  1. 1. Wait to Be a Parent RaKeshia Bolds Texas Woman’s university HS 6453.50
  2. 2. Introduction  Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology from Texas Woman’s University (2010)  Masters of Science in Health Studies from Texas Woman’s University (May 2014)
  3. 3. Program Goal  The goal of the WAIT to be a Parent program is to provide the following for the high school students with:  An understanding of sexual health to reduce unintended pregnancy and teenage pregnancy  Increased knowledge of abstinence and contraception use
  4. 4. Program Objectives  75% of the students will be able to identify the short term and long term consequences of teenagers having babies  75% of the students will be able to identify the responsibilities associated with parenthood (being pregnant and having a newborn)  75% of students will be able to identify the assistance available in their community for learning more about teenage pregnancy, and for teenagers who become pregnant  Students will have a higher confidence level when it comes to delaying sex or using contraception to prevent unintended pregnancy and teenage pregnancy  100% of students will provide feedback from lesson evaluation
  5. 5. Priority Population  Secondary education students, 9th-12th grade teenage boys and girls  Teens are at highest risk of unplanned pregnancies, with almost 300,000 births among teenagers aged 15-19 years (CDC, 2013c)
  6. 6. Key Health Issue  Higher rates of illness and death for both mother and child are associated with teenage pregnancy (NCBI, NLM, 2011).  It is unfortunate that "girls born to teen mothers are more likely to become teenage mothers themselves, and boys born to teen mothers have a higher than average rate of being arrested and jailed" (NCBI, NLM, 2011, para 15).  Teenage mothers are about 2 years behind their age group in completing their education (NCBI, NLM, 2011).  Children of teenage mothers are more likely to drop out of high school and have lower school achievement, have more health problems, be incarcerated during teenage years, face unemployment as a young adult, and give birth as a teenager (CDC, 2012a).
  7. 7. Strategy Introduction  Personal stories about my close friends and family members teenage pregnancy journey  What do you know about teenage pregnancy?  What would you like to learn about teenage pregnancy?
  8. 8. Procedures and Methodology  Introduction  Importance of Teenage Pregnancy Prevention  Distribute and explain movie review handout to the student  Watch Juno: stopping periodically to allow time for movie review questions to be answered  Discussion  Evaluation  Closing
  9. 9. Procedures and Methodology Interactive  Why do you think so many teenagers get pregnant? Peer pressure? Naivety? Choice? Incorrect use of contraception?  Think about the difficulties face by teenage parents. Sacrifices? Responsibilities? Birth? Commitment?? Financial considerations? Education considerations
  10. 10. Procedures and Methodology Instructional  Explain lesson and movie review handout  This movie review handout has questions about some of the situations Juno faces throughout her pregnancy.  We will be stopping the movie to allow you time to answer those questions.  Once we have completed the movie we will have an open discussion about the movie or about any questions or concerns you may have.
  11. 11. Procedures and Methodology Educational  More facts and statistics about teenage pregnancy:  The younger a teenage mother is below the age of 20, the higher the risk of her child dying during their first year of life (NCBI, NLM, 2011)  Teenage pregnancy is a significant factor that contributes to high school dropout rates among girls; "only about 50% of teenage mothers received a high school diploma by 22 years of age versus approximately 90% of women who had not given birth during adolescence" (CDC, 2012a, para 4)
