I'm a Weird Mom
My son has a friend whose mother is a nurse that works with teens to teach the dangers of drugs and alcohol. She invited my son to come along on a trip to the county morgue to see an autopsy being performed. I know it might be weird, but I encouraged him to go. He has talked about going in to medicine, so I think this would be a great opportunity for him. If he doesn't faint, he might just learn something. :) I know it's a gross topic, but I also watched "mortician school" on television, and really learned alot. It helped me when I was asked to help dress a deceased member of our congregation. Death is part of life, just the part most people don't like to think about. I will be interested to see my son's reaction.
