MTV's 16 and Pregnant started a lot of interesting discussions when it aired last year and got people thinking and talking about teen pregnancy and parenthood, sexuality, responsibility, and adulthood.
The show is back for another season and premiered last week, when we met Jenelle, her boyfriend, Andrew, her mom, Barbara, and her baby Jace. Jenelle's challenges as a young mother are nothing new as she struggles to figure out life as mom and a teenager and her relationships suffer.
Tonight, we'll meet Nikkole, who has a concerned and supportive mom.
Nikkole tries very had to keep the peace between her mom and her boyfriend, Josh. Josh exhibits some really disappointing behavior while Nikkole is in labor, which is beyond defensible for even his mother. Perhaps he's acting this way because he is a teenager and scared, or perhaps because he is a total douchebag. Probably both. I watch this and I want to be understanding and perhaps Nikkole's mom could have just dropped it sooner, but I can't get over the urge to kick him in the junk.
16 and Pregnant will air tonight at 10 p.m. EST on MTV.
