    Are the MTV Teen Moms show hurting or helping young girls?

    Do you think that the MTV show "Teen Moms" is helping or hurting  young women's view of pregnancy at an early age?

    I think it helps young girls see first hand what problems these teen moms have to deal with.  Based on what I have  witnessed, it would discourage them from wanting to be a mom at such an early age.  It shows these girls missing out on the prom and other activities high school girls normally participate in.  A good dose of reality is usually the most effective.

    I think it does a little bit of both. I think they see how hard it can be to raise a baby but at the same time girls look up to these teen moms and want to be like them to the point where they are glorified.

    I honestly think that show doesn't make it look hard enough! Unless my children were just harder work than all of theirs, which i doubt..
