Many teenage mothers find strength in their motherhood role but this does not come without cost to themselves or their children, as many teenagers are considered unsuitable to be parents and do not have the right support (B.). For this paper I have conducted two interviews and I have also done research on why it is harder to be a single mother as a teenager. Due to the financial, emotional and physical struggles that teenage single mother have, it is more difficult for them to raise children than single mothers who are older. According to familyfirstaid.org , the United States has the highest rates of teen pregnancy and births in the “western industrialized world” (Teen Pregnancy Stats).

Many teenage mothers find strength in their motherhood role but this does not come without cost to themselves or their children, as many teenagers are considered unsuitable to be parents and do not have the right support. Today there are too many things in the media supporting teen mothers, even to go as far as having TV shows about “teen moms” showing children images of teenagers with babies, and now their own reality shows is not a good message to
For this 34 percent of teenagers their lives will change forever. Most drop out of school in order to raise the child. Their future went down to drain the moment they had unprotected sex. Distributing condoms in school may also lower the risk of contracting STDS. One in two sexually active young people will get an STD by the age of 25.
Level 3 CYPW-SC Unit 62 Assignment- Understand the issues affecting young people in relation to sexual health and risk of pregnancy 1.1 Pregnancy- Teenage pregnancy is a serious social problem and a key inequality and social exclusion issue. Having children at a young age can damage young women's health and well-being and severely limit their education and career prospects. While individual young people can be competent parents, all the evidence shows that children born to teenagers are much more likely to experience a range of negative outcomes in later life. Children born to teenage parents are also much more likely, in time, to become teenage parents themselves. While the negative consequences of teenage pregnancy are felt most by young women and their children, it is important that strategies to reduce teenage pregnancy also impact on young men's attitudes and behavior.
Teen sexually 1 Teen sex Unit 7 Project Teen sexually 2 The attitudes and values of teenagers of the 21st Century are more open and they are more sexually active then when I was growing up as a child. Teenagers today are different and start having sex at an earlier age and think nothing could ever happen to them. However, many of them are misinformed about the risks that are involved in having pre-marital sex. Most teens are not aware of the dangers of pre-marital sex. Within the school system there are many different attitudes and views in relation to sexual education being taught and is one of the most controversial subjects within the school system.
Even though the number of cases are high, a lot will go unnoticed this is because of a number of factors including not being able to communicate effectively, lack of education or understanding regarding sex and being socially isolated and not having a way of telling someone other than the abuser in confidence. Signs of sexual abuse are rectal or vaginal bleeding, change of appearance, physical injuries, STI'S self harming, depression, thoughts and attempts of suicide, bruising, soreness around genitals, loss of sleep and aversion to physical contact. Forms of Psychological or emotional abuse include threats of physical abuse or abandonment, being deprived of social or any other form of contact, humiliation, blaming, controlling, intimidation, coercion, harassment, verbal abuse and being prevented from receiving services or support. It is rare for someone to suffer psychological abuse on its own. It is often linked to financial abuse.
Due to media, peer pressure, and curiosity many teens and pre-teens are starting to willingly have sex at a younger age. Also, with maturity and physical looks a minor can no longer be pointed out by their appearance. The age of consent and statutory rape age range should be widened because younger minors and young adults will have sex regardless but giving someone a felony or misdemeanor and registering as a sex offender for consensual sex is unconstitutional. I think the age range should be from age 11 to 21 because age 11 has become the new age many minors are starting
Many of the sexual offenders situations are different. The offenders many have been in a relationship with a minor outside the age perimeters, or they could have molested a child. Without details all registered offenders are ostracized and their lives become difficult to be able to rehabilitate. Arguments opposing the widespread notification of sexual offenders feel that most sex offenders are not predatory. The overwhelming information of a new sexual offender report often creates unnecessary anxiety for the public.
Students with intellectual disabilities are at a greater risk for sexually transmitted diseases, more likely to be victims of sexual abuse, and socially inapt as compared to their non-disabled peers. The Center for Disability Information and Referrals supports sex education and believe it is crucial education that may be life saving. Students with intellectual disabilities, under federal law, Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004), have the right to the same standard curriculum as their non-disabled peers. Students with intellectual disabilities often go into adulthood sexually ignorant and IEP teams are not consistent with the requirements of the federal law often leaving the task solely to the parents.
