I was checking skimming though the boards at Café Mom and came across this note from another mom.
My husband’s nephew says that girls at his school are trying to get pregnant to get on 16 and Pregnant
This is what it’s come to, huh? When I started noticing all the Teen Mom stuff I thought the whole thing was being a little to glamorized (admitting I haven’t watched the show) and now this. It should not be much of a shock, right? Not too long ago there was buzz about a pregnancy pact high school girls made. There was even a movie made about it. It’s clear that these girls have no clue what really goes into being a mom and trying to be a good mom is a whole other beast. Becoming parents is the best thing my husband and I ever did. It’s also the most stressful. We love every second of it – as stressful as those seconds can be. At no point though have we looked at each other and thought, “this is a piece of cake.” We should do this again to hopefully get on TV. I guess that’s where the wisdom of not being 16 comes in. What do you think of girls trying to get pregnant in hopes of making it on TV? Have we created this beast with all the reality shows we crank out?
