Education for Parenthood: A Program, Curriculum, and Evaluation Guide.
Morris, Larry A., Ed.
This guide offers school agencies and community-based organizations assistance in developing effective preparation for parenthood programs for teenagers. The contents of the guide represent the culmination of a nationwide program, Education for Parenthood (EFP), whose major purposes include: (1) providing teenagers with the opportunities to develop more positive attitudes about children and parenting; (2) improving teenagers' self-awareness and self-understanding; (3) increasing teenagers' knowledge and skills about the course of child development; and (4) familiarizing teenagers with child-care possibilities and requirements. The guide includes information about seven national voluntary organization demonstration programs in parenthood education; an overview of the evaluation of these programs; detailed information about materials and specific experiences available pertaining to parenting concepts; and guidelines on how to develop and implement an EFP program. The guide can be used as a training workbook. (Author)
