These mothers on Teen Mom need to spend more time focusing on getting an education and trying to raise their children instead of trying to make a tv show out of their lives. The show focuses more on their relationships, instead of raising their children. There is only one girl who actually shows the difficulties of being a teen mom. Once she finds a boyfriend that will be all over. The show does show some of the difficulties of being a teen mom, but it also glamorizes being a teen mom. After all, these girls are on tv now. I think glamorizing being a teen mom is the wrong direction to go. The reality tv shows teens as being reckless and making poor decisions. As if it's cool to be wild and out of control. Teens are messed up enough and don't seem to understand what it is like to live in the real world. The last thing they need is reality tv shows glamorizing reckless behaviour.
