Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Open a gossip magazine or turn on the television and you are more likely than ever to see some mention or portrayal of an adolescent mom. For the past several years, adolescent pregnancy has received much press with top billing on ABC's drama "Secret Life of the American Teenager" and the hit MTV reality shows "16 and Pregnant" and "Teen Mom." And the media has been at times obsessed with famous young moms such as Jamie Lynn Spears and Bristol Palin. The hype has inspired editorials, articles, and even research examining whether all the attention glamorizes adolescent parenthood and encourages adolescents to have babies or whether, in the end, it helps prevent adolescent pregnancy by encouraging young people to think about the challenges.
