I just caught a truly repulsive show on NBC in which young people borrow babies for a few days to see what it’s like. I guess the amazingly smug point is that they learn how hard it is to be a parent.
Bollocks. You can’t start someone out as a parent by throwing them right into the deep end. You grow with the child, being able to handle more and more as they get older. Moreover, when it’s your kid rather than someone else’s, you have a lot more patience and understanding.
What a bunch of crap.
