What Are Kids Really Like?

By Alexander Russo — September 20, 2007 1 min read

Forty kids left alone in a deserted New Mexico town to fend for themselves. The controversial reality show “Kid Nation” premiered last night, and the first episode sounds like it was sorta interesting: ‘Kid Nation’ shows real side of young relations. “There was a lot of disagreement and strife, and there were a number of moments — when a kid pulled a muscle, when they couldn’t figure out to cook pasta but were desperately hungry, when kids sobbed uncontrollably — that it seemed like an adult should step in. But then the kids figured out what to do, and even if the results weren’t perfect (the first-night’s dinner of macaroni and cheese did not look very appetizing at all), they made it work.”
