Synopsis by Sarah Sloboda

The Canadian television series Degrassi Junior High has been praised regarding the extent to which it deals realistically with the issues of adolescence. A continuation of Kids of Degrassi Street, which was set in a racially and economically diverse city neighborhood, the program became popular for its upfront presentation of emotional issues. In this episode, Spike goes to child-care classes to prepare for taking care of her baby. One assignment involves taking care of an egg, as if it were a real child, and when Shane babysits the egg, Spike's emotions about responsibility become obvious.
