Teen Mom on MTV good or bad?

Ok so I'm 24 (25 in one more month) and I've been watching MTV since my family got cable t.v. back in 1991.
To get to the point I tend to gravitate towards MTV (if not ESPN) when I'm bored or its late night.
There is a show called Teen MOM that started from 16 and Pregnant.
I don't know how to feel about this show.
The Good.
It shows the true hardships that Teenage Moms go through.
There is not one really happy Mom on that show so I guess that serves as a warning for majority of teenage moms.
The ladies Love their babies and seem to want to do anything to make them happy, while barely scratching and surviving themselves.
I think only one of them Graduated highschool (not positive though).
I do see things like Help hotlines being promoted.

The Bad.
Could this be promoting, hey if you have a baby at a young age, you too can be on MTV?
Along with the bad, they show a lot of the good. Some of those things, ease the minds of teenage girls having babies.
I don't think I have seen One Safe Sex ad (condoms, birth control) being promoted on that show.

I know that this is reality TV and its entertaining for some people, but I can't really determine if this is a good message to send out to the youth of this generation.

I mean I'm sure shows like Jersey shore and house wives aren't exactly education tv, but should there really be a show about teenage moms?
I feel for some of them, but one of them really irritates me and that is Farrah.
No other Mom on that shows complains more about struggling and finding a guy more than she does. (When I feel she is the most attractive)
On top of that she claims to be so broke, when yet she had to get a new car, and gets a 2009 Dodge Caliber.
She has the nicest apartment of all of them.
We know MTV pays them, so on top of them "working" they also get paid from MTV (I don't know exactly how much but I do know Real world cast makes about 30-50k for the 6 weeks their on the show).

I know for a fact their are girls in worst situations.

I guess my gripe is Why have a show like this, and not constantly plug Safe Sex advertisement.
I mean we know their not going to preach abstinence so why not preach the opposite?

September Update 9/13

I don't know how I only manage to keep up with this blog once a month... Especially when I look at the blogs im following atleast once a week.

Since the last post... That situation didn't work out, but then another one arose, in which you guessed it hasn't been working out for the best either.
There are a lot of factors in to the new one that just isn't really favorable to either of us at this moment.
When there is a movie about my life, I would like it to be titled "Right Situation; Wrong time: The Life Story of Anthony Hawkins!" the other title would be "Half Naked, All man: The life Story of Anthony Hawkins!"

But I digress, its frustrating to say the least being put in good situations, but it not working out. That's when you always have to question Whats in Store for me, what can I help change?

Well moving on As I was reading Tiffani's Blog
There was an interesting post about 30 Days of Truth. Which seems something that is just interesting but also something that I probably need to do.
It basically seems to have you review your life. and put out on paper/blog and helps you in so many terms.. Speak out loud.
So What I'm going to do is start on it this month. Then the whole month of October Work on them, and hopefully get them on this blog site. I may start a new one. (Time for some change so why not?)

Here are the 30 days of Truth questions.
