This year's Child Studies 11 students are the first-time parents of two new "Ready-or-Not Tots"! Students take turns caring for the electronic baby for a period of 3 days and 3 nights. The purpose of this project is to provide students with a realistic idea of the demands of parenting. The "baby" provides programmed tending events that are unpredictable to the student. It cries, coos, burps, must be fed and have its diaper changed periodically throughout the day and night. This is truly an "eye-opening" experience!
