So as it turns ever since the premiere of Sixteen & Pregnant, a recent study shows that there has been a drop in the Teen Pregnancy rates. When you think about it, it’s not all that surprising. Before when teens got pregnant they weren’t really thinking of the consequences. This show actually show’s the consequences of being a young teen mom and in school. Teens already have a lot to deal with, peer pressure, school, grades, classes volunteer work where it’s necessary to graduate, extra curricular activities for a good college application and the big one, college prep, and the SAT’s. I mean if I had gotten pregnant at 16 I don’t know what I would have possibly done, I was already starting to burn out because of my class load and everything else. Now if you add a baby to that mix, well just thinking of the stress is freaking me out, and seeing it, like on the show, makes everyone aware of all the stress and turmoil’s. Raising a kid is not an easy thing.
