Has anyone seen 16 and Pregnant or Teen Mom on MTV?
16 and Pregnant depicts the lives of five 16 year olds while pregnant.
Teen Mom depicts their lives when their children are six months old.
They both show the struggles of being a teen mom.
Do you think these types of shows are encouraging or discouraging teen pregnancy? Do you think some teens are just trying to get pregnant to maybe on the MTV show?
I read somewhere that one of the girls on the show had an income of about $250,000 last year. the large amount of income was what she earned from being on the show. This was made public when she went to court for domestic violence charges against her boyfriend.
What do you think?
