DD (age 11) caught the story and wanted some background and detail. I mentioned she was Brittney's sister. Her response: "well, duh, this is not the brightest and best functioning family. whaddya expect?"

We've also got one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the western world.
No I just was using data from 2005 from here Teen Pregnancy Prevention: National Teen Pregnancy and Birth Data - General Facts and Stats

Most developed countries have a problem with not enough kids. So while I'm not advocating getting teens pregnant as a solution, I'm not particularly troubled by our teens having kids as long as there is a father in the picture, but Jamie Lynn is just too young.

The main problem with teen girls having kids is that they are almost always unable to financialy support the kid. That won't be a problem for Jaime Lynn. Even if her acting career is over because of this i'm sure that as the lead actress of a tv show for several years she has a 7 figure bank account. Even if she falls short of money you know that auntie Britney will be there with her $100 million to help out. Also, in teen pregnancy the father is usually not in the picture but in this case he is so that's also a none issue. She'll be fine.

Except she probably lacks the maturity needed to be a good parent - one who makes reasonable decisions and has good judgment.
