I guess this dates me, but does anyone remember an educational T.V. program back in the late 70s or early 80s that I believe was called, "Think About" and had an episode where a boy wished he could be like his baby brother and not have all of the responsibilities he had at his own age?
I remember being showed this in elementary school, as we regularly watched this program. The program was intended to encourage independent thinking about ideas and spur discussion on logic and reason.
Anyhow, I remember there this episode where a boy is frustrated with all the responsibilities he has and wishes he could be like his baby brother. He is frustrated with all of the chores he has to do and the things that others expect of him.
Somehow, magically, he gets his wish. It then shows him (in the form of his baby brother) becoming a baby, but he still has his own thoughts as a young teenager.
He is placed in a high chair and is being fed baby food. In the short video, he eventually comes to the conclusion this isn't such a great idea as he has to eat baby food instead of the steak that the rest of the family is eating. Eventually, he returns to his own age and decides that responsibilities aren't such a bad thing.
I remember watching this video as an elementary student and already having ab/dl desires at the time, being fascinated with this concept and yet scared that others might discover my secret that I wanted to be like the boy in the video.
I am curious if anyone else has ever seen this video and/or they experienced these thoughts/feelings -- Or if others experienced a similar experience with other clips / video stories.
