I see that someone posted something about this a while ago...but it's a new season. I just wanted to know how some of you felt about the show and the girls on it.
For me, I can relate in a big way since I was a teen mom. But that's as far as it goes for me. I don't exactly like the way Mtv is doing the show and then having Dr. Drew come on like he's some super guy that's going to fix this problem. I don't think the show is focusing enough on how to prevent teen pregnancy, or even how to get help to learn more about it.
All I see is some high school girls that happen to get into this situation and then we have to spend an hour watching them whine about how bad their lives suck because they had sex with no protection. Then mommy or daddy steps in and makes it all better. Where is the fear and anxiety? Where are the "real" people on this show?
I fear that girls around the world are watching this and thinking, 'well, look at them. They got their own show because they got knocked up and they're fine.' You only see the girls go out every night after the baby comes and then mouth off to their parents. That isn't reality. It's good ratings.
