Personal Choices, Personal Power. Career Survival Kit for Teen Education and Employment.
Lindner, A. Frances
This workbook is one component of the Career Survival Kit prepared for teenage parents in Wisconsin. The workbook is designed to help teen parents identify their choices in preventing another pregnancy. It presents some thoughts about sexual decisions and responsibility. Birth control methods are described to help teens decide the best method for themselves. Making an informed decision about pregnancy and its prevention are stressed in order to help teen parents be clear about life choices and goals for the future. Activities focus on sexual rights and responsibilities, sexual decision making, short- and long-term goals, relationships and goals, and the consequences of pregnancy. Pressure "lines" that may be used to persuade a teen-ager to be sexually active and assertive responses providing a variety of examples of how to say no are included. (KC)
