A new dramatic web series about teen pregnancy on the Public Internet Channel
The lives of two teenagers are forever altered as their emotional journey from childhood to adulthood comes to a close.
His mom nedds to be suprtive.i was 15 years old when my girlfriend got pregnent. i am now 18 years old and i have a 3 year old son. when i found out my girlfriend then and she is still my girlfriend now. when i found out that she was pregnent i was very very pissed off and angrey. she wasnt going to have an abortion with out me saying that im ok with it. she said to take a week and think about it dont take it lightly. i thaught about it for 5 days then when i went to school the next day i pulled her aside away from everyone (it was lunch in middle school i was in 8th grade) we walked to the back of the school where there were no camoras and we sat down and talked i told her “IM GOING TO SUPPORT YOU IN EVERY WAY YOU KEEP THE BABYY AND I WILL SUPORT YOU YOU HAVE AN ABOTION ANI WLL UPORT YOU”. she looked at me an wanted to know if this is my final anser i told her yes. as i said im 18 years old now. she is also 18 we are both born in march. me and my girlfrien are so luckly to have a son. we samed him Alex. his birthday is 3 days after mine and 4 days befor my girlfriends birthday. me and my gilfriend our bithdays are a week apart 7 days. this is me personaly “IF II HAD TO I WOULD TAKE A BULLET FOR MY GIRLFRIEND AND MY SON” “HELL I WOULD DIE FOR THEM” “I LOVE THEM SO MUCH THEY MEAN THE WORLD TO ME” i live in tracy ca. i am now in my senior year of high school an at the high school i got to there is maybe 200 kids at the most no more. out of al of the girls at the school 85% of them have a son or daughter, are pregnent ir have had an abortion. it is very had to find out that you or your girlfriend is pregnent my first thaught was “IM NEVER HAVING SEX AGAIN” now we have sex every now and them but we know evey time if she gets pregnent we know what we are going to do we are going to keep the baby no matter what. me and my girlfriend just celibrated our 3 and a half year aniversory to gether. we met at a new years eve party.
my girlfriend had our baby boy vaginaly. her was 8 lbs and 10 oz. now for my situation mymom and dad werent there at the hospitle with me when my girlfriend was giving birth. thery were at home. so when the doctor told every one to leave that there was not enough room for everyone in the delivery room she was told that she could pick one person to stay with her while she had her baby. she chose me. so in the delivery room it was just her and i. and of couse the doctors. i rember her pushing the baby out. and hearing her screaming an i know i couldt take the pain away that she would need to workk through the pain. that was the happiest moment in my life when my son was born. i remember him crying i started to tear up when he was born. when i was told that i could no longer stand by herr side after he was born i looked at the doctor and said are you for real? you are going to have me leave now. he responded yes we need you to go to theh waiting room because it is better for the baby if he is place on her naked chest with in the first 2 minutes of his birth. i responded an said im mnot ging any were her chest is nothng i have not seen be for. during her pregnency i helped her get dressed and helped her take a shower because she couldnt do it on her own that she couldnt because she had a hard time cleaning herself.i asked him do you have kides? he told me yes. then i asked him what would you have done i after your kid was born you were told that you had to go to the wainting rom untill she was moved to the recovery room what would you have done? he stood there for a second and said i would do the same thing you are doing. and told “ok you can stay an im sorry for trying to make you leave” i told him no need to say your sorry. then i went back by my girlfriends side. she tooked at me and said thanks for not leaving me hear alone.i will never forget the moment my first child was born as long as i live. i will also never forget the pain that she went through and the helpless felling that i had as she gave birth.

Incredible writing, acting, series.
Thank you for making it.
for Q#5: Her first name is derived from his name so i think that’s cool even if she doesn’t have his last name. And since it seems like he’s in it for the long run so it could be changed in the future.
Well i would have to say this acctul made me look at the bad sides of have a kid. Becuse it is hard to deal with and i am glad i found this. I wish i could show this to all the people in my school befor they do something they wish they never did we have had 14 girld pregent in my school. And i am glad i was not one of them but its sad to wach the dad leaf them and yopu haveto find a man who will stay with you till the very end.But i would still watie.
p.s. make more!
it would be cool if they made more
Im responding to Q#5. I think the name instance was decided by the fact that they are not married and that this name is cooler than the other way around could eva be.
It must have been tence in the hallway with lonies mom and the girls parents YIKES
Overall I would say that this was a good series, but the ending with Lonnie holding his baby made it seem like the pregnancy was the hardest part and that once the baby is born its all a smooth ride. I think to better educate everyone, a second series should be made.
after watching this series, its me wonder why so many kids are still going out and having sex, when they know that pregnency can happen. Lonnie did the right thing by not leaving, in the clip after the finale it shows he does care and wants that baby in his life.
I would like to see a second season of this, it was really interesting to watch. I really want to know what happens to them in the future. I’m glad Lonnie stuck around and I hope their baby has a good life! The end was slightly anti-climatic though! This series was very informative and I’m glad we watched it.
it was nice and mature of tyes dad to call lonnie and let him know she was going into labor even though he isnt to fond of him.
I was kinda suprised that tye’s mom actually left the room and let Lonnie be in there with her while she’s having the baby. I liked how the ending had Lonnie and baby, shows that he might step up and take responsibility. This was a really good series, it shows teens that if you have sex your life can end up somewhat like this.
I think that this show shows people that having a baby is not al fun and games it’s serious and it can hurt people in your family and the ones you care about if you get pregnant
I think it was a great series! i’d love to see a season two, but at the end i’m still confused about the “homies” and how that’s gonna play out.
I really liked how Lonnie stayed with Ty and the baby! I just wish that the series showed the parents reactions to the birth.. I thought it was really nice how Ty wanted Lonnie to stay in the room instead of her mom and dad, that just shows how much she wants them to be a family, together.
I thought that the episode was very good at showing the dangers and the emotions that go with actually having a baby. I thought this episode was quite informative.
As a health teacher trying to educate young people about the choices that they are faced with I am always looking for something to help students understand the importance of their choices. This series has been a great tool to use for teaching sex education. It is so important to get their attention and have a good base to begin talking about the issues associated with sexual responsibility. The 9ine series was the near perfect jumping off point to bring up so many discussions! I especially loved that it focused on the male’s side of the situation and the group discussions that the “dads” have at their support groups were very helpful for the young men in my class. The format was great for my classroom setup. I showed one episode a day ( since they take less than 10 minutes) we had time for a follow up discussion immediately afterward. Nine episodes worked well into my planning time since I have only about 2 weeks to cover a variety of sexual topics, so it allowed for me to also do other activities on the subject. I am so excited for a second series – although I do not know yet how I will fit it all in. A couple of times, I brought my classes to the computer lab and had them watch and blog about it ratherindividually rather than a large group discussion. A great option
to use to keep it mixed up and allow each student an opportunity to get their opinions voiced. I can tell you the students were GLUED to each and every episode often begging me to let them watch another one, So if you are a teacher looking for an innovative and up to date, and interesting way to engage your students and stimulate discussion about sexually based topics and teen pregnancy – give this series a try – you will not be disappointed. This was my first time using this series as a major part of my curriculum and it was so easy to use and was so enjoyable for my students that I most definitly will be looking forward to more classroom discussions!
Amazing video. Its really emotional. Keep updating the new videos, I would love to watch it.
Wonderful series. Why not a TV series like the above viewer commented? We need this type of interesting, professional show. Why not distribute them at the Library?
WONDERFUL!! Please make more!! I wish this would come on television.
I really enjoyed thi show alot!! At some points it made me just want to beat the f*** out of Tye’s mom. Glad Lonnie was there for Tye during the birth, thats how it should be. And as for everyone who talked down on teenage parents, yes you should wait to have a baby and everything but everyone maes mistakes. These people just need to own up to what they did and raise their child as if they were adults in their late 20′s. I respect that Tye made the right choice by having the baby, because no baby should ever be aborted. It isn’t the baby’s fault that it came to be… All in all though I can relate to Tye because I am 18 years old and I am 5 months into my pregnancy and at times have felt the same way she did. But my boyfriend is there for me and we even got our very own place. As to the writers, please make a second season, I want to see how Tye and Lonnie do with their new baby girl.
i love this show. it sure it has thought young teens a lesson about having sex. we don’t expect for teenages to not have sex but we can tell them about the consequences of having unprotected sex. i have learned alot from this show you guys need to continue this show . it is the best i have ever seen in my entire life.
At the moment I’m living that moment. I’m 16 and pregnant, undecided and unprepared. I have a very supportive baby daddy. And I sure do have supportive friends. The baby daddy and I have already talked about what “if” I get pregnant so telling him wasn’t a shock it was overemotional. The future for me is unpredictable. I don’t have time to think. I have so much to think about before the baby comes in and time flies by. I have thought about adoption, but I’m keeping it and the thought of having a baby daddy that supports me through whatever decision I make is relieving. The tough part hasn’t even come yet. Hopefully I’m prepared. I’m determined right now but unprepared and scared. seeing lonnie hold the baby made me cry. you’re not a daddy until you see that little face. You’re a mother when your pregnant because the life is attached to you since day one
I think they should have a second season! This show is like real life it’s amazing! my fav eposiode was when Ty stood up to her mom saying Lonnie would be there when the baby is born. If you dont wanna have a baby then use protection. This show shows how it could be really difficult to have a baby at such a young age and not being able to do what you want. This show should keep going on! Its really good.
Wow! These comments are amazing. I’m so happy that the series is so relatable. “9ine” makes it very clear that having a child (especially at a young age) is TOUGH.
We often forget that our actions/decisions affect those around us. It’s safe to assume that sexually active teens who aren’t using protection fail to take that into consideration. Trying our best to build awareness….
Teens know how to have sex.But they do not know how to care of baby.Think before you do guys.I really like this show because it shows you how diffucult it is having baby while you are old enogh to have baby.My parent do not talk about it because they know that i won’t do it because of my religion you can not have sex until you married.But if you have sex and you not married that mean you going hell until you forgive allah(muslim god).
i dont really know which one i liked the most they were all very good i really wish they would be longer tho. I felt the strongest about the fact that her dad was very supportive and her mom tryed but i think its important for the family of a pregnant teen to try and put their anger and mixed emotions aside and focus on whats truley important beacause a teen in that position is most likley already scared and confused and also the hormones and they are probley still trying grasp the concept of having another living thing growing inside of them and all of these things are really stress full and could affect the baby what is truley important is to support and comfort her and to let her know that it will be difficult but that it will be ok
Wow this episode was amazing!! i cant believe the parents didnt argue lolz but i think it was one of the best episode i have seen.I liked disscussing it in class it made it easiier to understand and we get to hear what other people say about it also. i overall loved the series. i learned that if i do ever become pregnant at a young agwe i:ll know how my parents would react and what i:ll be going through. but over all i am going to wait until i”m married better for me and also my parents i would really like to see the the second series of this show. i would like to see what the baby looks like, how lonnie and tyler are doing, see if they are doing alright or if they are spareted or even knowing if they are arguing alot. and see if their parents are doing okay with the baby around..
i just hope they’re more series coming!! to the producers this is one of the best show the explains what teens go through when they have a baby in their life. show how the parents are. it truly explains alot of the true life of a teen parent thanks!
- love life:)-
really liked the episode where Tyler yells at her mom like it really shows how she had enough of her, and then the mom starts to realize that she needs to be there for her daughter. I think that what Tyler did when she choose Lonny to stay in the dilivery room with her was a good idea cause he is the father of the child and he has every right too..
i thihnk that when people come to having sex they dont think about the consequences they just think it to get it out of your system or they think that they are in love
My favorite episode would be this one because it’s rare that the father of the child is there. What i found that was strongest was Lonnie because he went up to tylers dad and told him that what ever it takes hes going to be there for tyler and the baby also to get a job and finish school. I feel ok discussing it in class even though sometimes people joke about it way to much. I can talk to my mom about this but not my dad i don’t feel comfortable even bringing up the topic. i liked the ending i can’t wait for another series. I think Lonnie will stick around with Tyler and take care of their child. For the baby she will have her daddy around which is good cause most teen dads just ditch right on the spot. For the parents they might be their for support but other then that i really don’t know. Yes i would like to see the second series, i want to know what happens with Lonnie and Raven and see how things turn out when Tyler finds out all this since i expect that Lonnie never told Tyler about her. But imexcited to see what you come up with for the series
My favorite episode was this one. I liked how Lonnie was there when the baby was born and how it showed him very sentimental towards the baby. I think that Tyler not giving up after Lonnie telling her that no one told her to have the baby and she still kept the baby was the strongest about the series. Also just her keeping the baby and not doing what most teens do these days showed that she was strong and responsible. Discussing it in class was pretty cool especially hearing the STUFF that our peers said i enjoyed talking about it, we can actually learn a lot from it. I really think that discussing situations like this one with parents is a very stong tactic. I didnt really like how Lonnie’s mom was at the beginning of the sries when she would blame it on Tyler, also Tylers mom when she wouldnt give her much support and would blame Lonnie. I really learned that early sex is no safe sex and also aint the right thing to do. Sex isnt just sex it carries a lot of RESPONSIBILITY and if u don’t plan on changing your future career plans or just your future life I would wait on sex till your ready and mature. I would really enjoy seeing another the second series on this because its just very good to see and it teaches a lot to young teens who become teen parents and feel that they should give up.
I liked the last one cause the suspense was over and it made me happy that Lonnie stayed.
I felt strongest about the fact that they finally had the guy playing hero instead of villian.
I enjoyed discussing it in class, although it would be kind of awkaward talking to my parents about it.
I really enjoyed that the finally had something like this with a “good guy.”
I took away that teenage pregnancies are very stressful. I really want to see a follow series for this show so I know how the financial and other issues are resolved.
My favorite episode was when ty’s family had that huge fight with each other because after that fight it seemed that it brought the family a lot closer than they were at first.I like this series because i felt like how most people sterotype the mom and dads of the teenager like how the dad is the one that does not really support the whole thing.It was a great change to have the roles reversed between ty’s mom and dad it really showed that sometimes the roles are reversed.i felt that this series should contiune because the show kind of left us hanging and didnt really show anything after the birth of the child.
I feel okay during class when we are talking about sex and stuff, just becuase i think our age group is growing up having sex at a young age and more and more teen pregnancy in high school,its become a big deal .I think that teen pregnancy has become like a accpect situation in high school now. I think schools should take more time to give more information about the struggles with teen pregnancy and i think some girls are getting pregnant and are happy and think they will have a perfect baby and life etc.. then they have their baby and they learn life isnt like that at all.
i liked the eighth episode the best because it showed how loonie feels about their situation. i thought that tyler needs to be more patient towards loonie and loonie needs to be more supportive towards tyler and understand his moms concerns. disscussing the clips in class helped me understand better. i have talked to my parents about teen pregancy but i prefure to do it in class its way less one on one. i liked the series it shows alot about the different point of views of both the mom and dad involved in a teen pregnacy. i think their baby will be fine because of all the people she’ll have supporting her. i dont think loonie and tyler will stay together in the end though. yes i would like to see a second series to this show because it left you hanging in the end and i want to see how things pan out for the family.
i think that the episodes are pretty cool. i liked every episode. one thing that i thnk you could change is make the episodes a little longer in time and add a couple more shows to the whole series. i thhink that the overall rating is that they were really good shows to watch.
my favorite episode would have to be MAY, due to the fact that it is the end of the pregnancy and you get to meet the baby, along with the quarrels of the families are starting to come to an end.I don’t like how it ended abruptly with no real conclusion.A second series would be nice, but try not to use the same plot.
idk what was up with that other chick that called him. i think that he should have went to taco bell and got a sick pack and a lb. life would have been so much easier for him. even i the end he looked very happy and scared at the same time. so even if ur thinking about sex double it or trouble!
really chase you could have put that in a better way idot
~From Marshall’s Health Class
This episode was probably one of my favodrites. I think Ty must have felt RELIEVED to finally have the baby and Lonnie seemed very happy that she did, he even shed a few tears. Overall, this has been a very educational and just amazing series. 9ine has taught me more about the dangers of teen pregnancy and the family feuds that can come from those. And no, my parents and I barely briefed over teen pregnany or what it’s even like to be pregnant at a young age. I know they care and all but I think it’s mostly because some parents just have high expectations set for their children that there isn’t any time for conversations like those. I’ve been taught in school and appreciate series’ like 9ine and will use them to the best of my advantage. Thank you again to the producers of 9ine and I would love to see another one of your creative works!
P.S. You definitely have my vote for the Telly Awards : ]
They cant stop there. They need show them as parents. I disliked the last episode because it was to short to show what really happens and it was unclear. They need to make another series explaining how hard raising a child really is.
i enjoyed this series a lot! the only thing i would change is mabye have the series carry on. like show the next year or so of the babys life to show teens how hard it is to raise a small child, otherwise it was EXELENT!
I LIKEED THE LAST ONE BECAUSE IS GAVE ME SOME CLOSURE AND KNOWING THAT LONNIE STAYED. iT WAS A GREAT WAY TO END IT WELL PRODUCED!!!!!!:)
This was my fav episode. I felt strongest about how the parents stepped up and helped the kids. i felt that discussing this in class really set up some serious controversy and some serious points. i feel that i could talk to my parents about this i just chose not to. i couldnt really pick wat i liked about this series but there is nothing i disliked. i learned to double up. I think that they would end up having a great family. yes i would love to see a second series.
I liked this episode because it brought everyone together whether they wanted too or not. But it was the shortest episode and needed to be much longer (including the other ones) overall, the series was pretty good and gave insight to a real teen pregnancy but more explination of the characters feelings would be much better.
Well, Lonnie did not go to Taco Bell when she was having the baby. That is kind of disappointing, i thought he would have went there. That’s what Taylor’s mom did. I also thought it was kind of cool that Lonnie actually stayed there and held up his word about staying. I felt discussing it in class helped me sort of realize what my mom went through when she had me. She was still going through high school, and still managed to graduate, and graduated a semester early. Overall, this was a very good serious. It should continue, and I think that every high school should watch the videos to learn about teen pregnancys.
this episode was not the greatest, it left me hanging more then usual, they threw in that other character for no reason, talking about some “homeboys” which confused me to no end!
class discusions are not that good because about 3/4 of the class takes the 1st opinion as their own.
My Dad doesn’t even talk about it and the way people talk about this topic should worry people because parents don’t say anything about it, but that can be how common it is in house holds that the kids are in charge, not the parents.
i like how the topic wasn’t only the baby, but never told everything that having a kid can affect; we are told they affect everything, you only show a few, people don’t believe tell they see. I disliked how it never showed ty and lonnie’s mom never talked.
In the future, i think Lonnie would be getting 2 jobs a day and night job and never have time for the baby or tyler besides complaining he is tired. Tyler might go back to school or just be a stay at home mom. The baby would grow up to use daddy against mommy.
i would like to see a second series of when the baby grows up.
i liked all of them cuase it teachis you to not have sex until you are ready to have kids. i felt like ever health classes should have to talk and see this vidoes.i can talk to my mom and dad about this cuase they are careing and they told me if i have questions I can come and talk to the. i think if this was a real life think i they would stay together and take care of it and love it I HOPE YOU MAKE A 2 ONE
my favorite episode was the 8th episode. I think the mom needs to take a chill pill shes kind of hating him too much. i liked the discussions in class they were interesting.i didnt like how it leaves you hanging at the end. i would love to see the next series to this show.
my favorite episode is when lonnie meets the parents because the dad has a very intense moment lonnie and the mom is very mean. When we discussed this in class it gave me an overall view of what was going on and things that i missed myself. I believe that i could talk to my parents about this because it is something that is now a every day thing in teens. I like the meetings that the soon to be dads have, but i dislike the ending it leaves you not knowing what happens and the shows should be longer then like ten mintues each! I learned how hard it would be to maintain a certain lifestyle that you are used to if you or your girlfriend was to get pregnant with all the problems that come with the baby and the stress put on the relationship because of the pregnancy. I hope that Lonnie would stay around but i think that he would not be able to stay around while in a relationship with Tyler but still be there for the baby. I would like to see another seris of this show or one like it i really like watching it even tho i do not like how it leaves out a lot of key details!!
My favorite episode was the first one beacuse we got to to know what was all going on and how this whole situation begun. I felt that even though the couple didnt seem like they were really even into eachother i still like how Lonnie stepped up i give you props man. Yes i can talk about this stuff to my parents beacuse i have freinds and family who have gone through this situation like my cousin and was able to stick it through no matter how hard it was i didnt like the ending it was way confusing like who is that girl and what did she mean by or im telling the homies when she was on the phone with Lonnie. I liked it overall i was very education i think it helped alot of people think maybe we should wait to have sex or maybe we should have only when we feel were ready and actually in love. I would like to see a second series because it would answer all the questions I have and it would answer my big question who the heck is that mysterious girl and what she mean shes telling the homies
WOW. what an ending to the series. overall i found 9ine really inspiring. these days it seems like everyone around us(in highschool) is having sex. it surprises me how people have no clue that there is such a thing has waiting. i am even more surprised when many of them have preagnancy scares or are actually preagnant and have no idea how it happened. this episode did not glamorize preagnancy like other shows. i loved watching the characters grow and mature. my favorite episode was definantly the last one. when lonnie was crying i could see that he became a “father” at that point. it was a great ending. i do wish that it would have gone further into their lives. i would not mind it if the show would be an hour long so that we could know more about each character. i enjoyed discussing this in class. it was a great oppurtinityto see what other teens thought about preagnancy. i can’t talk to my parents about these things. they are very conservative. i do not feel that has affected me in a bad way though. i just get my information from other places. i would for there to be a season 2.
i think the episodes should be longer. the last episode was too confusing.
My favorite episode was the March when the mom got yelled at. It shows what would happen in real life with the familys and all of the emmotion going on through the pregnancy. It was nice discussing in class because you got to hear other peoples opinions on each topic and you get a different view on each one. Can talk with parents i would say. I liked these videos but it left a lot out and i wish it would have explained the people better and stuff. I also wish it would have been longer. I learned how their are so much emmotions through the pregnancy. I think that Lonnie would stay with Ty and the baby. Ty’s parents would have a stronger relationship. And Lonnies parent wouldn’t really have to deal with the baby as much as Ty’s parents would. I would like to see a second series and hopefully the videos would be longer and explain more so it doesnt leave you as hanging but it still does leave you hanging. Example. The ending was decent if their would have been another video but it’s just like their off the face of the earth at the end.
good job on 9ine i like the episodes when she was yelling at the mom
This last episode was not as intrestring as all the others but it was nice to see lonnie there and choosing to take care of the baby and when lonnie started to cry he showed his feelings of happyness and how he wants to be there. my favorite eposide would be the time wehn taylor was yelling at her mother, beacuse it showed how really it got. i would like tto keep on watching more eposides and hopeing there would be more longer.
I didnt like the last episode bacause if i dont see anymore of them it just puts me on edge way much. The storngest of the episodes would probably be the 8th one beacuse it really showed what its is like. And i did learn a lot beacus never know teen dad so dont know their views.
man i dont realy have a favorite episode why cause wat i realy like about the this is that it teaches you thing and not to have a kid so young also i want to know wats up with the girl that call him befor he went into the room man comw on BRO dont be hateing and make a second sesson off these and pls IM GOING TO LET YOU KNOW FROM A FATHERS HEAT DONT HAVE KIDS AT A YOUGH AGE CAUSE ITS GOING TAKE YOU”RE WHOLE FEUTRE AWAY IF YOU ARE NOT READY TO HAVE A KID PLS DONT HAVE A KID
My favorite episode in this series is the one where Tyler and her dad finally stand up to her mom, because I think parents need to realize that itls not THEIR life, it’s their kid’s. I liked how realistic this series was, and I thought it was a really interesting way to learn about our health unit. If I could change something, I would’ve made the episodes longer, around 15-20 minutes. Overall, I thought it was a very good series, and I hope they make a second one in which we get to see how Tyler and Lonnie deal with teen parenthood.
My favorite episode was March when she stood up to her mom. I didn’t like how Tyler’s parents were blaming everything on Lonnie until the end. It was pretty fun discussing it in class, it is something that could and does actually happen. I probably could talk to my parents about this kind of stuff, but I don’t. I liked the series, but the end was not what I expected, it just ends. If this was real, I would predict that Lonnie would stay with Tyler for a while, and they would start getting along better, but something would eventually happen and he would leave. I would like to see another series, with stricter parents who haven’t gone through anything like this, so they wouldn’t know how to act, or what to do.
i thought the 2nd to last episode was the best because it showed the fighting and probably how realistic it would be when your in the midst of a pregnancy. but then it also showed the mom coming around and being pretty supportive towards her daughter. the strongest feeling in this is when lonnie would go to those group meetings and some of the guys in the meeting would just tick me off becasue they had no clue what they were talking about most of the time. i did enjoy disscusing these videos in class. and i can most defenately talk to my paretns about these sort of issues or things. i loved these series i just wish it would be alittle longer becasue i love it! but maybe they could put more info in the show because at some points things they say could go many different ways. i would absolutely love to see another series come out!!!!

Oh, that’s good.
Ashley thats a very good post. But the meetings also ticked me off didnt like the guy with 4 kids already he is a tard.
i liked the episode when tyler and her dad where yelling at there mom and because of the of she changed in a good way.
I think possibly the last episode was the best and my favorite. Discussing these in class was a good idea, I think. That way everyone can share their opinion! You guys should make another series with longer episodes that have more details. (:
I liked this series. Especially Episode 8 because it shows all the tension and drama of teen pregnancy. I thought this was a realistic look at Teen Pregnancy. When we discussed it everyone had different views which I liked. I din’t like the ending! I think Ty and Lonnie might make it but not if Lonnie is threatened into staying.
It was very good on how Lonnie stayed through to the end and was there for ty and his child. i hope that there is a follow through in a second series or season. Was this a real situation because for the most part i thought this was a just actors in a scenario but the interview part at the end threw me for a loop thinking that wait is this actually a followed real life situation.
I thought that it was funny how her mom still tried to make Lonnie leave even during the birthing process.
my favorite episode was this one because she finally had her baby. and it seems that lonnie’s gunna stay with her and help. yeah i can discuss this with my parents i guess? i think they should have ended it later because i wanna know what happens after.
This episode was very short and didn’t make much sense but it was cool to see Lonnie there
i think the last episode was the worst what was up with the other girl.
My favorite episode was probably was the last one, but i didnt like the ending and it kind of just leaves you hanging there with nothing made clear to you.i liked it, becasue Lonnie was there for her in the end, he just got a case of cold feet, but then it shows that he was taking care of the baby. it he said that it was the only time that they got to be alone because he might give the baby a beer. it also shows that he didnt leave because it was a girl. i think it was really inportant that they talked about how guys will say whatever to get with you, but then they will end up leave. that you shouldnt say things that you dont mean.i think that it was good that we talked about it in class, because then i got a different perspective about things from different people.i can talk about this with my parents.i really liked all the different topics that they talked about in this show.how they showed real issues and didnt make everything so perfect like alot of shows do. they didnt make it look cool to have kids.
My favorite episode is March when the mom finally is talked back to. I think this series really shows a life situation, but just shows what they do and not how they did it. Discussing it in class was really fun because of all the things we came up with to discuss and see each others view points on each topic. Overall I think this series is great. I learned how difficult it is to try and find support from others. I think that if you choose to make another series it should be about the childs first years and how difficult it can be.
I felt very strong about tylers mother point of view, i though that she hade the right to be mad. I think that the parant is a big part of the situation.
I really like how we talked about the situation of the boy in my class room.
i would recommend a second serious.
what was your favorite episode?why?
My favorite episode would have to be, March because she stood up to her mom and it showed that theres other issues that tie into a pregnancy with other drama the family has. Also i think that the stongest aspect to the series was the conflicts between tye and and her mom and lonnie and his mom there were complete opposites. I really liked the series and hope theres a second series!
my Fav. episode was April because it was leggit and its the month i was BORN!. i felt dat this made me more aware of how i DO IT.i dont think i would be like lonnie and all wen hey talk to tylers dad!.i hate that this is SOOOO SHORT >:O
.one thing fer sure if ur a dude and got ur girl prego DONT LEAVE HER NIGGA!
Hope there’s a second season. I didn’t like the way this series ended….
I enjoyed the series very much. i can somewhat relate to them. My favorite episode was when Ty finally stood up against her mom. The episodes (though being about 10 minutes) tell a great story. The thing that kind of irritated me though was that the last episode kind of cuts out in the middle of the climax. I REALLY hope that you make another series like this.
these series are great, but i hate how it always just ends without telling the whole story. Loney is good for being more of a part of lionas life. I hope these continue but with more ending and more information of how everything leads to the next episode. Thanks

my favorite episode was the one the boy lonnie went to the girls father and tells him that he is welling to be there after the baby is born.
I really enjoyed the series, you guys put it into a perspective that was emotional and powerful. Ty actually reminds me of my best friend and ty’s mom and her mom are exactly alike, and I imagined what I would do if my best friend and I were to actually have a baby, and although we’re not dating we’re still emotionally wrapped up and I really love her, so to think of my friend in an emotional state as her all I would do is show love to her and help her the best, but I understand as Lonnie showed that I would be really stressed along with others also. I remember what that older guy said in the group help session about love and respect, it’s true, if you don’t love your mom or sister or those in your life, how will anyone expect you to show love and respect to your girl or baby. It’s not about sex it’s about love and if someone can’t understand that, they shouldn’t think about the risk of having a baby.
Well said Jairus. Couldn’t agree more. And thanks for checking out the series.
My favorite episode of 9ine was March, when Tylers dad went off on her mom. It was just good for the dad because he got to stick up for his daughter when she really coudnt do anything else but yell back. What i felt was the strongest part in this series was how Lonnie stayed there for Tyler. Even though he thought about not being there he still did. I felt like it was a great discussion in class, everyone pretty much got involved. I dont know if I can talk to my dad about stuff like this, I’ve never tried to before. But what I liked about 9ine was just how this could be a situation anyone could be put into. What I dislike is how short each episode was, even though each of the episodes were good. What I learned from this is always wear protection and just be safe. What I think will happen is that Lonnie will stay around and that the parents will get along more, also that Lonnies mom and Tylers parents will get along. I would like to see a second series but what i would want to see in this next series is that the episodes are longer.
This was a good series…although i think something else could have been added to the ending. I hope there’s a season 2, to see how Tye and Lonnie are handling being parents.
This would have to be my favorite episode, but i think there should be more added to the ending. I think you guys should make a second series on how they are dealing with the baby.
i think the lonnie did good by keeping his word and being there for ty. i think lonnie will stay but their will be lots of truoble. i liked how the episode didn’t get grafic with the birth.
ugliest baby ive ever seen. i wanna kick it.
ur dumb matt wow
WHAT THE HECK MATT
I think this show seems pretty realistic it should be taught at every highschool. It really makes kids open there eyes.
My bad Matt. I wrote this.
What a dumb thing to say Matt, because there is no such thing as an ugly baby. As for you, I think you were the exception, and that is why you are hating!!
Haha Alex, remember to bring your pride, because i’ll be taking it.
Go do your work!
Okay. ill bring ALL of my pride and leave with all of yours too
My favorite episode was the one in March, because Tyler finally stood up to her mom. It was interesting seeing what people in our class had to say about the episode, like everyone’s feelings were different. Yes, i can talk to my parents about all this stuff, we have an open relationship. My dislikes about this series; they were too short, and i didn’t like the way the very last one ended left me with a lot of questions. I really enjoyed watching these though, very interesting. I would definitly watch another series.
My favorite episode was March, when Ty’s dad told off her mom. I felt the strongest about the fact that Ty kept the baby, because that’s the right thing to do. I felt as though everyone was very opinionated talking about it in class. Yes, my parents are very open about these things. I liked how the series showed different stages of the relationship between Ty, her parents, and Lonnie. I didn’t like the things that were never explained, and the things left open. Too much was left to interpretation. Some would be ok, just not that much. From this series, I got how much a baby can change people. It takes over all your priorities, and it can cause people to show their true colors, like how selfish some people are, and how they put themselves first, even when a baby is concerned. I think Lonnie is or is going to cheat on/leave Ty. This could be from the sudden responsibility or because her parents keep pushing him away.I would like to see another series, but I think less loose ends should be left.
Amazing it was so good i loved it thank you all for what your doing kids need to know this stuff so i thank you
Taylor Up there…and me….were gonna fight today at 3:30 in the back lot. she better be there.
I really liked the episode where Tyler yells at her mom like it really shows how she had enough of her, and then the mom starts to realize that she needs to be there for her daughter. I think that what Tyler did when she choose Lonny to stay in the dilivery room with her was a good idea cause he is the father of the child and he has every right too..
I think that people dont really look at the consequences when it come to having sex like its always going to be out there and im pretty sure that its never gonna change, they have sex as if it were a game thinking that it can never happen to them…
i liked all of them except i didnt like how it ended because i would like to know what happened after all of that. i would like to see a second series because i really liked all of the episodes and i would like for them to be a little longer. the only thing i disliked was how short the episodes were.
This was a really good series over all, but i think this episode was my favorite. I was really disapointed about the enidng though, I think it could have ended a lot better. I think there should be second series, it was really educational and people could really learn a lot from it.
I think that this is a good series. It is very relatable and you should continue with another one. I think it would be good to show the first year of the childs life so you see how difficult raising children can be.
My favorite episode was this one, because she finally gave birth to the baby, and i think they’re gonna do good with the kid. I feel like kids need to realize what they’re getting into when they have sex. I when we discuss in class i’ve noticed that everyone has a different opinion regarding the situation. My mom is very open about these things but my dad isn’t. The only thing i didn’t like is they way the ended, and they don’t tell you what Ty’s friend was talking to Lonnie about. It upsets me because they make it sound like he was cheating. Also, they don’t tell if Lonnie and Ty stay together. I’ve learned that teen pregnancy is prone to many problems and it’s not easy at all. If it were a real situation I think eventually Ty and Lonnie would be together, and the parents would start liking each other. Ty’s parents are bound to get divorced, and if not, have a lot of problems.
I would LOVE if there were a second series. As long as they don’t cut it off how they did. It’s too irritating not knowing that much !
very good ending i liked it…this videos are very good for teens. so they can make good decisions in the future.
Andrea’s Health class.
When Tye’s mom was removed from the birth, I literally felt a huge wave of relief. I was so hoping that Lonny would get to be there for Tye and get to see his daughter’s birth the way all fathers should. Also, I have to say that the infant actress who played little Leona was adorable, and she had good simmilarities to the parents. I was really happy when I saw Lonny taking care of her like that at the end, but the final line, “he better know,” made it all the more amazing, because it adds a little bit of premonition to the idea that rasing her won’t be in any way easy.
Thank you so much for making this series for us to see and study, and more than that, thank you for caring enough about the subject to even bother. There aren’t too many people out there who genuinely care about teenagers to this level, especially teenagers that you’ve never met. The thought and crativity that went into this makes it all the more real, and that also is appreciated.
Thank you again,
Katie, thank you so much for your comments. We really appreciate your insights, and awareness around some of the challenges facing youth today.
It’s young people like you, your parents, peer advocates, along with educators like Andrea…all of you have the answers, you guys working together, trusting one another, realizing what’s at stake when we stop caring, stop looking, stop dreaming.
We are very humbled by yours and the words of your classmates. We will definitely reach out as we look toward season two.
I feel this has key points that will get the youth audience to see the real difference of becoming parents.
Life or sex for that matter, isn’t a game.
I also like the editing. All the quick cuts fits with the attention span of most teenagers.
Will this eventually be seen in schools? Hope so.
Very well done.
Much Blessings and Love to all
Best episode.. I really hope it continues, the baby was adorable.
I also like how it showed Lonnie stepping up as a dad.
I think this is a good show to watch in schools because it gives more of the guys perspective than normal teen pregancy shows do. It also seems more real and its relatable. I wish the episodes were longer, or it kept going into the first months with the baby.
it was a okay ending very dramatic it is interesting to see how well the father might actualy live up to his expectations.
This was a good series, I think the ending could have been a little better. But other then that it was great!
Well, this is really scary to think about actually. ALL of it. Because my ex girlfriend WAS pregnant but had a miscarage. Scared the shit out of me honestly. i was 15 at the time. thinking “oh damn…im gonna be a dad..”
This was wonderful, I’m a mother of a 16 year old daughter. This is something that I will make sure she watches. You should show this in all of the middle and high schools. This is just wonderful. Keep them coming on different subjects.
oh and i want there to be another season as Paige said it would be great!!
This episode was the light in the whole tail of events the baby is born and nothing else should matter
:’( soooo the series is OVER ….”soooo upset” but completely happy that they had the chance to do this it’s a trulyy heart warming ending……..with a beautiful little baby girl…..her parents went through manyyyy ups and downs but she made it out into this world just as cute as ever ilove 9ine!!!
This eposide really was a warming one because it showed the life of the teenage parents new life. Lonney really touched me when he cried when his daughter was being born.
I really hope there is a season 2! I want to see how Lonnie and Tye are handling parenthood. I really wish it didn’t end so suddenly during delivery. I was getting so emotional as Lonnie watched his baby being born. I loved how he was there at the end taking care of his baby it was so sweet and I felt like it was real, because through out the series he was serious about being there for his child. He didn’t want to be a statistic and walk out on a girl he said he loved just because things became difficult and his life changed dramatically. I really wish more guys were like that and I hope a lot of guys watch this series. I am forcing all my guy friends to watch and I even have my boyfriend watching it now. PLEASE HAVE A SEASON 2! WE NEED TO SEE MORE EPISODES ASAP!!! =D
Awwww, how cute. This is really a touching show and it makes you put into perspective alot of things concerning teen pregnancy
I really enjoyed this series. I hope they continue doing these kinds of webisodes because i think people will learn to see how hard it is to have a child while being a teen.
So happy that you all enjoyed it!
In reality, now that the baby is born the hardships have just begun.
Season 2 anyone? ….
That Was A Great Show…!
I hope these series continues. Going to throught the pregnancy and giving birth is the easy part, its what comes after that is difficult. I want to be able to see how they raise this child together.
Tears: the series is over. Healthy baby! I wish I could fast forward eighteen years and see how life treated Lonnie and Tye.Thank you guys for bringing this to the public and I hope you guys are able to do another series related to this.
And L., thanks for checking out the series. Though we are not sure what’s next for Tye and Lonnie, we are continuing to look for stories that present challenges, yet do not define who young people are or what they can become.
As for Season Two of 9INE, like many folks have said, parenting is often where the “real” drama begins. Stay tuned.
All the best,
Nice work, great series!!! I like the subject matter and would love to watch a season so teenages get a chance to see what it is like after the baby is delivered.
i’m really sad that this is the last episode ,
i honestly hope that there’s a next webisode
I’m curious…..Why doesnt the baby have his last name?
Thanks for the question. I wonder if her parents might have had something to do with it. Do you think a child should automatically have the father’s name regardless the situation? Who should decide? Are there reasons not to?
LoveItt . . (:
Really great series! Well done, well thought out and well executed. You really don’t see real talent anymore so seeing how raw the emotions were was great. Would LOVE to see it continue!
so rdy 4 the nxt episode ,,, luv the way it felt so realistic, i think kids need more movies n sitcoms out there that will give it to them in the raw. show them how it really is not all peaches n cream.
cant’ wait until the next episode… u will be special not 2 bring nine back… it is so necessary..
AWSEM, dude u did ur thang wit this last eps, thn u put a twist cuz i was wantn to kno whts up wit tht girl calln lonnie bout whtever secret, major, major twist, but u r playing wit our meanng (the viewers) emotions of whts going to happen nexts. all 9ine eps, actor etc… was the Boom an im lookn frward to next seaon. so stop lookn at comments an start writng Mr. writr guy. congrads on ur FUTURE SUCCESS.
These clips has taken me back and emotions has risen because I understand. My kids father was there for me for all three pregnancys and I am sure he felt the same way Lonnie did. Looking at this clip has made me realize that I was not alone. Although I raised my boys practically on my own, my kids dad play a big role as well. I have come to the conclusion that I am going to ask him how he felt being a teenage father. Teen moms get so wrapped up in what they are going to do that the father is usually not included. I am currently not with the father of my children, which is how it typically ends up. I am now married to a man who has two other children and it has been a roller coaster ride. Teenagers need to think long and hard about the affects of becoming parents because it is no joke. Now that I am going on 30 and my oldest son is 14..The cycle stops here! I am going to educate all of my boys so they will know how serious this is. Look for more of my stories on my blog..I am also hoping to change lifes and help others cope with teenage pregnancy. Thank you all so much for motivating me to help others.

Nice touch to have Lonnie and baby in the final “real” sequence.
Congratulations on a great series!
I think it needs to be high school curriculum. or junior high?
I don’t think teens are going to stop having sex anytime soon.
Thanks for breaking it down!
Great acting, great writing too…
omg i loved the websiodes please countine with a full show it is so good i want to see where tye and lonnie go from here with there daugther!!
PLEASE don’t stop . keep the series going! it is amazing and teaches so much. this is the closest thing to a reality “teen pregnancy show” ever !
Very well done. Just enough so that young people and their parents can have the discussion and see that sex is not all fun and games.
