my 16 and pregnant curiousity I have.....

lately this new season it seems like the Moms (of the pregnant teen) are kicking their daughters out more. I find this odd, since, they're getting $$$$$ per episode.

If my teen became pregnant, although I would NOT like the public TV embarrassment of it however, the $$$ MTV would provide could allow a nanny or au pair therefore permitting my child to concentrate on finishing highschool, which so many of the girls seem to be seriously struggling with.

So basically if u have to have a pregnant teenager, isn't it better to get some money for it, rather than struggle, suffer, or kick her out?

  • People who let MTV tape thier pregnant teenage daughters and exploit thier struggles for profit are bad parents.

  • I would never turn my back on my children. Parenting is a struggle, and when a child needs you the most, you dont walk away. But to exploit them and air your personal business for all the world to see, is just not right. Not even for money. Family business staying personal and keeping your pride/dignity is priceless.

  • My mother "kicked" me out and it was the best thing she could of done for me. She helped me secure an apartment but only because I asked. I have never gotten anything handed to me by my parents since I became pregnant. I can proudly say I own two cars, TVs, PS3s...blah blah all on my own, 7 years after being a pregnant teen (twice).

  • I've never watched the show so I wouldnt want to help their ratings. I've never been able to watch more than a few minutes of those shows. The kids made their beds and are laying IN it now with a kid to raise and support. Think of all the parents whom kick the kids out of the house for that every day and are homeless & aborting babies or giving them up cause the parents would not help them? Or the kids run away.

    What ever money they get must not be much and may not get it til after the shows season, as it seems strange to let them suffer now. But for a parent to kick a child out pregnant or with a child is crazy. That mother needs to be there for her daughter to help her through that emotional ride she is on....not deter her. Where are THEIR husbands thru that? How did THEY make it, divorced with kids? SHOW THE DAUGHTER!

  • To kick your pregnanct daughter out of the house seems to me a bit cruel. Mothers should try their hardest in standing by their daughters side and being there for support b/c often times the daddy of the baby chooses to not stick around.

  • maybe the moms are ticked because they aren't getting the cash their pregnant daughters are...I know if I were having MTV come over and film my home life and getting paid my mom would have booted me out to when i was a pregnant teen...hell she had the baby's dad move in because he said he would pay her $200 a month....even though i objected
