Our younger selves would also have to be willing to accept the advice. Often easier said than done.
Pearl Gannon April 16, 2014 at 09:47 am
I believe both of you have very good points. @Sal, who's to say that we, as younger children orRead More people would actually listen to that advice that we were given? We want to be free, do the opposite of what our parents say, etc. And @Bob, I wish more people realized that they can be THAT PERSON for others. We can be that for our children, friends going through rough times, strangers...you name it. The possibilities are endless. I just hope people learn that!
Willie Wilmette April 16, 2014 at 11:29 am
Sal is so right. Younger me would not have listened to me.

Tricia and chicubs...we are in agreement on that : teen pregnancy IS a big deal and that is exactlyRead More why this show is on the air, the ramifications are certainly not made light of, in fact that's the premise of the show. Sure there is drama unrelated and some girls have more than others but the girls are between 16 and 23 with children what do you expect? And to inform you, many of the girls go to school or work or do BOTH. I personally don't find this surprising as they have families to support and that's what people do to make a living, but it is good the program shows how difficult juggling all that responsibility is especially for teens thinkim about having sex. Its one thing to hear the difficulties from a parent or school and its another to see someone your age who you may relate to better struggling to accomplish things oor giving up things taken for granted such as sports, friends, homes, sanity. I'm not seeking to achieve sympathy for these girls and I don't think they are either (at least not the majority of the teen moms), I think many do truly want to help other girls make better decisions. Some of these girls are lucky enough to have amazing parents who help them through life and are by their side. The teen moms know their lives as they are was their own doing, so if that was not communicated In the last episode, its not representative of the show as a whole and is likely due to temporary immaturity. Maci bookout, one of the original teen moms, does amazing work traveling the country talking to high schools and universities about safe sex and the importance of waiting or using birth control. She tells them chicubs about the 100% preventable, and funny enough that exact quote comes from MTV's shows break between scenes;

How am I gonna live with you and sleep in the same bed as you if we are not together???????????? HowRead More did you spread your legs and insert a strangers penis inside your vagina, exchange body fluids and create a child with someone you only knew an hour??????? I think that is the real question. What a Skankerooo!
Kmstudent April 17, 2014 at 12:03 am
"Pregnancy is 100% preventable" so you and the goal of the show are not so far apart. SoRead More it sounds like your unfamiliarity with the show is coloring your opinion; since many of these girls do work, go to school, have careers, and work hard doing it.

It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

@Marye Greenys regarding your post about including Charlie in Park District business via Skype,Read More video chat, or conference call, this is not something that can just happen. What does Board policy dictate? You can't just make up rules along the way. That isn't good government. As for a meeting being held at his residence, if it can accommodate members of the community and if he would like members of the community showing up at his residence, I suppose they could do that, it is the law that meetings such as this be held in such a location where the public can attend. You can look into by searching Open Meetings Act. Keep in mind, that just as you feel that he should be allowed to participate, there are many that feel that he should not while this question is hanging over his head.

@ Stuck in OF, great post. I agree with you entirely. I feel that if he truly cared about theRead More town, the kids, he would step down. Just the fact that all these groups have had to be investigated because of questions concerning him, not good. If he is found not guilty, he can run again, vindicated.
