As an American, I think the photos of the American kids' rooms and the stories about their lives are just as horrible. On the one hand you have the rich, overacheiving kids - the one with all the trophies on display reminds me of Violet Blue from Willy Wonka - and the kid who spends his free time studying his finances on the bank website contrasted by the red-kneck kid with the shot gun and the little girl who is living in poverty. Not one of these kids are what I would think of as having a "normal" childhood.
