Success For PPTs

  1. 1. Success For PPTs California ranks first in teen pregnancy. Poor and low-income teens account for 83% of teens who give birth and 85% of those who become an unmarried parent. They are parent and pregnant teens...the PPTs.
  2. 2. The Blame Game <ul><li>There is a current spike in teen pregnancy among Pasadena high school – and even in middle school – students. There are many reasons for blame, most are cultural. The depressed economy, the so-called broken family and directionless youth, the influence of easily accessible on-campus day care for babies of student mothers, the glamorizing of unwed teen motherhood by Hollywood and the media’s obsession with pregnant celebrities and their “accessory” babies… </li></ul>
  3. 3. Poverty and Hopelessness <ul><li>The increased rate of teen pregnancy is a complex issue that is thought to come from a convergence of issues – the greatest of which may be poverty. Impoverished teens do not have the same future orientation as other teens with college in the future. They look for immediate access to the adult world by creating their own family…giving birth to babies while they are still children themselves. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Teens Have Sex… It Isn’t Going To Stop <ul><li>Teens need access to birth control and they need to be educated about sex and their bodies. They need to be focused on their strengths and how to use them. They need to know they are worthwhile and they don’t need casual sex to make them feel good. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Did you know 1 in 3 teen girls in the US is estimated to get pregnant at least once before age 20? <ul><li>While this is better than a decade ago, when the number was four in ten girls, it is still too high. Pregnancy has very important consequences for teen girls and teen boys, and their children. Having a baby as a teen makes it much harder for a boy or girl to reach their goals, such as finishing high school, going on to college, getting a good job, or getting married when they grow up. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Teen Success For All Teens <ul><li>Teens need to learn that success is not about smarts, looks or luck. It’s about becoming the best possible person you can be and making the most of their talents and opportunities. </li></ul><ul><li>LWCS PPT Health Workshop: Working with Planned Parenthood’s Teen Success Program and combining curriculum for use with SUCCESS for TEENS Slight Edge Principles </li></ul><ul><li>California Department of Education Health Standards for 9-12 Grades: Growth, Development, and Sexual Health, Mental, Emotional, and Social Health, Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs,Personal and Community Health, </li></ul>
