    And about time too!!!! People on these 'reality' programmes may be naive or just pushed by their PR companies, but such exposure is psychologically dangerous. Surely this has been common sense for years.......oh! I forgot, common sense is dead......"No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, life isn't always fair, and maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting (adults, not children, are in charge)........anon
