Lord of the Flies Island

Where will kids be 200 years from now? What kind of nightmare will our current overprotective, helicopter parent culture produce? Will we become like Gattaca?

In another episode of hit parenting comedy series Dads In Parks, comedian dads Jamie Kaler and Michael Beatrice speculate that today’s daycare, preschool, elementary school, and high school are all useless. Kids need tough love to survive in this harsh world. They need to experience someplace where, as Michael puts it, stuff happens. A cross between Lord of the Flies island and fat camp. The kids that survive come back healthy and have earned the right to continue the species, thereby saving the human race — or, at least, making it better…

Genius? Maybe?
