This show aggravates me so I don't know why I watch it but I do and I just have to get this rant out!

Janelle and her mom piss me off. That poor kid needs to be taken away from BOTH of them. I know some people think that Janelle's mom's behavior is okay because of how out of control Janelle is but I think she is a horrible parent and has a huge anger problem. Both of them need tons of counseling before they should get to have any contact with that cute little boy IMO.

I think Chelsea is an idiot for taking Adam back over and over again. She is just setting up a poisonous environment for her daughter to grow up in. I could maybe understand her position if she was all alone and had no one to help her but she has a fantastic support system, she doesn't need that loser in her life!

Kailyn is okay, sometimes. Joe has an anger problem and I don't know why his parents are so okay with how he yells and screams at her. I think their poor kid is going to have a messed up life if they don't get their act together.

Leah and Corey are super cute, I think they rushed into marriage but I hope the best for them.

Please tell me someone else watches this show so I'm not alone in my frustration!

    I do.  I like Jenelle's mom, but she needs to stop letting her come back home.
    I'm not good at feelings.

    She has some okay moments but I still think she needs counseling to help her learn how to communicate without screaming all the time about everything. Her reaction to something small is the same as something that really is a big deal.

    I watch it and I get frustrated with it too. Sometimes it is a train wreck. 
    Janelle and her mom are toxic to each other. Poor Jace is going to grow up with big issues, but luckily he has someone other than his mother to care for him. I really hope that Janelle gets her stuff together and is eventually able to be there for her son. Unfortunately I don't think it'll happen.
    Chelsea is a good mom from what it seems, but needs to let go of Adam. He will probably never change and she is going to set a bad example for her daughter. 
    I agree about the Joe and Kailyn situation.
    I think Leah and Corey did rush, but I think that overall they are doing good. I hope they can figure out what is wrong with one of their girls. I can only imagine how difficult that must be. 
    It is nice to know someone else watches it...

    I watch it. There are some episodes where they all tick me off...mostly its just jenelle. I consider her very good birth control for SO and I. I generally think the rest of them are okay.

    I understand Chelsea wanting to give Adam a chance for as long as she can. She's explained it before. I understand it, I don't necessarily agree with it. Adam is Aubree's dad though.

    Kailyn has had a very hard life, and Jo makes it worse, as do his parents. I heard he recently got arrested for drugs...idk how much truth there is to that. I feel bad for her because I feel like she's one of the only girls I've seen on this show with no real support.

    Leah and Corey are doing their best. I think they're doing so good because they work hard at their relationship and they have a strong support system..and because they're both sweethearts.

    I dont wanna talk about jenelle.

    I agree with this and I do feel really bad for her. In her 16 and pregnant episode Joe's parents seemed really supportive but now I think it's creepy how they push her to Joe. I don't think they really care about her as much as they portray themselves to.

    </div><div>I agree. In her 16 and pregnant episode i couldn't understand it because Jo acts so very entitled even when he's with her, and they seemed so nice. Now its all clear. I wouldn't want to be with him either, and his parents are the reason he's like that. </div>

    It's too bad all of these girls think they need a guy. They have so much going on in their lives and dating just complicates it even more. But they are teenagers so I guess that's just how they think.

    I watch the show.

    I think Janelle's mother is abusive.  She's always screaming at Janelle and calling her names.  It's never a calm conversation of "Why do you think you need a man?"  "Why are you repeatedly acting out?"  "Perhaps you need counseling...maybe we can go as a family."  It's clear to me that Janelle has serious self esteem problems and doesn't feel loved by anyone  That being said, it enfuriates me how she repeatedly, knowingly puts herself in bad situations and says, "Well, it'll piss off my mom, so I'll just lie to her about it."  It's like, GROW UP.  YOU HAVE A KID.  IF YOU HAVE TO LIE ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE DOING, YOU SHOULDN'T BE DOING IT.

    Kailyn is meh.  I think she was stupid for sneaking around with Jordan, but at the same time, I think Joe's parents were being arseholes for telling her "Under our roof, you're either single or with Jo".  And Jo is definitely going to be a serial killer.  But I do admire her strong work ethic and determination to do better for herself.

    Chelsea...I can understand her wanting to go back to Adam.  She loves him and he's the father of her child.  But she needs to have some self respect and realize that Adam only used her for a free place to crash.  He treats her poorly.  Has has no respect for her, her feelings, or her other relationships.  That being said, she needs to hunker down, finish school, and thank God for the AMAZING support system she has.  Think about what Kailyn wouldn't give for a support system like that...

    Leah and Corey I love.  I hope they didn't rush into marriage, but I love them.  Ali looks soooo cute with the glasses.  I hope she's ok.

    I'm so frustrated with Janelle, too. I think she's an idiot about Keifer. He's a loser and she is too for getting him out of jail.  Janelle has no sense of responsibility, I really don't think she cares about Jace at all. She wouldn't be in all this mess if she did. Janelle's mom is just a psycho. She needs to be more supportive and talk in a manner in which Janelle feels comfortable to talk to her. Her mother does not provide that at all, that's why Janelle lies and sneaks around.

    Chelsea is an idiot, too. Adam is the biggest jerk on the show because he has no interest in Aubree, it's all just a power struggle that he wants to win. I agree that Chelsea has a fantastic support system and there's really no reason why she needs Adam. That dream for her family is not going to happen and she needs to let it go. It's just not healthy for her baby.

    Kailyn and Jo. Hm? Jo is a jerk too but at least he acts like a father and is in his son's life. But he treats his son's mother horribly! I wouldn't want to be with him either, he is not respectful at all. But I do think that Kailyn is stupid, too. I think that because when they went to mediation to discuss the custody agreement, Kailyn flipped out because she didn't want Jo to have Issac for a day more. He's a good father so there is no reason at all that Jo shouldn't see Issac more...

    Leah and Corey are the closest to normal on that show. I hope everything works out for them. And I hope Ali can walk one day.

    I watch EVERY episode.  I hung up on my Dad Tuesday night because he wouldn't say 'bye' and the show was starting. 

    PREFACE: I think MTV does some mad editing to make the viewers think what they want us to think about the characters.  There's way more than what is shown on the surface.

    Janelle-  It's obvious.  She's a wreck, but her mother doesn't help.  Her mother helps her out of every situation,  She needs to listen to her mother.  BUT, her mother talks so much shiit about her that she has to have a little bit of a loss of self-confidence.  I think that's why she turns to Keiffer.  Keiffer is a mess and will just get her in more trouble, but she's seeking out love and affection.
    I'm glad Janelle's boss fired her after the Jersey trip.  He needed to show her that she won't always get bailed out of every situation.
    If I was her friend, I wouldn't have signed the bail bond for Keiffer.  He WILL bounce.  The friend WILL be responsible for the $2000.

    Kailyn-  Joe's parents did not handle the situation the way I think they should've.  They definitely pick Joe's side.  They have been broken up, Kailyn has the right to date.  (As long as she's responsible about it.)  She seems to be working so hard to make the right decisions and create a successful life for her and Issac.  I really don't like the way that Joe talks to her.

    Leah & Cory-  They're my favorites.  I lurve them.  I hope everything works out.  They work so hard to take care of their girls and to try to have a healthy relationship.  I really wish them the best.  I hope they live a happy life together and I hope Ali's health problems are straightened out soon.  Leah grew up very quickly after 16 and Pregnant.  Cory is a good man who's working hard to take care of all three of them.

    Chelsea-She needs to be slapped.  Honestly, I think Adam is a douche, BUT I think MTV plays it up.  I think they might make him out worse than he is.  If his vehicle got towed, he has a right to know where it was towed to. He shouldn't talk to her the way he does and call her names, but I think MTV cuts out things she does to him. (That's no excuse for his behaviour, I just refuse to believe she's an angel.)
     She just runs around spending Daddy's money and only takes care of Aubrey.  I think she's a great mom, she just sucks at the rest of life.  How can you sit at home all day, not go to school, not work, and get NOTHING else done??  She's lazy.  Dad needs to cut the spending.  Either she goes to school, or he doesn't support her.

    I've heard they do a lot of editing to make Adam look as bad as he does and that Chelsea is just as bad as he is.
