I had never heard of “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” until now. I was looking forward to watching it when I realized it was created by the same person who created “7th Heaven.” However, it was far different than I expected. I had a hard time watching a show where a 15 year old was pregnant and sneaking off to marry another 15 year old while using fake ids. I had a hard time with it being represented that sex “seemed” to be okay for the young high school students. I had higher expectations for the show myself.

About the Show: It’s a season full of bright new beginnings for The Secret Life of the American Teenager. An ABC Family series that has become a cultural phenomenon from coast to coast, The Secret Life of the American Teenager is more engaging than ever in its sensational second season.
