Casting Calls

Are you and your step parent close in age? Has your parent remarried someone who graduated high school the same year as you? Are you expected to call someone younger than you mommy or daddy?

Are you sick of being parented by someone the same age as you? Do you and your stepparent get mistaken for siblings? Did you refuse to attend your parent’s wedding, or other family functions, as you disapproved of how young the person they were marrying was?

Are you embarrassed to be seen with your parent’s much younger new spouse? Do people think that your parent’s new partner is actually dating you? Or do you love having a stepparent the same age as you to hang out with who understands the things that you are going through in life as they are experiencing them too?

If you appear to be between the ages of 16 and 30 and want to show the highs and lows of having a young stepparent, MTV’s Emmy-award winning True Life series wants to hear your story. If you appear to be between the ages of 16 and 30, email us at and tell us what you love or hate about your new stepparent. Please include your name, location, phone number and a recent photo of yourself.
