Maci, Farrah and Catelynn sit down together to talk about their different journeys on 'Teen Mom.'
Yes, Farrah is young and has growing to do. You all have to understand that her parents (particularly her mother) are very controlling. I'm sure Farrah felt very suffocated by them, i personally know how it feels to have family trying to control every thing you do. Making you feel incompetent and not able or trusted to take care of her own child. I'm glad Farrah moved away from her parents, she needed that. And so did her parents. I'm sure she was very overwhelmed by them and didn't know any other way to deal with them. Her mom may seem really quiet and nice but a lot of times she talks to Farrah as if she was still 12 years old. i mean.. that would drive any girl crazy. Baby or not ! I may not agree with the way Farrah talks to her mom but I can definitely understand WHY she does it. Farrah needed to go off on her own to figure it out for herself and Sofia. Who cares if her parents warned her. Since when does any child listen to everything their parents tell them to do? MAYBE if they weren't so overbearing she'd want to stick around. I praise Farrah for moving away from her parents. That was a very grown up thing to do. By the way.. not to be mean but if her parents know so much about raising children , then why do their kids speak to them the way they do? ask yourselves that. yes Sofia will pick up on what her mom does but did you ever think 'where did Farrah get her snarky attitude?' hmm.. let's stop and take a look at the bigger picture here before you start pointing fingers at ONE person in the family. Let's not forget that she IS growing adult and she has come really far for a teen mom.
Maci you are so Awesome.. I love how you dedicate your life to bentley.. I wish you and Ryan would have worked. But He still has to grow up alotttt. I think his parents need to stop making everything so easy for him. He needs to on his own. Having everything doesnt help him appriciate things. A man wt a child that still acts like a teen. I truly hope he can step up more . Maci keep up the goodwork.
I need help. I'm a teen mom.
The goal of "Teen Mom" is to deter teens from getting pregnant, and I'm sure every girl who watches Amber thinks, 'I never want to be anything like her.' The way she acts IS messed up, but she helped meet the goal of the show.
to be honest i love all of these girls and im gonna miss them soo much just learning and see how they interact with the problems they have faced in life! i believe they are awsome! dont let anyone get you down! keep your heads up!
Yes, I think Farrah treated her parents HORRIBLY but I also fel like there is par of their story that we don't know. We weren't even shown that Sophia's dad had died before she was born until the first seasonof Teen Mom. And the fact that her sister seems to feel similarly seems to also convince me of that. And i'm not sure of the exact episode, but I do recall Farrah's sister making a comment about how their mom "ruined their lives." I'm not defending the was she acted, but I just think there is more to her story then she is letting on.
Chill the **** out guys and learn some English. You're fighting over someone you've never met before.....psycho much?
where is amber? not saying I like her...but just wondering
It would have been a perfect Teen Mom if Amber wouldn't have been on it...She is messed up!
I truly enjoy watching all these girls & the families. I applaud them all for being willing to expose themselves & all the trials they go through. Maci is so strong & so competent in all she does, I wish she would appreciate Ryan being as laid back as he is because she pretty much is able to control the show & that is a blessing for her as well as Ryan's parents who are tremendous blessings! Tyler is amazing & Catelynn is a born counselor ( ive been doing it over 20 yrs) & the most open minded & flexible woman on the show which is why she has such a good relationship with Tyler. They both have the biggest hearts of all with everyone! I hope they will go to Al Anon or ACA ( adult children of alcoholics) because that could soar them up higher & bring them alot of healing for their future together.Farrah loves Sophia but needs to work on herself because everything she says & does will be copied by her daughter & if she doesnt want to be treated badly she needs to change her ways with her own parents. The fact she calls her dad Michael & the manner in which she acts towards her parents is unusual because they are always there & always forgiving & willing to help her no matter what, She always carries the victim attitude which is not going to help her find love. Shes very defensive about everything & shes so beautiful & talented I hope she will find some help that will make her take accountability for herself instead of always pointing fingers. She deserves happiness but cant find it by demanding the way she does with her parents . Last, Maci has everyone where she wants them & thats great for now but Im hoping as Bentley communicates his needs & desires she will be open enough to be more flexible later. Its obvious he adores his daddy ( the day at the beach is an example of what I am speaking to when she forced herself into his vacation) Catelynn: definitely keep pluggin for that counseling you are so gifted! & Farrah : never worry about Sophia not having a father because God has plans & she has alot of love ( we dont know Derrick & we cant say what could have been ) Dont live in the past, don't live in a fantasy & worry only about your part in her life the rest will come if you work on yourself. Shout out to Kyle who is doing a great job at the hardest job of all which is step parenting ! Its obvious he has earned the love & respect of Bentley & I hope others realize that if a man is like Kyle then hes worth having around your child, if not, Forget it. The children are all so precious. You all are doing a great job & the best part is watching yourself in these videos because its a tool to grow & learn from. I wish you ALL the very best!!! Im praying for all of you, & especially for Catelynns Mom & Tyler's Dad. Its been a pure joy watching & I care about all of you! Rev Claire Fodero Stokes. P.S If any of you need any help ( as in counseling ) I am here for you! I have many yrs of experience but I do work with a spiritual base/ not religion. GodBless
You people really dont know what they are really going through and losing someone and having a child at the same time makes things way harder then not having a child to deal with and so what if she didnt tell Derick because was doing what she thought was best for Sophia and understand what she is going through but mine was a littlie different. I would love to see the people that put these bad comments up try to do what they are doing. I know how hard this all is with being 17 and having a 2 year old.
Wow! I was wondering if anyone else saw that episode or knew. I think her crying and being sad makes for good tv but does not come across very sincere since she had a chance to tell him and never did nor did she attend the funeral. I suppose those actions could way heavy on her conscience or anyone elses who acted in that fashion.
Especially when her parents warned her before she left that she would need more of a support system in Florida if she was going to be successful. And she not only disagreed with them but was pretty rude and nasty any time they offered help. Only when she realizes that she does in fact need help, then Sophia being away for a month is fine but when its her parents idea then it is wrong. That is inmaturity and hopefully Farah will begin to realize her parents do know a little something about bringing up children and listen more than she yells!
I don't think people are judging just commenting on the the behavior they show on Teen Moms. I f you yell at your parents in front of your child, If you cuss at your childs father and hit him in front of your child for all the world to see, you can't say they are being judged . People are only responding to what they see. So if you are struggling thats one thing but if you are acting badly thats not a result of being a teen mom but more about who you are as a person. As a teacher I have interacted with many Teen moms and many are rude and selfish little girls. But many are also kind and thankful more like Caitlynn and Macy.
Farrah: Just remember that you are role modeling for Sophia EVERY day, so when you are treating your parents like a spoiled brat, you are teaching Sophia to treat you that way. You might want to listen to yourself and realize wow--I'd hate for Sophia to talk to me that way!!!!
I feel like everyone on this site should stop acting like children. Yes, I am not perfect (no one is, and if you think you are you have some growing up to do), but i also know that EVERYONE has their own opinions on things. You may not agree with someone else's comment but you don't need to go bash them. Just like everyone doesn't need to go bash the Teen Mom's. It's just getting ridiculous. Everyone has the right to say what they want to say so just let them say it--they will anyway!
no one should judge any of these girls! You have no idea what you would do if you were in their exact situation. they did what they had to and yes they may have made mistakes along the way, but they are only human. people are selfish and mean sometimes so dont make yourselves saints compared to these teen moms. i aploud them for what they had to go through. i know i wouldnt be able to get through it.
I was a teen parent and I kept him, life was hard and I couldnt of made it with out my parents, I have a hard time watching farrah speak to her mother and then turn around and ask for favors like how mean her sisiter and her were to her mom on her visit to florida then turn around and ask her to keep sophia for a month so she can do her school work I just dont get it
