Synopsis

Pregnancy and Parenting The Ultimate Teen Guide by Jessica Akin

This book is for teen mothers and fathers who want to break the perception of unplanned teen pregnancies-that having a baby as a teen pretty much translates to being uneducated, on welfare, or from a teen father perspective, not involved in the lives of moms and babies. Stories from teen moms and dads are shared in every chapter as a way for teen parents to learn from their peers. From finding out they were pregnant and being a pregnant high-schooler to handling lost friends, going to college, and trying to be great parents, this book seeks to provide a new roadmap through true-life stories that educate, impact, and inspire teen parents.
