Description - Teenage Pregnancy and Parenthood by Helen Holgate
Teenage parenthood is generally considered a 'bad thing' in western Europe and the US, but there has been little discussion of the cultural differences in how teenage parenthood is viewed and what sorts of policy and practice interventions are therefore appropriate. The debate of teenage pregnancy and parenthood continues to be a topical media and political issue, and a contested policy area. Covering the controversial issues, this book contributes to the debate, filling the gap in the current market. The strong chapter selection looks at areas such as: - education - social policy and welfare reforms in the UK and US - issues for young fathers - child sex abuse - girls with emotional and behavioural difficulties. This is invaluable reading for those working on government strategies to reduce teen pregnancies and those working in sex education and youth care.
