WYR Teen Mom or Secret Life of the American Teenager?

I prefer Secret Life. I think it's slightly more believable (even though Teen Mom is a "reality show") and honestly less dramatic.

  • Secret Life makes a way better drinking game (every time they say 'sex' take a drink --there's a few episodes anyone attempting this would have died)... but I prefer Teen Mom, slightly.

    I mildly object to the exploitation of the children --and their dramatic, uncivilized stress-- in Teen Mom, but at least the writing is more believable than Secret Life.

  • I watched Secret Life once and thought "OMG, could they have packed any more after school special-esque cliches about sex into this show?!"... but I was very entertained lol.

    Teen Mom just pisses me off. Most of those mothers are terrible.

  • Never seen "Secret Life".
    I know first hand that "Teen Mom" encourages young teen girls to be careless about safe sex!!! and view teen parenthood as something much more glamorous than it is in reality.
    All of the girls I know in this age range are no where NEAR ready for parenthood.
    The existence of this show is in a way "rewarding" them for their shoddy choices. Often times causing painful/stressful situations to spin out of control.
