Parenthood Education.
Johnson, Kay
This publication is a guide for teachers who conduct parenthood education classes as part of the secondary consumer and home economics program in Alabama. The parenthood education program guide is divided into four units covering the following competencies: understanding the family; developing maturity and independence; developing parenting knowledge and skills; and special concerns of parenthood. Subjects discussed within the units include a broad range of marriage, family life and parenting topics, such as life cycles, family roles, community responsibilities, establishing an independent family unit, decision making, parenting options, parenting readiness, finances, life goals, pregnancy and childbirth, birth defects, nutrition, baby care, child development, special needs children, and child abuse and neglect. For each of the four competencies, the unit contains enabling objectives that should be attained by the students and an outline of the content to be taught, correlated with suggested learning experiences and resources. An annotated resource list completes the package. (KC)
