[Teen Spawning] Old fart that I am, I was listening to the news on KSL radio this morning. Some national entertainment reporter was all a go-go about Jamie Lynn Spears, Britney's 16-year-old sister. Jamie Lynn is pregnant. But you knew that.
This being a day-after the news broke story, the reporter had to put a consumer-friendly spin on it. She found a psychologist. The question was what should a parent tell a 10-year-old daughter who loves Jamie Lynn that her TV hero is knocked up? Teen idols being knocked off pedestals and all, I guess.
"It's a very difficult situation for parents..." said the shrink, and she psychobabbled on.
It's doesn't seem so hard. I'd try this: "Don't be acting like that fake-baked slut and go out getting pregnant at 16 and bringing a baby home for me to raise."
