Improving Outcomes for Teenage Pregnancy and Early Parenthood for Young People in Out-of-Home Care: A Review of the Literature
Mendes, Philip
Youth Studies Australia, v28 n4 p11-18 2009
Young people leaving out-of-home care are overrepresented among teenage parents. This paper examines the research literature and identifies key factors that contribute to early pregnancy and parenthood for care leavers, the challenges of early parenting and the positive effects of early parenting. The implications for out-of-home care policy and practice are outlined, and supports and programs that may contribute to better outcomes are identified.
