Teen Mom in no way glamorizes teen pregnancy. If you actually watch the show, you’ll see that what Kirstin is saying is true. I think most of if not all of the girls on that show are not happy and if they could, they would turn back the clock and do things differently and not have children yet.

just my opinion

I don’t think it makes being a single teenage mother look like fun AT ALL. one of the girls has friends who want to all move in together, but not her cause she would have to bring a kid and that would be no fun. They are all struggling with school/work, one of them never finished high school, most of them have to be concerned about their kids’ fathers being totally useless, or completely uninvolved. I am 25 and I have three kids with my husband, and I would go freaking bananas if I had to do all that on my own, ontop of being young and still feeling like there was so much to experience…but they will probably never get to.

Dirty diapers? Waking up every two hours to a screaming baby? How in the heck is that glamorous?!? I think this show is the best birth control out there. It tells teens (Like myself) “If you screw up and get pregnant, this what you’re in for, babe.” Reality check, channel 4!

I don’t think it does glamourize Teen pregnancy. I think it shows the struggles and joys and up and downs of it.
