MTV's hit cautionary series for sexually active teenagers gave fans a double-dose of teen parenting with two episodes of "16 & Pregnant" (Tue., 10 p.m. ET on MTV). One of those focused on Sarah Roberts, who was the classic model of a typical high school teen. She was doing well in school with aspirations of college.
She had the perfect boyfriend, someone whom she'd been with since junior high. A relationship that blossomed out of a friendship. Sounds perfect, doesn't it?
Unfortunately, Blake couldn't handle the pressure of fatherhood. He and Sarah argued constantly, with Blake lashing out at Sarah's mother even when she came to her daughter's defense. A few weeks after the baby was born, he was out of the picture for good.
She won't be going away to college as she'd planned, but still intends to graduate on time and go to college nearby. Her head is still screwed on straight. But for one lapse in judgment her life would be entirely different.
Roberts posted an updated on HuffPost Teen, where she wrote, "The best advice I could give girls out there is to respect yourself, and never compromise yourself for someone else."
Meet new young moms each week on "16 & Pregnant," Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on MTV.
