Teen Mom’s Yearbook Photo Banned

Posted on: 6:06 pm, May 2, 2013, by updated on: 09:21am, May 3, 2013

A picture of a high school senior in North Carolina, holding her son, has been banned from the yearbook, according to WGHP.

The school invited seniors to include a prop in their senior picture that represents an achievement or something that best represents them.

Some chose baseballs and family pets. Caitlin Tiller, 17, chose her son, Leelin.



Tiller said the school told her the picture was being pulled because it promoted teen pregnancy.

Nice prop lol. I think thats part of the problem, kids thinking babies are props or toys and not something permanent that will turn into a child and be at least an 18 year commitment.

he's so cute. I think it's ridiculous. I mean nowadays it's not shocking like it was back in the day for a high school girl to get pregnant. I mean, come on, TEEN MOM MTV anyone. We can't not say it's NOT happening.

Great pic but I wouldn't want my teen seeing this and thinking that being a teen mom is cool or a baby is  a prop..

I think it would have been different if they had not been asked to bring in something that "represents an achievement or represents who they are."  If she had just wanted her school picture taken with her baby, okay, I would see the issue, but the school kinda (and literally) asked for it.

This, plus she is there getting senior pics taken, indicating she is an active participant in school and has plans to graduate and its not like this is a shock, her classmates all know she has a baby!
I'm curious, if the father of the child is also a student, and if he posed with some sort of sports equipment or other prop, doesn't that just promote covering up the issue? Like let's just pretend he is nothing more than what this prop represents and not a teen father.
