  • Pretty much but the ones that have they're rich parents pay for everything is a joke!! None of those girls have any business of being a mother! I think they use the show to become celebrities though and go make appearances at clubs and act like idiots. I was married and got pregnant at 19. Still married and happy.

  • I think it can be helpful to other teen trying to get pregnant because she could see ehat circumstances and problems she's about to get into.

  • For some reason I think they purposely cast emotionally unstable moms, or those with whack baby fathers. idk why, but I think they try to make it seem worse than it is.

    for instance. all of the moms are breaking down cause this or that happened. Umm wtf did they think this was, a babysitting gig, no, these are life decision. You won't wake up and magically get to be a kid again, not until the babies are grown and gone, and probably not even then.

    I just feel like they got a lot of support from family, more than I had, they do next to nothing, in regards to their futures, with a few being the exception, and it's like a Soap Opera.

    But I must say I am really proud of Allie, she seems very strong willed, the dad is just so young. Jordan also is very real, being a SAHM can be emotionally hard. ANd a couple others from this season.

  • yes i do, especially to all the young moms out there that are pregnant it gives them an idea of what it can be like or show them ways of how not to be like when the baby comes.also it can make them think twice about there situation.

  • I was a teen Mom pg. at 15. (Have never seen the show.) Just don't think anything glorifying being a teenager pregnant can be very positive.

  • yes. I don't think it glorifies it.. like a lot of people think.. I think it shows what they go thru pretty accurately. And each of the girls on the show are different.. so it shows different scenarios.
