Teen Mom - Page 2

post #21 of 176
Amber.... Why hasn't anyone said ANYTHING about the fact that Amber physically assaulted her fiance??!~?~ Seriously, if a HE. EVER. did that to her, there would be soooooo many issues.
The guy is awesome. Verbal and emotional abuse in every scene, and he still goes back to pick her up from her dads. If this was a woman, people would be all up in arms about how she needs to leave this guy. Amber puts him down constantly. And WHO deserves that?!

Yeah, Amber you need a new car, but you also need a reality check ...


Farrah. Dear Farrah... She gave birth to a sister. I can totally understand her needing to get her education done and working. Awesome responsible actions.
What someone needs to tell her, which Shaq in a way did, is that she is in a FAR more responsible and mature point in her life than nearly any other teen, or individual in a 3-5 year age range from her. ETA Not that she is necessarily acting responsible or mature..--- If she were to focus right now on schooling, work and her daughter, there will be a time when maturity-wise options for a boyfriend/husband/significant other will present itself.

Maci. I am impressed with her. Though as with all the girls she could use some classes or therapy that deal with self expression and problem solving.

"I am amazed by how mature Catelynn and Tyler are. Especially when there parents are so immature. I'm also glad they showed her getting the IUD."

I totally second that. Considering the environment that they grew up in, and their situation, I can't imagine anyone handling it very much better. I think that they did the BEST thing for their daughter. They don't love her any less, I think being mature about your situation and what you can do for your child shows a LOT of love.

I cannot relate to Farrah at all. I just do not understand a single thing she does.

I agree. Seems like a sad situation. Notice the episode where she laid Leah in her PNP
and her boyfriend told her to change her diaper and she rolled her eyes at him? she's out there for sure.

Amber has some major issues. I do think she feels trapped. I notice when she wanted to leave, she didn't have a home to go to. I am NOT excusing what she has done, but I think she is striking out b/c she doesn't feel she has options.

Farrah needs to realize she is not a normal teen. Her parents are passive aggresive though; they yell and scream, but then watch the baby. sigh

I think Catelyn's mom and step dad only wanted her to keep the baby so she could get benefits- WIC, foodstamps, etc. They also often seem high in the tapings. Talk about toxic people.

I get more upset with Farrah everytime I watch this show. She is so "boyfriend" oriented. She says all the time how busy she is etc, but yet she's always chasing boys.

Catelynn and Tyler LOVE them both.

Amber has a princess mentality. I understand she is home with her baby all the time but her hair, makeup, fake nails, clothes are always perfect. I think she needs to cut out some of that time and spend it cleaning up her house. Her boyfriend is working fulltime and paying the bills. He should pick up after himself but she needs to kick it up a notch.

Maci I was hoping she and her boyfriend would be apart longer so he could decide what he really wants. My 15yr old said "man he's immature". I think Maci is lonely and he is company.

I wish that we could see how the other two mamas from 16 and Pregnant are doing now!

I agree that they are toxic and definitely have noticed that they've seemed a bit "messed up" on something in a few episodes but I think that saying they only wanted the baby for benefits is a very harsh accusation. I realize that this might be something that takes place sometimes but I don't think it's as common of an occurrence as people seem to make it out to be.

I think that their dislike of adoption is probably very deep rooted, very culturally based, and probably somewhat intuitive (I'm not anti-adoption BTW.) I think that they are deeply hurt and I'd wager they probably feel that Catelynn and Tyler's choice to give Carly up for adoption is like the kids telling them they are bad parents. It is truly a terrible situation and I really think that Tyler and Catelynn are pretty stinkin' amazing to be so mature in dealing with it.

nak but wanted to say that Amber was all freaking out about her bf not changing baby before laying her down, but like 2 episodes ago she did the same thing! and then rolled her eyes at him and said she'd do it later, seriously, hypocrite much?
post #29 of 176
They did say one time that they saw it as a slap in the face that Ty and Catelyn gave up the baby for adoption, so you are probably right there. IMO, they(the grandparents) are very narcisistic- only thinking about themselves and not about the baby. And IMO, they are bad parents. Instead of being supportive, they try and make the couple feel badly every chance they get. it is amazing Catelyn is as grounded as she is.

I'm really glad that Catelynn is out of her mother's house. I agree she needs a better permanent place than Ty's mom's house, but it is wonderful that she is taking Catelynn in.

I just want to have unlimited resources and help couples like Catelynn and Tyler. Someone needs to gift them both a full ride to college.

The 16 and pregnant epi with catelyn and ty was one of the most heartwrenching things Ive seen on tv. I cried so hard I couldn't stop. It literally gave me chest pains.

When Catelyn screamed to get the baby out the room after she was born. OMG!
post #32 of 176
I also believe that Amber has nowhere to go and no help. You saw her dad in a recent episode and her mom in an episode of 16 and pregnant but where are they now? Mad because she choose to be with Gary? Is the abuse of him inexcusible? Nope but I think WHY it is (a little) different/glossed is that she couldn't hurt him (physically) and she is in a bad mental state where she is feeling let down. It was rage at it's worst. It is not ongoing abuse. It is not right, I just think you would have a hard time convincing most that an outburst of anger is always wrong. And yeah man/woman woman/man does make a difference. As for the car, I took it to mean a few things, first he claims she doesn't need to go to school and they are doing fine and yet there is no future plan for a car. Second her asking for his appeared to me that hers works and he can make it work but it just doesn't go "fast enough" for him. Like if they traded he could still go to wok and be fine but she would also have a car. He didn't seem to want that.

Maci I hope it works out and she actually states her bounderies. If there is one thing I have learnt is that men are not mindreaders. Tell him that his going out upsets you. She doesn't have to tell him not to go. Or control that but by letting him know that that is the biggest problem (?) then it will be left to him to figure out.

Catelynn and Tyler... Love love them. And I agree that while saying they look high is harsh it does look like a possibility considering their past.

Farrah... Her parents need to stop the enabling and she needs to move out and do things herself. Total emotional abusive/ enabling family. And she is totally looking for someone to "love" her.
post #33 of 176
i often thought also that catelyn's parents looked high on the episodes, but maybe that is just the way they look because they are just tired.

so annoyed with farrah ... aghh ... i get that she is young and still a teen and trying to make a go of paying her bills and finishing school, but she really needs to step up and be a mother and stop worrying about the boyfriends!

Oops! I agree that there is a possibility that they are on drugs, what I thought was harsh was the accusation that they only wanted to keep the baby for government aid.

I totally agree. That poor girl. I can't imagine anyone turning her away from living with them. She is such a happy, grounded person even after all she has been through. And why does her mom just sit there while Tyler's dad always yells at Catelynn and tells her what to do? Catelynn's mom is just so quiet and never smiles. Almost like someone in an abusive situation.

And I wonder why Tyler and Catelynn's mom and dad always look so tired? They always talk about being out of work and what not.

Maci and her fiancee. I don't know about them. Maci is very mature compared to her BF (not sure what his name is) and when they have deep discussions anyone notice how her BF never looks her in the eyes? He just looks down the whole time and mumbles. He is still a little immature IMO and just not ready to settle down. I hope she sees that.

Farrah I feel for as well. She is definitely not giving Sophia the time and attention she needs (on camera anyway) but she may be the type of person that craves that attention that a man can give her. I can't fault her for that. She wants someone to love and to love her back. The more I watch her on the show the more I feel bad for her. She's doing the best she can I guess.

Amber...ugh. I don't even want to comment on her. She irks me during every single episode. I can't stand the way she reacts to everything in her life. She's just unable to talk or deal with things realistically. I think it's best that her and Gary separated. They are not good for each other. She's way too dramatic and he is the happy go lucky type of person it seems.

i really really want maci and her bf to make it - i'm not sure why. i think that amber would be really hard to get along with. granted gary isn't the most mature either but she really makes it tough on him.

I really feel for Farrah. I think she craves the attention of men because she's so rundown at home. They're always telling her she's irresponsible, she's a bad mother (I think they said she was farming out mothering like anyone who gets a babysitter is farming out mothering) and whatnot that it's no wonder she seeks approval elsewhere. It also seems like she might have always put a lot of stock in her appearance and how she can attract men in oder to feel good about herself and that sort of thing doesn't come out of nowhere, it comes from insecurity at home. I think people are rude to her, some of the things her sister said and her mom said were horrible. Let's not forget when she was on that tour of the hospital and she was asking questions to the nurses her mom pretty much told her she was being disgusting and both her sister and mother were too preoccupied with their own feelings to support a 17 year old about to give birth.

I was in tears for Catelynn! So happy she found a group to talk to! Dh alwayscomments on how Tyler (and Catelynn) is the most grownup and would be the best dad in the group.

Yay for Maci (and Ryans parents) for pushing him to go to counselling. I hope they do some without the cameras so that Ryan can really open up. He just doesn't get it!

I really hope Gary keeps this up. She is depressed. Completely and utterly depressed and while I hope she keeps working on that I hope they both continue to work on their relationship! I think they could be great together! He was so thoughtful and really wants this to work. I was crying when he phoned his boss.

Farrah I think might be getting it. And her parents NEED to back off and say no to watching her. I liked the preview for next week on Farrah... Although DH just about lost it when she said something about "I am just a teenager" or something when her parents said "you are a mother"... I think they all need couselling too... Family and farrah needs her own.

Well part of the reason Farrah's family treats her the way they do is because of her attitude. She does come off as very spoiled in a way. She seems to have had a lot given to her. Now to suddenly be a teen mom it is showing her that there is a lot more to life now and she's just having a hard time adjusting to that. I think her parents shouldn't do so much for Sophia but at the same time they are the grandparents and as a grandparent I would not desert my grandbaby either and would choose to watch it. We don't know what goes on behind the scenes either. Plus, I'm sure her family is a bit embarrassed of her considering she got pregnant and the father has never been in the picture at all. Her mom seems like the type to get embarrassed over things real easy.

I can't wait to see this weeks epsiode. I have it recorded.
