Teen mom Rant
My new weekly Rant
Okay so I've decided I'm going to post a weekly rant on here. I understand some people will strongly disagree with my opinions and that's okay, I'm up for discussion! So, this weeks rant is going to be about teen moms.
Hmm, where to start? Well first off I think these girls are so irresponsible. Keep in mind while reading this I know there are the exceptions, I'm speaking for a large majority. These girls get pregnant while in High School, drop out, and stay living at home with mommy and daddy, where mommy and daddy raise said baby. Not to mention most of the "dads" of these babies don't stick around because they are too immature, so the teen mother is left alone with this child when she's still a child herself, never a good thing!
Lets not forget the reality show "Teen Mom" on MTV. This show is bad for viewers on so many levels. They make it seem like it's shown to make awareness to teen girls how hard it is, but in reality they are driving these teens to want to get pregnant!! It's like a competition now to get knocked up. Also, these starred teen moms continue to keep getting pregnant in order to get back on the show, popping these babies out is making them famous and raking in the cash.
Teen moms feel the need to be put on a pedestal. The ones that do actually take care of their children feel like they should be acknowledged and rewarded. Why? It's not an achievement, it's called raising your child. The normal, responsible thing to do. So no I'm not going to praise them for it. They were irresponsible, so now pay the consequences. I'm a mother myself to a 16 month old and I know how hard it is raising a little one, it's not easy by any means. I'm happily engaged to the father, but even with both of us it can still be hard. I'm going to school, and work full time and raising a family at the same time, talk about difficult.
Anyways, I guess this rant was about how irritated I get when teen moms think they are better than everyone else if they take care of their baby and not have an abortion or adoption, when in all reality it's called being a responsible person, they just decided to do it early.
