The halls of CHS became flooded with “babies” by Dr. Broyles’s Psychology class on on October 29th.

“I found my inspiration on the internet and thought this would be a fun activity,” Doctor James Broyles said.

The steps which lead into the project included students studying and understanding how children grow into who they are. The class learned how motor skills, along with much more, are developed by children.

“Prior to the project, we played games and with toys which showed us how they help children intellectually,” senior Jenny Huichapa said.

The class of 19 students confused teachers and students on Monday by caring around baby dolls or teddy bears to represent a trial run in the life of a parent.

“I first thought it was just weird kids carrying around dolls,” senior Norriel Barnes said.

The first set of criteria was to name your child. Requirements for the project included conducting a journal of your babies activities throughout the day, such as naptime, when they received their milk or why and when the child cried. A more realistic requirement consisted of researching prices of necessities for a baby: a stroller, a crib, a playpen and a car seat.

“You are pregnant for nine months so you have time to prepare,” English teacher Sydney Brookshire, who adventured into parenthood six months ago said. “My baby shower helped a lot, but with everything else I waited until it was on clearance.”

The students will continue the project until November 5th. At the conclusion of the project, students will have experienced a brief glance into parenthood.

“At first I was kinda confused about the project,” senior Kaitland Anderson said, “but now that its coming to an end it was truly an eye opener of how hard having a baby is.”
