Pregnancy and Parenting The Ultimate Teen Guide by Jessica Akin


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.


This entry in the It Happened to Me series provides a wealth of practical and empathetic advice and support for both female and male teens facing an unplanned pregnancy. Akin addresses the specific nuances confronting teens

-chosen quotes from specialists in obstetrics that focus on educational guidance and family dynamics, among other things, all in a direct tone. The sections addressing potential problems-angry parents, breakups, pressure from religious communities, and more-are particularly helpful and coach readers on ways to maturely and responsibly resolve the conflict. Relevant photos throughout show a range of teens. This matter-of-fact guide offers no-nonsense advice and support to teens in the midst of crucial life decisions. Booklist
