My cousin is taking that class in high school this year where you take care of a fake baby that cries and you have to find out what is wrong. She is mainly taking it because they also teach CPR and first aid and she wants to get certified. They had the class when I was in high school, it was optional and I had a real baby, my son, to take care of in high school, so there wasn't a point for me. Does anyone have a child who did this project or did you do it in school? How close does the fake baby get to simulating an actual child's needs?
