Stories about kids who actually want their parents looking out for them.
- We play excerpts from the documentary film Troop 1500. In the film, girl scouts from an Austin, Texas, troop visit their mothers, all of whom are in prison. The girls interview their moms, sometimes asking alarmingly direct questions, and videotape the sessions. The film was directed by Ellen Spiro and Karen Bernstein of Mobilus Media, and aired on PBS.
