In the United States weâ€™re seeing the first increase in teen births in 15 years â€“ a situation that has us all concerned. Keeping the issue of teen pregnancy and teen parenting on the national radar screen is more important now than ever and â€œThe Baby Borrowersâ€ will do just that. The “Baby Borrowers” will no doubt lead to frank discussions about sex, birth control, pregnancy, and starting a family among anyone who watches it â€“ a very good thing. This show provides a fascinating look at some of the challenges faced by real teen parents every day. It would be impossible to watch â€œThe Baby Borrowersâ€ and not come away with a better understanding and appreciation for the demanding task of parenting.
I know many people want to cause controversy with this show, but there is no reason to because there is a greater good to TBB. If it can makes teens talk to their parents about sex and teen pregnancy and prevent a few unwanted teen pregnancies than that is more important than those people who have not see the show and look for controversy.
So please make sure to watch this show, no matter what age you are on NBC starting February 18th at 9p!
