Teen Mom makes being a young mom look glamorous?


Personally, I think in some ways that it does. It seems like most of the cast from Teen Mom drive nice cars and have a lot of nice things. They get paid quite a bit of money and are able to do things that most regular teen moms can only dream of. On the other hand, they do show many struggles. Even though I don't like Amber they do a great job of showing her struggles with addiction and raising Leah. They also are good about showing Maci having a hard time juggling it all. People can also see how hard it can be to be a single parent by watching Farrah, though she has a huge attitude.


What do you guys think?

I think no. I say that because it shows there struggles..like Maci it isn't just about her juggling everything she is also dealing with Ryan and getting him to agree to things, like pre k. And there is huge speculation on what the moms make. From what I heard the make 50-60,000 a season and that is it. Also people like Maci may have a lot of help from there parents. And you see with Catelynn and Tyler they work and are trying to make there way through college. I don't think its glamorized, I think they show the good and the bad..just like there is with any mom.

I think that some of the girls stories glamorize being a teen mom. But some of them don't especially Amber's story. Maci and Chelsea would make me deff want to be a teen mom haha. My life isn't at all how those girls have it haha

I don't think so. Why the hell would anyone want to be like these girls???? (ESPECIALLY that idiot Amber!) It shows how life is if you have a kid. Just because you are a teen mom doesn't mean you are going to live in a box your whole life. (unless you are Janelle.)

I think NO I believe every episode shows proof of real struggles that teen moms really go through

Haha janelles box is a metal one too. But seriously I don't think it does. I mean honestly everyone of those girls from teen mom and teen mom 2 all have soo many struggles emotionally and mentally they have to deal with that there's noo way anyone would try to have a kid based off of the show.

 I don't watch the show but only a few times. I think being a teen mom has struggles and they do show that but I mean it is a tv show not everything is real so I don't know.
