  • I have watched it and only a couple were smart ones. The one I liked was the one who did the good thing and picked adoption.
    Most of them make it all fun and games. Same as their friends thinking it is nothing.

  • i had a friend that had a baby at 13 years old. i dont think she thought it was a joke. I dont think mtv's purpose was to make it look like it was cool...but then again a lot of 16 year olds and their friends are still kids..and it is quite common, so a lot of people dont make a big deal out of it. Also, back in the day it was completely normal and accepted.

  • Really? Because I don't feel like they make it seem "cool" at all! I watch this show with my 13 yr old son so he can see first hand how difficult it is to be a teen parent. MTV is not trying to make it seem anything but real.

  • You really have to follow up and watch "teen mom" too. That is when these girls lives really start falling apart. I watch every episode with my daughter and discuss it.

  • turst me the show DOES NOT glamorize it in the slightest! I bet it makes teens scared to get preggo so early!!!

  • I think that it shows other teens that there are other people that they can relate to. Maybe it will help other teens to not make the same mistakes.
