Hollywood SignJanelle Evans star of Teen Mom 2 is alleged to be hiding a drug habit or so it says in this article from Hollywoodlife.com.  The 20 year old has already been to Rehab and is on probation.  Why on earth is anybody buying into this and reporting on it as news.  I think a show about teen moms is worth doing if it done right and sends a clear message that being a teen mother is a very bad idea. However, add Hollywood to the mix and you have these young messed up people being glorified and reported on as if they were celebrities.  And lets not forget that there is an innocent child involved somewhere in the mix here.

Teenage drug use in on the rise and shows like this and the fame bestowed on this young kids doesn’t help.  I will not allow my teenage daughters to watch this show.  I also believe that reporting such as this is simply glorifying the lifestyle that got these kids into trouble in the first place.  If they are going to make a show about teenage motherhood then choose kids who are not drug addicts who really want to raise their kids and show my kids how unglamourous and tough it is.  Seeing these so called stars of the show plastered all over Hollywood news sites is simply feeding the beast.

Teen Mom as a show definitely has its issues; however I don’t believe the show glamorizes teen motherhood. These girls, drugs or not, need help and support beyond quarterly updates with Dr. Drew. It would be better if MTV would provide them the counseling, rehab, and any other support they need to be successful parents instead of just turning them into celebrities and then benefiting from higher ratings when their lives are falling apart.

Taking recreational drugs at the age of teen has a severe effect on health cum mental disorder. It’s the responsibility of the parents to be careful and alert at the adolescent period of their children. This is the high time to educate them or make them aware of the serious issues of the society. Be friendly with your children, ask them what they like to do or not, be free with them, play with them, talk with them, spend time with them. Let them enjoy their life in a healthy way.

Drug addiction is a very complex problem but good news is that right treatment and support can help to regain the control of one’s life. Only the first obstacle is to recognize the problem and then to admit it. And obviously, overcoming addiction is a matter of one’s will-power.

It is shocking to know that kids between 12 years to 14 years are more inclined to use meth that too those who are living in small towns than the cities. Again another survey explained that teenagers those parents talk to them about the dangers of drugs and alcohol is 42% less likely to fall on these addictions. So a smooth and regular interaction is of paramount importance in a healthy family. Now a day, anabolic steroids are common among the teenagers and unknowingly they are welcoming liver cancer and reason for heart attack. Often teens use heroin, morphine and codeine and these desperate teens may even steal, prostitute themselves or may engage in some other illegal activities, just to buy these stimulants.

Club drugs are vogue among teens. These drugs are extremely dangerous, when combined with alcohol. Some of the most common date rape drugs are GHB, Rohypnol and Ketamine. All these deadly names cause long term effects on the growth, development and health of the teens.
