Is there a support group for parents with pregnant teens?
A counselor from school referred me to a local support group at a nearby highschool, you may want to try that. There's a lot more girls out there in your situation than you may think!
I don't know if there is a support group for parents with pregnant teenagers, but if not, there needs to be, because this is a epidemic, and these girls seems to be totally clueless as to what they're getting themselves into.
Hi, I don't know of a forum dedicated to pregnant teens. But I just started a forum this week for parents period. And speaking as a woman that got pregnant at 16 and then 18, I can tell you that it's not the end of the world for these teens. Having parents and/or friends and family around is the best thing for them right now. They need support and to be told that it won't be easy but that everyone will help them so that they can finish school and get careers.
If the teens are living with their parents, then their parents provide for them. The level of support is going to depend on the parents' financial decisions and there is not any specific requirement besides what is needed for the child to live and go to school. If the teen moves out, they should expect to meet expenses on their own.
Teenage sexual intercourse may result in the female getting pregnant. Abortion of the fetus is not a morally proper thing to do. Teenagers are ready to be parents; mentally, emotionally, or financially. The teenage parents lose time that they should be getting an education and becoming mature adults when a baby results from teenage sex. Furthermore, teenage sex may result in transmission of a sexually transmitted disease.
The first time to many teens have the sex talk with their parents, is when telling them that they are pregnant. Parents, if the teens have a sex queston with their parents, don't assume they are doing it. And teens, if your parents aren't talking to you about sex, don't assume they don't care. Teenage pregnancy is 100% preventable. Start talking. For more information, please visit, stayteen.org or abcfamily.com
Yes, continuation schools frequently have either a) programs for pregnant teens to help them out or b) day care and such on the campus. Where I work, we have a full day care center, free of charge, to the parents while they are attending classes. We have about 30 parents with children and 200 students (male and female, who were behind on credits) total.
When you chose to have intercourse there is always a risk of getting pregnant even if you are on birth control. Many times teens feel like having intercourse makes them "grown up" but yet they are not able to independently take care of themselves let alone a baby. Should teens get a benefit if they are pregnant...no. Do they get benefits...yes. Do they realize how much that helps...no. Typically teens end up staying with their…
It all depends on where you live. [country, state, city.] So you cannot for sure know who has the 'highest chance' of getting pregnant. But it has been answered that teens among the ages of 13-17, DO NOT have that high of a chance. The age group with the highest chance of getting pregnant were 18-26 year olds.
Many pregnant teens do not complete their high school education and few even attempt college. Single parents have a great deal of difficulty trying to support a child and earn a living. The burden of support is put on the state, putting all tax payers at risk. Children raising children do not make the best role models for the kids.
Teens often are motivated by the need to break away from their parents rules and secondly to achieve conformity with their peer group. As a consequence the use of profanity or in group argot, listening to loud (different) music and dressing in new ways has a great attraction as it realizes both goals.
To the girl; You cant pretend its not real, there's no hiding. You have a life underneath your shirt and you cant ignore it. Find a friend that you can rely on for support. Make a plan with your parents regarding school, work, daycare, finances etc and follow it. Don't expect your relationship with the father to last but you have to remain friends since you are now parents together for the rest of your…
