I'm Appaled!I can't believe this sort of group exists.
Everybody is intitled to their own opinions sure but the fact that someone may be planning on becoming a teen mom is absurd to me. Shows like "16 and Pregnant" or "Teen Mom" are aired on television not to glamourize teen pregnancy but to do the exact opposite. But then again, young girls may be blind to this.
Why else would the show take time to tell you "Teen pregancy is 100% preventable"!!!!
Sure babies are cute when they're young but being a mom is a lot of responsibility. Teens always want things, look for drama and any way to stand out but doing so by having a baby shouldn't be the answer. You have your whole life ahead of you, why the hell are you rushing things! It's not only selfish to bring a baby into this world knowing you won't be able to provide for it or give it all the attention it deserves but totally narcissistic. I say this because teens often argue with their parents and look for any way to proove to them that they're responsible and able to take care of themselves. Well what better way of doing so by having a kid. It's your kid, the minnie you and not Bob or Jill can tell you otherwise. You're suddently in charge of someone, you're suddently in control of somebody else's life and as a teen who doesn't want that? Until reality hits you in the face and you realize that it's impossible to care for a child when you're still a child.
Now I'm not saying Teen Moms don't figure it out and love their kid. Of course they do. But what I'm saying is that I find it completely wrong to aspire to be a Teen Mom and unfortunately we have the media to thank for that, yet again...
