I think, being a teen mom myself, this show allows people to see many different aspects of teen parents. It's nice that they do not glorify teen pregnancy, but, at the same time, I think they could do without the Jenelle's and Amber's of the teen mom world!

Jenelle irritates me to nooo end...I agree her mom is a little off, but frankly I think her mom is at a breaking point, and pretty much fed up, constantly telling her to do right, when all Jenelle does is wrong...As far as Jenelle goes, she has a lot of growing up to do...She thinks only of herself and NOTHING of her child...She would rather be snuggled up with a warm body then be there for her son and thats just sad...She constantly puts her son in jeopardy..smoking drugs really?? stealing, really?? jail, really?? If she was EVER thinking of her son, it definitely didnt show...and the fact that it continues even when the cameras are off just proves the point that her mom was trying to make...The other girls, with the exception of chelsea's silliness, have only thought of their childrens welfare the entire time...There is a big difference between them and Jenelle...

@Jen they have been doing some research groups since the shows beginning and it has got kids to understand the difficulties being a teen mom and greater steps to avoid getting into such a situation. Also for other teens it got them to open up and better discuss such issues with their partners or parents also a huge step in decreasing teen pregnancy rates.

I LOVE this show.never missed a episode. Janelle's problems started well before she got put on tv. with a mother like her's its no wonder she turned out the way she did.

I don't know Sherri, I think to say this show helps prevent teen pregnancy is rather like suggesting that Jerry Springer helps prevent adultery.

I never miss an episode Teen Mom 1 I never missed an episode and I haven't yet for Teen Mom 2 either. Positively one of my very favorite shows hands down on TV right now.



I also don't think it puts these kids at risk. I think it is a great show to prevent more teenage girls getting pregnant and I love how they don't sugar coat it and make it look easy. Some of these mom's have been amazing mom's Leah, Chelsea, Macy. Some are not as great Jenelle, Amber but none of had it easy.

As far Jenelle it is 100% her mother's fault. That poor kid is doing her best and I don't blame her in the least.

I agree Tah Dula- my daughter may be the only toddler in the world who says "ma'am" (she says it "man" lol). I deman respect from my child and I treat her with respect. If she ever tried to talk to me like that I would come unglued! even as a teenager, I never spoke to my parents like that, as I know Exactly what the consequences would have been.
I really do think it's a case of no respect for one another, and that poor baby is going to grow up the Exact Same Way!
I do think it's sad that Jennelle's mother cannot show her love, and certainly that only creates an even more hostile environment, but as an adult you have to realize that All people should be treated with a certain amount of respect, regardless of how you were raised. Saying, "I act like this b/c my mommy doesn't love me enough" is a totally cop out. You want to act like your grown, then act like you've got some sense.

A lot of the way jenelle treats her mom is on her..if Sydney ever called me a name or yelled at me like that I promise i will jump over the table and plant my foot directly up her tail...please believe how serious I am. Do you think that started when the cameras were switched on...HA..that has been going on for years...my kids down to my 4 year old aren't even allowed to say yeah...it's yes mom, let alone yell at me and call me a b----.....

OMFG Janelle's mother annoys me to no end, and as dysfunctional as Janelle is I cant help but feel a little bad for her, i remember her breaking down one episode saying to her mom that she never tells her that she loves her, it was sorta sad. I think that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Well, her mom is also to blame. She seems to be as much a psychopath as jenelle. Not to mention the fact that she never truly lets her fall on her face. She should have left her sleeping in her car. She should have had her arrested. She never should have let her move back in until the brat sufficiently understood the shit her life would be without her.

you know, the more I think of it the more irritated I get with the adult parents on the show. I mean, lets be realistic here- if they weren't coddling their children they would be forced into behaving more like the adults they think they are. Why are the grandparents watching the babies while the girls are off acting like regular teens? Shouldn't the simple fact that the decided to become mothers negate their social lives? Afterall, I'm 30 and I have very little social life since my daughter was born. Why should these girls be allowed the title of mom but not be expecting to live up to the responsibilities?

I can not believe that they allow these girls on the show. They are so rude and disrespectful. I was a teen mom 13 years ago and I would never ever speak to my parents the way that girl does. I took care of my child, went to school, and work. There was no partying, hanging out, or time to even think about who I was going to date next.
I myself dont much watch the show other than in passing or sister has it on but what I have seen is appalling. The worst part is that these girls get paid for their bad and irresponsible behavior.
The poor babies have their moms running in and out of their lives, the parents are fighting, they may not remember it now, but they wont have to it is all on tape.

Yep sarah i couldnt believe that either i would never talk to my parents like that much less put my hands on my mother!!

people are who they are. If I had camera's on me 24/7 I'd try to show my Best Side, not my Bitch Side.
As for Jennelle in particular, they way that she speaks to her mother is appalling. I would never, never curse at either of my parents. That girl has no respect for anyone, herself and her child included.

Their lives wouldn't be dramatically different if they weren't on the show. This cunt would be a fuck up regardless. That's just what she is. She's going to be in and out of jail. This shit all started long before the show.

[deleted account]

Oh man i love teen momk and 16 pregnant. I dont think it would be better or worse. I mean i kno being in front of the cams can change a person somewhat but for the most part i think they are being who they are. Would Jenelle still have gone to jail mulitple times if the cameras werent around?? yea i think so. I cant stand her she is a terrible mother and daughter. I kno alot of people put down her mother but i dont. I dont agree with how she does things sometimes but i am totally on her side. and i loved how honest she was on the teen mom 2 reunion special when Dr. Drew asked her if Jenelle was hard to love and she said Yes. I thought that was awesome bcause it was so honest. Yes ur supposed to love your kids unconditionally but that doesnt always mean its gonna be easy. I think the son is way better off with the grandma and is lucky that she is there helping Jenelle.

maybe in some ways, but i have to say, i have know ambers and jenelles x 10 and there was no camera on us. I have also known and been like the teen moms kailyn and maci. I kinda feel like these girls probably would have been in some of these situations anyway. Who doesn't know someone who has the grandparents raising their child while they party, or a wild chick that fights all the time. If i had to count the number of times i have seen people in the middle of the street fighting their boyfriends/child's father I'd be out of fingers and toes, or in the street fighting other girls...HA..that was a daily occurrence. I once had front row seats to a mom and her daughter fighting against 4 girls on my block and i knew 2 of the girls at least had children because we were in school together, no camera there either. People can be influenced but i think in alot of cases these people are gonna make the choices they make.

[deleted account]

I"m not saying the show glorifies teen pregnancy but putting children at risk. There is no question that these shows push the young women to make bad choices for both themselves and their children otherwise the ratings would tank.

unfortunately, there are going to be jenelles and ambers. it's a fact, i myself was a teen mom and i think they show very well all sides. kailyn and her son's father remind me of myself and my son's father a little..not the living with etc, but the fact that he wants control and when he doesn't get what he wants he becomes verbally abusive. i myself was working and going to school and if i opened my mouth to say hey, he needs pampers etc.he would hang up on me, ignore my calls, call me names. I kept trying to be civil to him because i figured we needed to communictae because of my son. I got over that really quickly..lol. One day he called me and when he didn't get the answer he wanted he started yelling, i politely hung up on him. he called right back in shock..."did you just hang up on me???"..."sure did, and thats what you will get everytime you want to disrespect me by yelling until we are sending smoke signals to coordinate visitations"...if you want to have a baby after watching people lose friends...which i did, break-up..ehich we did, fight for custody and child support...yep did that too struggle through classes and work with a baby in your lap then there is something deeper going on there. It would make me request a chastity belt until 3 years afterr i graduated college just to sure...

Jenelle pisses me off so bad. You can say what you want about her mom and most is probably true, but she's a little shit. Her mom supported her and her kid and she totally talks like shit to her mom, steals from her.

i can absolutley see where Jenelle gets her attitude and anger, her mom sucks. I feel sorry for that baby even being with his grandma. Jenelle brings alot of the stuff on herself, but her mom does instigate and say awful things to her when they aren't even deserved. The boy is in a lose-lose situation. I think with or without the cameras this girl would have been in trouble, now the whole world knows about it.

[deleted account]

Yeah, people love a train wreck. I feel bad for the kids that are going to see their parents on TV in that way when they grow up.

[deleted account]

Maybe MTV should do a better job at screening the girls they put on the show. Some girls have done very well and matured and are pretty decent parents. But for others, being on TV is the LAST thing they or their poor children need. But I don't think MTV takes the girls' mental state into account. They get whoever will make the ratings go up.

[deleted account]

Yeah, I think this kid is kinda screwed either way. Although, I think he's much better off with his grandma and his mom not in the picture. Sad.

She has a child that is looking up to her-watching everything she does! It amazes me that people act like this when they have kids! And the teen excuse just doesn't fly with me cause I was a young mom and I had a temper on me. Once I had my son I realized it was time to grow up and learn to be diplomatic and mature. Poor kid!

As far as Jenelle goes....well, look at her crappy mother. She might work and take care of Jace and have a nice house, but she is verbally abusive and belligerent. I don't believe that baby is any better off with her other than having a roof over his head.
