Transcript of TEEN PREGNACY
Babies are cute and cuddly and they love you. But they’re also needy and selfish—they want and need your time
So if you decide to have sex, you have to considered the consequences of getting pregnant/ causing a pregnancy?
Almost 50% of teens have never thought about how a pregnancy would affect their lives
Know The Facts
Parenthood is the leading reason why teen girls drop out of school
Less than half of teen mothers ever graduate from high school and fewer than 2% earn a college degree by age 30.
Children of teen mothers do worse in school than those born to older parents
About one-fourth of teen moms have a second child within 24 months of the first birth
About 1,100 teen girls give birth every day
1 of 10 new mothers is a teen.
8 out of 10 teen fathers don't marry the mother of their child.
It's also true that these absent fathers pay less than $800 annually for child support.
ITS NOT WORTH IT...
On The Kids
Children who live apart from their fathers are 5 times more likely to be poor than children with both parents at home.
The daughters of young teen mothers are 3 times more likely to become teen mothers themselves.
The sons of teen mothers are twice as likely to end up in prison.
They Are Expensive
The financial burden of having a baby is considerable, with the cost of raising a baby estimated to be $11,000 in the first year alone.
Teen child bearing costs US taxpayers more than $9 billion each year.
