MTV's Teen Mom

People think that when TV shows do things about teen pregnancy or teen sex that it glamorizing it when what they are really doing is trying to send a message. Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant are showing people that it is way too hard to be a teen and an adult at the same time. Even at the end of the segment it shows the girls doing like a confession video diary talking about their journey through their pregancies. Every single one of them says the same thing which is the fact that it is a struggle taking care of a baby at such a young age and that people should wait until they are a lot older to have kids. Farrah from the 1st Teen Mom series even made a statement on twitter about Kourtney Kardashian being pregnant for the 2nd time and she metioned that Kourtney didn't learn anything from the MTV show. Kourtney responded by saying that she is not a teenager, she is a 32 year old women that has her life in order, but what Farrah was trying to say is the fact that being a single mother is way harder than it looks. Now for a teenager to tell a grown women that, that has to be a clue that motherhood isn't all fun and games. It is something to deal with the rest of your life.
