Catelynn Lowell’s mom, April Baltierra, just keeps sinking to new levels. If you thought making up fake pregnancy rumors about her own daughter was bad enough, you’ll be shocked to find out that she actually encouraged the Teen Mom star to drop out of high school! Read on to find out more.
“There was a point in life — the cameras never even captured it — that I was pregnant, living at home, and I had to babysit my brother so I quit going to school for four months,” Catelynn Lowell explains during a recent Teen Mom After Show. “And then I asked my mom, ‘Can I go back to school?’ And she got all mad at me because I wanted to go back to school, and she got seriously mad at me for asking to go back to school. And I was like, ‘Well I don’t care, I’m leaving.’” Yup, you read that right. A mother is actually getting mad at her daughter for wanting to go back to school.
But Catelynn Lowell didn’t let her mom’s foolish words keep her down. She said that giving birth to her daughter, Carly, gave her the extra motivation she needed to do something with her life. “I never really knew I wanted to be an adoption counselor until I really started counseling girls and they’d come to me for support, and that’s when I really knew that I loved it,” Catelynn says. “I’d go to the hospitals with them because they were by themselves, and literally just be there for them during the whole hospital time.”
All we can say is…go Catelynn! We’re so proud of her for not listening to her mom and valuing education. She’s such a good role model to young girls, and we wish her all the best.
Are you proud of Catelynn for taking her education seriously, despite her mom’s discouragement? Do you think she will be successful? Share your thoughts with us!
