Reality TV show borrows babies
A Big Brother-style show - with babies being 'donated' to teenage couples - is causing outrage in Germany.
In 'Adults on Trial', teenagers will be 'lent' a baby for 4 days and will be judged on how well they do as parents. They will have to carry out all parental duties - feeding, nappy-changing, comforting a crying child during the night and so on.
However, there has been shocked outrage voiced by many parents, government ministers and the Federation for the Protection of Children.
Using children like guinea pigs is unacceptable, according to critics. However, the television company have said that the children will be constantly monitored by psychologists and that the real parents will be in a near-by house and can watch their child, live, on monitor throughout the day and night.
The first episode will be shown on 3 June.
