I watched Tyra the other day and wondered am I the only one who thinks it it absolutely INSANE, for these 12-16 year olds who wanted to get pregnant, and some who were even trying?! The reasons at BEST were because "I love babies, babies are cute." OMG!! I was a teen mother and am 21 now, my daughter is 2. I really wanted to know everyone elses opinion about this because it really drives me nuts that these girls think that the guy will stay with them and it will be so easy to raise a kid. I'm really thinking about starting an advocacy group to help stop teen pregnancy. Aso, does anyone know how to do that?
-- I am in no way saying that teen mothers are bad mothers and such, that makes me just as upset, but honestly, I would have waited to have my daughter, at least a couple of years. These girls are so childish in saying some of the things they said. Maybe you can youtube it and see for yourself.
My daughter is a gift, but if I would never ever tell a 13-14 year old that it would be okay for them to get pregnant. And half these girls on this show thought they would just live in their parents' houses and collect welfare! I'm sad that Tyra didn't actually bring teen mother's onto the show who had already had their kids and talk to those little lunatics!
Anywho, just wondering what others thought, not really a question!
