  • I know like it. But I don't think it promotes or encourages teen pregnancy in anyway.

  • I think it's kinda entertaining, lol. Then again, I'm pregnant and love to watch ANY show about pregnant women/girls. You're right, though...I bet it does give a lot of the dumber teenage girls the idea that it's easier to be a mom than it really is.:)

  • I have never watched and refuse to just because of the concept.

    Reality TV has really gone to crap. It used to be decent, but then came Jon and Kate and the Duggars.... I guess families got boring and they had to go with unwed teen mothers.

  • it bothers me too, I feel that some of those episodes made it seem hard, where others made it seem like a way to get out of parents house and live with boyfriend. if I was 16 and hated my mom, and watched that show, it might have giving me an idea to get pregnant just so I could move in with my little boyfriend, even IF i new ho hard it would be.

  • I have watched the show and actually if the girls watching it were smart they would see that either the girls have no baby daddy or the daddy is with them and all they do is fight because they realize that being a parent and being a "real relationship" is harder then they thought. After that baby is born reality hits hard. I really love the ones though that think that they can have the same friends and normal life like they did before the baby.WRONG!!!

  • Its suppose to do the opposite. It shows teens how hard it is to have a kid when your still a child yourself. i think its a good show, and i hope something like that is on when my kids get to be a certain age. It may make the talk easier if i had something to show them. jmo.
