Kim Kardashian has done a lot of things that parents would not advise their high school daughters to do, but getting pregnant at sixteen is not one of them!
Kim took to her blog yesterday to take a stab at shows like ‘Teen Mom’ and ‘Sixteen and Pregnant’ saying that they are glamorizing teen pregnancy.
“I saw a story about a Memphis high school where 90 young female students were either pregnant or have given birth this year! I just couldn’t believe this and I find it so sad and disturbing. It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls…but girls, these are not people you should idolize!”
(The good news is she didn’t call herself someone that you SHOULD idolize.)
“When I think back to when I was 16, there is no way I would even have considered having a baby. That thought wouldn’t even have entered my head. Having a baby so young shouldn’t be seen as the trendy thing to do. Girls, please, think very carefully before you make these kinds of decisions. Talk to your family, friends, teachers, and most of all, be careful.”
We have to agree with Kim here, even as lovers of bad reality television, Teen Mom and 16 & Pregnant are horrible shows. They send a message that should not be sent!
