I've been watching some episodes of 16 AND PREGNANT on MTV.COM. These are my first impressions as I watched these episodes.
Maci is immature...so so young....riding a quad when your ready to burst...are you kidding me?!? Her "man," Ryan, is just a "boy" and sex was just fun at the time. He's obviously not ready, willing, nor able to be a real daddy. He's still into playing with his friends. She's upset because mom and dad won't pay for her dance class. She says she's an overachiever....all good if you don't get pregnant at 16. Ryan is so flat...no emotion in his voice....Ugghhh...I am so frustrated watching this show.
Farrah broke up with the babies daddy because he was jealous and immature...but he was great enough to have sex with. Her parents saying you shouldn't have anything to do with the X...are you kidding me...now is too late to be a parent that has rules....I have to quit cheer because everyone is mean to me...has a new boyfriend who stands her up...oh poor her. I'm glad Farrah's mom said..."I need my sleep, no I can't help you much at night." She wants to be independent....are you kidding me...she can't handle things while living at home, how will she handle things on her own? Her mom is too controlling though...she wants to teach her child what to look for in a good relationship.....how about getting to know someone, without sex....grow up, get a job, get married and then have a baby.
I am disgusted! Why in the world would Amber go for this guy Gary...way too old for her....and he "doesn't like condoms." Really that still works....girls still buy that!? "I didn't even want kids" and "I was a total party girl!" Really? Shocker there! Their tight on cash, but Gary buys a PS3?! HUH!?! They spend a day at the library researching baby names....maybe if they had spent as much time discussing the consequences of sex, they wouldn't be in this position.
I think all mom's should watch this show with their teenagers, boys and girls and really discuss the consequences of their actions. All choices have consequences. What do you want for your future? What do you need to do so that you get there? Will having sex with your boyfriend/girlfriend get you there? How do you think your life would change if you had a child now?
THESE GIRLS REALLY HAVE NO CLUE...HOW DO WE GET THROUGH TO THESE YOUNG KIDS? I KNOW I OWE MY SON TO A YOUNG GIRL WHO MADE A MISTAKE, BUT REALLY...IT'S SO OBVIOUS THESE GIRLS REALLY HAVE NO CLUE WHAT A REAL MAN IS SUPPOSE TO BE LIKE...THEY SELL THEMSELVES SO SHORT. NO ONE SEEMS TO HAVE ANY GOALS OR PLANS! AS PARENTS, WHAT IS THE PIECE WE FORGETTING TO TEACH? WHAT IS THE PART THAT THE CHILDREN JUST AREN'T GETTING?
