These teens caring for fake babies had bloody meltdowns after just one day
We’re gonna guess you’re aware of those school assignments that require students to look after a ‘baby’ for the weekend, but if you’re not, it’s a pretty simple concept. The kids take home a doll that’s programmed to be annoying as f**k at random moments and learn exactly what it’s like to be a parent. From what we can gather, it usually goes about as well as you’d expect. So when students from a Canadian school participated in the lesson, the texts they sent their teacher are sure to make the parents out there smile…
Rightio, let’s get a big show of hands from all the parents out there in the comments section. Now, for this story, it’s you blokes and blokettes we’re talking to.
You know what’s up, and we reckon you’ll get a kick out of this. And, you know what, if you want to quietly cry to yourself when you’re done, that’s okay too.
Students at Chippewa Secondary School in Ontario, Canadia, were participating in the school’s annual experiential learning weekend when they took their ‘babies’ home. From the looks of it, they wished they hadn’t within hours.
Basically, the ‘babies’ are programmed dolls that need to be cared for across the weekend. They kick up a stink at random – and wildly inconvenient – times, need constant attention, and, basically, make any teenager caring for them wonder why the f**k you’d ever want to be a parent.
Now, if you know teenagers, you probably know exactly how this ends. While some of them are no doubt caring and selfless individuals, the rigours of caring for a squalling bloody doll are a bit much. As such, some students aren’t ‘sure’ their doll is still working, drop the bloody thing down the stairs, cram it in their bag, or just straight up wonder how to ‘turn it off.’
You can see the text messages for yourselves, but for us, the best part is completely summed up with one response from the teacher: ‘Lol’. Bloody brilliant.
By the time the students returned the ‘babies’, everyone was looking a little worse for wear according to the school’s Facebook post:
“The babies are back!
Looking forward to class discussions about the experiential learning that happened this weekend 😂Everyone is looking a tad tired this Monday morning.”
Final thought: Honestly, we reckon this is a pretty bloody grouse idea. If there’s an effective contraceptive, this has to be it. Don’t ya reckon?
