The term “Teenager Mom” is bandied about quite a bit nowadays. You will hear this term used with relation to dramas related to baby daddies, MTV and even rehabilitation, which is quite unfortunate. There is a reality show that has received much flak for focusing on stars who have become mothers even they are just teenagers like Leah Messer Calvert, Jenelle Evans and Maci Bookout. Their stories have achieved a kind of luster and helped sell many a tabloid and thereby advertisements too.
