I don't have time to watch much television but I did catch a trailer for CBS's new series Kid Nation. This show is based on 40 kids in their own town with no adults. They cook, clean, run the services and have a working town counsel to air grievances.
This show looks very intriguing and sometimes very emotional but child development experts are already attacking the show and trying to have it blocked from being aired. They argue that putting children into this situation too young can have psychological effects later in life.
I'm no expert but the trailer looks exciting and I love this idea. Children are still innocent and have not yet been polluted by many of life's pressures and expectations. They still dream and still believe in making a difference.
