    I have not posted much lately for personal reasons, but I have to ask is anyone watching this Boys vs Girls on Channel 4, its sickening, bullying at its worst, I can't believe what I have just watched.

    I've been watching it as well, i've now had enough and gone to bed-with my laptop!!
    where are the mentors who are supposed to step in?? these kids are far too young to have been left alone, even for 1 day never mind 2 weeks. TV is getting worse, who ever thought of that one needs shooting..:rolleyes2
    hope all ok Jules :grouphug:

    I think some of them are way to young to be at that house and it's to long a time, but (flame suit on) i do think it proves alot. Children do scream and argue with each other and as one mother said you hear about it but you don't normally see the emotion. It surprised me how little some of them could do for themselves, but how articulate they were...says alot really.

    I was surprised nobody intervened with the fighting though.

    I actually think that wjat you saw with the girls is a typical day at school for kids of this age !!
    I thought it as amusing to see the boys with their dads especially when the one dad started to throw water too .
    I do think though that all the kids should have been taught basic cooking skills b4 been put in there - didnt understand why they had to starve??

    I didn't watch it. Someone from Channel 4 was on This Morning yesterday, and it seemed like it was just another Channel 4 controversial programme, and the papers were saying it was almost like Big Brother with kids - I'm glad I didn't watch it

    :hug: I hope you're Ok Jules

    I watched it and it was shocking. That mum who wasnt going to let her son leave disgusted me, kept trying to force him to stay when he clearly just wanted to go home.

    I saw the last few minutes of the show,and I agree it was revolting.
    The children's behaviours was appalling as for the fighting :sad2:

    Hope your ok Jules.

    I saw some trailers for it and they talked about it on BBC breakfast the other day, it seemed a pointless programme to me.
