Brat Camp

Ok, I had heard about the TV show Brat Camp and decided to watch a little.

Kate of Small Dead Animals and Michelle Malkin watched it as well.

My thought: holy crap, they're doing group therapy and then showing it on national TV. The usual presumption is what is said in the room stays in the room, and that's usually explicitly stated. I'm sure the parents signed waivers, I'm not so sure the kids did. And if they did, it was probably after the experience, not before.

The therapy itself? Eh, we'll see. Apparently, they bring in different adults in response to the kids' actions.

All in all, there have been some exploitive reality TV shows, but this is the worst I can think of.

The exploitation of these children is horrendous. If this show really wanted to come close to "reality", it would involve removing their crappy parents with them to the wilderness and putting them ALL in intensive therapy. The kids could learn how to behave like human beings and the parents could learn one or two rudiments of actual parenting. What stupidity!
