Eddinger, Lucy, Ed.
Sharing, Winter 1975
Day care services, educational programs and other supportive services for school-age parents of infants are surveyed in this publication. Mainstreaming pregnant students and improving care for the infants of students are discussed and two day care programs operating within high schools for student parents are presented in detail. A program designed to enhance the childrearing ability of young parents by emphasizing their feelings of competence (University of Pittsburgh's Project Right Start) is also discussed. Recent state and local efforts to provide better services for school-age parents and their children are documented. Annotations of many audiovisual materials dealing with pregnancy, sex, child development, birth control, and family life are provided as well as information of their quality, cost, and availability. A supplement is included which discusses the needs of infants, the strengths and deficits of adolescent parenting, and supportive services for school-age parents and their children. (BRT)
