Adolescent Pregnancy and Parenthood. Highlights: An ERIC/CAPS Digest.
Danziger, Sandra; Farber, Naomi
This digest reviews trends in adolescent sexual activity and discusses conceptual and programmatic approaches to pregnancy prevention. It discusses a pregnant adolescent's choices for resolving an unplanned pregnancy (i.e. abortion, adoption, keeping the baby, and marriage), and the challenges faced by teenage parents. The final section touches on efforts to include young men in efforts to prevent pregnancy, help young parents, and promote more responsible adolescent behavior. (TE)
