Snooki vs. Teen Mom Cast: Who Is a Better Role Model for Moms?
Reformed Jersey Shore party girl Snooki has really changed her ways since she gave birth to her first child, Lorenzo. The 25-year-old star has given up drinking, stopped tanning, and has settled down with her fiancé, Jionni LaValle. But is the petite star a better mom role model than her MTV compatriots, the Teen Mom stars?
There's no doubt that Snooki is an awesome mom but, as we saw from the Teen Mom cast, adjusting to fame and a new baby can be difficult. Luckily, Snooki is older, wealthier, and more established than the Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant cast members. Plus, Lorenzo is 5 months old now and is doing great thus far! In fact, Snooki can't stop tweeting and Instagramming about her little man.
Also, while Teen Mom stars like Amber and Farrah have admitted to getting involved in drugs and drinking after the birth of their first children, we can’t imagine Snooki going down the same path. For one thing, Snooki’s reformed ways prove to us that she is serious about raising her child in a healthy and safe environment. Plus, she and Jionni have an excellent, close-knit circle of family and friends, so they have a great support system to fall back on when things get stressful.
We don’t fault the Teen Mom girls for not being perfect mommies 24/7. They are open about their struggles while raising a child in often unpleasant circumstances. Plus, they all make a point of advocating safe sex for teenagers so they don’t go down the same path.
