Teenage parenting, particularly mothering, is commonly seen as both personally and socially undesirable. Governments across the world demonstrate concern about teenage pregnancy figures, setting targets and sponsoring campaigns to lower rates of teenage pregnancy and this view is reflected across society and throughout the media.
Teenage Pregnancy and Parenthood explores a broad range of perspectives on pregnancy and parenting at a young age from a number of international and cultural contexts, and looks at interventions and examples of good practice. Bringing together contributions from leading international academics in the field, this book discusses amongst other topics:
· sexual health and unwanted pregnancy among adolescents
· young mothers as peer educators in school-based sex education
· teenage pregnancy and social exclusion
· the needs of young girls with emotional and behavioral problems
· teen fathers - deconstructing patriarchy and masculinity
Teenage Pregnancy and Parenthood explores the contexts in which the critique of young parenthood is often conducted. It draws attention to the assumptions underlying policy positions and argues that these limit an effective consideration of adolescent sexuality and gender roles in society. It is invaluable reading for academics and postgraduate students, as well as policy makers and practitioners in health, sex education, youth care and related areas.
