I watch Teen Mom.
I’m not proud, but I started watching 16 and pregnant when I was pregnant and I want to follow the girls and she if life gets any better for them. Even though they infuriate me. Right now Teen Mom 2 is on. The girls of Teen Mom 2 break my heart, more than the original cast.
I watch this show and I think to myself that I will do whatever I can to make sure that my daughter never spends her time trying desperately to get a boy who treats her like crap to love her back. I don’t know what I would do if I saw my daughter’s boyfriend or girlfriend calling her a stupid bitch in front of their child. If I saw her hitting her partner or getting hit I would put a stop to it.
My daughter will never believe that being with someone – anyone – is better than being alone. She will have the self esteem to say “I am better than this. I don’t deserve to be treated like this.”
