In the Intro to Human Science class Mrs. Benne has the Freshmen taking care of babies. She says that “It will teach them the real difficulty and patience of being a caregiver to a real baby.”
They have functions of a real baby: they cry, dirty their diapers, drink a bottle, burp and coo. The babies are programmed to stay for 36 hours with the freshmen over the weekend. The freshmen “parents” will have to take them home and the babies will have to accompany them wherever they go. The students also must wear a censor that won’t let them leave the baby. If the frosh don’t take good care of their babies, the babies just might die. Luckily, this is just for practice and the babies won’t really die.
