Were you a mom at 16?

I'm 22 years old and expecting my second child. I had my first son when I was 16 years old and I have seen the mtv show 16 and pregnant and it absolutely pisses me off. I had to face hardships don't get me wrong but I think I've done pretty good. An these girls on here just absolutely piss me off. They are so selfish. How do you feel about this show and how did you do with your pregnancy

  • I was not a mom at 16-but the show does piss me off, I remember one in particular, it was a single girl living with her mom, and she threw a MASSIVE fit over the fact her mom wouldnt buy her a car, what was it a Ford something or another-
    show makes me SO angry!

  • I was not a mom at 16, but I think the hardships the girls deal with are right on. Some are spoiled, but there are some good episodes. The bottom line is that taking care of a baby isn't easy, and usually the girl gets "stuck" taking care of the baby while the guy gets to go free.

  • I'll be 18 in august.. and I'm 26 weeks pregnant.

    The show doesn't really piss me off. It just makes me think about things.
    Most of the girls on that show are spoiled rotten and are still sheltered by they're parents. Obviously not ready to be mommy's. It's all just very stupid..

  • I wasn't preggo at 16... but i find the show hard to watch. I think a lot of reality shows are put-ons anyway... lot of drama for the camera... It's gotta be hard regardless... but I really do think it's a lot of put-on for the 30min of fame.

  • The show glorifies being a teen mom... it doesn't show just how difficult being a first time mom is.. those girls are spoiled.. the fathers are immature and selfish. i feel sorry for the babies

  • I was a mom at 20, waaayyyy too young for me!
    The show is ridiculous! I watched one episode and NEVER watched another.

  • i was a mom at 17. even though some girls on that show actually were 17 when they had their babies, the same age i was, they seem so young to me. i guess i matured earlier than they did. but i am very proud of myself and my husband and how we have raised our daughter. i just hope 16 and pregnant doesn't encourage more girls to TRY and get pregnant young. i was on bc, but kyli happened anyway and we dealt with it. we most definitely were not trying.
