I love it. When I was young, I hated how the adult world assumed I was incapable of being trusted, being resourceful, being creative, being positive. Here’s a show that says, look, kids are really really amazing human beings. They have a valuable perspective on life that you no longer have. Just look at them.
I don’t give a fig about the controversy; the parents knew the risks and the kids are alright. I’m hooked, and I respect every kid out there, facing challenges both internal and external. Some of these kids are more mature than the folks I see on Survivor. Some of these kids are more mature than the people supposedly complaining to protect them.
Kids heal. Adults, apparently, just die.
