So many factors, but I'd say lack of education (a REAL, comprehensive sexual education) and lack of easily accessible birth control/ contraception.

Blame media, now that's ridiculous. If I listened to media, I would have grown up looking for my prince charming and believing things like dragons exist. Please. Enforce sex education and get parents to actually talk to their kids, and they will be strong enough to make their own decisions in an intelligent manner as opposed to following the media.

I don't think it can be blamed on the media. Almost all of my friends were teen moms and that was way before "Juno". The one thing they all had in common was a poor or non-existent relationship with their fathers and no older brothers protecting them. Maybe it has more to do with the family dynamic than anything else.

Personally I think its a mixture of how over sexed tv, music, and the rest of the media industries are, which teach children to be fashionable and sexy and flirtatious from a younger age, they have no time of innocence now really if you think about it. Also people teach kids how to use computers way to early in their life the internet should not be for children.Not to sound anti girl power or anything but, lets face it, these times of women being gung ho in the work place probably arent helping considering its important that they are there to set an example for their daughters. Instead this whole generation of kids are basically left to their own devices for the sake of their parents making more money. Next we have abstinence only sexual education, come on seriously? Like that was going to work.

I think teen pragnancy is on the rise, because Mothers are not who they use to be. I remember the old saying like never before. It takes a village to raise a child; now in days the village is a battle field and it's taking a tow on young teens today. I have a 13 year old niece who's giving birth today. Did I mention she's 13. I know it's sad
