Have you ever watched Secret Life of an American Teenager with a teen?

I watch the show with my kids. My teens. I think it is way to explicit for my taste but needs to be discussed. I'm not in the dark with what goes on with teens. Please no bashing one another these are our opinions. Not wrong just different.

  • I've watched it with my niece. That show is RIDICULOUS. The acting is unbearable and the situations don't seem realistic. Teens have sex, but I don't think it goes anything like that. I could be wrong though. I do really enjoy Greek! :P What do you think of the show?

  • I think that the show may be explicit but it can happen.. More teens today are getting pregnant -- look at shows like Teen Mom, 16 & pregnant etc.. It is good for them to know that they can come talk to you about things going on in their lives..

  • well i never watched it with a teen but my goddaughter and i both had watched it and i am still addicted to it. its so lame and addicting like one of the other poster said. i watch it because i watched it from the beginning and its just something to laugh at. its my secret addiction.

  • that is the most unrealistic show ever. its like lifetime, but worse. no one actually talks like that. when i was in high school i didn't constantly obsess over sex and having a boyfriend or my ex-boyfriend. when a girl in my class got pregnant, all the cliques didn't come together to help her raise the baby. the serial dater wasn't a serial dater because he was sexually abused, he was just over-sexed and 16...and we weren't allowed to discuss religion and invite people to church events like grace bowman does. there was no perfect blend of families going through every single possible crisis at the same time.
