TGIF

Another weekend... will be gone in a second.

That was two years ago. Now, with a restless curious itchy-handed boy, weekends are .... non-existent.

Last night, I managed to sit my ass on the couch for a one-hour TV programme called Child Of Our Time. It is a documentary on child development and the quest to answer an age-old question, are we born or made?

In this unique British-based project, 20 babies born in the millenium are observed, and during the 20 years, a massive series of experiments will be conducted to study how genes and environments interact to build a person. The selected 20 babies represent the widest possible range of genetic, social, geographical and and ethnic backgrounds.

It is fun to watch even when you're not a parent, because generally, it is a documentary about life. It is THE reality show.

I will talk more about the show next time, or you may check it out here

Have a good weekend!

Hmm. Interesting. I wonder what the babies will feel 20 years after? Also interesting to know that the experiment will only last for 20 years, or a year short before the babies would have the legal right to say no to the experiment.
