Caring for mechanical dolls shows teens what parenting is really like.
Bridget McCormack was glad her “newborn” was wearing a sweater as she got ready to bring her baby home. For a spring afternoon there was a definite chill in the air. Plus, the LHS senior said, the little pink sweater was really “cute.” But no matter how adorable the baby clothes, McCormack would discover the parenting ahead challenging. “You find yourself catching vomit as a parent,” Principal Mark Stern told a health class with the unusual homework assignment -- taking care of the infant overnight. Senior health classes have focused on pregnancy, childbirth and parenting this quarter, with students caring for a mechanical doll programmed to mirror the needs of a real baby. In the process they learned how much work is involved in parenting…

These five 40-somethings, all Livingston High School grads, are enjoying substantial artistic careers.
