Um, seems like you've totally missed the glaring irresponsibility associated with this show- the fact that they are exploiting the children. I never would have turned my children over at that young of an age (or any age- but especially as babies or toddlers) to teenagers without experience for entertainment. I'd have to be beyond bored with my life to watch this program.

It's a strong point. I didn't so much overlook it, as (and this is even worse) I think I've just become too jaded to point it out. Seems there's so much of that on TV that I'm accustomed to it. The producers try to explain this away with, "all the while under 24-hour supervision by nannies and the real parents who are stationed next door, watching via monitor, and able to step in at any time." Uh huh...that makes it okay. It's just all too scary.

The show seems safe, there is no way they would ever let anything bad happen to one of the children.

I don't dissagree that it's a safety issue- I think it's a psychological issue for the child. It can't be good, mentally, for an infant or toddler to be placed in that situation. They may be scared or worse, develop seperation anxiety or have abandonment issues later on in life. We all know our problems as adults stem from our childhood.

Amen. Apparently, my TiVo is smarter than I am. I set it to record the show, but it didn't make the channel change to do it. Even the machine didn't want to be associated with that cr*p! I'll take that as a fairly good sign that I shouldn't bother watching any of it.
