7.5 Teen Pregnancy
Transcript of 7.5 Teen Pregnancy
By: Llewellyn Sterling Jr.
Discuss with your parents and guardians some of the challenges they have faced with parenting. List three challenges.
One: There is no struggle in parenting.
The struggle comes in when the child is the parent and the parent is the child.
Two: When it is stated, there is no option for the guidelines that the parent gives.
Three: The option is non-negotiable.
Do you think a teenager is ready for those challenges? Why or why not?
Do I think teenagers are ready for challenges? Depends on the teenager.
Why? Here is my questions for you to think about: If the teen can't act right in school, then how do you think they can't act right when they have a baby? If the guy doesn't pay attention or even sleeps in class, what would he do if the baby is about to something dangerous; where will he be?
My opinion about if someone would be a good teen parent or a bad teen parent:
Pay attention in class = Pay attention to baby
After completing your research on teen pregnancy, compare your life now with how it might be if you became a teen father.
Include how having a child might affect your education.
I believe that I will be a great teen father because I did not face many challenges as other male teen partners. I always pay attention in all my classes. I never fall asleep in class or get distracted, so that is me, and that is how I define an actual teen father.
How a child might affect my education: I would have to take my responsibilities and help out the kid even though I am close to graduating high school. Sometimes, when a teen mother and father have a kid, then they decide what do to. One option is for both of them to drop out of school. Another option could be that they can out the baby in a day-care center, and pick up the kid when they leave school. If I was a teen father, then I would "begin with the end in mind", and find a way how to both help out my child and go to school to graduate.
Fact: Teenage mothers are more likely to drop out of school and only about one-third obtain a high school diploma.
Fact: Teenage births are associated with lower annual income for the mother, 80% of whom eventually rely on welfare.
Read the two facts above and choose one of them. Discuss the possible ramifications for the teen parent’s future and the future of the child.
I agree with both of these facts. I say that both of these facts because high school female students are getting pregnant regularly, and is preventing both their education and their parents. This also causes an estimate of 33.33% of high school female students have a chance to flunk out of school. If they flunk, then they will not be able to graduate and even get a diploma. Teen pregnancy is a very serious problem in America, as well as other countries. However, the United States is the country with the highest teen pregnancy; towards the end if this presentation, you will see a graph of the countries with teen pregnancy.
One of the big health risks of a baby born to a teen mother is low birth weight. What are two risks associated with babies who are born with low birth weight?
One: The fact that low birth-weight babies may have organs that are not fully developed. This can lead to lung problems such as respiratory distress syndrome, or bleeding in the brain.
Two: Low birth-weight babies are exposed to mental retardation, brain damage, and injury at birth.
In addition to increased health risks, children born to teenage mothers are more likely to experience social, emotional, and other problems. Discuss two of those risks to the baby that are unrelated to health.
One:Teenage births are associated with lower annual income for the mother.
Two: Teenage pregnancies are associated with increased rates of alcohol and substance abuse, lower educational level, and reduced earning potential in teen fathers.
The teen mother has to deal with special challenges physically, emotionally and socially. List two of the health risks.
One: All women who become pregnant during their teens are at increased risk for complications, such as premature labor and other consequences.
Two: Teenage girls can also develop a numerous amount of emotional problems. Some of the emotional problems can be depression, shame, guilt, and even stress.
Teen fathers tend to differ in certain ways from their non-parenting counterparts. Profile the teen father.
Teenage males have high levels of involvement in key social institutions, providing many settings in which to contact and involve them in pregnancy prevention efforts.
The future for teen moms can be compromised due to the demands of parenting. What are two of those consequences?
One: About 2/3, or 66.7% of teen moms drop out of school.
Two: They have more responsibilities than they originally. One will be that they will be going out as much as she originally does.

Mrs. Libby Nyland
How would you handle the financial responsibilities that come with being a parent?
I would first start a financial plan for the baby, working on how much I save can everyday (and make sure I don't spend any money on myself).
I also would pray to the Lord for the financial plans and offers for being a teen father with the baby.
How would becoming a parent help or hinder you from reaching your mission statement and goals for your life?
I think that becoming a parent can help me reaching both my mission statement and goals in life. I say that because becoming a parent actually can be a goal, however, just make sure that you are "parent-worthy" on raising kids. I promise that when I become a parent, I will take full responsibility in both with wife and my baby.
