 ‘Old Enough’ Generates Parenting Debate, Latest Netflix Sensation
 이** (jean)



Japanese reality show “Old Enough” is the latest streaming sensation that follows toddlers running errands without their parents. 



Joe Fryer: Introducing the concept to an American audience and sparking plenty of debate. The little boy in the squeaky shoes is just under 3 years old and embarking on a mile-long parent free journey. He walks along this busy road before arriving at the grocery store where he's tasked with buying food and flowers. And then returns home, his first errand complete. The show is called "old enough" with an exclamation point, though some might argue a question mark is more appropriate. It’s generating all kinds of discussion. >> I mean, if raised my kids in bubbles and I protected them and I put up some guardrails, but I would not do this. Joe Fryer: Japan is very different than the U.S. neighborhoods are more pedestrian friendly, and the culture is more trusting of kids. In japan, parents chaperon their 10 and 11-year-olds on just 15% of trips compared with 65% hear. One episode shows a 3-year-old crossing streets on her own to deliver her dad's lunch to his job. Another shows a toddler navigating public transport. On social media, newfound fans are calling the series adorable, sweet, and the most wholesome thing I’ve ever seen. Some parenting experts think American audiences can learn from the show. Lenore Skenakzy: It’s a little nerve racking to let your kids go but when you do, they will just impress you. Joe Fryer: There are people who are critical of this. They say this is irresponsible. We have crime in America. Our neighborhoods are not laid out the same way. What do you say to that? Lenore Skenakzy: If you're telling kids that everything they do they're incompetent, they're in danger, watch out, they need us all the time. That might explain why kids are so anxious and depressed. Joe Fryer: Old enough to take many steps to keep the kids safe with camera crews and safety teams always nearby. When darkness falls on one girl, the crew intervenes, lighting her way home. Netflix recently dropped 20 episodes ranging in length from 7 to 20 minutes. They’re short episodes. It did not release any stats about the show's popularity. If it is popular might producers in America try to create something similar here? One challenge, of course, would be finding a place safe enoughto actually do it. >> Hmm. >> Depends where you live. >> Gadi said he watched it, and he said they don't have a big camera crew. The child is not aware that there is somebody following them. >> But they're watching the kids. >> When we were kids, I was about 7 years old, my parents would send us to goody's luncheonette with a note, please give al a pack of cigarettes. >> Oh, really? >> And they were doing this. >> The good old days. >> That was the good old days. >> Times have changed. >> A bit. >> The debate continues on Everyone has an opinion. You can let us know if you would let your kids do something like this. All right.
