'Teen Mom' continues to change lives!
When 16 and Pregnant premiered on MTV in 2009, the response to the show was mixed. Some said that it “glorified” teenage pregnancy and might exacerbate the teenage pregnancy epidemic in this country, while others believed that talking openly about the experience would help teens to be more careful—the latter of which turned out to be true. Recently, though, it has come to light that sharing stories of teen motherhood has had other positive effects. Specifically, Catelynn Baltierra’s personal journey on the show this season has helped other women in profound ways.
