  • I agree, I love "Teen Mom" and "16 and Pregnant", because they don't glamorize the issue. They show all the things those kids have to give up, all the hardships they go through, and I think teenagers who watch those shows will think twice about having unprotected sex...

  • I think the show itself is good because it isn't glamorizing motherhood. In that show, you actually see the things that those young mothers have to deal with. Not only taking care of the child, but relationships, their parents, going to school, working, etc.

  • In regards to my personal viewing preferances.

    They are "bad".. I think reality tv in general sucks and I do not watch it.

  • I think they're good. They make it look HARD. If I were a teen girl, I wouldn't want any of those girls' lives.

  • They're good, Amber needs some help. I'm 25 w/almost 3 year old-it's tuff.

    Nobody is a perfect mom. We're all perfectly imperfect.

  • i think its good becuz they can see what all these girls have to go through. But only if its real not the one on abc family.

  • I don't do reality shows either but I did see a bit of one episode. they do hi-lite how hard it is. But at the same time we live in a society where people seem to be willing to do ANYTHING to get on tv. So if you end up with teenagers possibly trying to get preggers to be on tv then it's definitely bad. I think if people want to watch reality tv they should turn on the news. That's reality =)
