I know this is the sort of TV I hate myself for watching, but I know I will be there at 9 tonight on C4.

One of the brats is a girl who announced to her mother's coffee circle that she had just had sex in a telephone box! OMG!!!!

It is a different camp this time, but still in Utah. Shame, I looked forward to seeing the staff from the last place again. I thought there were amazing, so mellow but so strong and determined. Just wore the little buggers down. Gives me hope for Y9!!!

it should be part of the national curriculum, like an early national conscription

Tempting! I have been known to say that some kids should opt out of education for Y9, and then be taken back into school in y10 when they realise that the world is a hard place and play station games don't grow on trees!

am i the only one who gains pleasure from seeing the kids suffering on brat camp? it makes me howl with laughter!

No, I am a sadist too. I love the way they are sooooooooooo cocky at the start and crumble with the first blister.

But it would seem that the rest of MN are nicer than we are

It is a predictable outcome though i think. Imo the ones with the toughest shells are always the most vulnerable and insecure, which is why they are so aggressive and defensive. Get through that and most of them are ok

Still fun watching them snivel though.

Wow this lot look even worse than last years! There are face there I could slap all day without my arm getting tired!

so if they behave they go home if they dont they have to stay

Is that right?

The first lassie, Jenny, is a piece of work. She's obviously old enough to get a tattoo, consequently, if she were my daughter and calling me a f'ing t**t, she's old enough to find her own place to live. I'd have chucked her out, changed the locks, and called the police if she came back w/her present attitude.

We didn't dare to act that way growing up, b/c we knew our parents would have none of it. They would not have hesitated to throw us out if we disrepected their rules.

lol@ rebel without a clue!

happymerryberries Tue 01-Feb-05 21:26:32

It all seems to be 'I fucking hate you, give me a fiver!'. If they were mine they would have been out looking for a job. No respect, no cash IMHO.

Cant wait to see this lot crunble.

miggy Tue 01-Feb-05 21:28:26

But how do they persuade the kids to go?
Dont understand that at all!

expatinscotland Tue 01-Feb-05 21:38:40

In the States, it's easy enough to 'persuade' them to go - people are considered minors until they are 18, and both the law and the public doesn't look fondly on bratty teens.

Twiglett Tue 01-Feb-05 21:42:54

They're all from families with huge houses for some reason .. spoilt rotten brats

DH and I find it funny that they think they're being so original, gawd it takes me back, I was such a teenage brat

Moomina Tue 01-Feb-05 21:45:34

Hmmm. Lots of hugging and kissing and crying and 'I love you'ing at the airport for kids who supposedly despise their parents...

happymerryberries Tue 01-Feb-05 21:48:17

Don't you all just love the wonderful Alex? She honestly thinks that her poor mother is going to bail her out. Ha, ha, ha.

lou33 Tue 01-Feb-05 22:07:54

dd1 just called me a bitch, so where do i sign her up?

misdee Tue 01-Feb-05 22:08:37

wonder how last years kids are doing?

miggy Tue 01-Feb-05 22:14:04

sad to admit this but Jenny was ominously similar to my dd (5). Sweet, cute and girly, ready to turn on the tears but a steel hearted little madame underneath.
What age do they take them from

My dh was watching the football....grrrrr!
Can't wait for next week. Loved the last series. Electric cattle prods were too good for them.

Hubby and I found ourselves laughing. I teach at an all boys comp. and I see these behaviours all the time. I am getting vicarous pleasure from watching this staff.

We are also currently dealing with a 15 yr old brat of a nephew who would not be living with us if he behaved at home. Hubby is ex-special forces and brooks no nonsense. We have had pretending to be sweet, innocent and helpful, cons, lies, theft, sullen, stubborn, stroppy, tears, blackmail, threats of running away & suicide, reported to social services for bullying (why ARE we doing this to ourselves?). I think he will join us for the next episode....

IMHO - the problem lies in parents saying YES way too many times.
