Hello all

From watching tons of cartoons, it seems to be that all of the ones that depict high-school life have one specific anecdote in common:

Each student is given a robotic baby doll that they have to take care of for a week, as preparation for adult life.

Question:
Does this actually happen in American high schools? I've never heard of this in real life. Is this just coincidentally a shared plot between every cartoon about teenagers ever drawn?

Robotic baby doll, is it some sort of more real life baby wee-wee?

it used to at least, I never had to go through it praise the Lord.

Are you ****ing serious?

It just seems so creepy to me...having to take care of a noisy robot and treat it as if it were your own child...

I know what you mean. And one of them always loses the baby/destroys it.

They used to do it here, but people kept stealing them and using them in sweatshops.

And that's why Hagstrom are so cheap.

No, Hagströms are cheap because they are now owned by some American who lowers the quality standards for lower manufacturing costs.

The old, vintage Hagströms are legendary.

Yeah I knew kids who had to do that in christian ethics. And I don't see what's so creepy about it, they're simply just slightly more technologically advanced dolls for kids. You know, it ****s and pees and you have to feed it and make it not cry or you FAIL. My buddy punted it and somehow managed to pass the course with like an 80.

Any suggestions?

Nah, I didn't get to do it, I miss out on all the fun.

I DID get to put a condom on a cucumber though.

So that'll come in handy, if I'm ever giving lessons on safe sex to vegetables.

yeah we have them at my school (in Canada), they're actually quite realistic and keep a log of what happens to it and how it was treated, so the teacher can asses the student on how well of a parent they can be

It's quite popular here in Canada I think. So popular in fact, this is the first time I've ever heard anyone question the idea.

It's typically done in Home Economics or some equivalent course. In my school, it's a specific social studies department course called Family Studies.

My bassist (blonde guy) showed up late the day they chose babies, and he took care of a black one for that semester.
