given birth and at that point it is sink or swim.

But having someone there to supervise or "save" them doesnt give them a real dose of reality at all. If anything, it's just like "Well if I have a kid my Mom will help save me or I can always choose adoption later on." They arent emotionally invested so they REALLY dont know whats going on. And to have someone there to "save" them once they leave the kid screaming for an hour to eat at 3am doesnt help them either. They just roll over and go back to sleep.



I think its a crap idea... it doesnt really show what parenthood is like.

I'd been left in charge of babies and toddlers for extended periods of times. Didn't stop me from getting knocked up at 16.

It scared me off the d for awhile :lol: I got pregnant when Ev was 3 months old and didn't have sex again until after she was 2.

Why only for girls? Shouldn't males be held just as responsible as females?
We had parenting in my high school. Mostly females took it but some males did. We went to the daycare trailers and interacted with the babies/toddlers which I think it a good idea...but actually taking care of real babies full time? f**k NO.

Probably because teenage girls are most often the idiots that want babies young for various reasons.

But obviously it takes a boy to make the baby too...

That doesn't mean the male doesn't still have responsibility. If he's stupid enough to believe a girl isn't going to do that and refuse to wear condoms that's his fault. Birth control is just as much his responsibility as it is hers.

I didn't say birth control, I said contraception. I've known more than a few crazy b***hes that poked holes in condoms.

If he brings fresh condoms from his own stash every time then that isn't an issue. And if there is any doubt then he probably shouldn't be having sex. It takes two to make a baby. The blame shouldn't be solely placed on one or the other.
