I AM still following you and I wasn't on to see the post until now. It pisses me off that she could even have the nerve to say something like that. I DO think it's kind of ridiculous that the pregnancy rate is SO high, but at the same time it's their choice. I mean as long as they're taking care of their baby and doing the right things, let them be. Before I got pregnant I was into drugs and running around with all
the wrong people. since having my son I've really matured and stayed away from all the bad influences I had in my life before. I know some girls who are teen moms that do better then mother's twice their age. People need to stop being so closed minded and grow up.
"While I was at the Today Show this morning I saw a story about a Memphis high school where 90 young female students were either pregnant or have given birth this year! I just couldn’t believe this and I find it so sad and disturbing. It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls. The kids from these shows are all over the news, even on the covers of magazines, and have been become almost like celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize!
When I think back to when I was 16, there is no way I would even have considered having a baby. That thought wouldn’t even have entered my head. Having a baby is one one of the biggest, and most life-changing decisions a person can make and while I’m not saying that no teen is in the position to raise a child, having a baby so young shouldn’t be seen as the trendy thing to do.
Girls, please, think very carefully before you make these kind of decisions. Talk to your family, friends, teachers, and most of all, be careful.”
First off. As a teen mother my self and as a fan of teen mom I think Kim is so full of herself. She did not have the up bringing that most young teens girls had. we all did not live in fancy mansions with nanny’s private schools and summer camps to keep us out of trouble. And we do not idolize the teen moms on that show, if anything we can relate and understand their situation. Most teen girls cannot relate to a 30 sum thing year old fashionista that dates footballers, travels the world, fashion shoots, etc etc etc. Kim’s show promotes herself . HERSELF AS A PRODUCT. Teen mom is a show about showing the struggles of real teen moms that millions of girls face each day dealing with the day to day issues of being a teen mother. It also shows young teen girls that having a baby is not just something behind close doors. It brings a lot of the “ugly” side of teen pregnancy [what they don’t tell you in school or warn you about]to light. and Kim is not a role model herself! they way she got famous is not a good thing for teen girls to look up to.
teen mom sends out a positive message to young teen girls! it shows the good ugly bad worse and struggles of having a baby. I have overcome so much since having my child. graduated 4.0 on time with my class, employed not on any public assistance married to my baby’s father. stop putting down teen mothers, just because they are on the covers of magazines that you could have been on… sorry you just lost a fan………….
