Jamie Lynn Spears 'pregnant at 16'

Boy, I can't wait to read the Spears' mother's book on parenting.

Early today, we learned that Jamie Lynn Spears, the 16-year-old actress and sister of pop star Britney Spears, is three months pregnant.

Things sure are exciting over there at the Spears' residence. Seems like either one of them just can't wait to destroy their careers so they can play mommy. Honestly, and I'll probably get some flack for this, but a 16 year old isn't going to be the best mother. Sure, there are exceptions out there, 16 year olds with the mind and wisdom of a mature adult who truly weighs the pros and cons of bringing a new life into the world while at such a young age. Of course, this isn't the picture you get when you hear Spears. You picture drunk and drugged up sex-capades, poor-parenting decisions and, for some reason, a trailer. A long, dirty trailer.

The news comes one day after we learned that her mother's book on parenting -- Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World -- has been put on hiatus.

You can take the trash out the trailer park but you can't take the trailer park out from between these girls' legs.

AP reports that the younger Spears is planning to raise her child in Louisiana.

In a wonderful world filled with unicorns and fairies and everything's made of marshmellow waterfalls. The sad thing is that this will cause an uproar. Millions of parents are going to be so judgemental of little Spears, getting knocked-up in the dressing room of her Nickelodeon show and all, when it really isn't her fault. Well, it is, and it isn't. See, the Spears' children probably didn't hear much about sex and responsiblity growing up in a household where mom and dad concentrated so much on pop-careers. While neither Spears child will be winning any awards for brilliance or decision making, instead of a rallying cry about these two being horrible role models for children, take this opportunity to realize that both the Spears' girls are role models. Show your kids what happens when you make bad decisions, don't use protection during sex and use drugs and alcohol in excess in situations where the choices you make will follow you for the rest of your life. Just cause the Spears' kids are playing games with their lives doesn't mean your kids will. All you have to do for them is talk to them. They'll make you feel stupid, tell you to stop bothering them and act like you're a pest, but it'll get through. Trust me, I was young once.
