Or more of the same? Only I haven’t been paying attention–in fact, this brief item in a recent NYT was the first I’d heard of a program called “Baby Borrowers.” To wit:

The American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry said that NBC should end “The Baby Borrowers,” a reality television show that separates babies and toddlers from their parents and places them temporarily with teenage strangers. “A child’s sense of security should not be gambled with,” said Robert Hendren, the president of the academy. NBC has said that the “Baby Borrowers” is a social experiment that can educate teenagers on the responsibilities of parenting. The parents are able to monitor their children through video cameras.

Oh, then I guess that’s okay…
