Teen Mom Televesion Show Review Sep 30, 2011
I couldn't wait for season 3 of MTV's Teen Mom television show to air this past July. I was beyond excited and had the date securely saved for the premier. Now that the season is over, I can say how disappointed I am with this television show in general. The teen moms no longer show the hardships of being a young mother. I lost complete interest and will never be watching it again.
Teen Mom is a television show following four girls. Maci, Farrah, Amber, and Catelynn are teen girls who showed us what life is like dealing with an unplanned teen pregnancy. Maci, is a girl who struggles with custody issues, school and keeping a healthy relationship with her baby's father. Farrah does not have the best relationship with her mother and has to attend counseling to cope with her baby's father's death. Amber constantly argues with her boyfriend and has even gotten physical with him. Catelynn is the only girl who chose adoption for her baby. Her family was not supportive of her decision and has not made things easy for her since then.
The show Teen Mom had a purpose in the beginning of season 1. The purpose was to show young teens how hard an unplanned pregnancy can be. It showed how hard it was to attend school and do school work while watching over a child. It showed viewers how expensive a child was with all the food and supplies it needed. The struggles of attending school, working, studying and taking care of a baby were very overwhelming for the teen moms. Another plus to the show was showing how difficult the relationship with their baby's father was for the teen moms.
On the downside, the show displayed a lot of emotional and physical abuse. I believe this is not healthy for many viewers to watch without thinking it might be o.k. to so as well. For example, Amber did not suffer immediate consequences for being physically abusive to her boyfriend. The teen moms not only showed constant arguing with their partners throughout all 3 seasons but also with their parents. In the first two seasons the girls lived with their parents and most of them had jobs. They worked for what they had. By season 3, the girls were all moved into big houses but none of them had a job, not even their partner. They were not showing viewers how hard they had worked for what they had; a house, car, new furniture, etc. One of the teen moms was able to afford breast augmentation, a surgery that costs thousands of dollars. How were they all able to afford these luxuries without a job? It's obvious that the show paid these girls very well.
Even though, there were both strengths and weaknesses in the show, I am very disappointed on how it ended up after season 3. They were no longer showing how hard being a teen mom can be. I'm afraid many girls would want to have the life they have. The fame they have now is incredible and many teens would unfortunately get pregnant just to be on the show. This show no longer serves its purpose. I can no longer watch Teen Mom without changing the channel after 10 minutes.

I liked it up until the finial episode was from the wrong season with the wrong teen moms... They never fixed the situation and said they credited my account the money back for the episode but that never happened...

Totally unwatchable-and I only watched the first episode. Jan 03, 2012
Fame and fortune ruins many lives and it has totally ruined the lives of these four young women as well as the show. I loved the first season of Teen Mom because the people on the show were totally relatable; it was a lot more realistic. Most teen moms struggle financially for a long time and would never be able to make it without the help of their families or the government. The first season really shows that, the second not as much, and the third not at all.
First there is Maci who moves to a new city with no job or roommates, which I guess leaves her plenty of time to fight with her baby's daddy and date her BF.
Then there is Caitlyn who moves out on her own with Tyler, supposably for their safety. Neither one of them works and they eventually get evicted for not paying their rent. Does MTV offer these young women financial counseling?
And there is Farrah who got loan money for breast implants, but lives with her mom rent free. I sort of think that MTV exploits these young women because they actually showed the surgery and everything.
Finally there is Amber who spends her days not working or getting her GED, but screaming at Gary.
I can't believe that I wasted forty minutes of my time watching this crap. And it got me thinking that these women would be better off if fame and fortune didn't happen to them. Maci wouldn't have moved and her friends and family would tell her that they don't want to hear about her baby daddy dramas without cameras following them. She would then try harder to get along with him. Caitlyn would actually make plans to do something with her future other than being a reality TV star. Farrah would not get breast implants and would try to make things work with her mom. (Or her mom would kick her butt to the curb and sue for custody of Sophia without getting judged by the viewers). Even if that happened, Farrah would still be better off because this experience would force her to grow up. And Amber would have to shack up with another BF or get on welfare because Gary would dump her for good without any feelings of guilt or regrets. (Gary is sort of like Jon Gosselin. Even though people couldn't blame him for leaving Kate, they still made him feel guilty because Kate was the star of the show.) Amber's behavior would totally change if she had to rely on herself.
improper title Jul 27, 2011
This is not Season 3 of Teen Mom. It is officially listed on MTV, the network that broadcasts this show as "Teen Mom 2". Also, what is listed as "Teen Mom: Season 4" is actually season 3. Hopefully a correction can be made.
