Parental Support of Pregnant Teens
Some parenting issues are more difficult to deal with than others and parenting a pregnant teenager through an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy is a challenge for most. However, parental support of pregnant teens can be vital in to not only the baby's future but also the teens.
Drop Out Rates Among Pregnant Teens
Drop out rates among pregnant teens show that teen pregnancy is the number one reason for teens dropping out of high school prior to graduation. With new efforts, the drop out rates among pregnant teens are beginning to slowly decline in states where assistance programs are available.
Smoking and Teen Pregnancy
Teen pregnancy and teen smoking are two grave threats to teen health. Yet statistics show high rates of smoking among pregnant teens. Parents can help prevent smoking and teen pregnancy. If teens are pregnant and smoke, they need to get help and quit, for their own health and their baby’s.
Tween Sex Statistics
Unfortunately tween sex statistics are startlingly high for such a young age group. Recent tween sex statistics show that about six percent of students have sex before the age of 13. Tween sex statistics also report that tween-age boys are more likely to have sex than their female counterparts.
