16 and Pregnant? What?!

April 1, 2011 autumnhedrick

 I hate to admit it but I love watching Teen Mom. It is like a train wreck that I don’t want to look away from. With that being said I believe Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant majorly glamorize teen pregnancy. While the struggles of the teen moms are shown throughout the show it is unrealistic how they are put on the cover of a magazine like celebrities. Many articles in gossip magazine claim that the teens make thousands of dollars per episode.
I feel like if the glamorization of this issue doesn’t stop, more and more teens will be getting pregnant. Teenagers are already very influenced by what they see and hear and these shows aren’t any different. I know in my old high school there are more teenagers pregnant today than there have ever been before. Could it be because of shows like this or for another reason? Hopefully something will change soon…
