    Default Fake baby to prevent teenage pregnancies

    Our pediatrician told us today that his teenage daughters received in school a fake baby that cries at all moments of the day either to be fed, change diaper or whatever else is needed.

    The idea is to make teenagers realize that having a baby is my necessarily nice, especially not when you are 14 or 16 and want to hang out with children.

    I only hope it does have as a side effect that the teenagers won't have children when they are older either.....

    i think crying is the least of the problems. one can just use ear plugs. i can sleep through house alarm going off, let alone a crying kid. the fake baby should come with "suck money" function with a teenager finding herself sans cash, phone minutes and salon allowance.

    The doll dies if you don't attend it and then they get a bad grade.

    it's more of a punishment than for parents whose kids die in "house accidents" in DR.

    It's a First Lady's Office initiative for high school kids. I wonder how they measure its success.

    I sow that fake baby, the female son of a friend of mine in the capital had it when I visited him last year.
    It's like a weekend homework.

    The baby is nice, it has many sensors, temperature, sounds around him, movements, accelerometers, it needs care as a real baby.
    It get hungry, it cries, you have to feed it, and change clothes. It has his own bed. You have to respect its needs and its times.

    All you do with this babe is recorded and is downloaded by usb connection at school, so the evaluation can be on real datas.
    It automatically switch off at 22.30 to let the family and the student sleep.

    I do not know why they are doing this, but the baby seems like real.

    Sounds more like practice for the real thing.

    No, the doctor specifically said it was to teach them that having a baby at that age is not nice. By the way, it didn't switch off in the night he said.
