Teenage Pregnancy and Parenthood
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:
- 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.
