HORRIBLE!! I wish I could go back in time and get a Law degree so I could find SOME WAY to SUE this show. It is not only detrimental to ANYONE watching it has absolutely no REALITY to it despite its propaganda. I cannot even put into words how annoyed I get with the STUPIDITY of these girls, families and MTV! Seriously, am I the only one here that knows the brain is not even fully developed until you are in your 20s (24+ to be exact)!!?? It is scientifically proven, not only this fact, but most importantly that the LAST part to become fully developed is the motor cortex, which is responsible for behavior, control, and awareness of consequences.
So WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! These TEENS are not even physically (and mentally or emotionally) capable of making they're own decisions due to the inability to correctly estimate the consequences of they're actions…exhibit A is that they are pregnant at 16….and STILL MTV takes advantage of these girls' situations while giving a HORRIBLE example to other teens. Many of you may disagree but it has been scientifically proven that what you see or hear does affect how you think, so a young girl watching other young girls "growing up" all of a sudden, they will not consider the consequences, because the show does not do a great job at showing this…instead they focus on the girls' personal dramas and how they "mature"(in quotes because they truly don't, if they were mature they would not go live with another boy the same age and completely destroy they're youth because of some teen fantasy. Sadly, the excuse that its "for the baby" is utter crap, because if you were truly thinking about the baby and not yourself you would do what is TRULY best for the baby which is not being raised by someone who does not even have the mental capacity to make proper decisions.)
Every show is the nearly the same concept and after watching many episodes trying to find SOME benefit in this, I have only the worst things to say about it. It gives a horrible example to kids, and the majority of these girls just want to use the baby as an excuse to: A) Keep boyfriend. B) A and leave the house (be "independent"). C) A, B, and be on the show.
If you love your child, you will NEVER let them watch these shows, or if you do be with them pointing out what is so wrong with them, because I definitely found myself yelling at the screen, about every minute.
MTV NEEDS TO TAKE THIS SHOW DOWN.
