like teen pregnancy is being glorified these days? I mean, when I was growing up I only heard of one teenager being pregnant in high school, and yet MTV has now 2 seasons of Teen Mom. It boggles the mind as to how these girls going out and getting pregnant has become a popular television show. I admit that it shows the struggles of being a teen mother, as well as the difficulties of balancing motherhood and school, but instead of showcasing teen mothers, why doesn't MTV do a show about college moms? Or single moms? Or working moms? Or something that deals with the majority of the populace. I did my research and teen pregnancies are declining since the 1950's when it was common for girls to be married at the first sign of menstration. If these occurances are decreasin (and have been decreasing before MTV put out the first season of Teen Mom) then what's the point of advertising this phenomenon?

I don't really like the fact more teens are being moms now days but me and my daughter watched the MTV teen mom and after watching it she did not want to have a baby she said she said she likes her freedom to sleep and do what she wants with out someone else to worry about. So that show did my daughter good but a friend of mine watched it with her daughter and now he daughter wants to be a mom. It just goes to show you that each teen that watches the show gets different points. I am just glad my daughter got the point of how hard it is to be a teen mom.
