I am so embarrassed to admit that I just watched the first three episodes of Kid Nation and I really enjoyed it. It is just as exploitative as I thought it would be, but it is also surprisingly endearing and even a little inspiring. Anyone else watch this show?
Aside from being entertaining, the show reminded me that every kid is already an expert in their own way, and that diversity is absolutely necessary to build a functioning community. It also reminded me that I can learn a lot from hanging around kids. I wonder what the kids on the floor will teach me tomorrow…
