Teen Parenting 101

Every teenager has dreams and aspirations. Getting the newest CD, finishing high school or buying a car.

A car … you know the kind, a beautiful, fast, red convertible that you can cruise around in on Friday night. One with all the options, a CD player, leather seats, a computerized dash, chrome wheels and a baby in the back seat. WHAT? A baby in the back seat?

For many teens, the “dream car” is not an option because they become parents earlier than they had planned. Having a baby is a big deal. It impacts the rest of your life, sometimes in ways you might not have thought. Cruise through our Web site to learn how to avoid those dangerous curves!
