You Know You’re In Trouble When…Kim Kardashian is advising your teen.

This morning, we were combing the Internet (ironic since we have yet to comb our hair) when we came across this post (see link below) from Kim Kardashian’s blog. For those of you who don’t know, Kim Kardashian is famous for… OK…we’re not really sure.  Well anyway, her blog speaks out about teen pregnancy. While we have nothing against Kim (except that her butt volume is sexy and ours is not), we’re not sure we like the fact that she’s dispensing advice to impressionable young teens. We can just see it now.

“What do you mean you want to pose for Playboy?”

“But Mom. It’s cool.  Kim Kardashian did it.”

Next thing you know, Gina’s 12-year-old will be catching on. “Mommy if I clean your closet, can I get Botox?”

Yes, we would prefer that our daughters get their advice from someone a tad more conservative, say Mother Theresa, for example.

Because as the parents of special children, the last thing we need is a pregnant teen, particularly when it’s hard enough to care for our kids. “Honey, don’t forget to take your Ritalin and your pre-natal vitamins. Oh and please take off that maternity tube top. It’s a school call waiting to happen.”

What would you do if your special child announced they were pregnant (besides pass out)?

    This is what happens when mainstream media takes control and influences young adults.

    Sadly, it happens all the time. Many of our special needs girls feel so unloved that when a boy gives them attention of any kind, they fall for it. I have a 5th grader who is LD and who is majorly neglected-only not enough to be removed from the home. She really hates herself and her life, but when a boy pays attention to her she lights up. She likes teacher attention too, so hopefully we can overcome it, but I doubt it. I can’t tell you how many special need students we have with young moms who were special need too.
