Straight Talk: The Truth About Teen Pregnancy

DVD, 2009, 16 Minutes, HRM, Grades 9-12

This DVD follows several stories; two teens who want to have a baby together, a young couple who don’t want to have a child until they are married and financially stable, two older teens who have already had a baby and are struggling with the commitment of being responsible parents, and a middle-aged teen pregnancy support group leader who learned first-hand the difficulties of being a teen mom. Important facts become clear such as only one-third of teen mothers obtain a high school diploma, only one-in-five teen mothers marry their child’s father, 25 percent of teen mothers have another baby within two years, and teen parents typically do not have realistic long term goals.
