Why do so many TV shows have horrible things happen to babies?!?

I used to love watching dramas on tv, especially crime dramas. Now it feels like every time I turn on the tv, the show is about something horrible happening to a baby or young child. I can't even read a fiction novel without encountering that! Every since having my ds, I just can't handle that sort of thing anymore.

  • because it's trying to show reality. Things like that can happen to young children and babies. Decades ago you hardly saw that stuff because people didn't like reality.

  • I know that these things happen, but it seems that this is the MOST SHOCKING thing they can think of, so of course they use it constantly to add drama.
